A Ferrari 488 GTB sporting a more aggressive nose has been snapped, hinting at what might be to come in the hotter 488 ‘Speciale’ when it arrives.

The image, posted by ‘Supercar Advocates’ on Facebook, shows two 488s sitting side-by-side in a garage, with one car covered by white stickers.

As you can see, the left-hand car is finished in the traditional Ferrari red, and wears a front bumper that looks similar to that of the 458 Speciale.

We can’t tell you much about the car because, well, there are no real details available, but there are a few bets we’re willing to make about the car, based on previous special editions.

For one, it should be lighter than the regular car: the 458 Speciale weighed 90kg less than the Italia.

Expect to see more power, too, given both the 458 Speciale and F430 Scuderia offered 25kW and 15kW over their more mundane brethren respectively.

And of course, no special-edition Ferrari would be complete without some serious aerodynamic trickery.

The last limited-run production Prancing Horse, the F12 tdf, combined rear-wheel steering with a new splitter, dive planes, floor wings and rear spoiler.

Whatever Ferrari does, it’s bound to be exciting. Stay tuned to CarAdvice for all the latest.

Thanks to Frank for the tip!
