Ferrari unveils the mid-rear-engined 488 GTB

The new berlinetta arrives forty years after the 308 GTB, Ferrari’s first ever mid-rear-engined V8 model. The 488 GTB will offer track-level performance – achieved through the recent experience in F1, the XX programme and the WEC – combined with everyday use capabilities.

Power comes from a new 3902 cc V8 turbo that delivers 670 cv at 8,000 rpm along with 760 Nm of maximum torque in seventh gear. These figures allow the Ferrari 488 GTB to accelerate from 0-200 km/h in just 8.3 seconds and and a lap time on the Fiorano track of just 1’23”.
