[VIDEO] See a Ferrari 488 GTB reach 341 km/h on Autobahn image

The German Autobahn has had this Ferrari driver trying to achieve the top speed and he actually managed to do it.

After being revealed as a show car in numerous videos and photo galleries, the new Ferrari 488 GTB is starring yet another clip which is putting it to the test. The driver of this particular Italian supercar has managed to take it up to a top speed of 341 km/h (211 mph) on the German Autobahn and this is actually more than the Maranello based company says it can do, because the official figure is in excess of 330 km/h. Keep in mind that no GPS was used so the instrument cluster may not be that accurate. Even so, it is worth taking a look at this video.

The Ferrari 488 GTB is the newest supercar to be signed by the carmaker. The model is a replacement of the 458 Italia and it has been revealed just earlier this year. The exotic ride has received an updated exterior design, improving its aerodynamics, getting the LED taillights, the large air intakes, new wider front spoiler, a new diffuser and so on. Under its hood, the carmaker has dropped the 4.5 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine in favor of a new 3.9 liter twin turbo V8, producing 670 HP (493 kW) and 760 Nm (560 lb-ft) of torque, sent to the RWD through a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) this needs 3 seconds and the official top speed figure is 330 km/h (205 mph).

    Nice, eh? The autobahn fatality rate of 1.9 deaths per billion-travel-kilometers compared quite favorably with the 4.7 rate on urban streets and 6.6 rate on rural roads in 2013. Autobahns carried 31% of motorized road traffic while accounting for 13% of Germany’s traffic deaths.
