Ferrari’s Breathtaking 488 GTB

Ferrari 488 GTB

The Ferrari 488 GTB is the first Ferrari since the 1970’s to use  Turbochargers in an entry level engine.  Being the successor to the famed 458 Italia, it will have big shoes to fill.  It is assembled in Maranello, Italy and was designed by Ferrari’s Senior Vice President of Design Flavio Manzoni.  The 488 is powered by a 3.9 litre twin turbo charged v8, its display might be smaller but is higher in output than the naturally pursued engine it succeeded.  The 488’s increased size of the diffuser over the previous 458 requires the twin exhaust of the 488 to be positioned overhead the rear bumper for clearance.  Its body is designed to increase down force by 50% over the 458’s whilst reducing aerodynamic drag.  The 488 is without a doubt Ferrari’s most breath taking production vehicle to date.
