Ferrari 488 GTB
For the last 40 years, Ferrari has provided purists with a V8-powered sports car. Today the company revealed the latest model in that 8-cylinder lineup — the 488 GTB. But this one is a little different —Ferrari adds a turbocharger to its V8 for the first time.

The 488 GTB’s engine displacement is small at 3.9 liters, but it puts out an amazing 660 horsepower and 560 lb-ft of torque at 3000 rpm.

The newest Ferrari will attain 60 mph in less than three seconds and 125 mph in just over eight seconds, on its way to a top speed around 205 mph.

The new 488 GTB can lap Ferrari’s Fiorano test track in just 1:23 — almost two seconds faster than the legendary Enzo, and just as fast as the F12 Berlinetta. It also beats its predecessor — the Ferrari 458 Italia — by about two seconds.

Aerodynamics also play a big part in performance figures. The GTB has 50 percent more downforce than the 458, as well as reduced drag, achieved via a double front spoiler, side intakes and active aerodynamics at the rear. The underbody also incorporates vortex generators to further increase downforce.

Inside is pure Ferrari with a multi-function steering wheel, driver-focused cockpit and wraparound seats. The infotainment screen has been redesigned and a new system enables keyless starts.

    Totally needs a GTO look anyways, cutosm rims, tons of air intakes, and black everything, I am interested on hearing this car though, because this car being new, and the GTO being new, they may have put in the same exhaust system, and the GTO’s sound makes me tingle.
