Ferrari 288 GTO

The Ferrari GTO was originally designed for the Group B class for GT racing. 272 cars were built from 1984-1987. This car is a 2-door Berlinetta, rear-wheel-drive, 2.9L twin turbo V8. It is sporting a 5-speed manual transmission gearbox.

For racing specifically atleast 200 units were required, however, none of these cars were used for racing after the tragic death of Henri TOLvonen and co-driver Sergio Cresta in 1986. FIA then decided to remove the class B from the racing. In turn all 272 units remained as road vehicles.

The 288 GTO was modelled after the 308/328, bu by the end of production there was very little resemblance. The 288 GTO had the larger spoilers, large “flag-style” outside mirrors, bulging fendor flares, and 4 lights on the grille. This amazing car had suspension that could be lowered for when you wanted to have some fun on the track. The 288 GTO was a lot lighter than the 308/328, with steel only used for the doors. Other panels were made from fibreglass, the bonnet from Kevlar, and the roof from Kevlar and carbon fibre.

The performance of this car is mind-boggling taking a mere 5 seconds to go from 0 to 97km/h. This car has a top speed of 288km/h ironically. It destroys a standing quarter mile in 14.1s @ 182km/h.
