    Another award for the 488 GTB



    The V8 berlinetta is Robb Report UK “Supercar of the Year”

    London, 21 April 2016 – The incredible Ferrari 488 GTB continues to garner the accolades from the world’s automotive and lifestyle media with another “Supercar of the Year” award – this time from Robb Report UK which has been launched on newsstands and online today. The first issue of the UK edition includes the inaugural “Cars of the Year” awards which recognises the best cars launched in the last 12 months.

    Erin Baker, Automotive Editor of Robb Report UK, Editor of Goodwood Road&Racing and Telegraph Cars Columnist, declared: “Ferrari has entered new territory and gone straight to the top of the class. The 488 will kiss 60mph in three seconds and accelerate to 205 mph in the manner of a surface-to-air missile. Even by Ferrari standards this car feels astonishingly fast.”

    Meanwhile, Harry Metcalfe, founder and ex-editor of EVO magazine, went so far as to say: “ The 488 is a game-changer for the junior supercar class.” And, fellow Cars of the Year judge, Ben Oliver, Contributing Editor at CAR magazine, summarised his experience as: “performance is nothing short of outrageous and that’s before we even mention the sublime chassis.” “It remains intoxicating to drive”.

    The Ferrari 488 GTB has won many awards from media in many different countries, making it one of the most successful Ferrari cars of all time in terms of award wins. As Ferrari’s first foray into turbo-charging since the iconic F40 of 1987, the 488 GTB delivers 670hp in a progressive and linear way that encourages drivers to push the engine to the maximum, while also delivering the iconic flat-plane crank sound of a Ferrari V8.
