Ferrari 488 GTO is an updated 458 Speciale image

Ferrari has a pretty good chance of introducing a replacement for the 458 Speciale too, which might be called the 488 GTO.

Over these past few days, we have seen some interesting renderings with the recently unveiled 488 GTB, most of them showing the model as a Spider, but now time has come to talk about the range topping version, the 488 GTO, which will replace the 458 Speciale. The model in question will be a spiritual successor of the current 458 Speciale and it will have some reminiscence of the F430 Scuderia and 360 Challenge, but considering the fact that the new Speciale has just been introduced, in the Aperta version at least, chances are we won’t see this except for probably in 2 or 3 years.

The images posted below are renderings of such a model and we have to admit that the final product look quite appealing, but it remains a dream at the moment. The current Ferrari 488 GTB has dropped the 4.5 liter V8 engine from the 458 Italia in favor of a 3.9 liter turbocharged unit, which is rated at 670 HP (493 kW) at 8,000 rpm and 760 Nm (560 lb-ft) of torque, available from 3,000 rpm. The supercar needs just 3 seconds in order to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill and it can go all the way up to 330 km/h (62 mph). Additional details on it will be announced in Geneva, next month, when it will make its public debut.
