The Ferrari 488 was introduced in 2015 as a replacement to the Ferrari 458 Italia. In its place, the 488 was replaced in late 2019 by the Ferrari F8 Tributo. Forty years on from the unveiling of its first ever mid-rear-engined V8 model, the 308 GTB, the Prancing Horse opened a new chapter in its 8-cylinder history. The Ferrari 488 GTB provided track-level performance that can be enjoyed to the full even by non-professional drivers in everyday use. Its response times, nimbleness and on-the-limit driving guarantee a unique sense of exhilaration and unparalleled driving pleasure. The Ferrari 488 GTB’s new 3902 cc V8 turbo was at the top of its class for power output, torque and response times, making it the new benchmark for this kind of architecture. The engine unleashes 661 hp at 8,000 rpm and a response time to the accelerator of just 0.8 seconds at 2,000 rpm. These figures are sufficient to allow the Ferrari 488 GTB to accelerate from 0-200 km/h in an astonishing 8.3 seconds. The era of the twin-turbo V8 Ferrari was back in a big way.
