Ferrari in GT

I couldn't find a Ferrari thread, so sorry if I missed it.

New Ferrari F8 Tributo announced as replacement for 488. It seems like the 488 has only been on track for a couple of years but I guess this will be replacing it soon.

The 488 GTE and GT3 debuted in early 2016. I would estimate the F8 Tributo would be launched in 2020.

There will be 7 Ferraris in the 2019 Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup.


The only Pro Cup entry is the #72 SMP.

Autosport web is reporting Ferrari 488 GTE's throttle off indicator system.
Ferrari 488 GTE has a throttle off indicator system to help good fuel consumption drive.
For example, when approaching 300 m before the Mulsanne corner, this display lights up and orders the driver to lift and coast.

Ferrari 488GTE's winker switch has an another function.
If you push winker switch, it will become "anti lock" mode.
This is officially a brake balance adjustment function, but acts substantially as a "prohibited" ABS.
It can control the engine and prevent brake lock.

And Ferrari 488GTE equips with a sensor that detects cars coming from behind.
It is an LED light on the left and right of tachometer, and it can know whether it is overtaking from right or left.
It turns green, yellow and red as the car approaches.

Interesting information. The fuel economy on the 488GTE was sadly bop'd away but it definitely is very 'lean'.

The 488 GTE will more likely received a second Evo homologation than launching a successor.

quite reasonable since GTE class is reaching a stagnation status... a further heavy investment would be worthless. But also because there isn't a suitable successor since SF90 stradale is closer to an hypercar
