Ferrari 488 GTB wins Red Dot design award

Ferrari’s 488 GTB has won the Red Dot ‘Best of the Best’ award for its design and innovative lines.

The most recent plaudits for the Ferrari Style Centre comes after it recently picked up several IF Design Awards in Munich, Germany, at the start of the month. On the latter occasion, the big winner was the FXX K (Red Dot Best of the Best 2015) which took home the Gold Award, the Hannover institute’s top prize. However, the 488 GTB and 488 Spider also scored a double whammy at the same event with a Design Excellence Award apiece.

This latest accolade is an acknowledgment of Maranello’s ability to create a whole new take on the sporty V8 berlinetta concept, four decades on from its introduction. The 488 GTB, 'that delivers an effortless mix of stylistic sophistication and technological innovation' was selected for the top award by a jury of 41 members that examined no less than 5,214 product designs from 57 different countries.

The Ferrari 488 GTB is priced at £184k OTR. See video of the its reveal in Geneva 2015 below:
