Ferrari 488 Pista debuts ahead of Geneva Motor Show
Beneath the auto, the underbody vortex generators have been redesigned to work with the new rear diffuser, which again takes a page out of the 488 GTE to increase the extraction and downforce generation.
The tires, designed specially for the all-new Ferrari 488Pista, are from the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 line.
We'd argue the 488 Pista has to be one of the best-looking Ferraris made in recent years, and pretty much every surface on the new auto has been created to force it into the tarmac.
An F1-inspired S-Duct which sees air enter under the front spoiler and exit through the bonnet, a diffuser derived straight from the GTE racing programme, and a higher rear spoiler all contribute to a 20 percent increase in downforce over the 488 GTB. The 2018 Ferrari 488 Pista makes its official debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show next month.
When you're expected to replace models like the 360 Challenge Stradale, 430 Scuderia, and 458 Speciale, then, you need to have something special up your sleeve.
Powering the 488 Pista is the familiar 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 now tuned to deliver 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque, up on the 488 GTB's 660 hp and 560 lb-ft.
Ferrari 488 special-edition dubbed Pista
The term "otherwise normal" hardly seems appropriate though, as a regular 488 is already equipped with 492kW and 760Nm.
As you would expect, extensive weight saving is key to the Ferrari 488 Pista's formula. This helps the 488 achieve a 0 to 100 km/h sprint of just 2.85 seconds and a 200 km/h sprint of just 7.6 seconds. Essentially, the 488 Pista is a more lightweight and much more powerful variant of the 488 GTB.
All the aerodynamic changes have resulted in an 20 per cent increase in downforce.
Ferrari also adds the latest version of its Side-Slip Control system, featuring the electronic differential and magnetorheological suspension (variable dampers using a magnetic field). Top speed? A mere 211 miles per hour (340 km/h).
The performance-obsessed numbers do make the Ferrari 488 Pista a stellar supercar. This is the first application of FDE, a system which automatically adjusts brake pressure on the calipers.
Like the 458 Speciale that came before it, there's also a red white and blue decal running the length of the auto - though that was revealed as part of the teaser video earlier this month.
