The Ferrari 458 is the marque’s first turbo-assisted mid-engined car since the seminal F40. It marks a change of direction in terms of its bodywork specifically; creating a staggering fifty percent increase in speed-generated downforce. Ferrari also claims quicker gear changes and a more sophisticated adaptive suspension. The engine is a very different beast too, being a smaller-than-usual 3.9 litre twin-turbocharged flat plane crank V8, which manages to be both more efficient and more effective with its 661 brake horsepower. It follows the lineage of the Ferrari F154 engine family. The car’s moniker is actually based on its engine performance, producing 488cc per cylinder. The 488 GTB is driven by a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission made for Ferrari by Getrag. It was named ‘The Supercar of the Year 2015’ by renowned car magazine, Top Gear.
This fine 1:8 scale model of the Ferrari 488 GTB has been handcrafted and finished in our workshops using detailed colour and material specifications, and original CAD data supplied directly from the drawing office of Ferrari. Furthermore, it has undergone detailed scrutiny by both engineering and design teams to ensure complete accuracy of representation.
Every Amalgam 1:8 scale model is supplied in a luxury black presentation box and mounted on a carbon fibre or leather base protected by a clear acrylic dust cover. The model title, original branding and edition number are displayed on polished stainless steel plaques mounted at the front end of the base.
