Ferrari 488GTB Reaches 341 Km/h (211 Mph) On Public Roads

It’s one thing for a car to be fast on a circuit and another to be fast in the real world. The brand-new Ferrari 488 GTB seems to make no difference, though.

An abundance of drive-tests available on the internet told us what we already knew and kind of expected; the Ferrari 488 GTB is blistering quick. Not only that, but it’s amazingly good, as well.

But what these tests didn’t really conclude is how fast it is to something we can relate to. Sure, some used a plethora of words to describe the acceleration, or the sensation the car provided during testing, but it wasn’t a straightforward answer to which we could grab on to. Sure, Ferrari officially stated that the car can reach a top speed in excess of 330km/h, but they might have deliberately underestimate it a little.

So, how fast is Ferrari’s entry-level, mid-engine car? As we all know, a picture is worth a 1,000 words, but what’s a video worth?

Watching this guy hit 341km/h (211 Mph) on a busy part of the autobahn demonstrates that he has some nerves of steel and that the Ferrari is one hell of a performer. And if you think about it, the top speed isn’t that impressive as the acceleration.

Still, keep in mind that an Enzo tops out at 355 km/h (220 Mph) according to Ferrari, so, bravo 488 GTB!
