Just 1 year after its appearance, the first 488 GTBs landed in Vietnam and quickly found their owners. Since then, there have been dozens more “super horses” of the 488 line imported by private enterprises, among which there are also the appearance of three Ferrari 488 Spider (convertible variant of 488 GTB) and a 488 Pista Spider.
With a relatively small number circulating in the country, many 488 car owners in Vietnam have found methods to change their appearance and make their “super horse” become more unique. The most popular way to do this is to paste the color change decal, in addition, for those who have a preference for the car, it is also quite popular to upgrade bodykits from reputable brands or expensive “toys”. . Currently, the Ferrari 488 GTB series is equipped by some car players in Vietnam with bodykits from builders such as Liberty Walk Performance, SuperVeloce Racing, Novitec or Misha Designs priced from hundreds to billions of VND.
However, the 488 GTB appeared in the article as a “unique” version not only in Vietnam but also in the world. After a long time of research and selection, the owner of the most successful supercar in the Vietnamese market decided to upgrade the car with a series of expensive details from famous brands. It is known that the total value of the items on the car is up to more than 2.5 billion VND.
1/ Mansory :
Inherently the world’s most prestigious tuner, Mansory specializes in providing breakthrough tuning packages on supercars, supercars and high-performance sports cars. Although the price is not cheap, but the quality of the “branded” Mansory products are of the highest quality and aesthetics. Perhaps that is why the owner has chosen the Mansory Siracusa 4XX upgrade package with a completely new front end and a design inspired by the Ferrari LaFerrari hypercar.
The entire Mansory replacement details include: front bumper, wind hood, bonnet, wheel flaps and side air vents are all made of lightweight carbon fiber material. The front bumper is sharpened with a shape similar to the Ferrari LaFerrari, emphasizing the pitiness in the position of the air holes. Mansory’s bonnet is embossed and the wheel flap has also been replaced with German-made details to give a seamless look to Ferrari 488 GTB supercar.
2/ Pogea Racing GmbH :
Meanwhile, instead of using the rear bumper of the Mansory Siracusa 4XX package, the owner of this unique version has chosen the details of Pogea Racing’s FPlus Corsa upgrade package. As a result, the rear has an aerodynamic shape with bold cut lines on the rear axle. Combined with the new bumper is a rather large spoiler and a diffuser from Pogea Racing, both details mentioned above are made from carbon fiber to help minimize the “weight” for the car.
Although the name is still quite unfamiliar to most domestic car players, Pogea Racing GmbH founded in 1997 by Eduard Pogea and is widely known when associated with top quality products. Not only selling bodykits with impressive design, German tuners are also famous in the field of upgrading engine capacity, meeting a variety of requirements from customers around the world.
3/ Capristo :
In fact, this used to be the only Ferrari 488 GTB Capristo in Vietnam. First to mention the front carbon fiber front fender and the Capristo exhaust system, but when making this version, the two above details have been removed. The rest of the details on the car can be mentioned as the rearview mirror, side fish fins, air divider, lid cover, rear light recess cover and fuel cap are all made of carbon fiber.
4/ Vossen :
Originally “super horse” used a set of 5-spoke single-spoke wheels, the owner used to choose the elaborate wheels from the PUR Wheels brand before coming to a final decision on the Vossen “branded” wheels. belongs to the Hybrid Forged line with code HF-2.
The Vossen HF-2 multi-spoke wheel set on the Ferrari 488 GTB supercar in Vietnam is painted in a very prominent glossy yellow color, creating a highlight for the overall version of the map. With a sophisticated design, the wheels with diameters up to 20 and 21 inches (front / rear wheels) bring harmony and sophistication to the Italian “horse”.
5/ Frequency Intelligent Exhaust :
Re-engineering the exhaust system is a very popular job in Vietnam in recent years and one of the leading brands to mention is Frequency Intelligent Exhaust (Fi Exhaust). The products of Fi Exhaust show the highest quality of perfection, coupled with an affordable selling price that helps the Taiwanese brand win the hearts of a large number of motorists around the world.
After experiencing the exhaust system of Capristo and Innotech Performance Exhaust (IPE), the owner ordered the exhaust with the stripped muffler of Fi Exhaust to match the rear of Pogea Racing . And yet, the new exhaust system also delivers a more powerful and resonant sound than the original, which is a weakness on a supercar using a turbocharged engine like the Ferrari 488 GTB.
6/ Machine capacity:
Ferrari 488 GTB is equipped with middle-mounted twin-turbocharged V8 engine block, with a capacity of 3.9 liters, producing a maximum capacity of 661 hp at 8,000 rpm and maximum torque of 760 Nm 3,000 rpm machine rev / min. All 661 horsepower is transmitted to the wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch Getrag gearbox developed with F1 technology. Ferrari 488 GTB accelerates from 0-100 km / h in 3 seconds, takes 8.3 seconds to reach 200 km / h, before reaching a top speed of 330 km / h.
However, the car has been recalibrated with the ECU to increase the engine capacity to nearly 800 hp, nearly 140 hp stronger than the genuine parameters. This makes the experience behind the wheel of “super horse” will become more interesting and exciting. And yet, the car’s center of gravity is also significantly lower after the fork is lowered to provide better grip, especially when the car is operating at high speeds.
