This is the first image of the new Ferrari 488 “Sports Speciale”. His name has not yet been officially confirmed, and Ferrari refers to the car as “Sports Special Series “. It has been filtered to the Internet through Instagram and confirms the leaks brought to light by Ferrari Photo page a few days ago. This is a version of even more performance of the Ferrari 488 GTB, focused on the purists of driving, the Ferrari star who are regulars to an exclusive track day. Essentially it is to the Ferrari 488 GTB what the Ferrari 458 Speciale was to the Ferrari 458 Italia. What little we can see we like, and a lot.

In this article we do not have much more information to contribute to the article published just a few days ago, those rumors seem to be very well founded. This hardcore version of the Ferrari 488 GTB launches a completely redesigned front, extremely aggressive, which seems taken from the Ferrari 488 Challenge – in which many of its components are based, both technical and functional level.

A detail that we can appreciate better is its new tires built in carbon fiber, up to 40% lighter than some light alloy wheels. The unit shown is red with white stripes, which will possibly be chosen by the brand when it is presented at the next Geneva Motor Show, in just over a month. Little more we can extract from this image – unfortunately, we can not see the back of the car – beyond the presence of almost competition seats, which shyly appear in the passenger compartment. This supercar of at least 705 HP of power promises, and a lot.

It will have more than 700 horsepower and will be largely based on the Ferrari 488 Challenge competition. A declaration of intentions.

The engine of this Ferrari 488 will be based on the competition unit, and its power will be at least 705 HP, focusing its sights clearly on heavyweights like the Porsche 911GT2 RS, presented just a few months ago at Goodwood. This high-flying engine will be accompanied by an improved gearbox and electronics, which should bring its dynamic behavior to levels never before seen in the brand. Be patient, because fortunately, we will meet you in a few weeks. Moreover, we can approach him and tell you all his details at the Geneva Motor Show.
