【 The First of Many Ferrari Supercars 】
Making its debut at the 1984 Geneva Motor Show, the GTO was designed to be raced in the Group B category of motorsport racing and was a homologation of Ferrari's popular 308 GTB. It was powered by a twin-turbo, DOHC 2,855cc longitudinal V8 engine mounted amidships that generated a whopping 400hp. It's lightweight body featured flowing curves, flared fenders, and 3 slits on the rear fenders that are reminiscent of the 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO. Due to the cancellation of the Group B category, the GTO never took part in competitive racing, but it served as a basis for the revolutionary Ferrari F40 that followed it.
【 GT-01 Chassis with 208mm Wheelbase 】
This compact R/C assembly kit is perfect for both indoor and outdoor driving. Its lightweight semi-monocoque frame has a low center of gravity and a durable roll cage for excellent balance. 4-wheel independent double wishbone suspension features a unique front-mounted horizontal friction damper system allowing for an accurate low silhouette. A rear-mounted high-efficiency Type 370 motor drives the rear wheels just like in the actual car, with a ball differential and slipper clutch ensuring maximum traction. Full ball bearings and universal shafts come standard to help minimize friction loss. Due to the Ferrari's longer length, the wheelbase was tweaked to be 19mm longer than the Porsche Turbo RSR Type 934's chassis, giving the GTO a much more accurate scale look. Separately-molded parts for the bumpers and side mirrors, as well as metal-plated 5-spoke wheels complete the stylish package. A full range of Option Parts are available to further customize your machine.
