The 2019 Ferrari 488 is a special high-performance variant of the Ferrari 488 GTB. Presented at the Geneva Motor Show 2018, the 2019 Ferrari 488 2019 has its origins in the successful racing variants 488 GT3 / GTE and 488 Challenge. The car has received many mechanical and exterior upgrades to outperform the standard 488 GTB. Lamborghini Huracán and McLaren 650S are also expensive to buy and operate.
The list of standard equipment includes satellite navigation, cruise control, rear parking sensors, alarm, and tracking. However, even seemingly minor extras will add thousands of pounds to the bill. Among the less expensive but almost equally fast options are the Audi R8 and the Porsche 911 Turbo, although they do not have the same prestige.
2019 Ferrari 488 Interior
Inside, 2019 Ferrari 488, the interior, unlike the way the 488 is treated, is not so incomparable. The steering wheel with functions, like all current Ferrari, is worth considering, and once you get used to everything you do, it’s a pleasure to use it. Likewise, the huge toothed blades behind him. The seats, the pedals and the view from the car are also irreproachable. However, many other items scattered inside, such as the heating controls and the right and left side screens, are too complicated and have too many different buttons and buttons. Simplification is necessary; As a touch of elegance: the fact that the current McLaren 650S is better adjusted and more aesthetic should not be a lost event for future buyers of Ferrari.
The 488 infotainment system is packed with features like satellite navigation, Bluetooth and even Apple CarPlay with smartphone SLR. However, the usability is not as impressive, because of its clumsy interface and its relatively small screen behind the wheel.
2019 Ferrari 488 Design
The body of the 488 was designed to increase aerodynamic downforce by 50% compared to the 458 while reducing aerodynamic drag. A new double front splitter has two functions: to increase the cooling of the radiator by forcing the air inside them and also by channeling the air onto the underbody vortex generators to create the ground effect without adding unwanted resistance. A newly designed blown rear spoiler integrated into the rear deck and rear bumper increases downforce without requiring a raised wing. Underbody vortex generators work to reduce air pressure under the car thus increasing overall downforce. A larger rear diffuser works to increase the speed of the air exiting the underbody to further lower the air pressure, in combination with active aerodynamic variable fins that reduce drag and increase the aerodynamic load is controlled by a microprocessor.
The increase in the size of the diffuser compared to the previous 458 requires that the twin exhausts of the 488 be positioned higher up in the rear bumper for play. The scalloped side air intakes are a tribute to those found on the 308 GTB and are divided by a central partition. The air that enters the upper suction is partially directed into the suction of the turbocharger compressor, while the rest is directed through the rear of the machine and exits next to the rear lights, increasing the air pressure behind the machine to reduce the aerodynamic resistance. The airflow entering the lower intake is directed towards the intercoolers to cool the intake charge.
2019 Ferrari 488 Engine
The 488 GTB is the heart of the Ferrari engine: more expensive than the roof and soft belly Californian, and a little less expensive than the GT4C Lusso or F12 V12 engine. In general, the 488 is equipped with the same twin-turbocharged V8 engine as California, but with a slightly larger size and significantly higher power. His CV 661 means he is in the Premier League of supercars, with only players like McLaren 650S and Lamborghini Huracán as direct rivals. However, this is one of the best driving cars that money can buy. If money is not a problem, the 2019 Ferrari 488 GTB is a very tempting proposition.
