The Ferrari 488 GTB provides tracklevel performance that can be enjoyed to the full even by non-professional drivers in everyday use. Its response times, nimbleness and on-the-limit driving guarantee a unique sense of exhilaration and unparalleled driving pleasure. The new berlinetta brilliantly encapsulates Ferrari’s experience in both F1 and the World Endurance Championship, where the 458 GT holds the World Championship title and has won its category in the last two editions of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

These figures allow the Ferrari 488 GTB to accelerate from 0-62 mph in an astonishing 3.0 seconds and lap the Fiorano track in just 1’23”.
