    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    Rossi:


    Iain, the whole sentence on the slide was "Highest Utilisation of Carbon Fibre on a Range car from Ferrari".
    The last two words were written in an extremely small font, so that you could not read it from behind, where the pic was taken. Smiley

    Undisguised shot of new front. Interesting that they have totally removed the crass attempt to mimic an F1 car front wing seen on the 488 GTB. The revised front looks more like something Pininfarina would have styled. I can't help but think the new mini me carbon aero wing grafted onto the front looks like it was styled to resemble Hindenburgh's moustache Smiley

    Front reminds me of a Corvette in that picture. Maybe it's the lights.

    Leaked details suggest Ferrari 488 GTO could be faster than a LaFerrari

    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    The more I look and think about the 488 GTB, the more I like it. In the beginning, I really disliked this car.

    Now with an even faster version, the 488 could be really interesting. 

    I would never get a Ferrari, the dealerships here are not my thing, also very bad lease offers Smiley but so far, the GTB or GTO may be the first Ferrari I would want to own, after the 458 Speciale.

    That looks so sexy. I would even order it with that camo on top - amazing!

     


    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    I must admit that in that picture it is the first time I like the 488 . Otherwise I find it so unrefined .

    The 488 started to grow on me, slowly, which is pretty rare for a Ferrari (usually I like them...or not).

    I"m very hopeful about the back. Love the little 288GTO spoiler on the back edge.

    interesting. do you like the looks of the GT3RS? is it .... refined?:::))))


    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    I don’t expect an RS to be refined but I do expect it from a Carrera or a 488 base. The front with that pseudo F1 wing is butt ugly and so are the side intakes. All the straight lines and the angles do not go well at all with the rest of the body. It looks like a job done by a student. The 488 being a kind of face lift from the 458 it looks like they had to do something different for the sake of having a car that looks new. And each time I see it in real life I find it even worse the pics. No elegance . And I expect a Ferrari to have italien elegance. 

    The GTO looks like the front will have much smoother lines. Better. Not sure what they. And I witz the intakes

    It is not your first Ferrari, I assume? I understand from my F dealer in Germany that F has set various criteria who should get the car, among others 488 GTB ownership.

    it is not my first ferrari but those criteria are mainly bs. the dealer decides who gets the car. an important condition is to sell locally though, the rest is not what concerns ferrari.

    Numbers are said to be:

    725 hp
    0-100 kph: 2.8 sec
    0-200 kph: 7.8 sec

    But some say it's more like 740 or 750 hp (which seems too much for me, compared to the Speciale/458 ratio).
