So, what do we reckon it'll go for?

I saw one for sale a few years ago, but never saw any prices so I'm curious as to where this would be pitched, essentially a prototype, but also a ltd edition 288GTO, which are £2m+ of anyone's money, and also, essentially an F40? Curious.

Very lovely, however it often irritates when a fundamentally competition focussed machine ends up with an engine bay that looks far more Pebble Beach than Laguna Seca

Mega.
But, if you could buy it would you really take it to a track day?

What do we reckon, to the nearest million?

Even if I had the money, I would prefer the standard 288GTO.

Obviously rare and has its place in Ferrari history but it would be a 288GTO or F40 for me, rather than this stepping stone. I suppose if you already had a 288 and F40….

It's essentially a test mule for the F40 - It wasn't designed to look good, it was designed to test the mechanical parts for the F40.

It was also designed deliberately, to give no real hint of what the F40 would look like.

This was the Enzo test mule:




Doesn't look much like an Enzo, does it? scratchchin

(It was interesting to see they used a 348 front end and doors, rather than a 355's)

I'd imagine Ferrari would provide all you need on a Clienti day so I probably would, but your average session at Oulton or whatever, probably not.

As for cost, I reckon 3.5m

Eh ?

The 288 GTO EVO was built from the 288 GTO using the basic same engine and chassis for group B racing which got cancelled.

One of the built cars was then used as a mule for the F40 but it wasn't "designed deliberately, to give no real hint of what the F40 would look like"

Not a looker but very rare
Got to be at least two collectors that want this, at least £4m

About 20 years ago I happened to go past Donnington Park midweek and popped in to see if anything was on. There was a private track day where there was a 288GTO Evo being driven in anger. I didn't realise what it was at the time, as it looked like a dimma-kitted 348. There was also a Porsche GT1, a 993GT2 and a few others so it was with suitably esteemed company smile

Carrs of Exeter? Looks like where I saw the only one i've seen outside of a Goodwood-type setting

I'd say north of 6m
