2018 Ferrari 488 Pista

Ferrari has released its latest supercar and it is called the Ferrari 488 Pista. The photos of the car have been leaked on the internet recently by one of Ferrari's employees which means that we could have got a glimpse of the beast before its manufacturer officially release it and shortly after the post was deleted by Ferrari. Later the same day, Ferrari revealed few pictures of the car along with some unclear specifications. Just like the looks, the specs of the car will also amaze you. Let's have a deeper look at the Ferrari 488 Pista.

The Ferrari 488 Pista is an updated version of the 488 GTB, just like the Ferrari 458 Speciale was the updated version of the 458. At one glance, it is quite obvious that the car is simply a better 488 GTB in all aspects. Even though Ferrari already shared the first few pictures of the car, very few people know about it. How is that possible? Well, we are still trying to figure out. The Ferrari 488 Pista will be displayed at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show and the general public will not only get a chance to see the car but they will be able to order theirs also.

Ferrari 488 Pista Specifications



The Ferrari 488 Pista is designed to be better than the 488 GTB in terms of aerodynamics and downforce. According to Ferrari, the car has been inspired greatly from the Ferrari 488 GTE, which is the track version of the 488 GTB. 

The F1 inspired S-duct and front diffusers are part of the updates for the car, increasing downforce by 20 percent over the previous 488 GTB. The rear 'blown' spoiler is higher and wider than on any other car before, eliminating the need for a rear wing. The Ferrari 488 Pista is also equipped with new GTE-sourced 'double-kink' rear diffusers, making the car sounds more ferocious on the ear at all gears and at all speeds. Bespoke Michelin track-focused tyres will be wrapped around the new carbon-fibre wheels, reducing the weight of the car by 90 kg. 

As the makers say, the Ferrari 488 Pista will have a dry weight of just 1280 kg, achieved only with the optional lightweight features. 

2018 Ferrari 488 Pista Review


The interior of the Ferrari 488 Pista looks just like the previous 488 GTB at first glance. But now, the throttle response is faster along with improved handling to go around corners faster. The car has the sixth evolution of Slide-Slip Angle Control that controls the electronic differential. Also equipped with magnetorheological suspension and the F1-Trac stability control which integrates along the Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer software. Ferrari says that it is now easier to get the car to its limits and exploit its handling. 

There are rumours on the internet saying that the Ferrari 488 Pista can do a lap of the Ferrari's Fiorano test track faster than the iconic Laferrari. Imagine how crazy this car will be if this rumour turns out to be true.

Finally, let's talk about what is powering this car. The Ferrari 488 Pista has a 3.9L twin-turbo V8 producing 711 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque. The 488 Pista has 50 hp more than the 488 GTB. The car will do 0 to 62 mph in only 2.85s and it will reach 124 mph in approximately 7.6s. The Ferrari 488 Pista has a top speed of more than 211 mph (exact number not yet available), but one thing is sure, it will outrun its competitors in a straight line as it is more track-focused. 

NOTE: All the specifications of the car has not yet been released. As for now, this is what we know of the Ferrari 488 Pista.

Well, you know here at SuperCar Guru, it is a must to talk about competitors and here again, let's take a look at the best competitor of the Ferrari 488 Pista.

McLaren 720s

Ferrari 488 Pista competitor McLaren 720s

Yes, this is the best competitor to the Ferrari 488 Pista. The same car that was trending everywhere when it was officially released and since then this car has been the benchmark every supercar manufacturer has been trying to compete with. But here, we are not going to talk about this.

The McLaren 720s is a British sports car manufactured by McLaren Automotive. It is the second all-new car in the McLaren Super Series. This car is actually replacing the previous 650s.

The car is powered by a 4.0L twin-turbo V8 making 710 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque. The car will achieve 62 mph in 2.9s and it will accelerate to 124 mph in 7.8s. The car has a top speed of 212 mph (341 km/h).

The McLaren 720s has a modified chassis which is lighter and stiffer compared to the 650s. There are a lot of features inspired from the legendary McLaren F1, such as the F1 twin-hinged dihedral doors. Inside the headlights are hidden air vents that allow air into the two small radiators in front of the wheels. The doors are designed to have air channels that direct air to the engine.

The exterior has been shaped to increase downforce by 50 percent over the previous 650s. The interior of the car features exposed carbon-fibre everywhere and it also has a folding driver display, the very first car to have this piece of invention. The car has a dry weight of 1283 kg (2829 lbs).

The McLaren 720s is priced at $291,564 excluding options.

McLaren 720s specifications

For the time being, we cannot really compare these two cars as the Ferrari 488 Pista has not yet been tested on track and there are still some unknown specifications of the car. We wish to see these two racing against each other on a track very soon. Also, McLaren Automotive will be releasing the McLaren 720LT, which will be an updated version of the 720s. Will the Ferrari 488 Pista be able to compete against this one too? Only time can tell. As for now, let's just satisfy ourselves with the pictures of the menacing Ferrari 488 Pista and the incredible driving experience of the McLaren 720s.
