The endurance racing version of the 488 GTB, the GTE was built to compete in the FIA World Endurance Championship, the European Le Mans Series and the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. Built by Ferrari’s in-house Competizioni GT unit, the car debuted at the 2016 24 Hours of Daytona with the Scuderia Corsa, Risi Competizione and SMP Racing teams. It was an impressive debut, and the Scuderia Corsa entrant finished only a lap behind the class winning Corvette. The GTE has had strong success since, winning the 2016 and 2017 World Endurance Cup for GT Manufacturers and the 2017 Endurance Trophy for LMGTE Pro Teams in the World Endurance Championship, as well as the 2017 LMGTE Teams Championship in the European Le Mans Series.
Replacing the 458 GT2, the GTE is powered by the 488’s twin-turbocharged 3.9-litre V8, producing around 600hp, less than the road car thanks to power restrictions in its race category. However, a 230kg weight saving ensured any straight-line speed lost would be minimal.
This fine 1:8 scale model of the Ferrari 488 GTE has been handcrafted and finished in our workshops with the co-operation and assistance of Ferrari regarding original finishes, materials, archive imagery and drawings. The use of supremely accurate digital scanning of the original car has allowed us to perfectly recreate every detail at scale. Furthermore, it has undergone detailed scrutiny by both engineering and design teams to ensure complete accuracy of representation.
In addition to standard models we offer a unique tailor-made service for drivers, teams and sponsors of GT3 and GTE cars, perfectly replicating every detail of your car and its livery. We will create for you a superbly and deeply detailed model replicating every aspect of your car’s specification, enhancing the already stunning features of the limited edition model, finishing with the precise colour of the paint and the interior finishes, down to the smallest details. Our close relationship with Ferrari allows us to access paint and other key options and specification data so that we can match everything to the exact specification of your car. We will in short create a model for you that is a perfect representation of the precious original in every detail.
