About the Ferrari 488 GTB
The latest in a long line of mid-engined Ferraris, the 488 GTB, worthy of the drool, is an exotic two-seater worth celebrating with a poster on the wall in your room. This style is shaped as much by aerodynamics as by his talented Italian designers. In addition to the standard 488 Berlinetta, there is a retractable hardtop Spider and the new Pista model for 2019, with its harder, single-cut core, which adds even more heat.
Engines, Driving and Handling
With a center-mounted, 3.9-liter, bi-turbo V-8, the 488GTB generates a loud roar and ferocious acceleration up to 8,000 rpm, producing 661 horsepower. A seven-speed automatic dual-clutch transmission is the only transmission; we estimate that it is capable of a zero to 60 mph time of 3.0 seconds. Ferrari adaptive suspension is relatively consistent without sacrificing handling. The Pista model is even more powerful, develops 710 horsepower and should reach 60 mph in less than three seconds. Pista means track in Italian and this special edition is certainly able to tear it up with rivals such as the McLaren 720S and the Lamborghini Aventador.
Interior and technology
Accents of fine leather, suede, carbon fiber, and metal cover almost everything inside its racy cabin centered on the driver. The interior is spacious for two adults, but do not expect much infotainment or connectivity. There is no central radio display; Most things are controlled by a digital readout in the instrument cluster via buttons and controls on the steering wheel, including the 488 GTB's different driving modes and the bright red ignition switch.
