Leaked photos: Ferrari 488 GTO is lighter but more powerful than GTB model

There are so many stories circulating about whether Ferrari will be building an SUV or a fully electric model that people seem to be forgetting about Ferrari’s soon to be rockstar - the hardcore 488 GTB that will bring back the “GTO” moniker, which will also likely be the most desirable car to carry the prancing horse logo. In a leaked document by California Air Resources Board, there was a “488 Special Series Coupe” that was listed, so we definitely know that it is on its way.

We are expecting the 488 Special Series Coupe to make its debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show in March. In a recent closed door dealer meeting where the 488 was the main topic, someone seemed to have sneakily took photos of the slideshow that contained juicy information about the said model, which he then shares with a website with content that is mostly focused on Ferrari.

So, what can we expect from the 488 GTO? Here are some things we know. It will likely be equipped with Ferrari’s most powerful V8 engine ever made, giving out the highest power increase compared to a donor car for a V8 special series.

This is shown on one of the company’s latest works, a performance-enhanced version of the already powerful Ferrari 488 Spider.

Its beautifully and elegantly design exterior faithfully reveals how crazy is the Ferrari 488 Spider in terms of power. It is quite important to mention that the 488 Spider is powered by a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that could deliver 670 PS (661 hp) of max output at 8,000 rpm and 760 Nm (561 lb.-ft.) of peak torque available at 6,750 rpm. With this amount of power at its disposal, the Ferrari 488 Spider could accelerate from standstill to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in just 3.0 seconds and to 200 km/h (0 to 124 mph) in around 8.7 seconds. As far as top speed is concerned, the Ferrari 488 Spider could go as fast 325 km/h (203 mph).

The 488 Challenge now boasts a new level of performance as a result of its newly enhanced chassis, aerodynamics and engine.
