Singapore Premiere For Ferrari 488 GTB

The Ferrari 488 GTB has officially made its debut in Singapore, the first appearance for the super car in the city state following the International Motor Show of Geneva in March this year.

The top speed for the 488GTB is quoted by the Maranello based firm as 330 km/h (205 mph) although that might get you dozens of points on your licence if you managed to reach such a velocity in Singapore.

Close to 100 guests attended the launch which took place at the exclusive prancing horse showroom of official importer, Ital Auto.

The Ferrari 488 GTB sets a new benchmark for the sports car sector. 40 years from the launch of Ferrari's iconic first ever mid-rear-engined V8 berlinetta, the 308, the Ferrari 488 GTB opens a new chapter in the history of cars with this particular architecture.

Designed by the Ferrari Style Centre, the Ferrari 488 GTB's sculptural forms are completely new. They accentuate the car's sportiness yet retain the classically clean, pure lines typical of Ferrari's legendary styling. The seamless interweaving of form and function is clear in every detail.

Certain design elements are also obvious nods to the past, not least the 308 GTB-inspired styling of the flared flanks.

The extreme power required by the car is delivered by the new 3,902cc turbo engine, which is coupled with a seven-gear F1 dual-clutch gearbox featuring Variable Boost Management, which optimally distributes torque (a maximum 760Nm in seventh gear).
