It uses the technology of the 488 GT3 and GTE racing cars without the limitations of international racing series, so in fact, the Ferrari 488 GT Modificata, which Ferrari maintains for its most valuable customers, is more brutal than anything else. The power of the V8 turbocharged engine has been increased to the order of 700 hp, the transmission ratios have been modified and a carbon fiber clutch has been installed.
The 488 GT Modificata, refined at the Nürburgring, has been given a completely redesigned aerodynamic package that evokes more downforce at the front, while not increasing air resistance, making the car more sensitive to changes in rear wing angle. The body is made of carbon fiber composite with the exception of the aluminum roof structure (roof plate + roof columns). The total clamping force at 230 km / h exceeds one ton!
The brake system was developed in collaboration with Brembo, the ABS comes from this year’s 488 GT3 EVO. The car also received a telemetry data acquisition unit. And yet the 488 GT Modificata is not so much a racing car that it does not have a reversing camera, passenger seat or tire pressure monitoring system.
The car can only be ordered in the first round by those who have participated in the Ferrari club brand races in the previous few years. The 488 GT Modificata can also take part in Club Competizioni GT races without further ado: in 2021, for example, the race will take place on illustrious racetracks such as Virginia International Raceway, Monza, Watkins Glen, Suzuka and the Nürburgring.
