Ferrari 488 Pista unveiled before Geneva Motor Show debut

Hardcore Ferrari 488 leaked in full

The eight-cylinder helps the Pista hit 62 mph from a stop in 2.8 seconds, 124 mph from a stop in 7.6 seconds, and go on to a top speed of over 211 mph. The next 62 miles per hour are cleared in just under five seconds for a 0-124 miles per hour (0-200 km/h) time of 7.6 seconds.

The tires, designed specially for the all-new Ferrari 488 Pista, are from the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 line.

As you'd expect, the new Ferrari 488 owes much of its upgraded performance to the company's motorsport know-how; it makes great play of its five manufacturer titles, 29 race wins and 25 years of one-make racing all lending a hand in the creation of the 488 Pista.

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

It's new, it's called the 4XX Siracusa Spider, and it's also a mind-boggling example of how to ruin a flawlessly drawn Ferrari like the 488 Spider.

"Pista" means, simply, "Track", and the moniker is entirely apt as it's where the 2019 Ferrari 488 Pista will truly thrive.

The Ferrari 488 Pista will be shown in the metal once the Geneva Motor Show opens this March. Torque now sits at 568 lb-ft, 7 lb-ft more than the standard 488. Again, there's little information at this point as to where the weight savings comes from, but we'll bet it's in more extensive use of carbonfibre and the deletion of comfort modcons.

The hardcore version of the Ferrari 488 GTB has been subject to various leaks of late. It notably receives comprehensive aerodynamic upgrades including a model-specific s-shaped duct up front and a rear spoiler that's higher and longer. Comparing the numbers, the 488 GTB will do all this in 3 seconds, 8.3 seconds and 05 miles per hour (330 kph), respectively. This helps the vehicle sprint from 0-62mph in 2.85sec and go onto a top speed of 211mph - near identical performance figures to that of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS. There are also plenty of performance aids including Side-Slip Angle Control 6.0, which consists of E-Diff3, F1-Trac, magnetorheological suspension, and the Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer (which adjusts brake pressure at the caliper). The redesigned front end should give extra downforce and stability (said to be 20 per cent more aerodynamically efficient) while the rear end has had a slight makeover as well.

It's also the first vehicle to use FDE, a system that automatically adjusts brake pressure on the calipers. Prices are likely to start at around £215,000 when the auto goes on sale after making its debut at the Geneva motor show.
