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 iconic Grigio Silverstone with beautiful Giallo callipers, which pair beautifully with the all important Scuderia Shields. The exterior is presented in exemplary cosmetic order thanks to the application of full PPF to the bodywork. On the interior full electric Daytona style seats are covered in Nero leather, with subtle contrasting Grigio stitching. The car has also benefited from the addition of an aftermarket vinyl stripe, which works fantastically well with the paintwork. This can be removed upon purchase if required.
