New Ferrari 488 engine note

New Ferrari 488 engine note

by May 5, 2015

The big question surrounding Ferrari’s move to turbocharging is not whether the cars will be fast enough, that’s a given, but whether they’ll sound any good.

Following our first drive of the California T, the jury was still out; it sounds pretty good, without being amazing.

However, its GT personality means it doesn’t necessarily need a spine-tingling soundtrack; the new 488 GTB, though, definitely does.

As the replacement for the amazing 458, the bar is set very high, but this amateur video, taken outside the Ferrari factory in Maranello.

Unfortunately, at no point to the lucky test drivers really give it the beans, but on first impressions the trademark Ferrari blare is still present.

Let us know what you think!
