WEATHERTECH RACING CAR

Peak performance, precision handling, and italian design.

Ferrari 488 GT3

Exterior

Ferrari, and captive tuner Michelotto Automobili, developed the track version of the car in concert with the designers and engineers for the street car. The 488 race car “is based on a road car that already incorporated track-friendly solutions as standard,” claims Ferrari. The exterior features an extensive aerodynamics system including shorter and more narrow air intakes, carbon-fiber splitter, and side-mounted carbon fiber canards.  A completely reshaped front hood includes additional air vents while the rear of the vehicle is equipped with a sleek rear wing designed to decrease wind resistance. Downforce is provided by a large front splitter and a equally large rear deck-lid spoiler. The carbon fiber body wraps a carbon and aluminum subframe that maximizes the Ferrari's mid-engine design for strength and aerodynamic efficiency.

Performance

Under the rear decklid of the WeatherTech Racing Ferrari is a powerhouse twin-turbo 3.9-liter twin-turbo Ferrari V8 engine capable of producing 661 hp at 8,000 rpm generating 560 pound-feet of torque (IMSA mandates approximately 500 hp). This force fed turbocharged engine is specifically designed with a seven-speed transverse gearbox for an advantageous distribution of weight. Stopping power is provided by Brembo 6-piston brake calipers on the front and 4-piston calipers on the rear.

Interior

The interior of the WeatherTech Ferrari 488 GT3 is all business. The driver cabin is re-designed and modified with optimal performance and efficiency in mind. Protected by a racing grade roll cage, the driver controls the 488 GT3 with what is ostensibly a super-computer in their hands. The Alcantara-wrapped, multi-function steering wheel allows the driver to adjust the traction control, ABS brakes, talk to the crew and even get a drink. A newly designed center stack and digital display provides key performance data points as the driver sits in a race spec bucket seat clamped in by a six-point harness. The rear-view camera screen provides the driver with a look at on-coming cars.
