After last month's online reveal, the Ferrari 488 GTB is currently being exhibited at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

 

It may look like a 458 facelift but lurking underneath the familiar design is a new beating heart, a twin-turbo V8 3.9-liter engine pushing out 670 HP (493 kW) and 760 Nm (560 lb-ft) of torque. It's enough muscle to allow the 488 GTB rocket to 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill in just three seconds while the 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) task is accomplished in 8.3 seconds before hitting a top speed 205 mph (330 km/h).

 

The new engine is coupled to a reworked dual-clutch seven-speed gearbox benefiting from variable torque management. Ferrari says they modified the exhaust system to provide a "full, clear and totally distinctive" sound while the refreshed interior cabin sports new satellite control clusters, revised infotainment system, angled air vents and new seats.

 

Getting back to the design, the 488 GTB comes with a big air intake scallop reminiscent of the 308 GTB but this time it's divided into two separate sections by a splitter. There's also a wider front spoiler, updated LED taillights, a new diffuser with active flaps as well as a different blown spoiler boosting downforce.

 

 

Tipping the scales at 1,370 kg (3,020 lbs), the Ferrari 488 GTB is set to go on sale in the months to come and will likely be joined by a Spider version in the second half of the year.
