It’s god damn fast enough. What manufacturers should focus on is the FEELing of the car, and for turbo engines, Ferrari have done the best. Still not as exciting as a GT3 or a speciale, but the performance is mental enough.

Oh the guy who did 5.1 0-60 in 720s.


User avatar

Fastedee  4m ago @Freakz

Maybe slightly but you'd really need Road & Track and Car and Driver to test it as well. We know under Motor Trends testing it outaccelerated Ford GT and 991 Turbo S by a slight margin. The 458 ranged from 6.5-7 seconds 0-100 mph in US testing equal or better than Euro testing for AMG GT-R. Sport Auto France got 6.2 0-100 mph without advantage of rollout for 458. It's probably emission and safety regulations as a 0-100 in 7 car will still be too much car for a poor driver.

My bet is 740 PS.0-100 km/h in 2,7s, 0-200 km/h in 7,5s, incredible track performance and the best handling/steering/feeling/drivetrain ever made by Ferrari.

 

User avatar

I would like to see version that is more luxurious than 720s even if it does 7.7-7.8 0-200 and quarter mile consistently 10.0-10.1 at 143-145 mph. It should be faster on track than McLaren and sound a lot better. No one would care about tiny acceleration difference.

I think it does need to be faster than the LaFerrari on a short track.

Maybe it is a good time to make some speculations about the power and weight figures of "Speciale" version of 488 GTB. We can read in newspapers that it will most likely have 700 HP. I dont think so.

What do you guys think about it ?

My bet is at least 720 PS (HP) and at least 100 KGs less weight (amongs of other improvements ofc).

 

User avatar

armands17  6m ago

No matter what, McLaren has already outgunned the Ferrari with the 720S and Senna. Lamborghini with it's Performanté too. Not only McLaren 720S and Huracán Performante are a lot faster than the 488 GTB, they are also more civilized. For the 488 GTB to get the lead, it has to get rid of it's trim, tech and features (like always), which already are less than McLaren offers. Ferrari really needs to step up it's game, because it's now the one, that has to catch up... Kind of pathetic, really...


User avatar

dddd  6m ago @armands17

Actually people who own that cars usually say that 488 GTB is very comfortable, very easy to drive and even "too civilized" for mid-engined supercar. Journalists also say so.

Performante is a beast on tracks and it is like it should be.

720S is a monster when we talk about performance level and that is very good thing. But it is a totally new costruction.

488 GTB...basically is a 458 Italia after face lifting with turbo engine and with some improvements. And here i can agree with you that 488 is not that i would say a "proper answer" when we talk about competitors in supercars segment. But its still one of the best mid-engined supersport cars that is currently in production.


User avatar

Fastedee  6m ago @dddd

Pobst had to drive the 488 a special way it accelerates so fast. It's more of an all round sports car with good aerodynamics than a track machine. It only generates 110 kg of downforce vs 250+ for track monsters like Porsche, Mercedes, Chevy and Dodge make. Still it gets around a track very fast. The 720s is relatively docile for such a rocketship.


User avatar

n21t4  6m ago @armands17

The 488 GTB doesn’t compete with the Senna, it competed with the 650S. And the Ferrari had much better track performance, but straight line performance was close. Think the McLaren edges it slightly.

Huracán LP640-4 Performante doesn’t compete directly against the 488 GTB either. That’s what the Huracán LP610-4 does, and on this website, the 488 GTB beats it on 7/8 tracks.

All the cars mentioned, excluding the Huracán LP610-4 and 650S, have come out more than a year later, which gives more than enough development time and technology innovation. If it was one year then it wouldn’t be a problem. Even then, one year is a good amount of time to make improvements. Randy drove the 918 Spyder in the comparison against the P1 and said it beat the pre-production 918 by over a second.

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.

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  9m 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  9m 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  9m 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  9m 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.


User avatar

Chanante  6m ago @dddd

In straight line may be it will be slower tahn 720s because the race to power makes maclaren is absurd. Any body neednt this performance to enjoy. In track 488 special will be fast and it is more important than absurd straigt line performance.

DrDuke  10m 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.

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

Fastedee  10m 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.

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  10m 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.

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.

