Is This 1,000 HP Plus 488 GTB By xXx-Performance A LaFerrari Killer?

One of the first tuned 488s is a beast.

Tuners are still taking their time with figuring out the best way to attack the Ferrari 488 GTB. xXx-Performance is one of the first tuning companies to get to work on the 458 successor and the company has created a monstrous supercar that may be capable of dethroning the incredible Ferrari LaFerrari. It's no surprise that the supercar was on display at the Essen Motor Show, which is similar to America’s tuning paradise—SEMA. xXx-Performance has given the supercar a new look and more than 1,000 hp.

The largest changes have taken place under the 488’s hood asthe supercar gets a 3-stage upgrade for the 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8. Stage1 increases power to 740 hp and 612 lb-ft of torque, while Stage 2 is a littlemore potent at 838 hp and 686 lb-ft of torque. The real performance upgradeis the Stage 3 kit that increases output to an unbelievable 986 hp and 922lb-ft of torque. For those keeping track, that’s much more powerful than the LaFerrari. To give the 488 a more aggressive look, the tuning company fitted the supercarwith a matte red wrap and matte black finish on the side mirrors, frontsplitter, roof and side skirt flics. Gold wheels and xXx-Performance stickers roundout the modifications.
