  • Ferrari 488 Pista

The bodywork's revisions include using the front and rear diffusers from the 488 GTE racing auto, there are lighter wheels and carbon-fibre has been used extensively throughout the vehicle to help reduce weight. Like the hardcore Ferraris of generations past, the 488 Pista has been optimized for track use by borrowing some parts from Ferrari's motorsports efforts.

Pista, of course, is the Italian word for "track", and a track is very much where you'll want to spend most of your time with the auto.

The Ferrari 488 Pista will be physically revealed at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show. For comparison, Ferrari's official acceleration figures for the 488 GTB are 3.0 seconds and 8.3 seconds, respectively.

Ferrari is also yet to confirm whether the name Pista is going to stick.

Previously known as the 488 GTO, the Pista follows in the footsteps of the Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale, 430 Scuderia, and 458 Speciale.

The Ferrari 488 Pista is revealed as Ferrari's new Special Series auto, complete with 711bhp from its 3.9 litre V8 turbo, a weight drop and 0-62mph in 2.85 seconds.

And, without such cooperation, Europe and other players would be unable or unwilling to play a more active role. Tensions between Iran and Israel have risen since an Iranian dron entered the Israeli airspace eight days ago.


Ferrari South Africa confirms the 488 Pista will be available locally some time in the first quarter of 2019. Since the 488 GTB is more or less a heavily updated 458 Italia, that would make sense.

The Pista will propel itself to 62 mph (100 kph) in a mere 2.85 seconds, with the 0 to 124 mph (200 kph) time standing in at 7.6 seconds on its way to the top speed in excess of 211 mph (340 kph). The next 62 miles per hour are cleared in just under five seconds for a 0-124 miles per hour (0-200 km/h) time of 7.6 seconds. This helps the vehicle sprint from 0-62mph in 2.85sec and go onto a top speed of 211mph - near identical performance figures to that of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS.

If the 720S is 1419kg and the 488 GTB is 1475kg, we wouldn't be surprised to see the Pista drop more than 100kg.

The design of the Ferrari 488 Pista is focussed on functional aerodynamic concepts while the cockpit is pared back in keeping with its very sporty vocation.

A new version of Ferrari's Side-Slip Angle Control system, now up to v6.0, adds the Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer (FDE) into the mix.

At least for now, Ferrari hasn't said anything about price, but that may be announced at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
