We are pleased to offer this 2016 Ferrari 488 GTB finished in Rosso Corsa over a Nero leather interior with Rosso contrast stitching. Introduced in 2015 as the successor to the 458 Italia, the 488 Gran Turismo Berlinetta (GTB) is the first turbocharged mid-engined Ferrari since the legendary F40, with its award-winning 3.9L twin-turbo V8 generating over 660 HP. Improving on more than just power, the 488 features an array of Ferrari motorsport-derived technology including active aerodynamics, Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, adaptive suspension, lightweight materials, and a full suite of Ferrari driver assistance systems. This 2016 example was delivered new to Ferrari of West Palm Beach, FL, has been maintained by authorized dealerships under extended warranty. Benefitting from a major service in March of 2021, this 488 is now being offered for auction by its owner out of Florida showing just over 11k miles on the odometer.
This 488 GTB was ordered in the classic shade of Rosso Corsa (322) with Scuderia fender shields and red-painted brake calipers. A removable gloss black vinyl wrap was applied over the roof under the current ownership. The 488 was developed in-house at the Ferrari Styling Center under the direction of Flavio Manzoni, and was designed to produce 50% more downforce and 50% less drag than its predecessor. The 488 utilizes Ferrari’s Aero Pillar technology, which takes high-pressure air impacting the front of the car and deflects it beneath the flat undercarriage and to the rear-mounted radiators instead. The wide rear finned diffuser is equipped with dynamic flaps that will deploy under high speed, and the large opening above the tailpipes acts as a rear wing that directs air through the tail to produce more downforce. This 2016 example is said to be in excellent condition overall, having been stored indoors and under its original Ferrari car cover. The seller reports the rear bumper was replaced under prior ownership following the damage shown on CARFAX in 2017, additional images are provided in the gallery. The factory 20” 5-spoke wheels wear a satin black finish, yellow Ferrari center caps, and new Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires mounted in December of 2021.
The interior features Nero leather upholstery extending to the upper dashboard, door panels, and center console accented by special-ordered Rosso contrast stitching throughout. The optional power-operated seats include 4-way adjustment and red embroidered prancing horse emblems in the headrests. Driver’s amenities include optional front and rear parking cameras, front and rear parking sensors, dual-zone automatic climate control, a six-speaker sound system, navigation, dual digital instrument screens, and a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel with push-button ignition and the Manettino driving mode knob.
The 488 GTB is powered by a Type F154CB 3.9L V8 with twin Honeywell turbochargers featuring low-density titanium-aluminide turbine wheels and twin air-to-air intercoolers. This fully aluminum dry-sump lubricated engine features a flat-plane crankshaft, direct injection, and continuously variable valve timing. Over 660 HP and 560 lb.-ft of torque are sent to the rear wheels by way of a Getrag 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
