The mid-engine, V8-powered Ferrari has been a staple of the brand’s lineup for the last 40 years, ever since the 308 first went on sale in 1977. Since then, the mid-engine Ferrari V8 has evolved considerably, but some are especially exciting and thrilling. I’ve rounded up five of the best mid-engine V8 Ferrari models currently listed for sale on Autotrader.
Although low-mileage cars probably aren’t good if you’re looking to actually use your vehicle, they’re excellent if you want a showpiece — and there’s probably no better Ferrari 328 showpiece than this vehicle. While Ferrari models are often used sparingly, this is exceptional, racking up just 476 miles in the last 30 years. It’s currently offered by Marshall Goldman Motors in Cleveland, Ohio for $259,900.
Like the Ferrari 328 above, this 348ts is an incredibly museum-quality car that’s barely been driven in the last 30 years. It’s traveled just 627 miles from new, and it, too, is offered by Marshall Goldman Motors in the Cleveland area, who apparently has the hookup for ultra-pristine 1980s and 1990s Ferrari models. This one is listed for $198,900, reflecting the slightly lower desirability of the 348 relative to the increasingly desirable 328.
The Ferrari F355 Berlinetta is one of the best-looking modern vehicles, and this is an excellent example of it: a red coupe with a tan interior, which was the perfect combination. Although some might consider this car’s early F1 automatic transmission to be a drawback, and rightfully so given its high maintenance costs and relatively slow shifts, there are a lot of desirable F355 models on Autotrader — and if you’re into the F1 transmission, this is certainly one of them. It’s offered by Scottsdale Sport of California in the San Francisco Bay Area with 13,250 miles for $89,500.
The Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale represented a new era in the Ferrari world where the brand began building high-performance versions of its already-high-performance cars. The 360 CS, as it’s called, was a lightweight, track-focused version of the 360, and it was built in small numbers — and values have always been strong. This one is offered with 25,200 miles by San Francisco Sports Cars in the San Francisco Bay Area for $179,995.
The Ferrari 430 Scuderia continued Ferrari’s trend of offering high-performance versions of its normal cars, and the 430 Scuderia Spider — called the 16M — was even rarer than the standard 430 Scuderia, bringing top-down driving fun to the ultra-track-focused 430 Scuderia. Prices are still very strong for the 430 Scuderia Spider models, and this one is listed by Ferrari of San Francisco in the San Francisco Bay Area for $359,000, with 3,157 miles from new.
