German aftermarket specialist VOS GmbH has decided some Italian flair is needed in the garage so they started work on the beautiful Ferrari 488 GTB, with the final composition delivering way more power.
With Ferrari succumbing to the world of turbocharging, tuners are going to be pretty happy to work on the models from Maranello as they have lots of “space” to work their magic. This is a pretty good example of the situation, with the Germans from Vos taking the biturbo 3.9-liter V8 engine of the 488 GTB from its usual level of 670 horsepower (493 kilowatts) and 560 pound-feet (760 Newton meters) to an outstanding level of 900 hp (662 kW) and 671 lb-ft (910 Nm). The added oomph comes from optimized engine management, a rework of the air induction system, the addition of a bespoke exhaust system which can optionally morph into a titanium exhaust or an Akrapovic setup.
The updated 488 GTB also sports a very subtle body kit to conceal it’s a 900 hp menace. Actually, if you leave the big rear wing at home an untrained eye could take this as a regular 488 GTB. But sporting an additional cavalcade of 230 hp will make a big difference. By the way, if you don’t want to go full throttle Vos (Vision of Speed) can also mildly upgrade the 488 GTB to intermediate levels: 750 hp / 810 Nm and 830 hp / 860 Nm. The example we see here also got a unique set of 21-inch LOMA wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires and has H&R sports springs. The tuner is also displaying the unit during the TuningWorld Bodensee in Germany.
