The 488 Pista (meaning “track” in English) is the successor to Ferrari’s V8-powered special series — the 360 Challenge Stradale, 430 Scuderia and 458 Speciale — and it’s imbued with some serious technology. The mechanicals, adaptive dampers, dynamics, and aerodynamics were derived from the 488 GTE and 488 Challenge race cars.

Report: Ferrari 488 GTO Will be Faster Than a LaFerrari

  Report: Ferrari 488 GTO Will be Faster Than a LaFerrari Details appear to leak on Ferrari fan pageThe Ferrari 488 GTB is a very good driver's car. In fact, we recently declared it the Best Driver's Car. But just because it's already fantastic doesn't mean it can't improve. And if the latest alleged leak is to be believed, Ferrari has an updated version in the works that will take everything we love about the 488 GTB and make it even better.

Why does it matter? The 488 Pista’s 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8 produces 711 horsepower (up 50 hp) and 568 pound-feet of torque at 3,000 rpm. With a dry curb weight of 1,280 kg, the Pista has a power-to-weight ratio of just 1.8 kg of Prancing Horse per horsepower. The monster output brings a run to 100 km/h of 2.85 seconds and a top speed of 340 km/h! That is on par with the LaFerrari flagship.

To handle the speed the Pista gets a full compliment of electronic assistants including Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer. This new system adjusts the brake pressure at the calipers — think brake-based torque vectoring. Likewise, the Slideslip Angle Control system now has a drift mode. Factor in the 20 per cent improvement in downforce and you have a formidable missile.
