Anyone have any good information about 288 GTO?
So far I just find the usual stuff like specs and whatnot, and that it runs I think it was 11.6psi (.8BAR).
Found one video of a bunch of ferraris on a highway playing which had a very short bit of a 288 GTO in it.
So does anyone have any good websites or information about this beauty?
My favorite ferrari and I don't know too much about it
Anyone have any good videos too?

Ferrari World used to have an episode of the 288 GTO (PAL and NTSC) and I think Forza had a GTO special. For a nice website, try google. Other books turn up at Ebay regularly.
Doomed for life with the Ferrari virus
