Vrooming Through the Dolomites: Ferrari’s GTO Turns 40 with a Scenic Birthday Bash

Maranello, 28 February 2024 – It’s party time for Ferrari’s first-born supercar as the GTO hits the big 4-0! Ferrari is gearing up to mark this milestone with the GTO Legacy Tour 2024, a scenic extravaganza set against the jaw-dropping Italian Dolomites. Scheduled from October 1st to 5th, this celebratory drive will take GTO enthusiasts on a journey that’s as legendary as the car itself.

The event, rolling out the red carpet in Val Rendena, is the second of its kind, following last year’s inaugural rally that celebrated the F40. The 2023 tour was a spectacle that took 39 teams from Forte dei Marmi to Maranello, cruising through the Apuan Alps and Tuscan landscapes. But this year, it’s all about the GTO, Ferrari’s pioneering supercar, with a route that promises breathtaking vistas until the grand finale at the Prancing Horse’s headquarters in Maranello.

The climax of this high-octane escapade is a parade at the iconic Fiorano Circuit, where GTO owners can unleash the full potential of their prized possessions. And it’s not just about the drive; Ferrari Classiche’s experts, along with some of the original GTO development team, will spill the beans on the car’s best-kept secrets.

For those lucky enough to own a piece of this motoring legend, it’s time to speed dial your dealer – registrations close by the end of April.

A Bit About the GTO: Unveiled at the 1984 Geneva Motor Show, the Ferrari GTO roared into the spotlight with its V8 turbo engine and sleek Pininfarina design. This trailblazer was the first of its kind with a longitudinally mounted V8, and its 2.8-liter turbocharged power earned it the nickname ‘288’. Though initially intended for Group B racing, the GTO never hit the track but still raced into the hearts of car enthusiasts worldwide. With 272 units ultimately produced, it set the stage for future Ferrari marvels like the F40, F50, Enzo Ferrari, and LaFerrari. The GTO Legacy Tour 2024 is not just a celebration of a car; it’s a tribute to a legend that paved the way for supercars as we know them.
