Successor to the 458 Italia, the 488 GTB marked a new direction for the Italian carmaker. It was the one of the first Ferrari V8 supercars to get forced induction on the mid-engined platform. The 488 GTB is powered by a 3.9-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 engine which makes 660 hp and 760 Nm of torque. This monstrous engine comes mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. The engine catapults the car from 0-100 kmph in just 3 seconds.
