Ferrari GTO Legacy Tour October 2024

  • Ferrari will celebrate the 40th anniversary of its first supercar in October with the GTO Legacy Tour 2024
  • The GTO event is the second Legacy Tour, following the debut rally a year ago for the F40
  • The stunning passes and breath-taking scenery of the Italian Dolomites will provide the perfect backdrop for these stunning cars
  • The route culminates in Maranello with a parade on the iconic Fiorano Circuit

Maranello, 28 February 2024 – 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 organising 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 by the end of April.

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-litre capacity coupled with its eight cylinders earned it the unofficial 288 moniker, 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.

The first Ferrari Legacy Tour finished on September 30, 2023 after an epic three-day journey on some of Italy’s finest roads. These exclusive new events are for owners of the most famous of all Ferraris. The first was dedicated to the F40, one of the Prancing Horses most celebrated models and, in the opinion of some, the most exciting Ferrari ever made.
