Ferrari 488 GTB Gets Power Boosted to 1000PS With Tuning From xXx Performance

| | Comments

xXx Performance has a new tuning kit for the Ferrari 488 GTB, one that has 1,000PS on power on tap.

Tuning specialist xXx Performance has lent their magic on the Ferrari 488 GTB that has endowed the already acclaimed sports car with range topping levels of sportiness.

To begin with, the stage 1 kit from xXx Performance ensures the stock 3.9-liter twin turbocharged V8 pumps out no less than 750 PS of power and 830 Nm of torque.

That is not all for there is a stage 2 kit as well which sees the power getting bumped to 850 PS and 930 Nm of torque. Saving the best for the last, the stage 3 kit sees the power getting enhanced all the way up to 1,000 PS and 1,250Nm of torque.

The above mentioned figures mark a significant improvement over the 670 PS and 760 Nm of torque that the engine develops in its normal state.

No performance details have been revealed though, which comes as a disappointment in view of the lofty upgrade that the engine has been provided with. For reference, the standard 488 GTB is capable of doing the 0-62mph sprint in 3 seconds while the top whack is an electronically limited 205mph.

The huge power boost has been achieved by the introduction of a new sports exhaust system, custom intakes along with remapping of the ECU. The tuners have also ensured the power upgrade is complemented with suitable exhaust notes as well. Towards this, the new exhaust system comes with controllable flaps while incorporating bigger downpipes for lower back pressure which ensures just the right soundtrack befitting a machine exuding so much power.

Among the other changes that have been meted out to the 488 GTB include lowering of the ride height by 35mm brought about by the use of new springs though there is also a hydraulic lift system that can increase the ride height automatically when needed.

Other changes include the fitment of side skirts, rear diffuser and carbon fiber front spoiler. Vents have been added next to the taillights while the side indicator lights, taillights, and the rear fog light have all been provided with black tint.
