The Ferrari 488 replaced its predecessor, the 458 and is the first mid-engine Ferrari to use a turbocharged V8 since the F40 in 1987.
It is powered by a 3.9-litre twin turbo V8, although smaller in displacement to its predecessor, it generates a higher power output than the 458’s naturally aspirated engine.
The 488 GTB was named “The Supercar of the Year 2015” by car magazine Top Gear, as well as becoming Motor Trend’s 2017 “Best Driver’s Car”
The only available transmission for the 488 is Ferrari’s F1 system, a 7-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox manufactured Getrag, based on the gearbox used in the 458.
Improved carbon-ceramic brakes are used on the 488, derived from technology used in the LaFerrari, constructed with new materials that reduce the time needed to achieve optimum operating temperature. Disc sizes are 398 mm at the front, and 360 mm at the rear. These advancements reportedly reduce stopping distances by 9% over the 458.
A new five-spoke alloy wheel was designed for the 488, measuring 51 cm (20 in) at front and rear respectively. Front tyres measure 245/35 and the rear tyres 305/30.
Claimed manufacturer performance for the 488 GTB is 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in 3.0 seconds, 0–200 km/h (0–124 mph) in 8.3 seconds, covering the quarter mile in 10.45 seconds and continuing to a top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph).
