Ferrari, the Italian Supercar manufacturer likes to keep themselves in the news, be it by launching some limited edition models or facelifts every now-and-then. Recently Ferrari created a lot of stir in the markets after they announced replacing the 458 Italia with the new 488 GTB. This is the their first car after the announcement of their split with the parent company Fiat. And now Ferrari has shown the car in Flesh at the Geneva Motorshow, after the last month's online reveal.

While the Supercar may give an impression of facelift of 458 facelift due to familiar design, a closer look reveals more details. The 488 GTB comes with a big air intake upfront reminding us of the 308 GTB, albeit divided into two separate sections by a splitter. The front spoiler is much wider and the diffuser is all new with active flaps to boost downforce when combined with reworked rear spoiler. The interiors, now comes with a new satellite control cluster, refreshed infotainment system and new seats.

But it is the engine which is the talking point for the Ferarri. The new engine is a twin-turbo V8 3.9 litre mill churning out 670hp power and 760Nm torque. The engine pushes the 488 GTB from 0 to 100kmph in just 3.0 seconds, while the 0-200kmph is completed in 8.3 seconds. The Supercar is capable of reaching at a top speed of 330 km/h.

The power is transferred to the rear wheels via a reworked dual-clutch seven-speed gearbox that is helped by a variable torque management. The Ferrari 488 GTB sits at only 1,370 kg, which also helps the car to achieve such performance figures. Ferrari has said that the exhaust note will be "full, clear and totally distinctive" sound, thanks to a modified exhaust system.

The Ferrari 488 GTB will go on sale within a couple of months followed by a probable Spider version in the second half of the year.
