Following in the footsteps of the legendary 360 Challenge Stradale, the ballistic 430 Scuderia, the scalpel-like 458 Speciale and the bonkers 488 Pista, the 2017 488 Challenge surprisingly evaded the hype surrounding track special Ferraris every time they are launched. To correct that unsightly error on the part of supercar fans, Ferrari has launched this, the 488 Challenge Evo, to drive a jackhammer as revenge into the faces of people who ignored the base car.
The Challenge Evo gets an incredible 50% more downforce over the “regular” (hah!) Challenge, bigger brakes with a redesigned front disc that reduces brake wear, fatter Pirelli tyres, a whole re-do of the interior that turns it into a proper race car cockpit and a whole lot more. Essentially the Challenge Evo is a homologation of the new 488 GT3 Evo, which will no doubt head over to an endurance racing series the first chance it gets.
