2016 Ferrari 488 GTB

The Ferrari 488 is a mid-engined sports car produced by the Italian sports car manufacturer Ferrari, introduced in 2015 to replace the previous 458.

It is powered by a 3.9-litre twin-turbocharged V8 of 3,902 cc (238 cu in) all-aluminium dry sump unit of the Ferrari F154 engine family.
Turbocharged with two parallel ball-bearing twin-scroll turbochargers supplied by IHI and two air-to-air intercoolers, the compressor wheels are made of low-density TiAl alloy often used in jet engines to reduce inertia and resist high temperatures within the turbocharger. The engine produces 661 hp at 8,000 rpm and 561 lb·ft of torque at 3,000 rpm. This results in a specific power output of 169.4 hp per litre and specific torque output of 144 lb·ft per litre, both records for a Ferrari.
The transmission for the 488 is an automated manual dual-clutch 7-speed F1 gearbox manufactured for Ferrari by GETRAG, based on the gearbox used in the 458.
Carbon-ceramic brakes supply stopping power, constructed with materials that reduce the time needed to achieve optimum operating temperature. Disc sizes are 398 mm at the front, and 360 mm at the rear. A new 5-spoke 20 inch alloy wheel are front and rear.
