Ferrari 488 GTB versus 458 Speciale

Ferrari 488 GTB came to replace 458 Italia, and before the trend gets faded away, we decided to make an interactive comparison of these two mid-engine supercars.

You can call 488 a restyling, or an update over 458 as both cars share the same body, although the successor is slightly wider and longer than its predecessor. Interior has received a fresh makeover, and there's a difference in the powertrain as well; 488 GTB has a smaller displacement V8 engine, but thanks to twin-turbo technology produces more power than 458's naturally-aspired V8.

So why compare the standard 488 to top-of-the-line 458 Special? First of all both cars have the same 0-60 mph time of 3.0 seconds. And second, images are better aligned which gives a better opportunity to see design differences.
