Cause a meltdown at The ICE 2024 with this Ferrari 488 GT3 EVO

Looking for a ride to show off at this year’s International Concours of Elegance in St. Moritz? Kessel have the perfect car for you: a St. Moritz-liveried, fire-spitting Ferrari 488 GT3 EVO.

With The ICE 2024 just around the corner — festivities kick off this Friday, in fact — the question of which car to take becomes a bit more time sensitive. Especially in the über-glamorous setting of St. Moritz and its frozen ice lake, where multi-million dollar classics and hypercars are the norm, it would be shame to turn up in anything less than a true blue-ticket collector car. Luckily, Kessel have the perfect ride ready and waiting for you: a magnificent 2016 Ferrari 488 GT3 EVO dressed in a wonderfully appropriate St. Moritz-themed livery. Even better, you don’t need number plates to drive on ice, so you’ll be able to throw up rooster tails of snow to your heart’s content. 

With Ferrari’s current GT3 contender — the 296 GT3 — dropping two cylinders, the 488 GT3 is looking increasingly appealing, especially in EVO guise, where everything is turned up to 11. Powered by a twin-turbocharged V8 that’s limited to 592 horsepower, the EVO improved upon the already-rapid 488 GT3 with honed aerodynamics, better control ergonomics, and lighter seats developed by Sabelt. In fact, a 488 GT3 EVO won the 2021 24 Hours of Spa in the PRO Class category, proving just how fast these prancing horses are. 

This 2016 example started life as a standard 488 GT3 and was later upgraded to EVO spec. This 488 GT3 EVO is a veteran track warrior, having competed in various championships every year from 2016 to 2023, including Super GT, the Michelin Le Mans Cup, and the GT Open to name just a few. With such a rich competition history, we hope the next custodian will feel encourage to enjoy this prancing horse on track plenty more times in the future. But first, we suggest you bring the heat with this 488 GT3 EVO at the coolest car event of the year, The ICE!
