The vital vision of a FERRARI 488 GTB by VOS PERFORMANCE.
To create a stimulating re-interpretation of an automobile icon and assemble something incredibly unique: This is one of the specialties of the fine-tuning company “VOS PERFORMANCE” in Swabian Neckar westheim.
The acronym VOS represents VISION of SPEED. A company’s name that impersonates not only engine power, but much more. Managing Director Michael Keller describes the philosophy of the enterprise: ”Each vehicle appears with its own character. Knowing the character in detail is the basic prerequisite. In order to compose an inventive or extending interpretation of the existing material, the true art is to strike the right “note” if implanting the slightest adjustment into the individual automobile DNA. I like to compare our work with the tuning of a Stradivari. If handling it incorrectly or too insensitive, the soul of such an extraordinary masterpiece can be destroyed in an instant.”
The Ferrari 488 GBT is most certainly a VOS-VISION who triggered a trend reversal avalanche in Maranello last year and has been celebrated as an automobile sensation. With immediate effect, the long-time defended bastion of the naturally aspirated engines are surrounded by the hissing sound of a powerful turbocharger. Originally, the 3,9 liter bi-turbo V8 offers a spectacular 493 kW (670 HP). The engineers and technicians of VOS PERFORMANCE proudly presents the astonishing power curve of their top model: using the option VOS PERFORMANCE power increase “Stage 3”, the Swabians can write down a furious 662 kW (900 HP) into the technical family register of “their” Ferrari. A brute 910 ft.-lbs. of torque – as swift as an arrow spoken rhyme – joins with almost the same value numerically. Further options like “Stage 1 (750 HP / 810 ft.-lbs. of torque)” and “Stage 2 (830 HP / 860 ft.-lbs. of torque)” are available. This translates into an aggressive acceleration rate that feeds the driver’s adrenaline.
MichaelKeller:”We achieved this quantum leap by the optimization of the engine management system and an adjusted air induction system. The exhaust system has been specially developed by VOS PERFORMANCE – various extension levels are available – either with “Downpipe” or sports catalyst (200 cpsi) in order to add the final touch to our VISION of SPEED.“ This description illustrates that the future pilot will experience an unprecedented experience of power and sound. For all the aficionados of impressive sound reefs, VOS PERFORMANCE provides a newly developed Titan exhaust system range together with the well-known sport exhaust systems manufacturer AKRAPOVIČ coming in May. Heavy Metal plays the solo of “Days of Thunder“.
The sophisticated carbon-outfit not only adds more distinguished character but causes a stir. For the elegant woman, the little black dress is of importance. For the masculine Italian, the breathtaking VOS PERFORMANCE carbon-outfit is his state of passion: insanely sexy and at the same time extremely nonchalant. The optical adjustments involves the lower front, side sills-like spearheads and a multi-part system diffuser – depending on the configuration level – at the lower rear. Another notable feature: the rear-wing of the 488, carried out in zero position, has been fabricated as a complete mono bloc component. The striking trenchant mirror caps, as well as the “ventilation system” of tailored air-intake and outlet veneers at the vehicle’s flanks, assembles the perfect body-kit shaped by VOS PERFORMANCE. Every single part of high-quality visible carbon fiber is produced with absolute precision. Because of the complex calculation of the line layout, the air circulation at the front- and rear-axle is eased.
