THE MOTORCAR OFFERED
This car is a stunning example of the 315 imported to North America in 1987. Purchased at Hollywood Sport Cars in 1987 with an MSRP of $121,150, standard equipment included Marelli Microplex ignition, Bosch KE-Jetronic fuel injection, air conditioning, Connolly leather interior, electric windows, electric door locks, heated rear window, quartz clock, stereo speakers and antenna, and limited slip differential. The car today retains its pristine original running gear. It cruises on single-bolt light alloys, 8×16 inches in front and 10 x 16 inches at the rear, shod with newer Goodyear high-performance radials, size 225/50 in front and 255/50 at the rear.

Included with the sale is a complete set of bespoke Schedoni luggage, set of tools, booklets and manual, original spare tire, car cover, spare parts manual, a spare European-spec exhaust system (car has stock exhaust), and all paperwork.
