Confirmed for launch in late 2016, the 488 GTE prototype has been spied undergoing testing at the Vallelunga circuit in Italy. Piloted by Gianmaria Bruni and Davide Rigon, the prototype sports an aero kit consisting of larger fenders, a modified front bumper, larger air intakes in the rear fenders and a towering rear wing.

The racer will reportedly share the 488 GTB’s 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8, which in production form, generates 500kW and 760Nm of torque, enabling the GTB to hit 100km/h from a standstill in 3.0 seconds.

According to Ferrari, this first run of the machine was “just a shakedown” and the “proper development” should start in a month.
