Make Tom Selleck proud with this retro Ferrari.

Rewind back to 1980, the start of a decade when acid wash jeans, big hair bands, and clashing neon colors were everything. Actually, that could also describe current times as the '80s are coming back in style and with a vengeance. Even the cars of the '80s are making a hot comeback, much like this low-mileage 1981 Ferrari 308 GTSi offered by Carlisle Auctions. With pop-up headlights and a boxy exterior, this car will bring welcoming waves of nostalgia for any '80s babies. Make sure you register to bid on this beauty, and mark your calendars for the weekend of November 8-9, 2019.

Also back in 1980, Ferrari debuted the spider version of the GTBi, and it was dubbed the 308 GTSi. The "i" on the end of the model name was an indicator that the car was equipped with fuel injection. Produced until 1983, only 1,749 of these old-school Ferraris were produced, and this included right-hand-drive configurations.

Blanketed in the bright hue of Rosso Corsa red, this Ferrari is sure to grab attention wherever it goes. A special ordered interior features two-tone red and black seats complete with unique stitching. Under the hood is a mid-mounted aluminum V8 engine backed by a 5-speed transmission. This Ferrari generated 214-bhp in European models ands the models sold within the US were given 205-bhp. This car reached a top speed of 149 miles per hour (240 km/h).
