Drawing on all areas of Ferrari’s development, from F1 to the 24 Hour Le Mans, not only is the 488GTB a beautiful manifestation of decades of experience from the most dominant team in motorsport history, it is also the champion torchbearer for the future of Ferrari.

Experience 0-100 km/h in 3 seconds with this beautiful two-seater set to usher in a new wave of Ferrari models


This 3902 cc power unit is the Prancing Horse's most high performance engine ever with zero turbo lag and a unique, seductive soundtrack. It delivers 670 cv at 8,000 rpm with a specific power output of 172 cv/l, a new record for a road-going Ferrari, maximum torque of 760 Nm in seventh gear and a throttle response time of just 0.8 seconds at 2000 rpm in third gear. Consequently, the 488 GTB sprints from 0-100 km/h in 3 seconds flat and from 0-200 km/h in just 8.3 seconds.



Aerodynamic solutions derived from Maranello's experience on the track augment downforce without increasing drag, resulting in an efficiency figure of 1.67, a record for a road-homologated Ferrari. Downforce is 50 per cent higher than on the previous model despite drag being reduced.The front of the car is dominated by the central Aero Pillar and an F1-inspired double spoiler which boost the efficiency of both the radiator and downforce generation.


Vehicle Dynamics

To turn the 488 GTB's extreme power into unadulterated driving pleasure regardless of conditions, Ferrari drew on the vehicle dynamics experience it has built up in competition and through its laboratory cars on the various circuits worldwide. Subsystem and electronic control development focused principally on maximum responsiveness to the accelerator and total control with response times (0.06 seconds) comparable to those of a track car.
