Ferrari 288 GTO 25th anniversary reunion at Concorso Italiano - Click above for a high-res image gallery

With just 272 produced, the 288 GTO is the rarest of Ferrari's modern supercars. And because it wasn't officially sold here in the United States, there's just a slim chance you'll ever spot one on the road. However, with 2009 being the 25th anniversary of the 288 GTO's introduction, there was talk of organizing a record gathering that would bring many of the cars together. Joe Sackey, Italian car expert and author of the upcoming The Book of the Ferrari 288 GTO, took the reigns of organizing an event in Monterey this weekend, including a display of the cars at Concorso Italiano. We counted fifteen 288 GTOs in total, including an ultra-rare Evoluzione model that was used by Ferrari to develop the F40. Get your filling of Italian supercar goodness by browsing the high-res gallery below.

      Someone had a 288 at the Canadian Autoshow in Toronto this year that was for sale.

      Price?

      A cool $1 million.

      All these photos and not a single photo of the rear. Photographers need to know that pictures need to be of all angles. I have no clue what the rear on that evoluzione looks like.


      Good photos otherwise I suppose.

        I agree. I was hoping for a rear shot too.

      My eyes are all welled up with tears of joy and astonishment. My single favorite car of my childhood and of the 80's decade in general. A-freakin-mazing. And they even brought out an Evoluzione???!! Ludicrous!!

      Happy Anniversary to one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE cars.

      and it is pure automotive ero... well, you know... to see so many of them in one place, even in pictures.

      The pure symmetry of the twin intercooled turbocharged V8 is fantastic.

      The 308 bodywork modifed to be more purposeful, also got more drop dead gorgeous, a supermodel that happens to be an olympic athlete, as well.

      What a show, has to be one of the best looking Ferrari's ever made. Did they sell the Evoluzione or is that just the factories car?
