    The coinart Firenze are after market (or so I believe). Back in '85 my 308 came new with two Lorioli fobs. I also ordered two spare sets of keys and fobs from FAF. Those fobs were coinat Fienze. Examining the two they are very different in appearance. Lorioli on the left. Also these are both circa 1985.

    Hi, I have the black plastic tab as well as that small key that has two prongs - the smallest one on the key ring on the right in your picture - what is it for? I can't find anything that fits that key?

    I am told the little key like thing with two prongs is for lifting the antenna. I also have one with my '79 but it has a power antenna so it does not make much sense. I would be curious if others know what it is for if not the antenna.

    It is for the lock on the pouch on the back of the passenger seat on a GTS.

    Here are a few. All Lorioli and all original for any 308 or 328. All other fobs are later production.

    The fobs with the thin prancing horse are early 70s Lorioli, the ones with the "wider" prancing horse are late 70s/early 80s.

    When my car arrives it'll have one put straight on the keys!

    Any other obscure accessories people have? I've seen a few Lorioli lapel pins, and a very nice Schedoni leather wash kit (like the 348 tool kit).

    I too have a few of Sigmacar's folding keys. VERY Well made I think.


    The original fob is what I was thinking of. I have seen them go for 4-figures west of the decimal point..

    Thanks for posting Alberto. Now I know who made my key fob (post 33) and what it looked like when new and how beat-up line looks in comparison. I don't know what the metal parts are, but the fob is relatively heavy and the plating on the square link is wearing off on mine, revealing a copper color. Jon

    handle it with care, it's quite expensive: maybe you had better to store it and use a cheaper keyholder... ;)

    That's what I've done since I learned how expensive they are to replace. Same with the jack, tool roll, service books, etc.. Cheers, Jon

    I have a great key holder, I made many of them with the plans of handing them to select kids who get to sit in a Ferrari for the first time.

    I got a bunch of the plastic key fobs that you separate the two halves (approx. 1 inch by 2 1/2 inches) and put a logo inside. I printed the Ferrari Logo (prancing horse) and glued the covers closed.

    I'd post a picture, but I ran out of my introductory picture rights

    If so, I need one

    To Each His Own,

    I wouldn't pay that even if it came with gold plated keys and a new ignition switch
