A steel roll-bar structure has been integrated into the chassis to ensure maximum safety for the driver, and to meet the high safety standards imposed by the FIA. Meanwhile, the front and rear impact structures have bene designed with a view to maximising energy absorption.
Thousands of CFD simulations and numerous sessions in the wind tunnel serve to ensure that the car complies with the GT3 technical regulations, and allow the aerodynamic load and efficiency levels required by the category to be achieved. The solutions derived from this include the closed flat bottom of the car, the introduction of a front splitter with side flaps, a rear diffuser and the rear wing.
The ease of adjustment results in a perfect match between the aerodynamic setup and the requirements of any type of track, improving the performance of the tyres both in terms of wear and degradation.
Despite the fact that it retains the same set-up as the road car from which it is derived, the design of the suspension system has been overhauled and developed in terms of its kinematics and structure, especially for the 488 GT3. The front, the adjustable rear anti-roll bar and the shock absorbers are easily accessible, for rapid race configuration of the car.
