Ferrari 488 GTB Turns Stormtrooper in Oddball Star Wars Rendering

Being well aware of all the insane challenges the world wide web could subject the 488 GTB to, we imagine Ferrari engineers and designers tried to prepare the twin-turbo machine for tons of scenarios when developing the car. However, we're pretty sure the Maranello people weren't prepared for the 488 to become a... Stormtrooper.

No really, we don't expect the designers of the mid-engined Fezza to have prepared the lines of the supercar for a "conversion" such as the one we have here.

Regardless, the Imperial Army coat sees to suit the 488 rather well, with the machine blending in perfectly in the All Terrain Armored Transport-dominated environment.

The pixel manipulation we have here was released by digital artist Jonsibal - we've featured his work on multiple occasions, with the best word to describe his renderings being immersive.

Star Wars comments aside, this seems to fit the supercar winter trend we've been discussing all week.

We're talking about the idea of not locking your supercar inside the garage now that snow and ice are upon us. After all, engineers testing supercars don't stop for the winter, as the latest Lamborghini spyshots have shown us.

The Raging Bull is currently testing the Huracan Superleggera and the type of bodykit used by the Sant'Agata Bolognese supercar seems perfect for sculpting in snow.

Of couse, since the 488 mixes rear-wheel-drive with a (somewhat) non-linear twin-turbo torque curve, it could prove extremely difficult to drive on slippery roads. Note that, since we're not dealing with the all-wheel-drive GTC4Lusso, you won't find a snow setting on the Manettino dial.

We're not here to encourage anybody to go for snow chains, as the now-Internet-famous F40 owner in Japan did. Instead, we're inviting you to at least go for one winter drive and see what things feel like inside a supercar when the scenery is white.
