The 488 GTB is Ferrari's first mid-engined, twin-turbo, V8 since the legendary 288 GTO and the F40. The 488 GTB has unique engine management system that delivers torque in a controlled and sustained manner with zero turbo lag and response times equivalent to a naturally-aspirated V8 engine.

The track only Ferrari FXX K on the other hand has a V12 engine and a hybrid system that constantly delivers 1050 CV, with the "K" that refers to the "KERS" kinetic energy recovery system it adopts in maximising its track performance.
