The ex-Carlo Facetti, Italian Championship-winning
This GTB incorporates all the special components homologated for Group 4 racing by Ferrari. The car was developed without sacrificing its essential Gran Turismo characteristics to any great extent, the focus of attention being on producing usable power while enhancing reliability and retaining its inherent near-perfect balance. Pistons, combustion chambers, cams and crankshaft balancing were all modified or improved, the result being an engine that produced around 320bhp despite retaining carburettor induction. Much attention was paid to the front suspension geometry, which was heavily revised. Adjustable Bilstein dampers were fitted all round, together with 12” ventilated brake discs gripped by Lockheed 4-pot calipers. Brake balance was made adjustable
