A Ferrari 458 And 488 GTB Rev Battle Is Worth Losing Your Eardrums Over

Exhaust

Natural aspiration should win, but there's no telling with Ferrari.

Fan girls and fan boys would have no qualms about waiting in line to hear a sing-off between Beyonce and Mariah Carey, but as gearheads, we have to wait for lucky YouTube stars to record screaming engines. Luckily the wait wasn’t too long for a rev-off between the Ferrari 458 and its replacement, the 488 GTB. This is a controversial battle since the 488 is one of the first Ferraris to feature sound-deadening turbochargers, but the engineers over at the Prancing Horse knew what they were doing.

Ferrari even left in turbo noise in Pagani Huayra fashion. Judge for yourself if the 488 GTB has lost its pizzazz to the turbos or if it holds its own against natural aspiration.
