Disabilityinformer – 2016 Ferrari 488 GTB The latest successor to the 458 Italia gets an turbo upgrade! The 2016 Ferrari 488 GTB is a mid-engined supercar produced by Ferrari. First sight of this sweet machine was at its world premiere Geneva Motor Show March 2015. The 488 is well re-engineered replacement for the Ferrari 458 with similar design features..jobs
The 488 GTB is powered by a 3.9 liter twin turbo V8 an all aluminium dry sump unit from the Ferrari F154 engine family. The engine produces impressive 661 horsepower (493kW) at 8000 rpm and 760 N·m (561 lb·ft) of torque at 3000 rpm. Supplied with automatic dual-clutch 7 speed F1 gearbox which is directly based on the Italia 458. All this power comes up to some great results. A 0 to 60mph (0-100km/h) is accomplished in 3.0 seconds and 0 to 120mph (0 to 200km’h) in 8.3 seconds covering quarter mile in 10.45 seconds. This is definitely one impressive 10 second car which will give a top speed of 210mph (330km/h).
2016 Ferrari 488 GTB Design
Design is well though out, for instance it increases down-force by 50% over the 458 Italia and also reduces the aerodynamic drag. An increase in radiator cooling with a new front double splitter. The massive down-force is in part supplied with a newly designed blown spoiler integrated into the rear decklid. The central “Aero Pillar” deflects air under the flat body of the car while two vents in the bonnet provide an exit for air from the dual intakes of the front bumper, further reducing air pressure over the front of the car
With all these upgrades and innovations the new 2016 Ferrari 488 GTB gets you around on as many as 20 miles to the gallon which is not that bad considering all the power. This is more than 15% more fuel efficient than the Italia 458. There is no news yet on the price but of course with can assume that it will be similar to the 458 which is around $250,000+.
