Rare Ferrari 288 GTO of 1985. Why very rare? Because the prancing horse has produced only 272 units between 1984 and 1985. That is, she is the mother of all the special series of supercars with central motor of “the Cavallino”.
Today it would be considered as a "hypercar" and its birth was a precise will of Enzo Ferrari who in 1983 wanted a car able to impose itself in the Group B category of the FIA.
In fact the acronym GTO is the acronym of “Gran Turismo Omologato” while the number represents the displacement and the number of cylinders.
Presented at the 1984 Geneva Motor Show, a limited number of 200 units were initially planned, but the pressure from Ferrari customers was so strong that production was increased to 272 units worldwide.
The color was for all “Rosso Corsa” and they were all sold before leaving the factory in Maranello. At the end of the production Gianni Agnelli personally asked the Drake for the last two copies that were delivered to Niki Lauda and a Middle Eastern magnate. Recently a Ferrari 288 GTO was sold at auction by RM Sotheby’s in impeccable condition with only 23,555 km run. This Ferrari also belonged to the famous collector Hartmut Ibing and the price of “the Cavallino” supercar reached $ 2,310,000.
In 1985, five 288 GTO Evoluzione cars were built with a new, more aerodynamic and lighter body, reinforced chassis and a power of 650hp.
Simply put... I wish I had it in my garage!!
