This Ferrari left the factory in Maranello in 1986 as a black 328GTS with destination Germany. In the late eighties te car was send to the USA to Mr. Jim Carpenter who converted this Ferrari into a 288GTO. The conversion was carried out to the highest standards using original Ferrari spares. Mr. Carpenter has built six simular cars until he was called to come to court by Ferrari. Ferrari was not amused in these very accurate replicas of the real thing. The Judge decided in favour of Mr. Carpenter. The conversion is so authentically made that real connosseurs of Ferrari do not see the difference between this car an the real thing. Mr. Carpenter managed to prepare the engine to deliver an output of about 550 hp; where the real 288 GTO has only 400 hp. This Ferrari is also described in the book “Handbuch der Ferrari Seriennummern” by Matthias Urban, published by Ferrari World. The chassisnummer of this car is ZFFXA20A2G0062575. This extremely rare car is for sale at a fraction of the price of a real 288GTO.
