Wouldn’t this Ferrari 288 GTO look great on the golf course? Five-time Ryder Cup-winning golfer Ian Poulter must have thought so when he owned this one. Then again, there’s no mention if it can fit a set of golf clubs.

Coulter owned the 288 GTO for 26 years. It’s certified as having a matching-numbers chassis, engine and gearbox.

What’s the thrill of a Ferrari 288 GTO? As Formula 1 driver Phil Hill told Road & Track: “The progressiveness of the [288] GTO's flow of power and its remarkable control are as good or better than anything I've ever experienced…The grip of the car on the road is phenomenal and noticeably increases with speed…As pleased as I am to see Ferrari competing strongly in F1, I'm delighted they will once again have a Gran Turismo car with true competition potential. That's what the name GTO meant in the first place.”

Find this 1985 Ferrari 288 GTO up for auction at RM Sotheby’s, with an estimated value of $3,750,000-$4,000,000.
