The racing versions of the 488 GTB are the successors to the 458 Italia GTC and GT3. They have a more aggressive bodywork compared to the GTE and GT3 specs of the 458 Italia thanks to the new 2016 FIA GTE and GT3 regulations, while their engine is the same 3.9 litre V8 turbo used for the 488 GTB.
In 2016 the 488 GTE will be entered by AF Corse in the FIA World Endurance Championship, competing also in the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans, while Risi Competizione will line up it in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. Both the 488 GTB and GT3 were unveiled at the 2015 Finali Mondiali Ferrari which took place at Mugello.
