Exciting berlinetta on display at Al Tayer Motors showroom in Dubai
Dubai, 13 August 2015 - Ferrari’s exciting mid-rear-engined V8 berlinetta, the 488 GTB, has arrived in the UAE and can be viewed at the Al Tayer Motors showroom in Dubai.
Visitors to the showroom will be able to see the car, which made its international debut at the Geneva International Motor Show earlier in March. The new Ferrari 488 GTB not only delivers unparalleled performance but extreme power, exploitable and controllable to an unprecedented level.
The 488 in the car’s moniker indicates the engine’s unitary displacement, while the GTB stands for Gran Turismo Berlinetta, a reference to Ferrari’s heritage.
Designed by the Ferrari Style Centre, the 488 GTB’s sculptural forms are completely new. They accentuate the car’s sportiness yet retain the classically clean, pure lines typical of Ferrari’s legendary styling. The seamless interweaving of form and function is clear in every detail. Certain design elements are also obvious nods to the past, not least the 308 GTB-inspired styling of the flanks.
An exceptional engine and sophisticated aerodynamics combined with refined vehicle dynamic controls radically improve the already razor-sharp responsiveness of Ferrari’s road cars to near-track level. Power (670 cv), engine and vehicle response times (0.8 s and 0.06 s respectively) give the Ferrari 488 GTB a unique character and guarantee unmatched driving pleasure to drivers of all abilities.
The 488 GTB is priced at AED 955,000 - before customisation. Ferrari’s unparalleled quality standards and increasing focus on client service underpin the extended seven-year maintenance programme offered with the Ferrari 488 GTB. Available across the entire Ferrari range, the programme covers all regular maintenance for the first seven years of the car’s life.
This scheduled maintenance programme for Ferraris is an exclusive service that allows clients the certainty that their car is kept at peak performance and safety over the years. This unique service is also available to owners of pre-owned Ferraris through Al Tayer Motors Ferrari showroom in Dubai.
