Ahead of its debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, Ferrari gives us an official look at the all-new 488 Pista, the successor to the manufacturer’s V8-engined special series.
As Ferrari points out, the 488 Pista “marks a significant step forward from the previous special series in terms of both sporty dynamics and for the level of technological carry-over from racing.”
Thanks to the weight-saving solutions, as well as the engine, vehicle dynamics and aerodynamic developments, the vehicle offers track-like performance on and off the road. Subsequently, the engine — boasting the largest-ever increase in power for a special series car — is the most powerful V8 in Ferrari history.
Now, the lighter and more agile 488 transitions from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.85 seconds and 0 to 200 km/h in 7.6 seconds, before topping out at 340 km/h.
The Pista’s front diffusers then feature a ramp angle optimized for the 488 GTE to create strong suction for increased downforce, while the rear blown spoiler is higher and longer, all equating to a 20 percent increase in downforce compared to the 488 GTB.
Again, you can look forward to the official debut of Ferrari’s 488 Pista at the Geneva Motor Show.
