The Mondial saw Ferrari return to Pininfarina as its choice of styling house, and it was sold as a mid-sized coupé, and eventually a cabriolet. Conceived as a more usable model, offering the practicality of four-seats with the performance of a mid-range Ferrari and hopefully attracting a slightly wider audience than their traditionally more focused two-seaters. The car was not built as a monocoque in a conventional way, but instead, the steel outer body was produced by the famous Italian coachbuilder Carrozzeria Scaglietti, just down the road in nearby Modena, and clothed a lightweight steel box-section space frame. The Mondial was the first Ferrari where the entire engine/gearbox/rear suspension assembly was mounted on a detachable steel sub-frame, making engine removal for a major rebuild or cylinder head removal much easier than it had been on earlier models. Of the 1,145 coupé QVs built between 1982 and 1984, just 152 were in right-hand drive, with fewer still finding themselves on British roads. Supplied new by HR Owen, Middlesex, in February 1985, this original UK-supplied, right-hand drive, 3-litre QV is presented in stunning Rosso Corsa with Nero leather and Nero carpets and is fitted with a ‘sports’ exhaust. Our vendor purchased the car from a respected Ferrari Specialist in March 2018 and it has been annually serviced by them since then. Indicating 48,876 miles at the time of cataloguing, the Mondial is accompanied by a good history folder, containing a breakdown of servicing and MOTs carried out on the car from new, the original leather wallet, book pack and tool kit. B76 XOW features as the lead image and is mentioned in the text in a recent issue of Autocar magazine (31st May 2023). This beautiful QV is offered to auction with a fresh service and cambelt change by the aforementioned Ferrari Specialist at the request of our vendor, and an MOT until March 2024, issued with no advisories. Your viewing of this well-maintained Ferrari is highly recommended. An original, HR Owen-supplied, right-hand drive, 3-litre QV beautifully presented in classic Ferrari colours.
