1985 Mondial QV 3.0 Is One Of The Best Affordable Ferraris

Classic Ferraris that sell for six and seven digits raise no eyebrows these days; make it eight, and then people might notice.

Nevertheless, you don’t have to be a millionaire to enjoy an old-school Prancing Horse. Enter the Mondial, built by Maranello in nearly 6,000 units between 1980 and 1993.

It came in two body styles, coupe and cabriolet, and the one you see here left the assembly line in 1985, when it was sold by Autodino AG Zurich, on May 30. Two months later, with the odometer indicating 1,000 km (62 1miles), it was first serviced and continued to visit dealers for regular maintenance in 1986, 1987, 1988, 1991, 1996 and 2013. The last service was performed this month, in the United Kingdom, prior to auction.

Speaking of which, the left-hand drive model that has a Grigio finish and Tan leather, will go under the hammer at Stoneleigh Park, between February 26-27. Silverstone Auctions estimates that the car will fetch anywhere between £25,000 and £30,000.

In spite having been driver for 58,000km (~36,000 miles), a rather high number in any Ferrari, it is “in fine order” and is accompanied by its service book and handbook in the correct leather wallet, new MoT and UK registration.
