Ferrari 288GTO Wheels for Sale

Location : Vista, California No Center Locking Nuts included Used Ferrari 288 GTO Wheels by Speedline two 8″x16″ front and  two 10″x16″ rears Part numbers: 122454 front 122466 rear Price: $20,000 US Dollars Click Here for Ebay Ad   This looks like an  excellent set of Ferrari 288GTO wheels.  They  do not come up for sale very often, so it needs to be documented when they do.   The Ferrari 288GTO was produced fro 1984 to 1987.  Only 272 cars were produced so parts are rare.    You really need to find a GTO owner in need of a spare set.   Most of these cars are garage queens so its unlikely an owner abused their car.    I have yet to see on a track and pushed hard.   I have always been a sucker for knock off wheels especially 3 piece knock off wheels.  They are a very pretty 1980’s era design.  
  • 2010:  A set of wheels selling for $2,200 without center hubs.
  •  2015:  A set of wheels were for sale for $15,000 in Norway.

lamborghini-400gtz-1965-1 Lamborghini 400GTZ I was doing research and came across this car.  I have never heard of it so I thought I would document it. You may never get to see either of these 2 cars in person, but its pretty cool to know of some cars built by  Zagato for Lamborghini. According to the Lamborghini Registry there were only 2 Zagatos made.  They are both based on the mechanicals of the Lamborghini 350GT. 3.0 Liter  3500GTZ  #310 4.0 Liter 400GTZ #0322 ( presumably missing )  Havent seen with my own eyes but I have a lead. Inquire for more info. Elio Zagato ( son of the the founder Ugo Zagato) proposed the construction of a 350 GT with a special body for Marquis Gerino Gerini, a former F1 pilot.    Zagato received a shortend chassis and covered it with an aluminium body.
