The Ferrari 288 GTO ushered in a new era for Ferrari and, indeed, the automotive world. Its debut was so highly anticipated, the model so coveted when it finally broke cover at Geneva in 1984, that it created the “instant collectible” market for automobiles -- those rare machines that always commanded a price greater than the original sticker.
The first Ferrari to carry the GTO name since the vaunted 250 GTO, it was clear that Ferrari had high hopes and was proud of its newest sports racer, the 288 GTO. Looking to compete in the FIA’s now-legendary Group B, Ferrari produced and designed the 288 GTO in order to homologate it for competition within that series, which called for a production run of 200 cars.
The model’s name signified a fresh powertrain and honoured a Ferrari immortal. The Ferrari 288 GTO identified a 2.8-litre engine of eight cylinders. GTO conjured up Ferrari’s 250 GTO race car of the early 1960s, and rightly so -- the modern machine was a road car designed to be eligible for the increasingly popular world of rally competition.
The Ferrari 288 GTO’s V-8 itself was vastly different from the one in the 308/328 series of cars. Besides less displacement, it had two Japanese IHI turbochargers to boost power output. Built on a sturdy tubular steel chassis, it boasted a wheelbase longer than the production 308 GTB, and it rode on four-wheel independent suspension. Considering the supercars that came after, the F40, F50, Enzo, and LaFerrari, into account, the 288 GTO is the rarest of them all.
