    Screenshot_ferrari_488_gtb_imola_14-5-116-19-46-38.jpg The 488 gtb and 'a lot more' fast car than its predecessor the 458 italia.In a recent track test and 'proved more' fast of no less than 5 seconds per lap setting the record of the Vairano track. The physics of this car and 'very accurate and very close to reality' even the traction control and 'was developed for use on the track, without changing the quality' of the pilot. Good fun .

    Good mod and fun to drive. Reason of 4/5 is because there is an update each day. Take your time, optimize it, then release it :)

    Why can't we see the car in 3DSimed?Not really fine to make skins...Why is it slower on track than the 458 S3 with a lot of understeer .Not sure it is a mid-mounted engine specs.
    Great work on the 3D model and the interior.

      I have only dealt with the physical for this car.
      However for me this and 'my first experience on a road car, usually I do the physical to the cars of F1

    My paddles on my Fanatec CSW did not work with latest update v1.2. Only my shifter to switch gear manually works. What´s wrong for me? Paddles work with v1.1

    I think car is good, physics and grip. Thanks for that car man.

    But i wish you will polish the 3d interior a little bit... there are a lot of edges in round objects.

    And you can do some work with the driver. I always see parts of the driver model when in cockpit view. I already did the seat forward, but still when breaking. Please fix it.

    Keep up the great work! I like your work very much.

    Very well done. Some people seem unsure about the amount of grip and downforce - well, 488 was designed to have about 50 per cent more downforce than 458. So I would say that the mod is pretty accurate in this regard.

    Excellent car with amazing ext/int look. Could be a Kunos car.

    But as said before in other comments, the handling is a little bit weird :
    I don't feel the track surface
    Very floating feeling
    Handling is too fast. It looks like a tuned car or a race car
    It understeer too much compared to the F458
    Too much grip at the same time (maybe add a kind of "trofeo road tyres".)
    The sound is not agressive enough compared to the real one

    Keep one working on the physics (design is perfect !) and this car will be a five stars

    Thank you for your amazing job

      respect your opinion, but the car has a perfect physical and perhaps 'appearance that is not' good has several flaws. Many of you are based on the 458 that Italy and 'a completely different car born 6 years ago ... I personally have driven in real life is the 458 Italy and then the 488gtb and I can assure you that they are not even comparable because' 488gtb and 'significantly more' fast more 'stable and more' easy to take to the limit.

    Wow, if the physics are really accurate, then it's not my type of car. For some reason, I dislike all of the very recent cars cos I notice I don't "feel" the car at all.
    The 458 might have been my last favorite car.
    I loved cars until the mid-2000s but now...
    It has this floating feeling, maybe cos nowadays, cars are so full of technology, you can't even feel the road anymore. (;_;)
    Maybe I'm just a nostalgic classic car lover.

    The car itself looks great, Kunos standards. :)

    Sound is completely different from the real 488 though, which has a much more agressive sound.

    Edit : I did a few laps around Monza and made a comparison with a video I saw on Youtube.
    I agree with people that at the moment, it feels like a tuned supercar, with too much grip.
    The videos I saw showed that it was slower too.

    Anyway, I'm a Ferrari fan and it's a keeper! :)

      Thanks for your appreciation of the car does not sound right to momento.Io I did physics and a few other things on this car. Now I do not know where you have seen the video of fast laps Monza with 488gtb 'cause there are not ..... what you have seen you have the spins of ordinary people and not professional drivers. If you want to see the 488 pushed to the limit by a professional pilot faces this link and then you'll see what can really make this car !!!

    How do I describe this? It doesn't put down power in a Ferrari way. Also, why is this car manual? And yes, seems very grippy. Please make the dash cam like it is for official cars because that view is really immersive if done right.
    Really good base but needs more work.

    Good job.
    But 7H gear, with shifter Fanatec, it's very difficult.
    And some shifters have not 7th gear.

    May be you can made a S1 version for paddles...

    Thanks

    it's quite solid car, but I think there's still room for improvements

    for driving view, the things that are in your immediate view ( dials+steering wheel) could use a little more triangles,

    also for physics - although I never drove real one - it feels to me that the car has too much grip, changes direction too fast, no sense of understeer as the F458

    I know this one is better and improved, but it drives like very advanced racecar, rather then improved road version

    i haven't messed around with setup or tire selection, so pardon my review if it came on slicks , rather then road tires
    but even then, I wouldn't expect it to have grip/front bite as DTM car

    Beautifully done, lots of fun to drive. Is this thing really as fast as this? I put in a 1:58 at Monza on just my third lap in the car. She has about the amount of grip I'd expect for semi-slicks and only the body aero for downforce, but the power is staggering...giving me 170+ mph down the main straight. Tons of fun to drive, though. Grazie mille!
