A German tuning firm by the name of Pogea Racing has gone and cranked up the performance on the 661-horsepower Ferrari 488 GTB, creating a lethal 809-hp track weapon they call the “FPlus Corsa”. In its special state of tune, the twin-turbocharged, 3.9-liter V8 in the Corsa makes 664 lb-ft of torque, which Top Gear points out is about twice what the Ferrari F430 Scuderia made back in its day.
Apart from its newfound power, Pogea Racing’s new FPlus Corsa builds on the superb foundation provided by the 488 GTB with a range of aggressive carbon-fiber aerodynamic pieces – a rear wing, front splitter, etc. – and rarity; just twenty examples will be made, at the price of about $43k (USD) apiece. That means it’ll be significantly more rare than the Ferrari 488 “Pista” model introduced by the Italian sportscar marque earlier this year.
That car makes but a meager 711 brake-horsepower, meaning Pogea Racing’s FPlus Corsa is also considerably more potent.
Still, despite its patently absurd horsepower rating, the FPlus Corsa isn’t all that much quicker than Ferrari’s own souped-up 488 Pista; sixty-two miles per hour (100 kmph) can be achieved in about 2.8 seconds, according to the tuning firm, and the car maxes out at 215 mph. But if you’re into flashy carbon-fiber and going slightly quicker than the 488 next to you, the Pogea Racing FPlus Corsa might just suit you.
