Having seen the 488 GTB in the flesh at the Geneva Motor Show this year, I was impressed.

It is better looking than the 458 it replaced.

Now to its party trick……….

With the quick retractable roof, you will be able to hear that “Ferrari symphony” even quicker and clearer.  I’m sure it will be thrilling to drive or own.  It’s a Ferrari after all.
