    Many Thanks to my pal Andreas Birner (FChatter Abi2612) I am proud to present my first Mondial. Andreas helped me already to find my 208 turbo GTS back in 2014 and managed the contact, the negotiations and the transport for me at that time.
    I was looking for a Mondial (especially a not-red 3.2 Coupé) for some time to complete the row up from my 308 GT4. In June he discovered 59769 near Roma/Italy, bought it and transported it to germany, where she (called now "Gabriela") now is at a refurbishing.
    I haven't seen her in flesh yet, but I got some fotos ... I expect impatiently her arrival !

    3.2 coupe with no sun roof. The best Mondial they made.

    It might be easier to import one. All (3.2) are over 25 years.

    Few were built. They just didn't sell. The motivation for most the get a Mondial to start with was to get a ragtop. Only ragtop Ferrari made. The coupe was the best driving car in the line up at the time.

    I respectfully beg to differ.

    The very best Mondial made, the very pinnacle of the Mondial experience is......

    The 1985 Mondial QV Coupe, in Blu Sera, with a Sunroof!


    Sid

    P.S - The fact that I happen to own just such a described car, has nothing at all to do with my beliefs or opinions.

    Interior is "pelle nero" , black leather.

    I wanted to have exactly this particular model: early 3.2 (Octobre 1985, one of the first), Coupé , no sunroof, and mostly preferred color was silver. It's a one-owner car with 44071 Km / 27384 miles at the odo. She ("Gabriela") will perfectly fit in the line with my (silver over black leather/texture) 208 turbo GTB ("Greta") and my (silver over red leather) 308 GT4 ("Ricarda").

    Very nice color!
    For me, I have a 1987 3.2 Coupe with sunroof in red/tan
    All original, all records. Extremely well maintained.
    Leather is in excellent condition, red carpet.
    Sort of hits all the marks: FCar, 328 engine, gated shifter, round taillights.
    Blast to drive.
    Bought it from Scottsdale Sport & Classic Motorcars.

    Beautiful Mondi! I was looking at a silver coupe in LA before my wife told me I had to buy resale red!

    btw would you sell me the Italian plates since you wont need them any more?

    Thank You, Don.
    IMO a non-red car is the better reseller. But that will only take fact, IF you will ever sell your Mondial ... ;)

    The original Plates are not allowed to leave italy. They have to be unmounted at the state border and have to stay in italy. Sorry.

    Your cars look kept in very good condition. The red interiors really draw me in. I'm a huge fan of your GT4, both boxer paint scheme and red interior. That is an attractive car. And to my eye, those early cars had the best dash panel and controls. I love the way it wraps around the driver.

    An enviable collection you have there sir!

    haha Markus, it is no way my intention bump into each other that way. Nice collection you have. I am still in love with the 308GT4, but at the time, and still, good ones are hard to find.

    A track day for Mondial owners sounds like a blast!!!

    Our local DFW Ferrari dealer arranges track days a couple of times a year. I've asked him to dedicate/arrange one of those days for older/vintage Ferraris.

    Just imagine the sights and sounds of 10+ Mondis of all vintages tearing around a track!!!

    If we get this arranged, there's going to be some great video!

    Looks great Markus! They are really fun to drive similar to the GT4, but you will notice that this lady is somewhat bigger :) Nevertheless the driving experience is just super!

    Nice tyre pads! where did you get these if I may ask.

    Yes, she's a big car, like a limousine, very comfortable to drive.

    The tyreshhoes have been specially produced by a friend some years ago, but he didn't do it anymore. They are similar to that typ of shoes. see link.

    First search for parts ...

    The cigarette lighter (front) is missing. Any sources where to get one ?
    Also the correct fuel filler cap (without key lock) is missing. There is only one with key lock, but I don't like it.

    Thanks for help.

    PS. got two "folded key" blanks to replace the incorrect "rounded" ones

    There's NO cigarette lighter missing. It's just a hole which is operated by pressing down the black ring surrounding the lighter. Element inside will light up.

    See owner's manual page 20/21 (fold out page) for details. My car is however a late ABS model.

    Yes, it's just a hole, but the inner part of the hole is missing, the ring to push down.

    Thank you, Wade !

    That is exactly the "cigarette lighter" at the rear/passengercompartement at my Mondial. The hole for the Lighter in front is quite different (see my first posted picture of it).

    Question:
    Are there two exactly the same lighters at a EU Mondial 3.2 or is the "Front Lighter" different from the "Rear Lighter" ?
