That 488 GTB is bone stock by the way.

@dddd Yes, those huge wheels (22") are making a significant difference. You may have heard of it in physics, it's called rolling resistance and unsprung weight.

Without good start bad 1/4 mile time may be understandable but that trap speed is more than horrid. Either this car is 100 BHP down or power or dunno...That huge wheels can make such a huge difference ? (they are uncalibrated for launch control system)

Lol well there was Jeremy Clark son saying that mclaren a are "rolls Royce comfy" and many Ferrari fanboys on this forum swearing that the 488 is super comfy.

Just a big discepancy.

...Who buys a mid engine exotic and expects that? Thas like buying a GT500 and saying, Oh man i hope this gets as much MPG as the Prius....

Like, Its good to have, But its a SuperCar, Kinda dont get it. There are cars in this price range that fill that, S65, Continent GTS etc

So I was watching the salomandrin video last night. Even in bumpy road setting they thought it was too rough... didn't some people say that the new 488 is like more comfortable than any other supercar?


User avatar

It depends on both track and car, Can be less and can be more

BR2, thanks. that proves that MPSC2 is roughly 1 sec. per minute faster than
MPSS.

Why would you even care that somebody has a faster car anyway? If you own one why would that matter? Even if you didn't why would it? Wouldn't bother me if this was as fast as a 360.

458 was a fantastic car in its time. And its still a great car.

But now 488 GTB also deserves respect. I have read that many people say that this car is even too easy to drive fast and too comfortable for mid-engined supercar but despite that it is incredibly quick around the tracks !

From this point i dont care anymore that Mclarens may be faster in straight line. 488 is so good on tracks. It is much more impressive than straight line in my book.

@Chanta

Saying which has the better engine, Is like saying which car is best, Power doesnt make a better engine, Nor does it when it has similiar performance for being heavier, That alone is not an attribute for it, There are plenty of people who go boths ways saying this ones better that ones better, You can easily get more power out of the 675 engine, Same as the 488, There are tons of people on the planet who think an LS3 is the best engine ever made, Its actually very hard to understand why someone would call an engine the best, Specially if you just hear about it.

hello, it's been a long time, but whenever i see stupid people posting here with false claims and out of their bum bums, i feel like i must chime in to sort couple of things out:

db725-hitler-baby.jpg

trump is the next president and the haters started a riot. i support him too - woohoo! he's the most hated man on earth, just like the 488 is on fastestlaps.

488 GTB breaks records once again and the haters try to make it sound like another 9/11 is about to happen. back to the kitchen/bunker hillary/hitler fans!

this is the base version of the 488, the speciale version will be lighter, more powerful and will set even faster laptimes! the haters will be comparing it to a 918 spyder and chiron in terms of straight line speed lol.

saxy you poor soul, still trying to look all open minded with your new 'F'ake avatar. it won't work with us you bimbo bashing hypocrite nazi fanboy. i'm sure you'd be the highest bidder on ebay if adolph hitler's costume would show up for sale.

haters, stop crying and the times are very much valid and official with video to back it up.

ferrari steps up the game without the bullshit 4wd, 1.8m rear spoiler, 2 extra monkey rear seats and a made in kraut land tag on the drivers side door, to give you the impression that you're actually driving a super fast bulletproof car that can be tracked and driven 24/7 without losing a single drop of oil during your 365 days journey and an out of this world traction control that makes driving the 911 on any surface in the world + mars and the moon a walk in the park.

You can clearly see, In the top left the data, Tyre, MPSC2s......

one comment. I hope, for once, ferrari will imitate mclaren and produce a 488 implementation similar to 675lt, with the same no-compromise approach. not saying this has to be the only 488 to be produced, but one model to pair with the standard 488, just like 650 and 675lt and not like 458 and 458speciale. ferrari needs to dare more, every now and then. stop this politically correctedness.

One thing is certain. 488's engine has much better throttle response. Everyone who has driven both cars confirmed that.

