The turmoil around the arrival of the Ferrari 488 GTO is more and more uncontrollable. The network has in fact discovered the first shot of the new Maranello supercar. Several accounts Instagram ( woppum or the usual FerrariPhotoPage ) published a “stolen” image to a private Ferrari event. All this would leave us thinking that the time for debut is ripe. At this point, the Geneva Motor Show could be the chosen event.
The Ferrari 488 GTO, provided that this is actually the initials chosen at Maranello, is shown on its front side. The look of what is currently defined “ V8 Sport Special Series ” maintains expectations. Aggressive, muscular, almost wild. As promises to be this bolide with the Prancing Horse on the hood.
Power and aerodynamics
The engine will indeed be the most powerful V8 ever mounted on a Ferrari. The 3.9-liter biturbo will be brought over the threshold of the 700 horses . The low weight of about 100 kg compared to the GTB version will make the performance even more extreme. In the last few weeks some details have begun to emerge.
A few days ago, again FerrariPhotoPage, had come in possession of some slides showing some specifics of the 488 GTO. The engine is an evolution of that used on the track by the 488 Challenge but it is on the aerodynamic front that many efforts have been concentrated by the Ferrari engineers. Through the work done in the wind tunnel, the aerodynamic efficiency will be 20% better than that of the GTB.
