Ferrari 488 GTB on Highway

The Ferrari 488 specs prove it was a new entry in the Ferrari legacy, and whether you choose the Ferrari 488 GTB (above), Spider, Pista, or Pista Spider, you’ll have the keys to one of the world’s finest automobiles. Discover the specs of each Ferrari 488 model below, then reach out to us if there’s a specific Ferrari you’re after.

Ferrari 488 GTB Specs

  • Engine: Twin-Turbo 3.9L V8

  • Torque: 561 lb-ft of torque @ 3,000 rpm
  • Top Speed: 205 mph
  • 0 – 60: 3.0 seconds

While it takes its name from the 308 GTB (for Gran Turismo Berlinetta), the 488 GTB represented a significant step forward from the 308 with the 3.9L twin-turbo that’s become the staple of the 488 models and taken home multiple awards — including earning International Engine of the Year more than once.

Ferrari 488 Spider Specs

  • Horsepower: 661 hp @ 8,000 rpm
  • Torque: 561 lb-ft of torque @ 3,000 rpm

An F1-inspired double spoiler and power hardtop transform the 488 GTB into an open-air performance machine. Feel the wind in your hair as you hear that engine roar, whether you’re on the track or the highway.
