Ferrari 288 GTO Rebody at Bonneville Salt Flats - World's Fastest Ferrari 275.4 mph
This is the fastest Ferrari in the world. It currently holds the AA\BFMS
record at 275.4mph. This was done with a down run of 276.152mph and a
return run of 274.650mph. Unofficially the car has gone 292.3mph a couple
years ago under different conditions. The car is powered by a 540 cubic
inch BBC with twin Borg Warner 80mm turbo. The Boost level during the record runs was 17lbs.
We have built 6 of these cars and this car is the only on the does not have
Ferrari power. The reason for this is that at Bonneville classes are
separated by engine size. Currently Ferrari only builds engines up to 6
liter (V-12). To run in class B, A or double AA you must run larger cubic
inch engines. We have run Ferrari powered cars in classes F (3.0 liter) and
class C (5.0 liter) we also plan to run in class G (2.0 liter) next year.
We are Ferrari guy's and would love to use only Ferrari power if larger
engines were available.
Supercar Hits 714mph

(1149km/h) in the Black Rock Desert in 1997.
