What is it? Depending on your outlook and financial status, it’s either the latest mid-engined wonder by Ferrari, crammed full of tech and astoundingly powerful. Or it’s another special series Ferrari to lock away with your other unused special Ferraris and tell people about on an Internet forum. Anyone who buys this car to not use and instead flips it for financial gain is, to coin an ancient Somerset phrase, ‘a total bellend’. 711bhp, really? Yep, the 700bhp+ club just gained another member. The 360 Challenge Stradale, the first of these special V8 engined Ferraris had 420bhp, and it wasn’t slow. This car has 711bhp, the small matter of 568lb ft of torque, and will hit 125mph from rest in 7.6sec. It will destroy a McLaren F1 to 170mph. The regular 488 GTB was already incontinence-fast, but at times emotionally unrewarding - so what matters here is what has been done to make the whole thing more exciting.
