So 708 PS/ 1540 kgs 488 GTB is able to do :

0 - 100 km/h in 2,8s
0 - 200 km/h in 8,4s
0 - 250 km/h in 13,6s
0 - 300 km/h in 23,9s

Great numbers but 488 Speciale Edition will have to be significantly quicker due to existing of 720S, 991 GT2 RS and Performante which is a track beast.

 

User avatar

Freakz  2m ago

Don't get your hopes high and just have your fingers crossed. I will only believe a 488 Speciale beating a 720S when I see it lol.


User avatar

dddd  2m ago @Freakz

Sorry to say that but i agree. 720S has around 800 BHP crank power. 488 GTB has only about 670 PS...Ferrari will have to start to play hard and they will need at least 800-820 BHP if they want to be competitive against 720S and 991 GT2 RS. If Ferrari made 488 Speciale slower than Mac and 991 GT2 RS it would horrid and hilarious...

Honestly can you imagine if 488 SE would be slower than 720S ? It would a disaster. They have to realize that, dont they ?


User avatar

Fastedee  2m ago @dddd

Ferrari only needs a slight weight reduction and 675 bhp at crank. Car and Driver Dynoed a 458 at 495 bhp a huge loss but not unusual with US models. Still it did 0-60(97 kph) in 3.0. 0-100(161 kph) in 6.5. 0-150(242 kph) 15.5. An earlier model they tested did 0-60 3.3 0-100 7.0 and 150 in 17. It was likely losing a staggering 100 bhp. The 488 likely gets 600 bhp at the crank and the 570 gt 570 as it was a little slower. The 720s could do a barely sub 10 with 750-760 bhp and 710 at the crank. The 488 would likely need 730 in Europe and 750-770 bhp in the U.S. to generate the necessary 670-675 crank horsepower to do exactly 10 flat in the quarter and average mid 7's to 200 with a 12 second 150.Those would be fast enough numbers.


User avatar

dddd  2m ago @Fastedee

The question is : will Ferrari start to play hard again ? 458 and F12 were high end supercars in their times. Nowadays 488 is just and "average" supercar in segment. 812 is in better position due to incredible N/A V12 engine but performance level of that car is not great for current standards.


User avatar

Fastedee  2m ago @dddd

The 812 annihilates every front engined production car ever made. The C6 ZR1, One 77, C7 ZO6 ,AMG GT R, SLS Black and McLaren SLR have difficulty doing 10 flat 0-200. The only car that kinda competes is another Ferrari. ...the F12.
The 488 edges all its competitors except the McLarens. The GT2 RS will likely be negligibly quicker. McLaren is overcompensating for a slight handling deficit visa vis its competitors.

Nice to see such a good test drive of 488 GTB. Great 0-60 mp/h time and incredible Laguna Seca lap time. Good to see that 488 has excellent opinions in practically every dimension. And it is such a good car even though above 60 mp/h it has only moderate acceleration capabilities. What a car would it be if it had a decent straight line acceleration and a proper amount of horses ( ~750-780).


User avatar

saxy  3m ago @dddd

750hp? Gosh. /smh


User avatar

DrDuke  3m ago @dddd

Most car magazine drivers (not to mention the owners) are already overchallenged with this soft road setup and the amount of power. More power wouldn't help much for better lap times - a track focused suspension setup (springs) would make it faster.

Randy says in the motortrend article from above: The car is relatively soft to me.


