9. 1984 Ferrari 288 GTO

Produced from 1984 through 1987, designated GT for Gran Turismo, the 1984 Ferrari 288 GTO is an exotic homologation of the Ferrari 308 GTB.

The plan for the 288 GTO was to compete in the new Group B Race series and a minimum of 200 cars were required for homologation.

But unfortunately, after the tragic death of Henri Toivonen and his co-driver Sergio Cresto in the 1986 Tour de Corse, FIA decided to disestablished the class, leaving just the Group A Rally championship.

And that’s how all 272 cars built remained purely road cars, and never had the chance to race.

Nevertheless, in 2004 Sports Car International named this car number two on the list of Top Sports Cars of the 1980s.
