The 2016 Ferrari 488 GTB will make its official debut at Geneva in March and provides track-level performance that can be enjoyed to the full even by non-professional drivers in everyday use, according to the Italian brand.

Ferrari will unveil a turbocharged 488 GTB at Geneva, forty years from unveiling its first ever mid-red-engined V8 model, the 308 GTB. It's the successor of the 458 Italia.

The 2016 Ferrari 488 GTB provides track-level performance that can be enjoyed to the full even by non-professional drivers in everyday use, according to the Italian brand.

Exterior Design Harks to Original 308 GTB

Designed by the Ferrari Styling center, the 2016 Ferrari 488 GTB features very sculptural flanks which are the key to its character. Its large signature air intake scallop is a nod to the original 308 GTB and is divided into two sections by a splitter. The wide front spoiler features a double profile to improve the thermal efficiency of the radiators positioned at the sides. At the center two pylons are combined with a deflector which channels air towards the flat underbody.

The broad, low tail is also dominated by aerodynamic solutions, including an innovative blown spoiler which generates downforce without increasing drag. This works in conjunction with an aggressive ramp angle for the diffuser which features active flaps. The greater height required for the diffuser was achieved by repositioning the exhaust tailpipes. The circular LED tail lights have also been redesigned.

488 GTB's Cockpit Tailored Around the Driver

The cockpit of the 2016 Ferrari 488 GTB is tailored around the driver. Usability was the key word in the design, leading to an extremely sporty ambience that in no way compromises on comfort. There are plenty of classic Ferrari styling elements too, such as the clear separation between the dashboard and tunnel, the multifunctional steering wheel, the control switch bridge and wraparound seats. The graphics and interface of the infotainment screen have also been completely redesigned while the design of the 2016 Ferrari 488 GTB's new key takes its inspiration from the car's cylinder banks and allows keyless starts.
