2015 Ferrari 488 GTB now raceable in Forza6


    Today marks the release of another car pack (read DLC) for Forza Motorsport 6. Despite having the largest car lineup in gaming, the developers aren’t standing still, adding another seven cars in the Meguiar’s Car Pack. The stand out by far is the gorgeous Ferrari 488 GTB that is definitely a fan favourite and has been getting plenty of requests on the forums.

    2015 Ferrari 488 GTB

    Ferrari’s 488 GTB is meant to replace the now-legendary 458, and it wears its predecessor’s unmistakable form like a badge of honor. This time around, however, the sleek body generates 50 percent more downforce and significantly reduces aerodynamic drag. The new front double-splitter directs air to the radiator and the scalloped side intakes, while paying homage to the 308 GTB, also move air to the turbos. Yes, this Ferrari has a pair of twin-scroll, ball-bearing turbos with twin-intercoolers. The 3.9L motor is a V8 displacing 488ccs per cylinder, hence the 488 moniker. It produces a different sound than you may be used to hearing from previous prancing horses, but it is nonetheless a wonderful and exorbitant noise that propels the 488 more efficiently than its predecessor. Borrowing technology put to use in LaFerrari, the carbon-fiber brakes stop the 488 nearly 10 percent faster than the 458 as well. Times may change, technology may progress, but one thing never changes – the feeling of driving a Ferrari. That is timeless.

    If you’re a superfan of the game and have the Car Pass, this is the 6th and final car pack you get included in that discounted price.
