Meet the car for which money or even words aren’t enough… The Ferrari 488 GTB is being labelled as the most docile-handling mid-engined vehicle ever made. The luxury automobile giant has not only delivered unparalleled performance but this time also made extreme power controllable to less experienced drivers.
The 488 Gran Turismo Berlinetta is powered by a new 3.9-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine. Its capability of getting airborne really shouldn’t come as a surprise as it accelerates from a standing start to 200km/h in 8.3 seconds flat, messing with forces of gravity and your internal organs in all kinds of ways. It’s faster than Lamborghini’s newly-launched V12 Aventador Superveloce (with a response time of 8.6 seconds) and makes its supposed competitor, the V10 Huracan, look pedestrian over the same dash, at 9.9 seconds.

As far as the looks and ambiance are concerned, the 488 GTB doesn’t hold a candle to the 458 Italia, and the turbo engine makes it sound unlike a Ferrari. But its unbeatable performance, ridiculous road-holding; style; heritage and badge-snob value make it a clear winner in the eyes of car enthusiasts.
