Lot #70 - This Ferrari Mondial 3.2 Cabriolet has true 2+2 seating. It is possible to sit (in the rear seat) one or two average-sized adults for short to mid-distance drives, and children or smaller adults for longer drives. In 1985, the Mondial Cabriolet received the 3.2 Liter engine from the 328GTB. This boosted the horsepower and reduced the 0-60 time significantly. The new engine provides 270 horsepower and allows 0-60 to be done in 6.8 seconds. This car has only 12, 500 original miles. Underpinnings closely mirrored those of the GT4, with a sturdy tubular steel chassis, independent suspension, transversely mounted 3.2 liter V8 and 5-speed gearbox. In two notable changes, the wheelbase was lengthened some 4" (100mm) for better interior packaging and space, and a separate subframe carried the engine and transmission. This latter item allowed the drivetrain to be unbolted and removed more quickly for easier servicing. Ferrari, in 1982, installed its new quattrovalvole (four valve) V8. The change injected real snap into the Mondial's performance. Motor magazine ran the 1982 four-valve Mondial to 60 mph in 6.4 seconds and to 100 mph in 16.2. In 1984, the Mondial Cabriolet debuted and was the first convertible Ferrari since the Daytona Spyder. The Mondial 3.2 appeared in 1985, the redesignation signifying a larger, stronger V8 (3.2 liters, 260-270 hp, as seen in the 328 GTB & GTS).
