The successor to the Ferrari 458 Italia is called 488 GTB and how could it be otherwise mounts a new V8 reducing its displacement from 4.5 to 3.9 liters but thanks to turbo increases its power to 670 hp.
The insurmountable environmental standards have claimed another victim and who complain really. The Ferrari 458 Italia will be remembered as the sport who rode one of the best naturally-aspirated V8 of all time as we had the pleasure of checking. Now it is the turn to his successor a Ferrari 488 GTB distinguished from it by mere aesthetic details but riding a more compact powerful and above all efficient turbo engine.
At first glance we appreciate the new sports Maranello details like a sharper front grille a molded style of a Formula 1 car bonnet and rear air diffuser receiving spoiler and a few pilots who like the headlights maintain a general style very similar to the 458 Italia.
The dimensions also reflect this similarity since the 488 GTB measures 4.57 meters long 1.95 wide and 1.21 high so that only its length is 4 inches greater. The weight however if it is considerably lighter passes from 1560-1370 kilos with a cast to 45.6 / 53.5 between both axles. Inside the reform is minimal and we must look at the instrumentation the key or seat covers to realize that this is a different model.
Public benefits acknowledge the arrival of this V8 Turbo as the 488 accelerates from 0-100 km / h in just 3 seconds and 0-200 km / h in 8.2 s. to record a top speed of 330 km / h. That is to say is accelerating as fast as the exclusive 458 Speciale and its tip is somewhat higher -5 km / h-. But surely it is best that spends considerably less 11.4 liters / 100 km with emissions of 260 g / km by 13.3 liters and 307 g / km of Italy.
So far about normal but what they have raised in Maranello to achieve dynamic accuracy of its atmospheric predecessor? For they have worked on developing a new electronic system called Slide Slip Control correcting the angle of sideslip on curves and associated with known controls F1-Trac and E-Diff electronic traction you -Controls and effect and autoblocante- to new active dampers.
The Ferrari 488 GTB owes its name to the 308 GTB 1975 one of the most popular Ferrari designed by Pininfarina also had a V8 and that at the time noted for its lightness.
