GT & Sport Cars

The Ferrari 488 GTB has taken top honors at Motor Trend’s Best Driver’s Car competition.

Motor Trend’s 2017 Best Driver’s Car program hosted a dozen cars from 10 automakers at several locations in California, with the 488 GTB coming out victorious. “The Ferrari 488 GTB is one of the purest distillations of driving enjoyment ever created,” says Motor Trend Editor-in-Chief Ed Loh. “The way the engine, transmission, and chassis systems all work together reflects Ferrari’s deep understanding of high-performance road cars and long history in racing at the highest level.”

In nominating the Ferrari 488 GTB as its Best Driver’s Car, Motor Trend celebrates those characteristics Ferraristi recognize and demand: excellence in terms of driving pleasure—usable performance, razor-sharp responses, and great handling. In other words, the quintessential sports car.

Ferrari has won the Best Driver’s Car award before, in 2011, with the 458 Italia.
