1984 Ferrari 288 GTO

Unofficially referred to as the “288 GTO” (the 288 stands for “2.8 liters, 8 cylinders”), the GTO resurrects a storied name from Ferrari’s past for a new breed of supercar, one that led directly to hypercars like the Enzo years later. Intended to be the homologation spearhead for a FISA Group B race entry (making the “omologato” part of “GTO” appropriate), the cancellation of that series led to just 272 GTOs ultimately hitting the road. Bad for race fans, good for collectors. Regardless of its lack of racing pedigree, the GTO is competition-bred, with features like an integral roll hoop and a quick-change rear subframe for easy stage-side maintenance. In a mid-longitudinal position is a twin-turbocharged V8 making 400 horsepower, developed with Ferrari’s F1 experience. A few echoes of the old GTOs made it past the business-only agenda of the GTO, like the rear cooling slits that recall the fender slits of the original GTO.
