It was just a matter of time until the Italian based supercar maker Ferrari would plan the introduction of a racing version of the Ferrari 488 GTB. And recently, a test mule with the so called Ferrari GTE has been spied in a premiere while performing some tests on the Vallelunga tracks, in Italy.
The test mule with the Ferrari GTE racer was put under heavy testing, with Gianmaria Bruni and Davide Rigon behind the steering wheel, before its official unveiling, somewhere at the end of next year.
As we can depict from the spy shots, the Ferrari 488 GTE will sport with a more aggressive and track-oriented body style, adding more aerodynamic features, such as new front bumper, wide fenders and air intakes at the rear end, huge rear wing for a better air flow and a few more.
Under the hood, the Ferrari 488 GTB is likely to share the engine with its 488 GTB sibling, meaning the same 3.9-liter V8 twin-turbo engine.
But we will definitely see a significant power increase, as opposed to the stock 661 horsepower and 760 Nm of torque, which in the 488 GTB is capable of reaching 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.0 seconds, at a topping of 330 km/h.
