Posted on the net by Ferrariphotopage, the internal slides showed that its engine will be based on the 488 Challenge race car and will have at least 700bhp. It is said that the jump in horsepower from the base car will be the highest for a special Ferrari V8 model. The engine will also be 10 percent lighter than the one in the 488 GTB.
Other than that, there will be a 20 percent increase in aerodynamic efficiency as compared to the regular mode.
A set of new carbon fiber wheels will be around 40 percent lighter than the standard car's wheels too.
Elswhere, an 'extremely direct steering ratio and a new Race gearshift program coupled with a revised Sideslip Managment System will allow the car to clock faster lap times.
It is still unknown what this hardcore version of the 488 GTB will be called.
