Here comes Ferrari’s new entry into the supercar race. The 2016 Ferrari 488 GTB.
They have replaced the 458’s V8 motor with a turbocharged 3.9 liter that will output 661 hp and 560 ft/lbq. That is a significant increase over the outgoing V8 motor. They claim a 0-62 mpg in 3 secs and hit 124 mph in 8.3 secs with a final velocity of 205 mph.
The improved aerodynamics will produce additional 50 percent downforce compared to the 458.
It is an exciting time for sports car enthusiasts. This prancing horse is a welcome introduction to the segment. Especially with the likes of the new Lamborghini Huracan and the new Ford GT.
