Launched at the Geneva show in 2018, the Ferrari 488 Pista is the latest addition to Ferrari’s special series which include the
- 360 Challenge Stradale
- 430 Scuderia
- 458 Speciale
Ferrari’s special series cars are limited production, highly collectible models which are produced towards the end of a lifecycle and incorporate all that the manufacturer has learnt and developed in the preceding years.
Pista which means track in Italian gives a clue to the inspiration drawn from Ferrari’s 488 GTE racecar which competes in the World Endurance Championship races including the Lemans 24 hours.
The Ferrari 488 Pista sees the highest level of technology transfer ever from the Ferrari’s racing activities which is evident in the racing derived aerodynamics and Ferrari’s most powerful V8 engine. The 3.9l twin turbocharged V8 produces 720 BHP and has won the International Engine of the year award.
