The Ferrari 288 GTO is an automotive icon produced by the Italian supercar manufacturer in the mid-1980s. It is considered by many to be the first of Ferrari’s most coveted models, leading the way for others such as the F40, F50, and Enzo. Originally designed to compete in the FIA Group B racing series, the 288 GTO was never actually entered into any races due to the series being canceled. As part of his newest YouTube upload, Ferrari Collector David Lee pulls out the 1985 288 GTO from his impressive collection of classic and modern Ferrari examples.
Fitting the 80s classic with a driver POV and rear-mounted camera, David sets off on what is only best described as the ultimate 288 GTO drive. The joyride captures the visceral experience of shifting through Ferrari’s 5-speed gated manual transmission with a 395 horsepower 2.9L Twin-Turbocharged V8 just behind David’s head. While listening to the musical sound of the turbos spooling under acceleration, David gives viewers an up-close look at the interior and some of the options featured on his car. Enlightening and informing enthusiasts on what it’s like to drive Ferrari’s first supercar, David Lee continues to become the perfect Ferrari Ambassador.
