What is it? The 488 Pista (meaning “track” in English) is the successor to Ferrari’s V8-powered special series — the 360 Challenge Stradale, 430 Scuderia and 458 Speciale — and it’s imbued with some serious technology. The mechanicals, adaptive dampers, dynamics, and aerodynamics were derived from the 488 GTE and 488 Challenge race cars. To improve performance it was put on a diet — it is 90 kilograms lighter than the 488 GTB thanks to the use of carbon-fibre in places like the intake plenum.

Why does it matter? The 488 Pista’s 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8 produces 711 horsepower (up 50 hp) and 568 pound-feet of torque at 3,000 rpm. With a dry curb weight of 1,280 kg, the Pista has a power-to-weight ratio of just 1.8 kg of Prancing Horse per horsepower. The monster output brings a run to 100 km/h of 2.85 seconds and a top speed of 340 km/h! That is on par with the LaFerrari flagship.

To handle the speed the Pista gets a full compliment of electronic assistants including Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer. This new system adjusts the brake pressure at the calipers — think brake-based torque vectoring. Likewise, the Slideslip Angle Control system now has a drift mode. Factor in the 20 per cent improvement in downforce and you have a formidable missile.

When will Canada get it? The Ferrari 488 Pista is heading to Canada — when is to be determined.

Should you buy it? The 488 GTB is a stunning ride with tenacious handling and blinding speed. The Pista takes the basics and amps everything up, including the glorious exhaust tone. All of this takes the Pista to the next level — I’ll have mine in Giallo Modena!
