Ferrari also built five 288 GTO Evoluzione models with more aggressive and aerodynamic body styling and increased power.
The engine in the 288 GTO Evoluzione originally put out as much as 650 hp (480 kW). With weight of 940 kg (2,072 lb) the car had a top speed of 225 mph (362 km/h).
These cars form the clearest visual link between the 288 GTO and the F40 soon to follow.
All five are still in existence with one owned by the Factory on display in the engine manufacturing facility in Maranello.
