Ferrari’s greatest achievement with the 488 GTB is not simply how fast it goes.
Nor is it how it has integrated turbochargers onto its mid-mounted V8 yet retained far more character than any other manufacturer that has tried artificially aspirating its engines.
Nor is it that it has given the 488 all the track poise and ability of the 458 Speciale that went before it.
No, the feat is how all of the above have been melded into what is undoubtedly today’s greatest supercar.
Even those testers who think Ferrari comes with certain brand attributes they’d rather live without, testers who think modern supercars are often too fast and too aloof to be enjoyable on the road, drove the 488 and admitted that, if their numbers came up, “yeah, I’d probably have one”.
