Exterior

Sculpted design and refined engineering of the 488 GTB is the result of in-house treatment given to the majestic car. Without altering the much of design aspects, the new 488 GTB holds a class leading body architecture that eventually cuts the weight and enhance the performance of the vehicle. Chiseled bonnet with V-shaped lovering on the surface revels the performance package it is bestowed with. Cutting edge innovation implemented to the body allows the car to swift with minimal air drag. Signature brutal look of the car comes from the low floor design that reduces the drag coefficient. Sleek design of the head lamps allows the mean machine to pave its away even through the deepest darkened areas. Composite bumpers have been redesigned and provided with two deep channel air outlets for consistent cooling. Kamm tail structure of the 488 GTB offers the drive a hyper car trait.

Exterior Measurements

Besides matching the brutal appearance, the long wheelbase of 2650 mm enhance the stability of the vehicle while maneuvering critical turns. Precise measurement of 4568 mm X 1952 mm X 1213 mm (L X W X H) given to the mighty 488 GTB throws a sense of athleticism over the flawless silhouette of the car.

Interior

Vigorous look of the car is well complemented by a racing-inspired cockpit. Lightweight materials with garnishing of Alcantara and carbon fibre dominates the performance trait of the car. Hand-stitched upholstery, aluminum tread plates and fluidic design of the door panels throws an aura of sportiness all in the cabin. Overlapping of the carbon materials over the dash surface makes you realize the dedication of weight reduction and craftsmanship.

This roaring mean machine incorporates a naturally aspiring technology that allows it to boosts out a maximum power of 492 kW at 8000 rpm. Delivering such a a high power increases the compression ratio of the engine, owing to which the rear wheel drive arrangement of the car is availed with an exhilarating torque of 760 Nm at 3000 rpm. This energetic powerhouse with Hi-tech engineering comes mated with a 7-speed F1 dual clutch transmission that offers easy and brisk shifting of gears.

Stereo and Accessories
