Announced by Enzo Ferrari in September 1983 and unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1984, the 288 GTO generated a wave of enthusiasm. Its legendary name, Pininfarina’s exceptional styling, the inexhaustible power of its 2.8-liter, 8-cylinder engine, and the extensive use of composite materials made the GTO the closest thing to a racing car ever produced.
It’s one of the most coveted! Before Enzo Ferrari gave his blessing to the F40, the Prancing Horse was thinking of dominating the Group B World Rally Championship. After the 308 GTB, Maranello engineers developed one of the most sought-after supercars of the ’80s: the 288 GTO.
GTO stands for Gran Turismo Omologata. Ferrari was obliged to build at least 200 road-homologated vehicles in order to be eligible for the Group B championship.
As such, development of the 288 GTO continued with the road car, of which 272 examples were produced. In other words, the supercar designed by Leonardo Fioravanti is actually rarer than the F40, F50, Enzo and LaFerrari.
