Ferrari | A First Look

The Ferrari 488 Pista will be unveiled at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

It’s the successor to Ferrari’s V8-engined special series – the 360 Challenge Stradale, 430 Scuderia and 458 Speciale – which have received critical acclaim for their performance and undiluted handling.

The Ferrari 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.
Compared to the 488 GTB, the new model weighs an impressive 90kg less, which, when combined with the largest ever increase in engine power for a special series car, results in a new benchmark for Ferrari’s V8 sports cars.
Its engine is the most powerful V8 in Ferrari history and is an extreme evolution of the turbo unit that won the overall International Engine of the Year award titles in both 2016 and 2017.
