Ferrari’s 488 GT Modificata Is A 700HP Supercar Built For Track Racing

While 2020 has most of the world on hold, the minds at Maranello show no signs of slowing. Even during this most unusual year, Ferrari has been unveiling new cars with barely enough time for us to catch our breath between debuts. Having recently added a drop-top SF90 Stradale to its catalog, the prancing horse makes the news again, this time with an utterly unhinged track car.

Billed as “a perfect synthesis” between the 488 GTE and 488 GT3, Ferrari is calling it the 488 GT Modificata. However, it’s much more than a derivative — with no FIA regulations in play, it’s essentially an exercise in all-out supercar performance. For instance, under the hood hides a twin-turbo V8 that’s been bumped from 550hp to 700hp. In order to manage the increases in power, the car has been fitted with a new carbon fiber clutch and a different transmission ratio. What’s more, Ferrari has completely overhauled the aerodynamics, resulting in over 1,000kg (2,200lb) of downforce at 143mph. Wrapped in a carbon fiber body borrowed from the GTE, it also comes with specially-tuned suspension and braking setups. Initially available to Competizioni GT and Club Competizioni GT drivers, it’ll eventually see a limited production run.
