First Look at Ferrari’s 488 GT Modificata All-New Sports Car


The 2021 Ferrari 488 GT Modificata is a track-only version of the 488 GTB. A limited-edition model dedicated to customers who like to drive Ferraris on the race track, the 488 GT Modificata features technology developed for the competition-spec 488 GT3 and 488 GTE cars.



Ferrari equipped the racer with a 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8. The race-spec transmission has a carbon-fibre clutch, and the suspension of the 488 GTE was recruited for the Modificata. The gearbox has shorter gearing, but Ferrari promises that it is just as reliable as the gearbox in the GT3. Ferrari also boosted the aerodynamics of the Modificata, bumping up the downforce to 2,200 pounds at 143 miles per hour.


The Modificata’s wheel arches have been beefed up and the windows made more lightweight, and Ferrari also sculpted the side skirts and included large vents in the rear fenders. Only the roof of the car is made of aluminium while the rest of the body is made of carbon fibre. Inside, the Modificata is completely decked out as a racer, with a race-spec steering wheel, a roll cage, FIA-spec racing seats, and all the gear you need, starting at $400,000 USD base price.
