Coachwork: Scaglietti
Designer: Pininfarina
Chassis #: ZFFPA16B000054805
High bid of $410,000 at 2009 Sports & Classics of Monterey. (did not sell)
The Ferrari 288 GTO, or Gran Turismo Omologato, was a road-going version of the most advanced sports car ever. It was a race car for the streets. The design was by Pininfarina's Leonardo Fiorvanti, who had also been responsible for the 365 GTB/4 'Daytona.' Using the 308 GTB as a base, Fioravanti and Ferrari's aerodynamics engineers treated the car to a high-performance makeover that revived a few cues from the 250 GTO. It was given a built-in rear spoiler and three rear fender slats which severed as aerodynamic and performance advancements. The 208 GTO was longer an wider than the 308 GTB. It was given big bulging fenders, a wide tail, and four large driving lights. All of the 288 GTOs produced were clothed in Ferrari's classic Rosso Corsa scheme and all were left-hand-drive. The only example not painted in red was the prototype, which was yellow.

The powerplant for the 288 GTO was a 2.8-liter V8 (called the Tipo F114B) mounted longitudinally, forward of the rear axle. It had a mid-engine layout, mounted low in the chassis, giving it excellent weight distributions and stable handling.

The engine was aided by a pair of IHI turbochargers with Behrair intercoolers, an oil cooler and dry-sump lubrication. The Weber/Marelli fuel injection system was based on a Formula One design.

A first for Ferrari, the body sat over a tubular aluminum chassis. It weighed 250 lbs less than the 308 GTB, despite being bigger in every dimension.

Inside, there were few luxury amenities. The upholstered leather seats were standard, while air conditioning, a radio and power windows rounded the list of available options.

The 288 GTO had been designed to compete in the FIA's Class B series. Sadly, it never got the chance to compete in the series, as it was abruptly canceled due to track safety issues. Homologation standards required only 200 vehicles to be produced beyond the factory racers, but demand was strong and Ferrari agreed to produce an additional 72, making a total of 272.

This 1985 Ferrari 288 GTO has about 37,000 kilometers, or about 23,000 miles. The car has been used sparingly since new. It spent some of its early years in Europe, and later imported to Utah in the early 1990s by race car driver Gerry Jackson and later certified for use in California.

In 2009, this 288 GTO was offered for sale at the Sports & Classics of Monterey auction presented by RM Auctions. The car was estimated to sell for $485,000 - $595,000. Bidding reached $410,000 but was not sufficient to satisfy the car's reserve. The lot was left unsold.

The car was offered for sale at the 2010 Gooding & Company auction held at Amelia Island, Florida. It was estimated to sell for $550,000 - $650,000. The car would leave the auction unsold.
