While the “leak” of Ferrari 488 GTO just wouldn’t have been complete w/o a photo leak. Well, that’s now been rectified via this image, which is currently doing the rounds on social media.
The quality isn’t great, but some things are crystal clear: it is a newer, so-called “hardcore” imagining of the 488. The front end bearing most of the redesign. The diffuser, rear spoiler, front bonnet and bumper are all carbon fiber. Newer images reveal the bonnet with deep vent, refereed to as an S-duct.The side blades are of particular interest, at the front of the forward wheels. The aggressive new skirt adds to the “hardcore” make over. And one cannot forget the all-important racing stripes.
The new 20-inch wheels are 40% lighter. The engine has its origins in the V8 488 Challenge racer.
