    Didn't the original 288 GTO exhaust have four pipes (dual exhausts with two pipes each side)?

  3. F40's predecessor? I think rather the 599 (GTO Link)

    Left bank running a little rich

  5. CHUUMPASS says:

    high performance cars with a high hp output run rich, and have a high compression ratio, so when you let off the throttle (e.g. when changing gears) some unburnt fuel passes through the exhaust valves and exits through the exhaust, which is not seldomly very hot, so the energetic exhaust gases/unburnt fuel ignites, hence flames coming out of the exhaust tips out back. 

  6. looks nice but actually a sign of a bad combustion design

    The GTO is known to be a flame thrower but…I think 5sec. flame is made buy a sparker in the exaust.
    Therefore my Beemer would do the same, if tuned for it.

  8. check out wankel rotary engine bridgeported throwing flames… that sure is a flamethrower..

    2 spark plugs and 2 coil packs and a button in the car, when you rev it up then clutch hit the button and flames, old school trick

    My all time favourite. If I could pick any car in the world, this would be the one. It screams "Enzo Ferrari" all over, made with passion by very passionate people. Congrats to the owner of this work of art.

    so how do you get all cars to burn this much fuel.. cuz if mine shot flames, id spend the extra money at the pump

  14. jorehir says:

    That's true fuel economy: the car burns as much fuel as possible to become lighter, thus more efficient.

    Ferarri 288 GTO defines new term in the automotive world: Flame happy.
