    i dont know who bought it... but it spent years picking up dust in there work shop... i think till they closed the work shop and sold off some of the cars....this was in riyadh and not in jeddah

    i could do a chek on the number plate... but they changed the plates ages ago.. our new plates look diffrent 3 numbers 3 letters..

    Thank you in advance. I would be most happy if we could finally identify this rare car.

    On 21 March 1985 Ferrari 288 GTO chassis number 55235 was delivered new by Swiss Ferrari importer SAVAF Geneva (Société Anonyme pour la Vente des Automobiles Ferrari) to first owner Asmail Abobtaim, PO Box 3008, in Ryadh, Saudi Arabia. The car, however, was always kept in Switzerland. I don't think the car on my photographs is this car.
