In 1985 Ferrari launched the 328, which replaced the
494 GTBi and 1743 GTSi were produced before the model was succeeded by the 308
In 1985 Lamborghini released a Countach "
", producing from a 5.2-liter (5167 cc) Lamborghini V12 engine (64.8 kW/liter).
Two years later, at the 1982 Paris Motor Show, Ferrari launched the 308
, in GTB and GTS form. The main change from the 308 GTBi/GTSi it succeeded were the 4-valves per cylinder—hence its name, "
", literally "four valves" in Italian—which pushed output back up to restoring some of the performance lost to the emission control equipment.
The so-called "
" (four-valve) engine comes from the Griso/Breva series and has been optimized with modified camshafts for an improved torque curve.
Ferrari developed their "
" (or QV) engines in the 80s. Four valves per cylinder were added for the 1982 308 and Mondial "
", bringing power back up to the pre-FI high of . A very unusual Dino
was used in the 1986 Lancia Thema 8.32. It was based on the 308 QV's engine, but used a split-plane crankshaft rather than the Ferrari-type flat-plane. The engine was constructed by Ducati rather than Ferrari, and was produced from 1986 through 1991. The
was also used by Lancia for their attempt at the World Sportscar Championship with the LC2. The engine was twin-turbocharged and destroked to 2.65 litres, but produced in qualifying trim. The engine was later increased to 3.0 litres and increased power output to . The 1984 Ferrari Testarossa had a 4.9-liter flat-12 with four valves per cylinder. Almost 7,200 Testarossa were produced between 1984 and 1991.
was better received by the automotive press and the public, although some of the previous poor reviews for the Mondial 8 engendered negative perceptions that would follow the Mondial line throughout its life.
4 valves per cylinder were added for the 1982 308 and Mondial "
" (or QV), bringing power back up to the pre-FI high of 245 hp (179 kW).
In 1985 the engine design evolved again, as it was bored and stroked to 5167 cc and given four valves per cylinder—"
" in Italian, hence the model's name, Countach 5000
or 5000 QV in short. The carburetors were moved from the sides to the top of the engine for better breathing—unfortunately this created a hump on the engine deck, reducing the already poor rear visibility to almost nothing. Some body panels were also replaced by Kevlar. In later versions of the engine, the carburetors were replaced with fuel injection.
The first Mondial engine, although a DOHC design, used just two valves per cylinder. The 1982
or QV introduced a new four-valve head; the combustion chamber design purportedly based on the early eighties Formula 1 engine. Again, the engine was shared with the contemporary 308 GTB/GTS QV, and produced a much more respectable 240 hp (179 kW). Appearance was largely as per the Mondial 8, although with red engine heads and prominent "
" script at the rear. 1,145 coupés built between 1982 and 1985.
Both outside and inside the 208 Turbo was almost identical to the contemporary 308
. It could be recognized by NACA ducts in front of the rear wheel well openings and "turbo" badging on the tail and shrouded exhaust pipes; the normally optional deep front spoiler, black roof aileron were standard.
A very unusual Dino
was used in the Lancia Thema 8.32. It was based on the 308 QV's engine, but used a cross-plane crankshaft rather than the Ferrari-type flat-plane. The engine was constructed by Ducati rather than Ferrari, and was produced from 1986 through 1991.
was also used by Lancia for their attempt at the World Sportscar Championship with the LC2. The engine was twin-turbocharged and destroked to 2.65 litres, but produced 720 hp in qualifying trim. The engine was later increased to 3.0 litres and increased power output to 828 hp.
The "Dream Pack 2" DLC was released on 8 October 2015. It adds a number of new cars (including variants) to the game, namely the Audi R8 LMS ultra, BMW M4 Coupé, Ford GT40 Mk I, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus SCG 003C, Lamborghini Countach 5000
, Lamborghini Huracán GT3 and Ruf Rt 12 R, and introduces the laserscanned Catalunya circuit.
Ferrari acted quickly just two years later in 1982 to address the straight-line performance issues, by upgrading the engine with a new four-valve head. This model, the Mondial
or QV, shared its engine with the contemporary two-seaters 308 GTB/GTS QV. A new cabriolet version was also introduced at this time, a body style which would be carried forward through all subsequent Mondial models.
The V8 engine was essentially of the same design as that used in the 308
model, with an increase in capacity to 3185 cc, with a bore and stroke of x , and a type reference number F 105 CB 000. The engine retained the Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection system of its predecessor, but was fitted with a Marelli MED 806 A electronic ignition system, to produce a claimed power output of at 7000 rpm. As with the preceding 308 models the engine was mounted in unit with the all synchromesh five-speed manual transmission assembly, which was below, and to the rear of the engine's sump.
The immediate results of the investment were good. A Countach
, producing , was released in 1984; further work on the failed Cheetah project resulted in the release of the Lamborghini LM002 sport utility vehicle in 1986. Lamborghini were also looking toward the future, displaying the Countach Evoluzione, a prototype supercar almost completely made of carbon fiber, to the international press in 1987. The Evoluzione was shown during its testing schedule, which ended with its destruction in a crash test. However, despite the Mimrans' efforts, the investments proved insufficient to revive the company. Seeking a large, stable financial partner, the brothers met with representatives of one of America's "Big Three" automakers, the Chrysler Corporation.
Magnum comes and goes as he pleases, works only when he wants, and has the almost unlimited use of a Ferrari 308 GTS "
" and many other luxuries of the estate. He keeps a mini-fridge with a seemingly endless supply of beer ("Old Dusseldorf in a long neck"), wears his father's treasured Rolex GMT Master wristwatch and is surrounded by countless beautiful women (who are often victims of crime, his clients or are connected in various other ways to the cases he solves).
The rear wheels were driven by a traditional Lamborghini V12 engine mounted longitudinally with a mid-engined configuration. This contrasted with the Miura with its centrally mounted, transversely-installed engine. For better weight distribution, the engine is pointed "backwards"; the output shaft is at the front, and the gearbox is in front of the engine, the driveshaft running back through the engine's sump to a differential at the rear. Although originally planned as a powerplant, the first production cars used the Lamborghini Miura's 4-liter engine. Later advances increased the displacement to 4754 cc and then (in the "
" model) 5167 cc with four valves per cylinder.
