What's it like to drive the 488 GTB? Kind of like riding a hurricane, or a stallion...or 661 stallions, at the same time. Yes, the 488's new 3.9L twin-turbo V8 engine delivers an unprecedented amount of raw power. Capable of accelerating 0-62 MPH in 3 seconds flat, 0-124 MPH, in only 8.3, and lapping Ferrari's Fiorano test track in only 1:23, the Ferrari 488 GTB is crazy fast.
Yet Ferrari hasn't sacrificed finesse and precision in the pursuit of speed. The 2016 488 GTB's updated gearbox, redesigned shocks, and enhanced electronic control systems all do their part to make the driving experience effortlessly fluid and responsive. Inside, the 488 GTB blends luxury with racing-inspired features exactly the way a Ferrari should. A few choice updates that set it apart from the older 458 include brand new seats and a cleaner, more refined center console design.
Gorgeous Design, Outstanding Aerodynamics
Everything about the 2016 Ferrari 488 GTB is aerodynamic, and we mean everything. Even the door handles are specially shaped to direct the air around them toward the massive, 308-inspired air intake scallops behind. With a new double front spoiler, blown diffuser, and six vortex-generating fins tucked underneath the body, this Ferrari slices through the air like a hot knife through butter.
The 488's sleek, streamlined body design takes inspiration from the 458, while also paying homage to the LaFerrari and the original 1975 308 GTB. The overall effect is a little beefier and more aggressive than the 458, especially in the grille. This is one lean, mean machine. And it sounds sexy, too. While some enthusiasts were worried those turbos would muffle this beast of an engine's roar, we're glad to say that is emphatically not the case. You'll hear a little more bass when this baby sings her heart out, and we love it.
