The new Ferrari 488 GTB breaks a lot of rules for Maranello: it introduces turbocharging to the junior V8 supercar for the first time; it pushes power on the entry-level car past 650bhp; and this introductory sports car now demolishes 0-60mph in just three seconds dead.

So it has muscle aplenty, but does it include charisma on the spec sheet as standard? Watch CAR magazine’s video road test here to find out, as our editor-at-large Ben Barry thrashes the new 488 GTB on road and track around the company’s Modenese headquarters.

He delivers the verdict on the supercar that fills the 458 Italia’s rather sizable footwear. And don’t miss our full written verdict here, in our comprehensive Ferrari 488 GTB review.
