A Special Group B Racing Machine
Initially designed to take part in the Group B category of rally racing, the Ferrari GTO was unveiled to the world at the 1984 Geneva Motor Show. While based on the best-selling 308GTB, the GTO was a completely different beast, featuring a space frame chassis and a mid-mounted 2,855cc V8 twin-turbo engine that produced 400hp that enabled a top speed of 305km/h. Lightweight materials were used liberally for the construction of the body, and the body styling itself was aggressive, with wide fenders and 250 GTO-inspired duck tail and rear fender slits. Although the cancellation of the Group B category meant the GTO could not show its racing potential, the car is still famous for initiating a long line of Ferrari supercars that followed it.
