The Ferrari 288 GTO (Gran Turismo Omologato), was the car that Enzo Ferrari expected to cause "love at first sight", with its iconic body styling by Pininfarana design chief, Leonardo Fioravante. This car, built at the Ferrari factory in Modena, Italy, is probably the most revered and sought after Ferrari ever built, and its iconic status is assured by its performance, rarity and beauty.
