    Ferrari's turbocharged 488 GTB puts up a good fight against the McLaren MP4-12C/650S

    Despite what some magazines might say the naturally aspirated 458 Italia was overmatched in acceleration versus the turbocharged McLaren MP4-12C and its 650S successor. What we all want to see is how the new 3.8 liter twin turbocharged V8 in the 488 GTB stacks up against the competition from McLaren.

    Well, the 488 GTB is definitely much faster than the 458 and it goes door to door with a stock MP4-12C on the highway on this video. The thing is, the McLaren appears to pull up top and this is just a stock MP4-12C and not a tuned example if you believe the uploader's claims.

    If this MP4-12C is stock the 650S should fare even better against the 488 GTB as would the new leaner and more powerful 675LT model.

    Assuming this is the case the 488 GTB still trails its competition from McLaren. At least in raw acceleration.

    Me too.

    Impressive it seems that McLaren is still faster even with Ferrari coming to market later with a new turbo V8. That is impressive.
