History Of The Ferrari 488 GTB
GTB stands for Gran Turismo Berlinetta and the Ferrari 488 GTB is the latest in the long line of the Italian automaker’s illustrious line of mid-engined supercars. The 488 GTB made its debut in 2015 and was designed at the Ferrari Styling Centre under the direction of Flavio Manzoni. The Ferrari 488 GTB takes design cues from the company’s Formula 1 race cars as well as one of their classic vehicles, the 308 GTB. The Formula 1 design details come from the double front spoilers while the scalloped side air intakes are reminiscent of the 308 GTB.
The 488 GTB is also Ferrari’s first turbo assisted car since the F40, a move that was controversial to many because most auto enthusiasts—and Ferrari enthusiasts especially—tend to dislike the lag and the noise created by turbos. The decision to use turbo assist was not an easy one, but it was a necessary one, since it was the most efficient way to keep up with the supercar competition while staying environmentally responsible. The end result is that CO2 emissions are down 15% from the Ferrari 458, and that it has a surprisingly good mileage, for a supercar, of 25 MPG.
Tech Specs of the Ferrari 488 GTB
The Ferrari 488 GTB has a twin turbo V8 engine that produces a thunderous 661 horsepower, it has a top speed of a blistering 205 MPH, and can get you from 0 to 60 MPH in a neck-snapping 3 seconds. Despite those intimidating numbers, it is actually surprisingly easy to harness that power since the 488 GTB is one of Ferrari’s more driver friendly vehicles.
For a very long time, the mettle of a supercar was tested by how much it demanded of the driver; a host of good luck charms and a blessing from the Pope himself were the minimum requirements to try and tame one of those metal beasts. Now, we live in a more user-friendly, on-demand world and the 488 GTB has kept up with the times. You no longer need to be a professional race car driver—or a reckless daredevil—to take the Ferrari 488 GTB for a drive. This car has advanced electronic handling technology that makes any driver feel like an expert; features like advanced aerodynamics that generate enough downforce to make the car feel like it’s velcroed to the road, and Side Slip Angle Control that enables spirited—but controlled—drifting.
Gorgeous on the Outside, Gorgeous on the Inside
The spartan, borderline masochistic interiors of older Ferraris has long been a thing of the past, and the 488 GTB definitively proves that by having one of the best Ferrari interiors yet. The fusion of modern elegance and classic Italian driver-focused design is what you should expect when you slip into the car’s interior. You should also expect analog, driver-oriented switchgear and modern digital displays on the dashboard.
The racing derived bucket seats comfortably cradle you even while they hold you securely in place, whether you’re cruising down a boulevard or careening around a racetrack, the seats will hold you firm. Passengers will be just as comfortable as the driver, though they won’t be having as much fun.
