    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    On FerrariChat, they say it's a one-off Ferrari 488 special project car.


    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    Is Ferrari benchmarking against the Evora?


    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    looks like the NSX.....too futuristic for me

    The TdF is a much more interesting car, sadly you can't buy one at a decent price.

    Can't you talk to Nick? He may be able to get one and maybe he is willing to pass it on to you for a small fee...or a beer or whatever... Smiley Smiley Smiley

    Hmm, do you all think this one-off looks so bad? Okay, it has some busy lines, but I rather like it. Smiley

    And talking about busy lines and clean design, I think the 488 has a clean design, much cleaner than its predecessor or its Ferrari stablemates. Smiley

    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    This SP are so fucking ugly (except Jim Glickenhaus' one and p540), way uglier than the current Ferrari line up since Pininfarina's departure. So much missed the clear and beauty lines and the sense of proportion the italian design company used to deliver.

    Saw both 458 spider and 488 spider next to each other and I gotta say the 458 looked very dated.

    FYI, all the so called ugly special editions were done by PF. 

     


    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    Of course SP cars are going to be ugly. They are designed by random people with no real experience in design and only supposed to appeal to a single person.

    Not entirely true. The design is done in-house in conjunction with the client, and there are limits to what the client can demand. its an iterative process between the Ferrari design team and the client. The final say is with Ferrari. I thought the TRS looked rather good myself.


    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    The 458 Speciale is the most beautiful 458 variant.

    It looks muscular, not feminine, fits the image. The regular 458 simply looked too soft.

    The 488 on the other hand looks just awkward with that front bumper.

    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    Looks nice from the side. Front end looks a little high though.

    from this angle it just seems this costumer could've saved him(her)self a few million and bought an Evora. 


    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    rather appalling. but maybe ferrari is just pulling our leg with this and they are just camouflaging the 488GTO under this horrendous structure???!!!:::)))

    I knew that it is going to be turbo charged but this is why I wouldn't be interested. I was seriously considering the 458 Speciale but the 488? Nope.

    A friend bought a used F12 (some sort of metallic grey, looks beautiful, maybe a bit too elegant though) and this thing sounds amazing, the engine is a treat. I would grab a F12, 458 or even a FF as long as I can if I were into getting a Ferrari.
