Making the super car a little less tamed.
With so many super cars going the forced induction route, it was only a matter of time before Ferrari began to follow the trend. Their new 488 GTB is a phenomenal driver’s car but is a bit tame when it comes to the raw sound that you’d expect from an exotic. Well, WheelsandMore is here to help with their Settecento-Trenta 488 GTB upgrade program.
Visually, the team at WheelsandMore did what they do best, and installed a set of their ultralight forged F.I.W.E. wheels on the Italian beast. The three-piece wheels feature a deep concave center with a center-lock-designed cap for a more motorsports-oriented look. On the Ferrari 488 GTB Settecento-Trenta, the new matte black wheels with colored stripe measure 9.0 x 21 up front and a wide 12.5 x 21 at the rear, shod in 245/30/21 and 345/25/21 Hankook high-performance tires. This gives the sleek super car a more athletic and aggressive look compared to the stock wheel setup.
Sitting behind the driver is a tuned version of the 3.9-liter, twin-turbocharged V-8 engine. WheelsandMore was able to take advantage of the potential hidden in the engine with new ECU software, an F1 air filter kit, and new exhaust system. The latter features a valve-control system and reduces backpressure while addressing the biggest complaint of the factory model – its lack of vocal presence. At the touch of a button, drivers can let the V-8 roar with its thundering horses.
After the upgrades, the WheelsandMore Ferrari 488 GTB Settecento-Trenta produces an overwhelming 730 horsepower and 627 lb-ft. of torque. That’s enough to give the F12Berlinetta quite a bit of competition.
As of now, the upgrades featured on the Ferrari 488 GTB Settecento-Trenta are all available from WheelsandMore. The team is also currently developing a new exhaust manifold kit for even more performance.
