If the Japanese company ROWEN INTERNATIONAL trumpeted the world for the Ferrari 488 GTB (internal ID F142M) want to develop a complete body kit then you can, rightly, get a certain amount of gasping! Vehicles like that are too much for us Toyota 200 Hiace 4, the BMW Z4 E89 or even the Toyota Prius CX with their extremely striking aerodynamic components in memory. But already in mid-December there was a first virtual one Preview and already there it became apparent that the Italian will probably be more subtle. And luckily that was also the case because Rowen presented his 2017 GTB at the 488 Tokyo Auto Salon, which ended yesterday, and the virtual study was apparently consistently followed. Everything was implemented exactly as we have already seen and even, the perfectly successful 5-spoke design, wheel set made it to the 488. On the lower part of the bumper you can see an additional front spoiler with sideflaps and clearly 2 additional fins were attached to the side of the front apron.
The side skirts, which also have flaps in the rear, are also very discreet and visually successful. The most visually striking component of the aerodynamic kit is the large diffuser with its vertical fins which, in conjunction with a discreet spoiler lip, rounds off the rear. In the preview published in December, however, a fixed rear wing was installed that cannot be seen on the exhibition vehicle but was replaced by the aforementioned spoiler lip. Unfortunately, we do not currently know whether the component is also available or whether it has been deleted from production. We also don't know to what extent the 488 has been technically revised. Although you can see a high-quality stainless steel sports exhaust system and a significant lowering is unmistakable, the exact background & specifications of the changes are not known to us in this regard. The first pictures of the real vehicle are definitely extremely convincing and we hope to receive more information soon. As soon as this is the case, there will of course, as always, be an update for this report. The best thing is to subscribe to our feed and if there is something new you will be informed immediately. We hope you enjoy looking at the pictures.
