Ferrari GTO Legacy Tour 2024

Italian steeds to celebrate 40th anniversary

Exactly 40 years after its presentation at the 1984 Geneva Motor Show, Ferrari is delighted to announce the GTO Legacy Tour 2024, an exclusive celebration of the 40th anniversary of a truly legendary car. The Maranello Marque is organizing a driving experience for owners of the Prancing Horse’s first-ever supercar in the stunning surroundings of the Italian Dolomites between October 1st and 5th, 2024.

The Ferrari GTO event is the second edition of the Legacy Tour, following up on the F40-themed maiden outing in 2023. The latter saw 39 teams exploring a route that wound its way from Forte dei Marmi through the Apuan Alps and Tuscan countryside to Maranello.


The Legacy Tour 2024, on the other hand, starts from Val Rendena and crews will have the impressive Dolomites as their backdrop until the final day of driving when they arrive in Maranello. The GTOs will be welcomed at the Prancing Horse headquarters, where Ferrari Classiche’s experts and some members of the original GTO development team will reveal the car’s secrets. The cars will then be displayed inside the factory before the GTO Legacy Tour 2024 officially concludes with a parade at the Fiorano Circuit.


GTO owners wishing to take part in the GTO Legacy Tour should contact their official Ferrari dealer ASAP.


Ferrari 288 GTO

The Ferrari GTO was unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show in 1984. The power of its V8 turbo engine, its Pininfarina lines and advanced composite bodywork instantly won public acclaim. The GTO was the first Ferrari to sport a longitudinally mounted V8 with twin turbos. The 2.8-liter capacity, coupled with its eight cylinders, earned it the unofficial 288 monikers, while its official name is a reference to the legendary 250 GTO of the early 1960s.

Initially, Ferrari aimed to build just the 200 examples required to be granted homologation for Group B racing. However, major changes subsequently made to the rules resulted in Ferrari pulling out of the championship. The GTO, however, has gone down in history as Ferrari’s first-ever supercar and has since been joined by the F40, the F50, the Enzo Ferrari, and the LaFerrari. It also proved such a success that 272 were built before its production run ended.
