488 GT

Ferrari’s commitment to the track is not confined to Formula 1, but also encompasses GT racing where there is still a very strong link to its road cars. Ferrari is involved in the latter competitions through client teams that choose the Prancing Horse cars to compete in the top championships.

Ferrari’s involvement in GT racing is currently encapsulated by the 488 GT of which there are GTE and GT3 versions to suit the differing technical regulations of the championships it competes in.

Developed with the support of Michelotto Automobili, the 488 GTE made its competitive debut in the 2016 24 Hours of Daytona. In its first year, it won the Constructors’ title in the World Endurance Championship, while the GT3 triumphed in the first six races of its career, including its maiden race, the 12 Hours of Sebring.

The 488 took home a slew of trophies in its first season on the tracks. The 488 GTE won the Constructors’ title in the WEC on its debut season, thanks to victories at Silverstone, Spa-Francorchamps and the Nürburgring. It also won the Petit Le Mans which is part of the IMSA SportsCar Championship. The 488 GT3 won the GTD class at the IMSA SCC in the United States, taking the top step in, amongst others, the 12 Hours of Sebring and the 6 Hours of Watkins Glen. It also won on its debut in the Asian Le Mans Series and dominated the Pro-Am Cup class in the Blancpain GT Championships. Last but not least, it triumphed in the Italian GT Championship.

The 488 GT is based on a road car that already incorporated track-friendly solutions as standard. Little was changed about it, including its engine, hailing the return to the track of the turbo more than 20 years after the launch of the glorious F40.


The 488 GT’s performance has been boosted across the board compared to the F458 Italia but it remains just as easy to drive.

The driver’s cockpit has been further improved thanks to more extensive instrumentation to assist professional and gentleman drivers in all kinds of race conditions.

Tyre wear has been further optimised too as has fuel consumption thanks to the car’s new generation turbo engine. The 488 also sports a transverse gearbox that refines weight distribution. In aero terms, it is almost 40% more efficient, producing a clear improvement in high speed cornering.
