The car won the Middle East Car of the Year award in the superstar category. Continuing the company’s tradition of producing supercars like the iconic first-ever mid-rear-engined V8 berlinetta, the 308 GTB, the 488 GTB has set a new benchmark when it comes to powerful sports cars and proved to be a true winner at the most prestigious automotive awards ceremony in the region.
General Manager of Ferrari Middle East and Africa, Giulio Zauner, expressed his delight at the overwhelming reception Ferrari’s new model received.
He said, “Ferrari’s approach to bespoke automotive design is key for the region: with each new model, we push the limits of technological innovation in every engineering area and it is this uncompromising approach to sports car development which is at the heart of Ferrari’s appeal.”
The 488 GTB raced to the top of its class with its outstanding power output (670 cv) and significantly lower engine and command response times of just 0.8 and 0.06 seconds respectively.
