Ferrari 488 GTB Goes Head To Head With The 458 Speciale

It’s the age-old question: Naturally aspirated, or the turbocharged? Enthusiasts usually prefer one over the other when it comes to performance, and whether it be for the instant throttle response of the free-breathing motor or the outright power that results from forced induction.

When it comes to Ferraris, you can’t go wrong either way, and in this track battle between a 488 GTB and the 458 Speciale, one is definitely quicker.

EVO put together another one of its manufacturer head-to-head videos and featuring two of Ferrari’s most recent mid-engine offerings.

The 458 Speciale is the limited-run, track-ready version of the brand’s already great 458 Italia, coming equipped with the 4.5-liter naturally aspirated V8 with the 9000-rpm redline.

The 488 GTB is simply an evolution of the 458, albeit with one major change: the turbocharged motor. It doesn’t rev as high, but the 3.9-liter V8 makes 660-hp and 560 lb-ft of torque, 162 more lb-ft than the Speciale.

That’s forced induction for you. Unsurprisingly, the Ferrari 488 is able to hustle around the UK’s Anglesey circuit faster than its naturally aspirated sibling thanks to all of that extra shove.

But don’t discount the Speciale, it is still one of the greatest driver’s cars we’ll ever see. Watch for yourself as EVO pits these two mid-engine super vehicles against each other on track.
