The Ferrari GTO (often referred to as Ferrari 288 GTO) is an exotic homologation of the Ferrari 308 GTB produced from 1984 through 1987, designated GT for Gran Turismo and O for Omologato (homologated in Italian).
The Ferrari GTO was built to compete in the new Group B Race series and a minimum of 200 cars were required for homologation. However, after the death of Henri Toivonen and his co-driver Sergio Cresto in the 1986 Tour de Corse, the FIA disestablished the class, leaving just the Group A Rally championship. As a result, the 288 GTO never raced and all 272 cars built remained purely road cars.
Some of the 288 GTO's styling features were first displayed on a 308 GTB design exercise by Pininfarina shown at the 1977 Geneva Salon. This included the deep front spoiler, fender flares, rear lip spoiler, front lid radiator cooling louvers and quadruple driving lights.
The Ferrari 288 GTO is a Tier 7 car that appears in Asphalt 7. The 288 GTO is the predecessor to the Ferrari F40. Strangely enough the 288 GTO is in a higher tier than its successor and the F40's successor the F50 and the F50's successor the Enzo. The 288 GTO has comparably low stats compared to the Aventador and the Ruf RT12. It's biggest handicap is its armor-the 288 GTO suffers from an extremely weak armor-Only at 68%, it is the weakest car in the game and easily wrecked even by pushing. Overall this car is not suggested for career. The Lamborghini Aventador or the Pagani Huayra is a better alternative for the price. If network is connected it costs 575,000 and if not it costs 875,000.
