2020 Corvette vs. Ferrari 488

Fans and critics of the 2020 Corvette have been drawing comparisons to Ferrari models, but Chicago drivers know there is no comparison to the Prancing Horse. Although you’ll find a few similar specs — weight and dimensions, mostly — the majority of people pitting the 2020 Corvette vs. Ferrari 488 are doing so because the latest Corvette sports a mid-mounted naturally aspirated V8. But that’s like comparing the upcoming Purosangue to a Honda CR-V because they are both SUVs.

To illustrate our point, read on and see how the Corvette’s specs compare.

Performance Specs

Some drivers might think a V8 is a V8, but hopefully anyone weighing the 2020 Corvette vs. Ferrari 488 knows better. Here’s what you’ll find under the hood:

  • Corvette C8: Capable of 495 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque (only available with Z51 performance package), the Corvette C8 reaches 60 mph in around 3 seconds. The C8 can do a quarter-mile in 11.1 seconds at 123.2 mph.
  • Ferrari 488: The 488 Pista has a 710-hp V8 with 568 lb-ft of torque, hitting 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds. The 488 Pista clears a quarter-mile run in 10.1 seconds at 144.1 mph.

While you can debate the benefits of naturally aspirated vs turbocharged, at the end of the day, the Ferrari 488 simply delivers more power and faster times.
