If we’re being terse, the Ferrari 488 GTB is a facelifted, turbocharged Ferrari 458, which replaces the lovely Italia after six years. But really, the Ferrari 488 GTB is something much bigger. It’s Ferrari’s first turbo-assisted mid-engined car since the iconic F40, and a sea-change in Ferrari’s future car roadmap. And that bodywork isn’t different for change’s sake – there’s a 50 per cent increase in speed-generated downforce, up to 325kg of the stuff (that’s the equivalent of four bloke’s worth of force pushing you down onto the road). Ferrari also claims even faster gearchanges and even cleverer adaptive suspension.
Closing up the OEM fender gap, and jumping up to a larger / wider wheel set, we had this rare Novitec Corsa Blu Ferrari 488 GTB fit with the new 21×9 and 22×12 Brixton Forged WR7 Targa 3-piece wheels finished in 120 grit brushed Smoke Black. Not only providing flush to fender offsets, the larger / wider wheels visually fill the wheel-well and allow for a larger 255/30/21 and 335/25/22 tire.
