Nostalgic Wednesday: THE FERRARI 288 GTO Evoluzione

the Evoluzione Project

the evoluzione project

I don’t know where to start, but I will say that the Ferrari F40 is just too awesome in epic proportions of all time!!! (Insert Kanye West). A car that needs no introduction is the F40, for the car itself is already an introduction.  Rated by many automotive enthusiasts as one of the greatest super cars ever built. The F40 was the last car commissioned by the late Enzo Ferrari, built to celebrate 40 years of production at Maranello.

To most, the F40 is the titan of Ferraris, the late Enzo’s last hurrah, his Mona Lisa! Sorry to break hearts but, as much as I adore the F40, it is a rehash of our today’s Nostalgic Wednesday topic. I know it’s a bold statement to say but it is a known fact that the F40 was built as a downgraded road worthy version of the 288 GTO Evoluzione.

A Sunday Outing: Houston’s 5th Annual Ferrari Festival.

If there was any better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than with a bunch of Ferraris, I would like someone to step up and tell me so right now. As most of the Mayday Audience is aware, we are VERY partial to Ferraris, and this past Sunday we got to feast our eyes on plenty at Houston’s 5th annual Ferrari festival. From 360s to Ferrari F40s, plenty were out in attendance. Although slightly smaller than last years event due to weather, it was still a blast. Nothing like a bit of eye candy to cap off your weekend.
