Ferrari 288 GTO owners are being invited to join what will be a truly unique and spectacular event, a gathering of Ferrari 288 GTOs to celebrate the model's 25th anniversary.

288 GTO specialist Joe Sackey is organizing the first-ever reunion of the cars in the USA, to be staged during the famed Monterey Historics & Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance Car Week in California during August 2009.

Interested 288 GTO owners and enthusiasts can find details and news of the event on Joe's website ( Don't miss it!

Successor to the legendary Ferrari 250 GTO. The "O" in 288 GTO stands for "Omologato" (homologation), showing that these cars with their period F1-based technology were intended for the world's racetracks. However, the premature end of the Group B race series meant that the 284 examples built were never raced and were instead sold as road cars with phenomenal performance to a lucky few owners. First of a series of iconic Ferrari Supercars in the modern era, the 288 GTO spawned the legendary F40, F50 and the Enzo models.

Joe Sackey, author of the much-acclaimed "The Lamborghini Miura Bible" (Veloce) is in the process of writing the ultimate book on the Ferrari 288 GTO for publication by Veloce sometime in 2010.
