The massive demand for the brand new Ferrari 488 GTB has stretched the waiting list for the supercar up to four years in Australia.
The announcement hasn’t been made official at this point, but according to the local media, the model in question has received more than 100 orders in just one week after being introduced locally and since then, the number has increased to more than 430. This has generated a four-year waiting list, despite not being cheap at all, as it has been priced from 469,888 AUD, before on-road costs. However, the price is making it 55,529 AUD cheaper than the vehicle it’s replacing, the 458 Italia.
As for the even newer 488 GTB, this will be arriving in the Pacific country six months after its solid roof brother, but don’t act too surprised if this will turn out to be a best-seller too. The Ferrari 488 GTB has received a new design with enhanced aerodynamics and this is a massive facelifted version of the older 458 Italia. The supercar is bringing larger air intakes, a new weirder front spoiler, LED taillights, a new diffuser and so on. The 4.5 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine has been dropped from the lineup in favor of a new 3.9 liter twin turbo V8, rated at 670 HP (493 kW) and 760 Nm (560 lb-ft) of torque, connected to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration takes 3 seconds and top speed stands at 330 km/h (205 mph).
