Ferrari has released a video in which Gordon Ramsay is having fun in Maranello and checking out the new 488 GTB. Famous British chef Gordon Ramsay is a well-known petrol head and he visited Ferrari at Maranello recently. The clip posted below is showing him taking a spin in the brand new Ferrari 488 GTB and this probably means that he will soon add one to his garage. Keep in mind that buying the new supercar hasn’t been confirmed yet but we can see him with a big smile on his face after taking a spin in the exotic vehicle. Ferrari is offering the 488 GTB as an official successor to the 458 Italia. The supercar has debuted earlier this year and it has been followed by the roadster version as well, the 488 Spider. This is maintaining the rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive and it has an updated exterior design and a tweaked cabin. The 488 is not entirely new and it can be called more of a significant facelift of the old 458. The most important upgrade is found under its hood where Ferrari has dropped the old 4.5 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine in favor of the new 3.9 liter twin turbo V8. The unit is producing a total of 661 HP (493 kW) at 8,000 rpm and 760 Nm (561 lb-ft) of torque, available at 3,000 rpm. Power is being sent to the RWD through an automatic double clutch 7-speed gearbox.
