In 1984 Ferrari produced a street-legal car that paradoxically and magically combined the most sublime beauty with a very raw level of performance. Developed beside the Testarossa, and using the healthy technical base of the 308 GTB. The car also bore a name already embedded in Ferrari history: GTO – Gran Turismo Omologata. The 1962-64 250 GTO is perhaps the most desired of all Ferraris, and amongst the rarest. It was a notably successful racing car, homologated for GT sports car racing in the golden era.
The 1984 GTO was a 2.8 litre twin turbocharged V8 with a power output of 400bhp (140bhp / litre) enough to reach 60mph in 4.9seconds or less, and with a conservatively rated top speed of 189mph. Like its forebear, the GTO’s real home was to be the public roads designated as FISA Group B racing tracks, for which series it was necessary to homologate 200 customer cars. In fact Ferrari built 272 modern GTOs, and because of the demise of the no-holds barred Group B supercar series almost all became road cars. With their blend of serene control and dynamic violence they have been called the most exciting automobiles ever created.
This stunning UK supplied car was collected from the factory in May 1985 and has had just four registered keepers since then. In total she has covered a total of 22,745 kilometres, which equates to 14,134 miles.
Fitted with optional electric windows, Air-conditioning and a beautifully patinated Nero leather interior, featuring Daytona seats with rosso cloth inserts, this holy grail of super cars, looks resplendent in it's original Rosso Corsa paint work.
The car comes with a comprehensive service history and has the benefit of being fully authenticated by Ferrari Classiche.
