It’s early and the Northern California roads are mercifully empty. You are heading south down California State Route 17 towards San Jose with your best friend and the love of your life next to you in the Italian leather-covered passenger seat. Finally out of town, and away from meandering Toyota Prius traffic, you reach for the carbon fiber paddle and drop the dual-clutch 7-speed F1 gearbox two gears. The twin-scroll turbochargers breathe life into the 3.9L V8 and the once docile supercar reminds you that six hundred and sixty one horsepower are at your command. Sixty miles per hour comes in only 2.7 seconds on the way to a top speed of 205 mph. The Ferrari 488 GTB roars through the Bear Creek area and a hand squeezes your leg tightly; but it’s out of excitement vice fear and you keep heading south.
Carbon-ceramic brakes, improved over those found in the 458, and derived from technology used in the LaFerrari, clamp down as you approach a tight corner. You find that the suspension is magical, and what once allowed you to float over uneven surfaces in San Francisco is now gripping the road on the way to your overnight stay in Monterey like few cars you have ever driven. Your matched luggage even fit in the trunk.
Painted a gorgeous shade of Bianco Avus, the 488 GTB was penned by Italian architect and designer Flavio Manzoni, who led the design for other amazing supercars like the Ferrari FF, F12 Berlinetta, FXXK, and LaFerrari. Everything about the 488 is somehow both form and function. From the air intakes along the side of the car, an homage to the legendary Ferrari 308 GTB, to the top intake which provides air directly into the turbocharger, the 488 GTB is an amazing performance machine like few other.
