It combines the finest race-developed technological solutions with the joy of plain air driving to deliver an exhilarating experience behind the wheel. The model’s engine, dynamics, and aerodynamics are derived from two track cars: the 488 Challenge and the 488 GTE. The latter won the GT class of the FIA World Endurance Championship in 2017, thus giving Ferrari a total of five GT Manufacturers’ titles since the championship’s inception in 2012.
