    As previously noted the serial number included 288 in the GTO line. Marcel Massini previously shared this image of the GTO on test with the emblem. The prototype wore the "288" emblem by the tail lights before the regular 1984 production change before the March introduction at Geneva in 1984. There were actually a number of development visual changes. The front bumper was initially painted red. Changed to black later on for the production. Also around the belt line there was a yellow stripe to.
    In 1986 there was a rear emblem "328" in the same script style created for that production series.

    The factory computer system (Modis) lists the "(288) GTO" as "288 GTO Biturbo" or as "288 GTO".

    How about a tailor made homage to your 250 TdF?

    That’s a great idea. #0895gt original color of Amaranto is the original Ferrari racing color (as we saw at the 1,000th Ferrari race). I don’t know how the VS would look in that color. I was thinking darker colors (Blue TdF etc) look better on the 812.

    I do think the Blu Jean Aunde original color / fabric seat finish looks great with a classic darker heritage red.

    Maybe in other countries but in the USA Ferrari is asking for a contract and a deposit. I heard the requirement from Ferrari, not my dealer when they called me to tell me I’m getting the Targa.

    Have they made the same calls and asking for deposits to people getting the coupe?

    Imho I don’t think they will use again the name GTO and probably it will take many years to see again these letters on a Ferrari car . I think all the 3 GTO were wonderful cars with incredible sound and very very limited ... lucky are those who possess them...

    I think this colour would look wonderful and tasteful on the VS. Hell you can even sell them as a pair (if you deem to do so in the future) in a high profile auction. Would definitely make for a great storyline :)

    Also, congratulation!

    Congrats on the Targa!
    So far haven't heard anything on the Targa from multiple dealers in Europe.....
    Spoke to my dealer today, he had no idea when more news/pics are being released to them.

    Sound like a Porsche? It IS a Porsche. They will call it that as much as they will call it a 911.

    Competizione? Doubt that very much. It is not a race car.
    Daytona? It was never official.
    812MM is a possibility.
    812M is not possible.
    But seeing that we received the video on Enzo's birthday, I think there might be a link there.
