Brrr! It's the dead of winter here in North America, quite chilly outside, and our blood is running as slow as 105W motor oil. So, what to do...?
How about a post to get our hearts racing? Something red and fast and gorgeous. How about... a Ferrari!
So to satisfy that, here's a Car Lust Classic by Chris Hafner. If you have any comments, please go to the original post and type away.
We don't spend much time talking about Ferraris here at Car Lust. Contrary to popular opinion, that's not really because we prefer oddball Citroens
and Chevrolet Citations
to Ferraris as cars, or even objects d'lust. Rather, it's because Ferraris are so obviously
worthy of lust, and have been so widely feted for their lust-worthy
qualities, that there's just not much left to say about them. The
Ferrari America and the 360 Modena are obviously brilliant cars,
but everybody under the sun already knows everything about them. That
fertile ground has already been plowed, sown, and reaped many times.
The exception to that rule is today's car, the 1984 Ferrari 288
GTO. This latter-day 1980s GTO just happens to be that rarest of
breeds--a limited-production, hyper-exotic Ferrari supercar that, due to
a strange combination of circumstances, has remained far more obscure
than its nameplate and performance would indicate.
