Another example of the Ferrari 488 GTB is ending up in our news as it has been spotted in Dusseldorf recently.
The Ferrari 488 GTB is still a rare supercar on the streets despite being officially unveiled back in March, during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, so when we caught one on camera in Dusseldorf it definitely felt like Christmas came earlier this year. The model in question was wearing German license plates and it had a silver finished body with a black roof. The supercar was quietly sitting around in a parking lot and because of the rainy weather, it hasn’t attracted any curious eyes.
Ferrari has introduced the 488 GTB as a successor of the popular 458 Italia. The model is nothing more than a facelifted version of its predecessor and it has been shown, at first, in a two-door coupe body style, but a two-door roadster, the 488 Spider, has been recently unveiled too. The supercar has upgraded aerodynamics, a new design for the LED taillights, larger air intakes, a new diffuser, a new wider front spoiler and so on. The 4.5 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine has been removed and a 3.9 liter twin turbo V8 has been added in its place. This is rated at 670 HP (493 kW) and 760 Nm (560 lb-ft) of torque, sent to the rear-wheel drive through a 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration is made in 3 seconds and top speed stands at 330 km/h (205 mph).
