It has the power, but is it as emotional when it laps the track?
As technology gets better, the downsides to turbocharging start to vanish. Turbo lag has been almost eliminated in many newer cars, and despite having turbines chop up the rich mechanical noise that screaming engines make, some cars have even made the turbo noise central to the driving experience. But what about Ferrari? The brand’s signature is its engines with soaring redlines and a high-pitched rasp. It seems like a sin to quiet this music, but Ferrari had to do it.
So what does a turbocharged Ferrari sound like lapping a track? Listen here and compare notes to see if this Ferrari can still make onlookers swoon like the 458 Italia did.
