The beloved Ferrari 458 Italia is no more after this year, but fret not fellow prancing horse fans, the brand already has an entry-level replacement on the way. And we use the words “entry-level” loosely here. Meet the 2016 Ferrari 488 GTB.

The latest 2-door from the stable is packed with a turbocharged mid-engine V8 (the first since the F40), and pumps out a monstrous 660 horsepower and 560 lb-ft of torque. This setup gets the stallion from zero to sixty in just 3 seconds, to 125 mph in just over 8 seconds, and a top speed of 205 miles per hour. To ensure you’re really pushing your GTB to the limits, Ferrari has also improved their Side Slip Control 2 system allowing for more improved cornering and precision handling. The exterior aerodynamics have also been revamped, including a double front spoiler, a 308-inspired intake scallop, and vortex generators running along the underbody. The supercar will make its official debut this coming March at the Geneva auto show.
