Ferrari 488 GTB is here

Ferrari has officially unveiled the all-new 488 GTB. As you can see the new Italian model is a replacement for the 458 Italia. The new Ferrari 488 GTB is featuring a more aggressive and sporty styling than its successor. 

We see bigger bumpers, a unique spoiler, active flaps and a special hood. Under the bonnet, the new 488 GTB has a V8 3.9 liter twin-turbo engine. 

The unit is delivering 670 horsepower at 7.000 rpm and 760 Nm peak of torque at 3.000 rpm. The engine resources are sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. As a result, the new Ferrari 488 GTB can run from stand still to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.0 seconds, while the run from 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) is done in 8.3 seconds, 1 second faster than the 458 Speciale. 

According to Ferrari, the new 488 GTB was able to lap the Fiorano track in just 1 minute and 23 seconds, 2 seconds faster than the regular 458 Italia. The new Maranello supercar will be officially showcased during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. According to rumors, a Spider version could be revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
