    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    Honestly I thought I was going to like it more in black, but red sems to be my favorite colour for this car. Strange since I liked the 458 in black so much more, but in the 488 it hides the new details too much.

    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    one of Clarkson's finest articles 


    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    It is also interesting to note that Clarkson doesn't mention how the 488 sounds vs. the AMG GT S. As far as I heard, the GT S beats the 488 in sound (from the outside).

    There is no try. Just do.


    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    I've heard the 488 sound from both inside and outside.... compared to my 650S, I must say: 

    The pitch of the sound in each gear sounded the same as 650S

    The sound inside of the cockpit is just as loud as 650S

    The sound outside of the car is louder than 650S in idle

    The sound outside of the car from a launch mode to approx.150k/hr observed from a stand point: a bit louder when reaching high RPM on each gear.

    Conclusion: 488GTB sounded a lot less vibrant than 458Speciale.... I don't know why most critics saying sounded good, or some people said "similar"  Even Chris Harris said it sounded good....  BECAUSE IT DOES NOT!!  it sounded the same as 650S which I never enjoyed from my car..... 

    Is it faster than my 650S? I wasn't the one driving it so I didn't know, one thing I can be sure is that its much much much faster than 458Speciale... That is for sure.   650S and 488GTB are two very similar character cars now. 488's soft rear damping around the corners are a bit neutral (while I wasn't the one driving it, I can feel in sharp fast corners the softening damping helped get that grip in).  McLaren's break steer I must say works better to tackle the corner, but a bit too much electronic and takes time to get use to, feels unnatural.  

    I must say Ferrari would still sell a great numbers of 488 even though the turbo had changed its character of the car. I must say Ferrari has to since this sector market is all about figures, performances.  As long as they keep their F12 (V12NA) its all good!!!

    The car looks as it would need some color.... maybe a side shot showing that black roof would do justice?

    Looks great in white!  Too bad that front camera is so noticeable.  Still, beautiful...

    Ha!  I have it on my Cali T and couldn't live without it... couldn't imagine on the 458/488 being even lower.

    Oh c'mon, we can argue about the REAR camera, but a carmera for the front??? Smiley

    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    Front camera is useful for FF/F12, the from hood is so long it's easy to miss where the parking curb is and ding the front lip. 

    But then again in a 458 it's still useful

    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    Just one very, very big problem. Front camera is in EU totally useless. It is covered with front licence plate...

    Ferrari apparently design their cars for USA only since even in Italy front licence plate is mandatory by the law.


    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    Yikes, that sucks.

    Here is the video of 488 with front licence plate...

    Easy fix. Cut a round hole in the license plate... smiley

    I'm with @Rossi on this one - really don't see the need for it and especially if it not disguised  - though its nowhere near as visible on the F12 as with the 488.

    Front parking sensor is all what you need for that.
