The mid-1970s marked a particularly important era in the history of rally racing, seeing the introduction of legendary cars like the Lancia Stratos. More than four decades later, and one owner is paying homage to ’70s-era rally competition with a 1975 Ferrari 308 GT4 that’s been transformed into a safari-spec rally racer.
After being imported to the US from Europe in 2017, this “Safari Rari” was treated to a myriad of off-road-focused upgrades including fiberglass bumpers, four hood-mounted auxiliary lights, mud flaps suspended from rear chain hangers, plexiglass windows, alloy wheels shod in Fedima Club Sport F5 Rally tires, a matching roof-mounted spare, and a custom Alitalia-style livery inspired by the paint digs used on Lancia’s 1975 Stratos rally racers. At the heart of the 308 GT4 is a mid-mounted all-aluminum 3.0L DOHC V8 that was recently treated to a major refresh and a slew of new internals. The gutted, race-spec interior now sports four-point harness-equipped OMP racing seats, an OMP steering wheel, lightweight replacement door panels, a Sparco fire extinguisher, a race-style dash, a Brantz rally timer, and an extended and gated shift. This modified 1975 Ferrari 308 GT4 Safari build is currently for sale on Bring a Trailer in Beveren-Leie, Belgium through exotic dealership ClassicDivision, where (as of the time of writing) bidding has reached $16,666.
