Ferrari 488 GTB Turbocharges The Crowds On Geneva Show Floor


So much more than just a refreshed 458 Italia.

Amongst the multitude of new reveals at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the recently unveiled Ferrari 488 GTB is understandably getting the most attention as you would expect of any new Prancing Horse. While only subtly different from the 458 Italia in design, add together all the individual body modifications – the blown rear spoiler, the double front spoiler, side air vents, new lights and wheels – and under the show lights the overall finish makes a big impact.

Some will call it nothing more than a facelifted 458, Ferrari never will, and looking at it in person, neither will we. Aggressively poised, it looks ready to attack the road from every angle. The powerplant is a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 rated at 660 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque, which is enough to take the 488 GTB to 62 mph in 3.0 seconds and to a top speed of 208 mph. The 458 Italia is one of the most beautiful, most accomplished supercars ever made. But the 488 GTB has the potential to be even better.
