The 1984 FERRARI 308 GTSi ‘MAGNUM PI’ car with the number plate ‘ROBIN 1’ and US-spec bumper, featured in the final 7th and 8th season of the television series Magnum, P.I. in which the series' lead, Thomas Magnum (Tom Selleck) drove it around Oahu for 8 seasons from 1980 to 1988. This V8 mid-engined, two-seater sports cars manufactured between 1975 to 1985 replaced the Dino 246 GT and GTS in 1975. In 1982, Ferrari launched the ‘Quattrovalvole’ with the main change being four valves per cylinder which returned output to 240 hp (179 kW) restoring some of the performance lost to the emission control. The new model was recognized by the additional louvered panel in the front lid to aid radiator exhaust air exit, power-operated mirrors, a redesigned radiator grille with rectangular driving lights on each side, and rectangular side repeaters.