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

The Dodge is heavy, correct. The 675LT is a limited edition, correct. The Huracán LP640-4 Performante is slower than the 488 GTB in a straight line, correct. But when you continue to say “and on every track except the Nürburgring”, that is incorrect and I don’t even have to look at a comparison between the two.

The Huracán Performante already beats the 675LT on two tracks, and beats the 720S on a few tracks too. And these are quicker than the 488 GTB on track.

I don’t believe that video. The Lamborghini has too much downforce, less power and way less torque. I don’t know what curb weight is for the Lamborghini, but the Ferrari also has a lighter dry weight.

The Huracán LP640-4 Performante isn’t that much faster than the Huracán LP610-4, if you’ve seen the DragTimes video. That same channel raced the same Huracán LP610-4 against the 650S Spider, and the McLaren did way more damage than the Performante, and the 650S and 488 are on par.

Guess we’ll have to wait for a proper side by side view because no one can tell if there were jump starts from that sky view.

Are you sure the Performante is faster than the GTB? Remember the 488 GTB is quite even with the 650S in straight line acceleration. Here’s a new video...

By a little in U.S. spec. European models favour 488 over 160 km/hr.

Not to be prejudiced but when you see that funny print you know it's bullcrap. These Ruskies get 13 second quarter miles for Vanquish and 11 second plus for 488. The only worse guys are the Supercar Drivers who get 10.65 quarter in 918, 10.9 in P1 and 11.1 in LaFerrari! Not so super eh? lol!

I think most people who buy Ferrari's are incompetent drivers, most likely rich idiots who buy the car(s) for show: They tend to fail or crash somewhere later on. Our friend dddd is sad because Ferrari's tend to end up in the hands of those idiots thus losing races etc. dddd is not a Ferrari hater lol.

In 2016, a white 488 GTB did 10.37 seconds @ 137mph. That’s literally right on point with the 650S.

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.

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.

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.

F12 had a bit better driver.


User avatar

Freakz  11m ago @Fastedee

Yep, the 488 did have the higher trap speeds (in both 1/4 and 1/2 mile) as well as being quicker in the 1/2 mile. The F12 has a crazy top end but the 488 managed to beat it out.


User avatar

Fastedee  11m ago @Freakz

F12 is faster above 170 mph but both cars were nowhere near what a pro could do

Two modern Ferraris and their results : 1/4 mile times are horrid, 1/4 mile and 1/2 mile trap speeds are truly abysmal and pathetic. Sorry to say that but its beyond understanding. New E63 AMG S is quicker than these F-cars.


User avatar

dddd  11m 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 ?

"So you need a pro to achieve a decent results in Ferrari ?"

no, it only takes two douchebags > ferrari haters from fastestlaps to set the fastest time :))


User avatar

Fastedee  11m ago @dddd

Actually M5's and M6's were in the high 12's to low 13's with regular drivers. I remember on of those Ruskies beating an M5 with a 13 flat in an eight Speed Vanquish which is over a second worse than its best result. 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.

The M5 F10 has a best 1/4 mile of 12/122 and the M5 F10 anniversary a best 1/2 mile of 18.6 nearly a second slower than those goobers in those Ferraris and 2 seconds behind with comprable drivers.

User avatar

Fastedee  11m ago @dddd

159 mph in 18 seconds is extremely fast considering the driver did a sixteenth mile in 5 seconds. What is the 1\8 th mile time of this car? Oh those were good drivers so that doesn't count. Car and Driver got a 0-160 of 22.9 in the ZO6 the 488 did it in 17.5 with crap drivers.

I stumbled upon this same video yesterday and was disappointed that 488 driver botched the start. Given equal start for both cars, this would have been a great showcase of how viciously fast 488 is.


User avatar

Fastedee  11m ago @dddd

If you think those guys pulling low 10's in McLarens on Dragtimes aren't near pro level skill...Porsche is awd so it is easier to access the performance but so what?


User avatar

Fastedee  11m ago @FastestLaps

The 488s mph numbers are from Autocar who aren't especially fast.


User avatar

Fastedee  11m ago @dddd

Pros achieved the numbers above genius so I guess they helped.


User avatar

Fastedee  11m ago @FastestLaps

I saw behind the scenes look at MTs test of the ZL1 and just a bit of extra wheelspin and you're lookin at a 4.5 0-60. With two garbage drivers the. R8 V10 plus will win all day long but with two good drivers Audi loses every time.
