Ferrari 488 GTB
The Ferrari 488 GTB was unveiled today at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
On its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show, the Ferrari 488 GTB sets a
new benchmark for the sports car sector. Forty years on from the launch of
Ferrari’s iconic first-ever mid-rear-engined V8 berlinetta, the 308 GTB,
the Ferrari 488 GTB opens a new chapter in the history of cars with this
Credit for this achievement must go to the Ferrari 488 GTB’s
revolutionary proprietary solutions which deliver a car at the top of its
class in terms of power output (670 cv) with engine and response times of
just 0.8 and 0.06 seconds respectively. Sophisticated dynamic vehicle
controls make this performance completely controllable even on the limit by
drivers of all abilities, resulting in the unique driving pleasure that
only a Ferrari can deliver.
Ferrari drew extensively on its experience in both Formula One and
endurance racing, bringing to the road the technology that delivered
victory in two editions of the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the title in the WEC
(World Endurance Championship). Also pivotal was the XX programme in which
Ferrari’s technicians have developed a unique knowledge of the dynamic
behaviour of extreme cars driven by non-professional drivers.
The 488 in the car’s moniker indicates the engine’s unitary
displacement, while the GTB stands for Gran Turismo Berlinetta, a reference
to its deep roots in Ferrari history.
Extreme power was a requisite for the car and is delivered by the new 3902
cc turbo engine coupled to a seven-gear
F1 dual-clutch gearbox featuring Variable Boost Management which optimally distributes
torque (a maximum 760 Nm in seventh gear). The Ferrari 488 GTB guarantees
exuberant performance that is absolutely exploitable to the fullest
regardless of driving conditions and is accompanied by a deep, seductive
soundtrack, the signature of all Ferrari engines.
The Ferrari 488 GTB’s revolutionary aerodynamics incorporate patented
solutions, such as the blown rear spoiler, as well as innovative features
like the 458 GT-derived aerodynamic underbody with vortex generators. The
result is a new efficiency record for a Ferrari (E=1.67). Downforce
increases to 325 kg at 250 km/h, thanks in part to active aerodynamic
devices which reduce drag whilst simultaneously generating downforce when
The Ferrari 488 GTB’s dynamic vehicle controls have also been further
evolved. It sports a new version of the Side Slip Control System (SSC2)
which, aside from just integrating with the car’s F1-Trac and E-Diff, now
also controls the active dampers. This renders the Ferrari 488 GTB’s
dynamic behaviour during complex manoeuvres even flatter and more stable,
so that less expert drivers can enjoy its potential to the fullest,
resulting in an extremely thrilling driving experience.
Designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre, the Ferrari 488 GTB’s sculptural
forms are completely new. They accentuate the car’s sportiness yet retain
the classically clean, pure lines typical of Ferrari’s legendary styling.
The seamless interweaving of form and function is clear in every detail, in
fact. Certain design elements also draw on styling cues from the past, not
least the 308 GTB-inspired scalloped flanks.
The Ferrari 488 GTB makes its debut in a new Rosso Corsa Met livery with
black and red technical fabric cabin trim, and in a Grigio Ferro Met livery
with black and Beige Tradizione leather interior trim.
Blits Bezit - Ferrari 328 GTS
Deze week ontmoet je in AutoWeek Kees den Hertog, de bezitter van een heuse
Ferrari 328 GTS. Dit keer eens niet iemand met oud geld, of een belegger in
turbo's of een DJ. Kees is gewoon iemand
met een baan in het onderwijs...

Voilà ce que ça donne, quand on lave une Ferrari à l'eau trop

A parenthesis is really too good. Appearing of a thing of the world does
not have the figure to watch from the glamour body back.
