This is not just a facelift for the 458, this model welcomes the turbo technology at Ferrari, because at the heart of the 488, sits a twin-turbo V8 which develops 670HP and 760NM of torque. Needs 3s flat to reach to 100km and 8.3s for 200km.h.
After the number diet, we move to styling - the most intriguing feature has to be the large scoop behind the doors, which as we can see, it's been divided in two, not for design purposes, but for efficiency, as it channels the air in two distinctive ways.
Another distinctive feature is the wide opened front bumper and the huge hood scoop, which also help channeling the air and reducing the air-friction. Rear diffuser features active flaps and the LED tail lights have been slightly redesigned for a meaner look.
Inside, Italian attention to detail strikes again, with more hugging seats, a slightly revised cluster, angled air-vents and a new infotainment system.
Public debut is expected at Geneva in March, a Spider version is expected in September.
