Ferrari 488 GTB — Geneva
For the last 40 years, Ferrari has offered a V8-powered sports car. At this year’s Geneva Motor Show, the Italian car company revealed the latest model in that 8-cylinder tradition — the Ferrari 488 GTB. However, this one is a little different: For the first time ever, Ferrari adds a turbocharger to its V8. The engine is small in size — just 3.9 liters — but it puts out an amazing 660 horsepower and 560 lb-ft of torque at just 3000 rpm. As expected, 488 GTB performance will be impressive. Sixty mph in less than 3 seconds, 125 mph in just over 8 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 2 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 2 seconds as well.
