    When driving I love the engine sound, specifically the intake breathing in during hard acceleration. The Tubi sounds ok too.

    It's small, fast and gorgeous: The side air intake is a masterpiece, all the car is a masterpiece. For me it's the best looking Ferrari since the 275GTB/4: There is no game.

    Of course I absolutely love the styling details just like everybody who owns one, and the sound is intoxicating, but if I had to choose my one favorite "thing" about my 328 I guess it would simply be the horn button. When I get behind the wheel and glance down at the same little yellow button with black horsey that has adorned the steering wheels of almost all Ferrari's, it gives me a certain feeling, as the French would say a "je ne sais quoi" that I do not get in my other cars. Kind of like belonging to an exclusive fraternity.

    Of course I love the styling. When I bought my QV many years ago I would often sit and the garage and admire the lines from every angle. While I still love the styling and the classic looks my favorite part now is hearing the engine scream under boost to 8500 RPM's and the 'pop' of the wastegate and the whoosh of the pop-off valve when I shift gears. Not to mention the rush of acceleration. From the first time I rode in a 308 in my teens, I knew I wanted one.

    The price. It's the most beautiful classic Ferrari that can still be used like an automobile.

    There are a number of things I love about my GTB but number one on the list is the ENGINE! As Enzo said " I build engines and attach wheels to them"

    For sure the way it simply makes me feel.

    It’s such an immense pleasure, an event to look at.
    To open the door
    To sit in it
    To Drive
    And to hear it.

    I often go down to the garage when all are asleep and lift the cover and simply take it in.

    Great topic.
    I've given it some thought over the past few days
    3 days ago it was the rear window contour
    2 days ago, it was the color (black on an early '77 GTB)
    yesterday, it was the view of the front fender tops through the windshield
    today, it was the interior door handles (that you can't see them)
    looking forward to tomorrow

    I love that it has the wheelbase of an MGB or Miata yet has a factory V8.

    I love that the factory V8 has a flat-plane crankshaft.

    The lines, the vintage looking interior (308) with those 70s looking switches. The Euro 308 is even better looking IMHO.

    You're very unlikely to find a big-money non-enthusiast driving a 308 or 328.

    For me, it’s the gauge cluster on the GT4 - the aluminum backing plate, with the symmetrical black-faced gauges is just...I dunno...perfection. It was the first thing that caught my attention when I was looking at Ferrari’s back in 2004, and it’s what made me take the plunge, so to speak, into ownership.

    That’s also one of the reasons l fell in love with the GT4,,the cockpit type feel of the instrument cluster really grabbed me..
