Cavalino Design has sent us two renders depicting a potential Ferrari 488 GTB in the hotter Speciale guise.

Ferrari introduced the 458 Speciale back in August 2013 as a more powerful and lighter derivative of the 458 Italia. Output of the naturally aspirated V8 4.5-liter engine was bumped by 35 HP (26 kW) to 605 HP (445 kW) at 9,000 rpm while torque remained the same at 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) at 6,000 rpm wrapped around in a body weighing 90 kg less (at 1,290 kg).

Last week, the 1,370 kg 488 GTB made its online debut with a twin-turbo V8 3.9-liter engine unleashing 670 HP (493 kW) and 760 Nm (560 lb-ft) so a potential 488 GTB Speciale version would pack even more, possibly hitting the 700 HP (515 kW) mark. The added oomph would be matched by a more aggressive body envisioned in the attached renders with vented hood and front fenders, more aerodynamic side skirts together with a beefier rear end enhanced by additional vents, carbon fiber spoiler lip, prominent diffuser and four exhaust tips although the 458 Speciale has only two pipes.

Since the 488 GTB hasn't even made its public debut, it's safe to say it will take a couple of years until a more potent version worthy of the Speciale suffix will be out.

Special thanks go to Cavalino for sending us the renders!
