Ferrari 488 GTB
Chosen by Mike Meredith
Even though it debuted a year ago at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show and sits next to the new GTC4Lusso, the Ferrari 488 GTB is still one of my favorites on this year’s show floor. A direct descendant from the first mid-engine, V8-powered Ferrari 308 GTB that debuted more than 40 years ago, the 488 GTB executes on that simple formula to the extreme. Powered by a turbocharged 3.9-liter V8 that puts out 660 horsepower and 560 lb-ft of torque at just 3000 rpm, the 488 GTB will accelerate from zero to 60 mph in less than three seconds and reach 125 mph in just over 8 seconds on its way to a top track speed of 205 mph. The design is aggressive but extremely clean and still stands out in a show packed with supercars.
