2018 Ferrari 488 Challenge
|Exterior Color||Bianco Avus|
|Transmission||7 Speed Dual Clutch|
Ferrari South Bay is excited to present this 2018 Ferrari 488 Challenge car finished in Bianco Avus. Driver and passenger seats are both in size large.
The Ferrari 488 Challenge is the latest car specifically built for the marque’s single-make series. It is based largely upon the road-going version of the 488, albeit sprinkled with upgrades and lightweight materials to make it suitable for sustained track use and racing. With every iteration, Ferrari has pushed the limits on what it considers to be a suitable package for the amateur driver, and with the 488 Challenge it has taken this mentality to the extreme, producing a car that is four seconds quicker than a LaFerrari around Fiorano, but suitable even for beginners to learn their race craft.
Beneath the polycarbonate engine cover lies the familiar 3.9-litre turbocharged V-8 from the 488 GTB, capable of 670 cv and a colossal 895 Nm of torque. For the Challenge, however, lightweight and strengthened components are introduced that together bring a 19.7 kg weight savings over the road car. Shorter gear ratios in the F1 DCT transmission are also used to give the car a more accelerative nature, and remapping to the on-board traction and stability systems (Slip Angle Control) has allowed Ferrari’s engineers to separate the manettino-controlled functions onto two switches, rather than one, to give drivers more control over the dynamic behaviour of the car.
Externally, a massive carbon-fibre rear wing from the 488 GTE dominates proceedings, with lower side skirts, a new bonnet, and a reprofiled nose section completing an aerodynamic package that creates 10% more downforce than its predecessor, the 458 Challenge Evo. Other details include lightweight plastic panels for the main windows and the removal of the quarter window to make way for a race-spec fuel cap.
Internally the car is unrecognisable from the road-legal version; gone are the standard centre console, seats, dashboard, door panels, carpets, and trims, all replaced by a fully stripped-out motorsport cabin with integrated roll bar, fire-extinguishing system, racing steering wheel, and fixed racing bucket seat.
Please note that the 488 Challenge is suitable only for use on private race tracks and that it is not road legal.
