The Ferrari 488 GTB heralds the arrival of a new generation of 8-cylinder supercars that are fitted with turbochargers. Following on from the success of the 458, the 488 has been introduced and this new model benefits from numerous changes and improvements. The engine is mounted lower down and the addition of a turbocharger makes the engine leaner and more efficient, but also dramatically increases the performance. The new engine is smaller than its predecessor at 3.9 litres, but when the twin turbos spool up and kick into life, an impressive 661bhp is produced - making this more powerful than the legendary Ferrari Enzo. The car can reach a top speed of 205mph a 0-60mph time of 3 seconds means that it will keep up with almost anything on the road. The 488 also has a new generation of the Slide Slip Control, which will carefully firm up or soften the dampers. The brakes are from the LaFerrari and there is a dual-clutch 7-speed transmission regarded as one of the finest gearboxes on any car to date.
The 488 Spider was launched just after the coupe and offers a complete topless experience in just 14 seconds. Additional strengthening has been added to the chassis to counter any strength lost by the folding metal roof, the Spider weighs just 50kg more than a GTB.
