The 2018 Ferrari 488 GTO is expected to become the most hardcore V8 supercar ever made by Maranello when it goes on sale next year.
As a track-focused version of the 488 GTB, the 2018 Ferrari 488 GTO will be a substitution for the discontinued 458 Speciale, a vehicle generally regarded as the best track-focused Ferrari to date.
The 488 GTO is going to be built around the proven platform of the 488. It will come with a lightened structure, extra power as well as more focused chassis settings to provide scintillating performance to go on a par with the upcoming Porsche 911 GT2.
The 2018 Ferrari 488 GTO’s twin-turbocharged 3.9-litre V8 motor will be boosted with enhanced pressure as well as internal modifications to generate an anticipated 700bhp, with torque also edging up substantially on the regular vehicle’s 561lb ft.
The car maker is expected to exclude non-essential parts from the interior and also sound deadening from its engine bay. Other improvements include fitting lightweight parts. For instance, these are lighter ceramic brakes, thinner glass for the windscreen and side windows and also forged wheels.
