Awaiting revcrazy's rebuttal....this 488 will trump the Speciale in every conceivable category, let alone the 991 turbo S.

It's an awesome machine...I drove a California T this week which has a detuned version of that engine and it was very torquey and sounded great, too.

Glorious, thanks for posting the video of the FXX. It's sad that car sounds 10x better than an F1 car now.

Breaks my heart to see Imola, man do I miss that track on the F1 Calendar.

Ya, that's a given lol. Ferrari has been making huge jumps in performance from generation to generation ....360<430<458<488

They better make a light weight version of the 488. I can only imagine where Ferrari will take turbo technology, if this is their starting point, on a face lift model.

That thing seems to rev unbelievably fast...

Too fast of a car? Arguably we're reaching that point here.
