Can anybody tell me what that buble is on the engine cover?
Is it only on this car (prototype?) I've seen pics of this before, but have never seen it for real.
I also thought 288 GTO's were in red only.

I think that buble is for the prototype only. But it doesn't seem to have a purpose, because the engine also fits without the buble

Surely a smaller price difference would be more appropriate.
Maybe not - it's a unique car.

If you want a 250 GTO you're going to pay MUCH more than that, and they're really common in comparison!!!

Well,

If you are not asking it you definately not going to get it! But I think 1.3 mill is really a lot even if it is unique! The Meera S is also unique (and no other car looks like it in contrast to this one) and went for some 100.000 if I remember correctly. I think even the Daytona prototype that change hands recently went for less than this money although I am not really sure. And this one has some more 'value' in Ferrari history!

I don't think it will change hands for this money and that half of that money would probably attract more buyers. But I am no expert on the market so everything is possible!

Really? I've seen them in red, yellow, orange, and black.
Must be repainted - I've read somewhere else since this thread that they were only made in red.

I didn't see it on the internet, it was in person. Before digital camera's, several years after they were built. That was why I thought they came in different colors, they resprayed it within 4 years of being built. Didn't have a camera. It was an orange similar to the Affolter Diablo GTR Le Mans of that color.

Why would anyone want this particular model uless it's for a museum. F288GTO are cheaper than that and if you're paying that kind of price it will be a "showcar" meant for concours events.

F288GTO's are meant to be driven, IMO.
