I think it sounds fantastic.
And our stock 488 spider already sounds wonderful even compared the the Italia and Speciale. Seriously.

If you haven't owned or driven the 488 spider, go check it out.

I actually like the sound of a stock 488 GTB. Its nothing compared to a 458 Speciale but still very unique to it. This 488 in the video thought doesn't do it for me.

So interesting....having had both, I prefer the 488 spider sound greatly.

I think it should be a rule that anyone who complains about the 488 sound please clarify whether you have driven one or actually seen one in person. Anyone who has experienced the total package has no issues with the sound or anything else about the car.

First time I heard one in person I was blown away. I couldn't believe how nice it sounded after everyone was so worked up. Then a little while later I heard a 458 Speciale and I was reminded of what a truly wonderful Ferrari sounds like.

Anyways, I love both. I hope the 488 GTO gets a MEAN V8 Twin Turbo sound like the 288 GTO did. Heres a link to one of the coolest Ferrari videos ever

Check out the difference between 911 RSR naturally aspirated VS vacuum cleaners.

In my humble opinion, the 488's exhaust note live is loud. Louder than I had anticipated until I was "face to face" with the car. Louder is good in my book. It sounds louder on the outside than on the inside. OK, you may say the same regarding any car, but I believe 488 owners agree with me on this. It actually sounds more muffled from the inside and on Youtube videos.

As far as exhaust notes from turbo engines go, the 488 is actually pretty good imho. The NA folk like myself will always prefer the 458 without question, but that isn't the 488's fault: if you go turbo, that's the nature of the beast. And for what it's worth, I prefer a muffled 488 in comparison with the glorious 458, than a 488 fitted with all sorts of fake and artificial engineering to make the exhaust note sound like something the car is not.

Kind regards,

Nuno.

That RSR sounds so good. A 458 GT3 sounds amazing in person too! 488 Challenge cars I saw in person just didn't do it for me from an auditory standpoint. They are damn fast though.

Agree with you here. These sound comparisons make no sense.

If only the sound of that 488 could drown out the sound of that dude. Holy crap he's a ******.

Third that opinion. It's like defining how good a meal is by how well you f**t!
