Ferrari 488 GTB hits 341 kmph on a public road!

Yes, you read that right! And before you dismiss it as a testing stunt, let me tell you, this was done on public roads! They were the famed German Autobahns, but they are public roads!

The Ferrari 488 GTB is the latest model from the Italians and you know a two things are certain about a Ferrari. One, it will go fast! and two, it will look beautiful no matter if it at a standstill or zooming past you on the highway!

Powering the beast a 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged V8 which belts out 670 PS of power at 8000 rpm and 760 Nm of torque at 3000 rpm. Ferrari has worked really hard to make the torque delivery linear and says the maximum torque is delivered in the 7th gear! The 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox is manufactured by Getrag for Ferrari and is inspired from Ferrari F1.

Official figures state the maximum speed for the Ferrari 488 GTB to be 330 km/h however, we can attribute the difference to calibration and speedometer errors which are unavoidable in all cars.
