The Ferrari 488 Pista: not a grocery getter

It would appear as though Porsche’s not the only carmaker capable of launching multiple versions of a same car. Enter the new and very bonkers 488 Pista.

The Pista is the next in line in a series of V8-engined special cars: the 360 Challenge Stradale, the 430 Scuderia and the 458 Speciale. In Ferrari’s own words, this one is a significant step forward from these previous cars.

The 488 Pista weighs in at 1,280 kg, or 90 kg less than the GTB and is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.9-litre V8. It punches out 720 horsepower and 568 lb.-ft. of torque. Because Ferrari is Ferrari, they’ve calculated the 0-100 km/h sprint time at 2.85-seconds and we suppose that’s ok…

The car’s aerodynamics are impressive and help the driver keep things in control even at or near the limits. Sadly, we’ll never get to drive one but if you’re at the Geneva Motor Show in a few weeks, you’ll get to see it live!
