Police in Dusseldorf, Germany were notified that an extremely rare 1985 Ferrari 288 GTO was stolen on Monday. An individual selling the Ferrari met with a potential buyer that answered to the listing. During the test drive, the owner got out of the driver’s seat to let the potential buyer drive. The so-called “buyer” then jumped over the center console and boogied out of there. The car has yet to be recovered and authorities are reaching out to the community for any leads.
There were only ‘272’ Ferrari 288 GTOs produced in 1985. Powered by a twin-turbo 2.9L V8 this classic supercar makes 395hp and 366ft-lbs of torque. The Ferrari 288 GTO is capable of a 179 mph top speed.
If this car is never recovered it may be one of the most expensive car heists of all time. A similar Ferrari 288 GTO sold for a mind-blowing $3,360,000 at RM Sothebys in January.
