Newsletter 222: Gran Turismo Omologato

Gran Turismo Omologato

Gran Turismo Omologato
An intriguing Italian phrase hides in the name of one of the most iconic sport cars of the 80s, the Ferrari 288 GTO. A gorgeous machine with 2800cc inside his V8 engine and hyper aggressive lines for that time.

Such beauty was turned into a scale model by Fujimi long ago, in an extensive and detailed kit with 250 parts, and is now back in our shelves.

Are you going to let this "Gran Model Omologato" run away at SpotModel? :)
