What it’s like to drive a Ferrari 288 GTO


Late last year, John Krewson drove a Ferrari 288 GTO for R&T’s 51 Coolest Cars of the Last 50 Years. The piece he wrote was published in the March/April issue, but that’s not the whole story—Executive Editor Sam Smith went with him and also got to drive the car. His brief thoughts are below. This isn’t a standard review or even a quick drive piece, as we didn’t get that much time in the car and the roads weren’t the greatest. This is just a snapshot of what it’s like to spend time with one of the coolest Ferraris ever built.
