The Ferrari 488 GTB may have been the star of the show at its Australian unveiling this week, but we couldn’t help but appreciate the five decades of pedigree parked on the lawns of the Inglis Newmarket Stables in Randwick in the lead up to the new model.

To both celebrate the local debut of the 488 GTB and to commemorate 40 years since the launch of the Italian brand’s first-ever mid-rear-engined V8 berlinetta, the 308, Ferrari Australasia assembled a stunning example of each of the models in the 488’s bloodline.
