    Thx for posting this video ... yeah the guy was a bit annoying, but I did like seeing the 2 cars side by side. As I've noted in other posts, I like the 488 side skirts and it was good to see them next to the C8. It is amazing how large the C8 is compared to my 308. The C8 is way faster too, but you know it is fun to drive a "slow" car fast.

    Really don't care. I couldn't /(didn't want too) afford the Ferrari. I have a C8 HTC in the garage... The choice was easy...

    Pretty cool...

    Realistically, the C8 is much more in line with the 2004-2009 F430 from an engineering and performance standpoint, but styling is definitely closer to the 488.

    That's a great find. Thanks for posting. Finally someone did a proper side-by-side comparison of the two spiders. For the money, you can't beat the Vette. But if you got the money to buy a Ferrari you're not too worried about the money.

    I'm still at 1100, so nope.

    I think watch the new Magnum PI just to see the 488 - I love is elegant lines even if its " less aggressive" than the C8.

    Best to watch video with the sound off, IMO.

    I saw a 328 GTSi yesterday, that is a LITTLE car compared to modern sports cars!

    He had one thing right. The C8 is a significantly better value bang for the buck.

    The 488 is more elegant, the C8 more brutal. Neither is right or wrong. I'd have one of each were money no object.

    Well, no, not really. If money were no object I'd get an F8 or SF90 instead of the 488.

    As far as the video goes, I'm so done with vloggers who think I want to look at their faces instead of the cars, so I didn't watch more than about 10 seconds of it.

    I was hoping for a comparison of their handling on the road, but no such luck, although I doubt I would have believed whatever he had to say about the Ferrari anyway. A poor comparison given his obvious bias towards the C8. But you can't dispute the fact that for the price of the Ferrari being shown, you could almost purchase 4 of the C8 convertibles in his video.

    Just a little Bias! No doubt that the 488 is a great car but lov'in my C8 HTC. I was very disappointed with the door entry handles on the 488. Also love the additional storage with the C8 for road trips. Having the choice without consideration of price, I would choose the C8.