User avatar

Fastedee  3m ago @dddd

Had the best high speed acceleration of all the cars in best drivers car. Tesla did 60-125 in 8 seconds. 488 did 60-135 in 7.9. So at least the 570 gt is unquestionably slower.

why the porky 911 lost and finished 3rd ? cheating and pretending to have less power won't help either :))

the 488 is a monster in the right hands, muricans still can't get their heads out of their arses and do a proper launch in a rwd car, with all the electronics doing most of the hard work + the murican pig spec which gives you the impression the competition is no slouch.

speaking of 720s, lately some hot pics of the engine bay has been floating all around the internet and the testers mentioned something about drop in power when the stew starts to warm up when pushed hard lol

you can say this is another trick mclaren is pulling to withdraw more buyers that are not aware of such dirty trick they been pulling in all of their cars with the v8 turbo, which has been overheating around the track and continuously going full throttle, which is really sad for such a car with all the hype that costs 300k

User avatar

Fastedee  3m ago @saxy

Dodge Demon is so heavy in 808 bhp mode it'll be slightly slower. 675 LT is a limited edition. Performante is slower in straight line and. On every track except the Nurburgring. However, Ferrari needs to let the big U.S. mags test the 488. Whatever the list price. the 812 Superfast and GT2 RS will likely sell over 500k in reality.

User avatar

saxy  3m ago @Fastedee

So much bull crap in this post of yours.
The 808 hp version ran 9.9s in the quarter. That's easily faster than the 488gtb.

675lt a limited car? There were 1000 of them. So are we going to exclude all the 918s, P1s and Lafferaris, which are all limited cars from this site? Even GT3RS, GT3s and GT2RS's are limited too.

I thought we were talking about Quarter mile times. now you're bringing up track times and top speeds? Top speeds there are so many cars that have higher top speeds. Track times, even the Viper ACR is faster and that's way cheaper than $500k.


User avatar

Fastedee  3m ago @saxy

9.9 according to Dodge. Put the 488 under the same conditions and it'd do 9.7. If Autobild tested it under the same conditions as the Ferrari 10.6-10.7. The Hellcat couldn't beat the NSX with 707 so the 488 ain't gonna lose to a land yacht with 808. If they made a 1000 675 lts then its faster along with 720s. McLaren is British after all and did make a silk purse out of the sows ear of a German engine. The 488 has been tested by many European outfits and its slowest times Stomp the 991 in every form and every test. Sport Auto may be crappy for pros but a driver far worse has to get sub 11's before dddddd will believe it.


User avatar

Fastedee  3m ago @saxy

The Viper has made huge concessions to achieve its laptimes whilst the 488 balances far greater speed with great laptimes that are still amongst the top 3-5 on most tracks.


User avatar

cosimo  3m ago @Fastedee

what the jerk fails to mention is that all these dodge and chevys end up overheating and if it can run much faster than anything in the 1/4 mile don't expect it to handle and vice versa.

it's no big deal to squeeze out more power, but the main concern is, for how long can these high powered one way cars can hold up before they blow up and blame it on isis ? lololol

User avatar

dddd  4m ago

I would LOVE to see 488 GTB trapping 1/4 mile at 138-140 mp/h but i have never seen anything like this when we talk about stock-customers cars...All i have seen are abysmal results that are below any standards like 127-130 mp/h and 11,1-11,7s. Its a shame for any modern Ferrari trapping 1/4 mile below 132 mp/h. I know that bad starts may sometimes happen so low 11s runs are possible but modern F-cars should have vast amounts of power that allow to accelerate on decent levels (100-200 km/h in low 5s, 200-250 km/h in less than 5s and 200-300 km/h in less than 14s).

Ferrari is the most iconic supercars maker in the world and all they need to be on the top again is to trash Mclaren in terms of build quality and performance level.

Whoever think that im Ferrari hater is wrong...I just cant stand their soft play. Competition is strong as never and Ferrari should know it and react in a proper way.

Ferrari's chance is now 488 "Speciale" and i hope it is a decent answer for 720S and 991 GT2 RS.

Noone is saying about GT2 RS atm but i can almost guarantee that this car will have mind-boggling performance...

There is possibly a grain of truth with the 458 in America. Sport Auto France are not that quick but recorded a 9.5 0-200. Motor Trend recorded a 3 second 0-60 but an 11 second 0-125. Road & Track the same and Car and Driver 11.5.
Road & Track clocked 0-100 mph in 6.8 in the Speciale versus 7.1 in the heavier and less powerful Jag SVR.
The trap speeds for the Russians are far too high(which is a hallmark of a slow start) for 11.6 and 11.8 which should be 190-93 not 204-210. The dragtimes guys aren't good in the Ferrari but whether it is as fast as European spec...I don't know. I can't find any North American tests for the 488. You have to shift very close to the redline. That Sportauto video proves it accelerates very fast but if you want an easy dragster get a Porsche.


User avatar

Fastedee  4m ago

Honda studied an American 458 and in Car and Driver, Motor Trend and Road & Track it performs very similarly to the NSX coincidence? In Europe the NSXs 10.5 0-200 with AutoZeitung is well behind the 458s best of 9.4.


User avatar

Look what basic Huracan can do https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFF3uHDoO3k

 

User avatar

Fastedee  4m ago

Yeah very impressive but the trap speed is a lot under the 488's 138-140. On dragtimes a 488 did a 4 second 0-100 on it's way to a 11.1 127 quarter. So either its quick as an evora 410 or crap drivers do better with awd. I guess the V12 Vantage has a 5.9 0-60 cause some idiot who can't.drive stick floored it on a damp road. Also Doug DeMuro tested an ACR that had a best time of 5.2! on its 0-60 log. An NSX will kick that Lambos ass above 1700 m but that means nothing as the best times count not the worst.

User avatar

dddd  4m ago @Fastedee

So you need a pro to achieve a decent results in Ferrari ? In Porsche and Mclaren amateurs can easily achieve factory advertised numbers.

I dont think even pro could help these Ferraris...F12's 1/4 mile trap speed 204 km/h in 11,6s ? Where is 740 HP ? Either this car weighs 2100 kgs or has like 600-620 hp for real. 253 km/h in 18s ? Realy ? I ment it realy ? This car will need about 31-33s to reach 300 km/h. 740 HP hahahahaha.

Im sorry to say that but nowadays new BMW M5/M6 and new E class AMGS are quicker than Ferrari when we talk about world real performance.

Is it possible that these results are abysmal because of drivers ?

Or put another way crappy drivers got an 11.6 130 and 11.8 134 in these cars. The M4 GTS did 12.1 119 with a pro in ideal conditions in MT's greatest drag race.

What i feel is that Lamborghini, Porsche and Mclaren try their best and play as hard as it is possible while Ferrari plays real soft. But thats only my opinion. Ofcourse 900 hp was an exaggeration but about 750 hp is needed.

720S was dynoed at 698 WHP for example...

New Aventador is a little slower than predecessor and 488. Still crazy fast but perhaps a little breath of sanity. McLaren is great but Ferrari is known for passion and refinement. The Speciale will have 675 plus at the wheel and the Superfast is crazy powerful


User avatar

saxy  4m ago @Fastedee

All this hp war is getting way out of hand. I know of some owners preferring to trade in their 488's for 458s instead. Performance isn't everything. A car doesn't get better by just adding hp and lowering lap times.


User avatar

dddd  4m ago @saxy

I could agree coze cars that are able to accelerate from 0 - 200 km/h in less than 10s are already too fast for many customers.

From the other side there is a gropu of customers that want vast power and for them 720S and 991 GT2 RS is a good choice.

Im waiting for times when Ferrari will play hard...Lets say the succsessor of 488 GTB - on paper about 770 HP, for real about 850-900 , lightweight construction and immense performance above that of 720S...When THE HELL FERRARI finally understands that nowadays DOWNplaying of power figures and performance level is a MUST ?

So 100 in 2.9, 200 in 7.0 ,250 in 11.5? 10.1-10.2 quarter at 233-235? It'd be one of the few times you'd call a Ferrari a performance bargain. Near LaFerrari performance for 350k.Of course if it was rwd it'd still lose the odd amateur race to a 991 Turbo S.

dddd you are living in a paralel dimension. The bad results is not for the car. The driver is the mos inportant part in the times and this is a bad driver. On th other hand you dont know very well the numbers of models sold. Ferrari sold more than 2500 models in the las quarther 2017. 488 is a beast and is fasther than Huracan, 650S and aventador. This videos only demonstrate how bad some drivers are who do not know their car and are not able to change gears when it should.

It's painful when some spoiled kid in a 458 loses to a good driver in an awd F Type R when the Jag is over half a second slower in the quarter. 488 is faster than all in its class cept 675 and 720s.

The results of that 488 GTB are horrid, simple awful...I dont know what Ferrari is doing...Additionaly i have read that 488 GTB has relatively poor demand...

Ferrari shouldnt produce "average supercars", they should produce cars that realy shine...

11.8 in 488? Drunk probably had it in normal mode. Rwd is too challenging for these Ruskies. I seen one of these clowns pull a 13 flat in an 8 speed Vanquish and call it an Aston record! Maybe if it was a DB7 GT ...Car and Driver did 11.9! Yep rwd too hard and even the Audi run was bad for AWD.

here you have the torque in each gear

@cosimo
for fastest acceleration you have to rev to the limiter in any ferrari. because the next gear has less power at the wheels.

 

User avatar

cosimo  5m ago

can you do that in the 488 with turbos ? it doesn't seem like that in any of the videos and italians are the best liars on this planet when they introduce new products to the market

owners are dumb and are not capable of hitting the limiter so they let the computer do the shifting for them and while it accelerates so fast they don't have time to look at what rpm it shifted into the next gear

let's be honest, but most of these owners are posers and not true drivers just some next generation kid on the block that got himself an expensive ride thanks to mummy and daddy


User avatar

DrDuke  5m ago @cosimo

well you have to look at the power curve (not in the picture - but visible in your dyno runs). It stays around peak power to the rev limiter.

In general take the power curve of a car. Look at the rev change between 2 gears. Lay a horizontal line into the power curve with the "lenght" of the rev change. Middle it out until you have the most power between the rev changes. Even engines with drop off after peak power needs higher revs for top acceleration.

Sure you can do that in the 488 with launch control - but maybe the car has to be in track/race mode or something to get everything - I didnt drive one until today :)

cosimo  5m ago @DrDuke

not liking how they made the car shift way too fast with double clutch and not hit the limiter for few seconds like the 430

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9WBT6i-sh4


User avatar

fograin  3m ago @cosimo

The difference is that one person (F430) is shifting it manually (meaning by hand - regardless of which transmission they have), and the other person (F488) is allowing the computer to shift the car.

You can let the car bang off the limiter all day long with a proper dual clutch transmission - WHEN it's not in automatic mode.

The special version of that car will be very interesting. Cant wait to see it.


User avatar

cosimo  6m ago

like i said, turbo cars can put down numbers that are totally different from spec sheet provided by the factory

7,250 rpm is where it hits max power and shifts into the next gear there's no point in revving up to 8,000 rpm when your power starts dropping, this is where it sucks when you switch from n/a to turbo

stock

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9OXrRrKJ1Y

unless ferrari is holding back on the track version that could possibly rev up to 8,500 rpm


User avatar

The weird thing about 488 GTB is that owner can have 100 % acceleration potential ONLY (if i understand it correctly) in launch control start. In that video we can easily see that in LC mode 488 GTB is significantly faster than when you want use kick down normally. That is why this car loses in roll drag race against 650S.

 

User avatar

FastestLaps  6m ago

Those modern turbo engines (and non-turbo as well) have very complicated management behavior and different performance in different gears, engine modes etc. I am pretty sure Ferrari limit torque in first couple of gears anyway - fully unleashed that engine could blow tranny pretty quick. Maybe in LC mode they allow more torque.


User avatar

Fastedee  6m ago

Same with NSX. In a regular start Carlos Lagos got a 3.9 second 0-60 but 3.05 with Launch control for Edmunds.


