First look at Ferrari 488 Challenge

10 January 2017

With this year seeing the launch of the new Ferrari 488 Challenge for the European Series, Silverstone-based FF Corse is displaying a 570 hp Ferrari 458 Challenge, similar to the car that won the European Ferrari Challenge Championship and World Final in 2016 with Sam Smeeth behind the wheel, at this week’s Autosport International. The car is ideal for drivers who are looking to make the step into purchasing their own or those just starting out. FF Corse is using the show as a platform to connect with new customers on availability and costs of the new cars. Full details about the 488 Challenge are available direct from the FF Corse team across all four days of the show.

While visiting the stand, visitors will also have the opportunity to take a close look at the current 488 3.9 litre V8 GT3 car that features a more aggressive aerodynamic package compared with its predecessor, the 458 Italia GT3 due to the updated 2016 FIA GTE and GT3 regulations.

The 2017 show takes place from the 12th-15th January at the Birmingham NEC. Tickets for the event, which covers every aspect of motorsport from karting to Formula 1 and also engineering, are on sale now and can be purchased from
