LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1989 Ferrari Mondial
Ferrari’s Mondial, which was introduced in 1980, had always been a car for those who had to have it all. It was uncompromising in the respect that it coupled a mid-engine V-8 with space for four passengers, and it was versatile enough to be driven in anger on a race track or lovingly to and from the office on a daily basis. The Mondial deployed the 308GT4's 3.0-litre quad-cam V8 engine in a lengthened version of the latter's chassis. Transmission and running gear remained much the same, with five-speed transaxle and independent suspension all round. Although reckoned by some to be less sporting than other Ferraris, the Mondial was still good for 225km/h-plus and its ride quality and comfort scored over long distances. The Mondial was also one of the first Ferraris to benefit from zinc anti-corrosion coating of its steel panels. Considerably roomier than previous Ferrari 2+2s, the Pininfarina-styled Mondial has been described by Car magazine as, 'the closest you'll get to supercar family transport.' Developments included a proper (non-Targa) Cabriolet, the introduction of a more-powerful 'Qv' (Quattro-valvole: four-valves-per-cylinder) engine in 1982 and enlargement to 3.2 litres for 1985.
This European spec 1989 Ferrari Mondial was sold new by Garage Foitek in Altendorf, Switzerland on March 22nd, 1989 and remained in Swizterland until 2006 when it was imported into Canada. As per its dealer invoice, it was finished in the classic Rosso Corsa complemented by a Black leather interior. Important with any vintage Ferrari, this 3.2-litre Mondial comes with the purchase invoice, owner’s manual, warranty and service book, tools, jack and two keys. Since it was delivered new, it has accumulated only 38,890km and remains today in excellent condition having been maintained throughout the years. Recently it has had a major service performed and is ready to be driven and enjoyed!
The Ferrari Mondial is a luxurious, high-performance sports car and spacious 2+2. These cars remain undervalued in the current market and are a great way to enter Ferrari ownership.
