Ferrari GTS Turbo

The convertible version of the GTB Turbo was fitted with the same engine and offered similar out-and-out performance. The body styling and cabin were the same as the 328 series and included all the latest aerodynamic and ergonomic improvements added by Pininfarina. It is interesting to note that this model, with its 2-litre turbo-charged V8, offered performance comparable to the 328, which was powered by the naturally aspirated version of the 3.2-litre.

Careful selection of the best shots of the GTS Turbo in high definition. The photo gallery shows the distinctive features of this model Ferrari in 1986, focusing on the details and the most important parts. The revised nose and tail sections featured body colour bumpers integral with the valance panels, which reflected the work done concurrently on the Mondial 3.2 models, with which they also shared a similar radiator grille and front light assembly layout. Thus all the eight cylinder cars in the range shared fairly unified front and rear aspects, providing a homogeneous family image.

The exhaust air louvres behind the retractable headlight pods disappeared, with an increase in the size of the front lid louvre introduced on the “QV” series, and a new style and position of exterior door catch was provided. The V8 engine was essentially of the same design as that used in the 208 GTS Turbo model, with a bore and stroke of 66.8mm x 71mm, and a type reference number F 106 N 000.
