Ferrari 488 GTB Scale Model Is a Twin-Turbo Mini-Me

If you happen to be among those who are waiting for the first Ferrari 488 GTB deliveries at a personal level, you’ll probably going to look at the photos below with different eyes. On the other hand, should you happen to belong to us mortals who, for various reasons, have not ordered the Prancing Horse’s twin-turbo 458, we may have something for you.

We’re talking about the first 488 GTB scale model. This comes from MR Collection and is offered in a 1:18 scale so that your desk can serve as the perfect garage. Just like the 1:1 scale version they build over in Maranello, the car hasn’t reached its first owners yet, but will do so “soon”.

Regardless, you’ll be able to choose between a palette of colors that use the right names. The list obviously starts with Rosso Corsa (we’re not translating this one), while also including Grigio Ferro (Grey) , Giallo Tristrato (Yellow), Bianco Fuji (White), Rosso Scuderia (Red) and Vinaccia (ever spilled fresh wine?). Then again, it’s not everyday that you get to see an unpainted 488.

And while everybody is waiting for the GTB to be unleashed onto the streets, Ferrari is already preparing the next step of the 488 adventure, namely the open-air version of the supercar.

The 458 Spider has proved it can perform just as well as the Coupe, so expect no less of the upcoming model. And yes, we’re deliberately avoiding the nomenclature here since we’re not sure whether the machine will be called 488 Spider or 488 GTS.
