New Car In-Stock: Ferrari 488 GTB

At Hippo Prestige, we enjoy having a crowning glory to offer our customers. In the past, we have had a Ferrari 458 Italia, a yellow and black Lamborghini Aventador Roadster and a McLaren 675LT Coupe. At the start of the new year, we have a McLaren 570 GT, but now we have a beautiful Ferrari 488 GTB in-stock.

We have a great selection of prestige cars available for purchase and the Ferrari 488 GTB will be available for purchase in the next month. It will be available in the colour, black, that makes it look sharp and classy.

488 GTB’s engine

Unsurprisingly with a Ferrari, this car is fast and very quick. Under its bonnet, it has a 4.0-litre turbocharged V8 petrol engine, developing 661 bhp. It is paired with a seven-speed, duel-clutch sequential automatic gearbox, meaning it can shift up the gears smoothly and quickly.

This 488 GTB races from 0-60 mph in 3.0 seconds, making it one of the quickest cars available on the road. If you take this car to a race track and accelerate to the top speed, you will hit 205 mph. Now whilst fuel efficiency might not be a high priority with this car, it is always good to know it. The combined fuel economy for the Ferrari 488 GTB is 24.8 mpg.

488 GTB’s Interior

With a Ferrari, you will be unsurprised to learn that the 488 GTB is extremely comfortable. The seat and the steering wheel is easily adjustable to ensure you get the perfect driving position, which is essential in supercars like this one. The radio and sat-nav can only be controlled by the driver, thanks to many of the controls being on the steering wheel rather than the dashboard. The dashboard itself has a gorgeous carbonfibre finish.

With the 488 GTB you do get the famous Ferrari Vehicle Dynamic Assistant (VDA). It is a small screen to the left of your dials. It shows the temperature of such items as the tyres, brakes and the engine. It is colour coded so blue means things need warming up, whilst green means you are good to go.

Trust us when we say that when you sit inside the Ferrari 488 GTB, you are sitting is an extremely classy and comfortable place, that defies all the supercar stereotypes that usually affect Ferraris.

488 GTB’s Drive & Performance

Now let’s talk performance. It is a Ferrari and therefore you expect certain things from its performance. We can tell you that it delivers. You might think that a car low to the ground, with a powerful engine and impressive speed, would be uncomfortable to drive. If you put it in the softer of its two modes, you will very much mistaken. It smothers the imperfections in the majority of road surfaces, ensuring you have a smooth, comfortable ride, without noticing any issues like bumps or potholes.

Moving on to the even more enjoyable aspects of the 488 GTB, the handling. Ferrari have ensured that the 488 GTB is balanced and exceptionally adjustable. It allows you drive it as if it was a normal hot hatchback, meaning it is balanced no matter what speed you are going, giving you the comfort and the confidence to drive it how you wish to drive it without the worry of losing control. When it comes to cornering, the 488 GTB has phenomenal amounts of grip and the traction allows you to hit a corner at any given speed and come out the other side smiling.

We would say that the handling on this car is near perfect. But if you have any doubts, then why not take a look at this or any other prestige car we have on sale and see for yourself? We expect that you will not be disappointed, but in fact, thrilled with the Ferrari 488 GTB.
