The 488 GTB name marks a return to the classic Ferrari model designation with the 488 in its moniker indicating the engine's unitary displacement, while the GTB stands for Gran Turismo Berlinetta. The 488 is a very important car for Ferrari. This is because it symbols a change in philosophy for the company's mid-engine supercar. Gone is the naturally aspirated 4.5 litre V8 found in the sublime 458 Italia and Speciale and in its place is a downsized, direct-injection 3.9 litre Twin-Turbocharged flat plane-crank V8. It's more efficient but also massively more powerful. With 661 bhp and 560 lb ft of torque, the 488 has outrageous performance and such impressive drivability that it has already won the overall International Engine of the Year Award at the 2016 Engine Expo along with victories in the Performance Engine, New Engine and 3 Litre to 4 Litre displacement categories. Make no mistake, the 488 is a staggering piece of automotive engineering.
This particular example is finished in the special order Rosso Corsa Metallic, a modern interpretation of the classic Ferrari red fit of this modern masterpiece. The addition of huge amounts of exterior carbon contrast wonderfully against the metallic paintwork. The interior like the exterior is covered in vast amounts of carbon fibre which came at huge cost for the 1st owner. The beautiful Nero leather, is finished with contrasting Rosso stitching.
