Did you know that Pista means track in Italian? Yep. Ferrari could have named its latest 488 variant Pizza and we’d still want one. Well, if we had $345,300 or so in the bank and already had a Ferrari or two in the garage that is.
The 488 Pista packs a potent 3.9-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine that delivers 711 hp and 568 lb ft of torque. It can sprint from 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds and has a top speed of 211 mph. The engine is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Up front, the hood gets an F1-inspired S-Duct and a white and blue stripe that starts down low between the front diffusers. The racing stripe continues over the curved roofline and exits off the carbon-fiber rear spoiler like a ramp.
The Pista weighs in at 2822 pounds, which is 200 pounds lighter than the 488 GTB. Like the 488 Challenge, it sports Inconel exhaust manifolds, and a lightweight crankshaft and flywheel. It also features titanium con rods and carbon-fiber intake plenums.
