Two-seater Berlinetta with a stunning line, the Ferrari 488 GTB develops and evolves deeply the concepts of Ferrari 458 Italia, a model of which resumes some style cues and follows the dimensions: it is longer than a couple of centimeters and wider than one (respectively, the total measures are 459 and 195 cm), while the height is the same (121 cm).
The aerodynamics of Ferrari 488 GTB, which is active type, is extremely refined: thanks to moving elements, depending on the driving conditions, the pure penetration coefficient is privileged (so as to obtain the maximum velocity performances) or the aerodynamic load (which promotes adherence): the guide is exhilarating in the tortuous paths and absolutely precise on the “fast”.
A real turning point is the engine, a 3.9 V8 turbocharged, which breaks the tradition of the aspirated units and greatly raises the bar of maximum power: usually mounted in a central position (ie behind the two-seat passenger compartment), unloaded on the rear wheels 669 hp at 8000 rpm.
Accomplice the very fast DCT dual clutch and seven-speed robotized transmission, the performance of the Ferrari 488 GTB is supercar: 0-100 km/h in 3 seconds, 0-200 km/h in 8.3 and 330 km/h peak. The well-known passenger compartment (leather upholstery is standard) stands out with the well-known multifunction steering wheel, with paddle for the sequential gear selection and the main controls in the spokes: among these, also the manettino that allows to vary the electronic control.
