The high-performance version of the 488 sports vehicle, which James May described as being "like a mini LaFerrari" in his review for Driving.co.uk, is due to be revealed at the Geneva motor show, next month, but pictures have leaked online.
The Ferrari 488 Pista arrives - not the 488 Challenge Stradale, not the 488 Scuderia and not the 488 Speciale, but the 488 "Track" - and immediately becomes the most powerful V8 Ferrari ever. The car's wheels will come with tyres specifically developed by Michelin for the 488 Pista.
This additional level of control further fine-tunes the Ferrari 488 Pista's performance through, and powering out of, corners making the car's handling even more effortless, intuitive and predictable. 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.
The Prancing Horse explains the 488 Pista (a name which means "track" in Italian) benefits from the lessons learned while competing in the FIA's World Endurance Championship, a series which includes the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The increased downforce is attributed to components like revised front air intakes, new rear diffuser and blown spoiler, S-duct derived from Formula 1 and much more.
Instead, it will wear the "Pista" badge, which is Italian for "track". The Pista also gains carbon engine cover, bumpers and rear spoiler while 20-inch carbon-fibre wheel rims are optional - for the first time on a Ferrari. Ferrari claims an improvement of 20% in the generation of downforce compared to the 488 GTB.
As you would expect, extensive weight saving is key to the Ferrari 488 Pista's formula. Top speed? A mere 211 miles per hour (340 km/h).
It weighs an equally impressive 90kg less than the 488 GTB, tipping the scales at 1280kg dry.
Now these focused Ferraris have always been about more than just outright power - the Pista's 50hp gain is actually the most these special Berlinettas have ever received - and, unsurprisingly, there's a renewed focused on mass reduction and aerodynamics too.
