Since the 488 GTB got released with a turbocharged engine, tuner across the world started rubbing hands, because everybody knows the tuning results are more impressive than their N/A counterparts. VOS took matter in hands and it's one of the very first to tinkle with the updated prancing horse.
“Each vehicle appears with its own character. Knowing the character in detail is the basic prerequisite. In order to compose an inventive or extending interpretation of the existing material, the true art is to strike the right “note” if implanting the slightest adjustment into the individual automobile DNA. I like to compare our work with the tuning of a Stradivari. If handling it incorrectly or too insensitive, the soul of such an extraordinary masterpiece can be destroyed in an instant.”, says Michael Keller, managing director.
With all being said, VOS gets to work and with no restraints, pushes the 488's engine to 888HP and 1233Nm of torque. Too much? Worry not, as the tuner also ofers more tame power outputs, 740HP ( 1098Nm ) and 819 HP ( 1166Nm ), plenty of options, no? Sadly we don't have any other performance figures.
On the outside, things are relatively simple, VOS doesn't give away the beastly engine, but still, it enhances the overall design with carbon parts like front sill, side skirts, modular diffuser and a reworked performance exhaust system. A set of 21"LOMA wheels finished in matte black compliment the car.
