alternative to circuit most radical Ferrari has already been presented: the 488 Track. A variant lighter and more powerful of the 488 GTB, which is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in only 2,85 seconds, and whose goal is to stand up to the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, which broke the record at the Nürburgring.

As you can see in the pictures, the Ferrari 488 Track account with a few aggressive touch-aerodynamic, among which include the flow splitter front, the huge diffuser double, positioned under the exhaust pipes and air intakes larger to improve the cooling of the engine.

What makes the 488 Track

With this version, the 488 happens to be the vehicle of Ferrari more radical within their cars driven to the circuit.

And on the other, the already mentioned modifications in the body, centered in to maximize the downforce. A factor equally or more important than brute force when it comes to lowering the time on the track.

488 normal to get an aerodynamic load of 325 kg at 250 km/h. A very good figure, but that is overcome by the 340 kg which records the 911 GT2 RS. The specialists in aerodynamics of Ferrari, who have access to the wind tunnel of its Formula 1 team, have managed to improve this feature of his racing car in a 20%, which means a load of 390 kg

The work on the aerodynamics of the 488 Track is supported by the decrease of its weight, which is now 1,280 kg (90 less than a 488 GTB). Contributing to this are the 20-inch wheels made with carbon fiber, saving a 40% in weight compared to the alloy, and other elements of the same material of the body and the interior: the hood, the bumpers, the rear wing, several large sections of the interior, and the dashboard.
