Ready for the 2020 international GT championships is the new Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo, a refinement of one of the most successful cars in the marque’s history. During development of this Evo package, Ferrari focused on improving aerodynamics, vehicle dynamics, ergonomics, safety and reliability of the 488 GT3. This has been achieved through the use of new techniques and feedback from teams around the world competing with the 488 GT3.

Front of the car has received a new front section designed from over 18,000 hours of calculations, CFD simulations and wind tunnel testing to provide a big aero improvement. Other areas have seen advances as well, with the rear wing vents and intakes being completely redesigned. On the vehicle dynamics front, the wheelbase has been lengthened to match the 488 GTE, helping to improve tyre life and wear whilst also making the conversion from GT3 to GTE easier. Cars overall weight has been reduced providing a lower center of gravity and allowing more ballast to be used in optimal locations.

Endurance racing has evolved to the extent that it is increasingly resembling extended sprint racing. This demands meticulous attention to detail, including in the cockpit.  488 GT3 Evo 2020 debuts a new seat which meets the new FIA safety regulations. Developed jointly with Sabelt for both the GT3 and GTE, it is not only more rigid and robust but is also 2.4 kg lighter with new belts and a new buckle.
