The Ferrari 308GT4 was yet another breakthrough for Ferrari. The angular lines of the wedge era and the mid-engined V8 shocked people at the 308GT4's launch. Nearly 30 years later it shocked and even slightly worried Richard when he discovered the frame holding the engine in his one was made from pure rust in the Cheap Italian Supercar Challenge. He wasn't sure if the car could make it round a race track.
Richard's hope combined with the Ferrari's build quality meant that it could make it round a race track. But the 308GT4 Dino didn't get much further, suffering a complete electrical engine failure.