User avatar

dddd  6m ago @FastestLaps

And in LC mode gears changes are made at about 7800 RPM but in normal kick down at ~7400 RPM.


User avatar

dddd  6m ago @Fastedee

Its not only about 0-100 km/h, 488 GTB in LC mode is much quicker in 100-200 km/h and above that due to different gearing.


User avatar

Fastedee  6m ago @FastestLaps

I wonder at what rpm the torque peaks at. If some crazy fool revs it to 4500 in normal before launching thats still gotta be a lot of torque(and tire smoke) The DB11 launch control is a pure safety and tranny saving device. The MT tester got quite frustrated that it wouldn't go much under a 5 flat 0-60 in launch control vs 3.8 relying on his skill. A car with ridiculous torque like the ZO6 really relies in torque management for its tranny.


User avatar

Does 200 in 8.2 here and 222 in 10. Can't Spoof Auto measure their own acceleration runs right?

Sport Auto measured 8,7 s.
Auto Motor und Sport did 8,9 s (0-200 kph) and 10,7 s (0-220 kph).

I don't know where your 10 s 222 kph time came from... :)

That's French Sport Auto in the vid. I'm talking about the German magazine. Also, the french managed 8,5 s with the 488.

Btw. in the video the car launches from 3000 rpm, which is the starting rpm for the Launch Control.

Then there's the American cars you love so much. And last but not least the VW empire you most definitely love.

You should just NOT drive any car. Let me rephrase that. You can just shut your mouth forever because you're just a sad attention seeking pitiful creature that has no passions in life other than hating on other people's success.

What Saloon is that? S8 + is fastest saloon to 200 and barely edges regular Lexus to 200. Panamera Turbo barely wins to 100 mph. Not to mention how much you love Audi and Porsche. Now put the stock 2002 Nurburgring Skyline GTR against any LFA and you'll see a car get wasted. 3.5 seconds to 100 mph is a lifetime.

User avatar

Fastedee  4m ago @cosimo

All factory laps are at least a little suspect. M4 GTS factory lap was a lot slower than LFA. Magazine laps are more realistic and regular LFA equalled 458(7:38) and NSX beat both(7:36). I have no doubt 488 could do a 7:05 factory lap without removing seat. However Ferrari prefers Spoof Auto and Auto Zee Dung to do their Nurburgring laps.


User avatar

Fastedee  4m ago @cosimo

ZO6 runs way too fast on too many different tracks for it to be bias. Americans engineer many things better than Italians so why should they not at least come close with cars? ZO6 has a low lying ohv engine that helps with handling.7:14? Easy. A 488 could easily too with Ferraris own drivers.


User avatar

Fastedee  4m ago @cosimo

I just go by facts. I never said the LFA wasn't the slowest supercar for it's price just that it was fast enough and gave you better sounds and traditional front engine rear drive experience. The transmission is the only real flaw. However if the slowest car in a segment does 100 mph under 8 then maybe that means all the cars in its segment are fast enough. Except for Ferrari all its competitors were awd which has its own tradeoffs.
Similarly for the 190k of a Vantage V12s you could get a car much quicker than it's 3.9 0-60 or 8.4 0-100. However you would then have an awd computer on wheels that couldn't drift for crap and chirps rather than smokes its tires. It would be DCT rather than manual. Its limits are lower than its competitors but far above what could be reached on the road. As Camissa said you get the Vantage for fun and its competitors for fun bragging but joyless driving. The 599 GTO was the only LFA competitor that was better than it as it had a manual option with a N\A V12 and was front engined. It also was faster -which is a tribute to Ferraris greatness- not Lexus's weakness.

Toyota can be a bit Deceptive like VW, but other than these cars, they have built many solid vehicles. Shame they weren't more honest.

You wouldn't think a slow car like the Prius would need very strong brakes. Still, Toyota built solid cars up till 10 years ago which is a long time.
