Radical derived from the 458 Italia, the 488 GTB brings profound changes to the base model. First, the difference is in design with shapes that cannot betray the Italian sporty coupe. Gaping front grille, redesigned lights, cutouts on the bonnet to improve airflow, everything is there to remind you that 488 GTB is apart and draws its inspiration from models of races as the GTE 458.

Performances are brewing as for them outrageous. Trucking the V8 atmospheric 570 horsepower of the 458 Italia against a supercharged 3.9L V8 Turbo 670 CV to 760 Nm of torque, the Ferrari 488 GTB accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3 seconds and 200 km/h are achieved 8.3 seconds.
