488 GTB

The Ferrari 488 GTB offers a new chapter in the history of Ferrari V8 models. Inspired by the 308 GTB, which was the first ever mid-rear engine V8 berlinetta, the 488 GTB offers a new turbo twist. The renowned Ferrari 3.9 liter V8 twin turbo engine is part of the engine family that was awarded International Engine of the Year in both 2016 and 2017. This power unit is the most high-performance engine ever with zero turbo lag. The 488 GTB (Gran Turismo Berlinetta) delivers powerful performance with 660 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and 561 lb ft of torque at 3000 rpm in VII gear. Reaching a top speed of 205 miles per hour, this prancing horse roars with a unique and glorious soundtrack.

The 488 GTB replaces the 458 GTB in the Ferrari lineup. When developing the 488, Ferrari drew on its experience in both F1 and GT racing, perfectly blending elements of both luxury and racing. While some enthusiasts were worried the V8 turbo would muffle the engine’s roar, we’re glad to say that is absolutely not the case. The 488 GTB offers powerful performance combined with razor-sharp responsiveness at all speeds.

488 GTB

Designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre, the 488 GTB features muscular creases along the body form that bears a resemblance of the Ferrari 308 GTB. The 488’s sleek, streamlined body design also takes inspiration from the 458. The overall effect is a more aggressive 458, especially in the grille. The front of the 488 GTB creates a sense of power and speed and is characterized by dual grille openings which channels air into the two radiators. The tail is dominated by the blown spoiler. The new exhaust tailpipes have been repositioned to accommodate the greater height required for the diffuser. GTB debuted a new color called Rosso Corsa Metallizzato, triple layer paint developed to highlight this model’s super sporty character as well as its unique elegance.

The interior cockpit is inspired by Ferrari’s Formula 1 cars, creating a seamless relationship between car and driver. The new sporty and luxurious leather seats have a fixed headrest. Typical Ferrari traits of multifunctional steering wheel, control bridge tunnel, and separation of the dashboard are all seen on the 488 GTB. Meticulous attention was spent on the various compartments which provide generous storage space.

The Ferrari 488 GTB improvements are seen in mechanical efficiency, updated gearbox, redesigned shocks, internal dynamics, enhanced electronic control systems and aerodynamics. The aerodynamic underbody with vortex generators accelerate air, reduce pressure, and generate downforce. The latest evolution of the ESP (Electronic Stability Program) guarantees a more efficient ABS in low-grip situations. The patented blown rear spoiler of the 488 GTB allows air to enter from bottom of the rear window and exits above the license plate to deliver downforce. The rear diffuser on the 488 features variable flap geometry controlled by a CPU, integrated with other vehicle control systems which optimize the expansion of air channeled under the car. Everything works together to minimize drag and maximize downforce. The 488 also incorporates the Brembo Extreme Design brakes which are the most efficient ever developed by Ferrari and also found on the LaFerrari.

The Ferrari 488 GTB delivers a thrilling extreme driving experience and can be obtained at Continental AutoSports.
