Ever Wondered What A Ferrari Rally Car Would Be Like?

Ferrari’s intentions of entering the Group B rally segment in the 80s is well known but sadly never came to fruition, at least not as an official product.

Back in the day, Michelotto, one of Ferrari’s most known motorsport specialists built a handful of Group B 308s that enjoyed some unofficial support from the factory while in the UK, rally driver Tony Worswick developed his own version, which is the car you see here tested by Autocar.

Imagine now sitting in a fully-prepped Ferrari that weighs just under a tonne and is powered by a lovely 3.0-litre V8 engine that produces 310hp at 7500rpm and you will be able to grasp just how special these machines are.

Let’s not forget that the Ferrari 308 GTB was used eventually as the base for the legendary 288 GTO. Ferrari built the 288 with Group B in mind from the start but by the time the car was ready, FIA abandoned the series due to safety concerns.
