Ferrari 288 GTO owners invited to unique gathering

Ferrari 288 GTO owners are being invited to join what will be a truly unique and spectacular event, a gathering of Ferrari 288 GTOs to celebrate the model's 25th anniversary.

288 GTO specialist Joe Sackey is organizing the first-ever reunion of the cars in the USA, to be staged during the famed Monterey Historics & Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance Car Week in California during August 2009.

The 288 GTO is successor to the legendary Ferrari 250 GTO. The "O" in 288 GTO stands for "Omologato" (homologation), showing that these cars with their period F1-based technology were intended for the world's racetracks.

However, the premature end of the Group B race series meant that the 284 examples built were never raced and were instead sold as road cars with phenomenal performance to a lucky few owners.

First of a series of iconic Ferrari Supercars in the modern era, the 288 GTO spawned the legendary F40, F50 and the Enzo models. Joe Sackey, author of the much-acclaimed "The Lamborghini Miura Bible" (Veloce) is in the process of writing the ultimate book on the Ferrari 288 GTO for publication by Veloce sometime in 2010.
