The turbo engine, a 3.9 litre, 670 hp V8, delivers the torque and power
you expect from this exceptional racing style car.
Evo like evolution. This is the spirit of the Ferrari 488 Challenge Evo, unveiled during the World Finals at Mugello in October 2019 and star of the 2020 racing season. The new mechanical and aerodynamic upgrade kit, also available for existing vehicles, promises even better overall performance and even greater driving pleasure.
In addition, there is a new air discharge below the rear spoiler to increase the aerodynamic load, embedded in the engine air intake grille. Finally, the new rear air strip produces an increase in the downforce ratio.
The change in the length of the front end, with an increased overhang of the bumper’s side air intakes, made it possible to achieve the aim of increasing the overall aerodynamic load and optimising the balance. In addition, Finally, a second side flick has been inserted on the re-proportioned sides, to improve the quality of the air flow. The result is that the car's total vertical aerodynamic load is increased by 50% compared to the 488 Challenge.
The Evo kit incorporates additional aerodynamic solutions on the side and rear. Beneath the rear-view mirror there is a distinctive flap designed to divert the flow towards the intercooler. At the rear, there is a clear reference to the FXX-K.
The proven synergy between the technical department and the Ferrari Style Centre has resulted in a thorough
overhaul of the car, especially at the front, with a 30% increase in efficiency
compared to the 488 Challenge.
The introduction of a third “U” shaped manifold in a central position
contributes to the unique identity and character of the 488 Challenge Evo. The
perfect blend of performance and design can be seen in the splitter inserted in
the lower part of the bumper which is designed to better manage and control the
air flowing from the side vents with two fins at the end.
