Description

The 488 GTB is a big deal for Ferrari. Not only because the 458 Italia and Speciale have been so successful, but because it marks a change of philosophy for the company’s mid-engined supercar. Gone is the naturally aspirated 4.5-litre V8 and in its place is a downsized, direct-injection 3902cc twin-turbocharged flat-plane-crank V8. It’s more efficient, but also massively more potent.

Ferrari could have dropped the ball by turbocharging the 488 GTB, but it has achieved the complete opposite and produced an automotive masterpiece. What the engine lacks in character compared with the outgoing V8 it makes up for with outrageous performance and such drivability that, no matter the gear you find yourself in or the speed you’re travelling, at no point does the 488 GTB make you wait even a nanosecond when you decide to call on all 661bhp and as much as 560lb ft of torque.

Its chassis is sublime, melding unexpected levels of comfort with unflappable control and crystal-clear communication as the pace quickens and you start to build up to exploiting the phenomenal performance on offer.

The 458 went out on a high with the Speciale, but in the new 488 GTB Ferrari has produced another hit straight out of the box, one that also provides huge promise and anticipation as to how the latest mid-engined Ferrari will evolve.