I believe it does. Hardly surprising comparing how much money McLaren Automotive have compared to Ferrari. Ferrari's whole reputation was on the line when they developed their new turbo engine (initially for California T, then 488 and then Lusso)


User avatar

manone  2m  

And the 488 that ran the 1:07.4 was on MPSC2s, Not MPSS

link to a reference?

Manone are you ok? you saying that 670ps is not more than 580ps? Both cars are producing more power than stated, not just the Porsche.

you always trolled about:
1. german turbo engines' output being substantially over the 5% tolerance level
2. ferraris scamming their customers for being underpowered.

if you combine both idiotic statements you end up with an approximate effective same-power engines from 670-580ps claimed.

I will say that the Sport Auto 488 dyno'd 700bhp

what are acceleration figures sportauto achieved? 30+ps
would suggest an improvement of few tenths here and there compared to the average results.

To say which engine is better you have to compare torque/power curves and compare response latency (throttle response). First is easy second you have to drive them back to back and try out yourself or trust what auto journalists say.

And then add non-performance factors like fuel economy, reliability, running cost...


User avatar

Chanante  2m  

It is better performance engine because have more power in more range of revs. 760 Nm...and the performance is similar with 200 kg more. Easily to understand it. All engines have 5% more or less than claims, 30ps is 4.5% of 670ps.

In terms of the tyres, Trofeo R are better but Ferrari have a "clausula" with michelin and Cup 2 or Trofeo R not is the better tyres for bad conditions and Cup2 is a optional tyre in this case.


User avatar

BR2+  2m  

in really this engine is better than 3.8 V8 of 675

Please tell me why and how its better?..

And having 30bhp more then advertised is normal? Yeah if its German. And you do know, That if is a certain tyre is built WITH and FOR the car along its development, Can actually be worse in performance if the tyre there changing too is actually grippier? It could go either way depending on the car and said tyre, And you "Really" have to look beyond that tyre excuse(2011) We all no tyres can make a difference, But there are alot more things that do and perform ALONG with them, And more companys are making bespoke tyres along with developing them with the car.

And again, That "Run off" on hockenheim is nothing new, That was actually addressed YEARS ago, Hell i was even in the conversation, He has done it with Multiple cars, M3, 360, GT3 etc If saidvmagazine/programme allows it, Then so will i, And so should you, Gerbhardt doesnt always do it, But it depends on the car and the speed he is going, Sometimes he goes way wide taking all 4 wheels off the actual corse, Sometimes he is perfectly planted, So its completely legit.

As for which one is more impressive, It shouldnt take a genius to figure that one out.

Yes 488 engine is a monster, in really this engine is better than 3.8 V8 of 675 but the problem of 488 is the weight. If you put other tyres in 675LT, it does worst times (example in a Quattroruote test of 675LTe Spyder without Trofeo R), 675 is faster for two things, the tyres and the light weight...the set up and rest of the parts are better in the 488... very near with 200kg more and cup 2 is to be recognized.


User avatar

FastestLaps  2m  

I think 488 engine is as powerful as 675 LT engine. I also believe 488 GTB will pull away from Aventador SV in high speed autobahn race. 488 is still a monster, even if it can't quite beat McLarens.


User avatar

Chanante  2m  

700PS!!! but is normal is near 5% more than Ferrari claims. All brands have more less 5% than claims. For example in the test of 991 Turbo S MKI it maked 607ps with 560 claimed, it is 8.4% more and its not normal when the maximum must be 588. Other examples is Aventador with 750ps in the test (7.2% more)... yes Ferrari have the notoriety but others did trap....

sroser  2m  

I will say that the Sport Auto 488 dyno'd 700bhp and the driver used a hell of a lot of run-off on the Hockenheim Short lap, but then the AutoBild drivers hop kerbs like mad on Sachsenring.

Saxy, you said that Porsche is faster and the time of 488 is invalid. Ok, after you said that Porsche have more weight...OK. Now you said that Ferrari is more faster and have the 0-200 figure...ok. Well Can you tell me now with your experience and all you said before why Porsche is faster than 488? I dont undertand, if 488 is more power, less weight, have better times in all track and better straight perfomance and you said that Porsche 911 Trubo S MK2 is faster than 488....
