Whenever Ferrari launch a new model, it's guaranteed to be something special. Their latest offering isn't just any Ferrari though, it's their latest road legal track-focused version to be blessed with their incredible motorsport heritage.
The Ferrari 488 Pista is a lightweight, hardcore performance version of the Ferrari 488 GTB. Pista, which is Italian for track, is the successor to previous special Ferrari models which include the 360 Challenge Stradale, F430 Scuderia and 458 Speciale.
With such a successful history in motorsport, the Ferrari 488 takes its weight saving, dynamics and aerodynamics from Ferrari's 488 racing cars; the 488 Challenge and 488 GTE.
Jump inside the 488 Pista and it is very much like sitting in the cockpit of a more luxurious racing car. Not too much though, as they would go against what this car stands for. Therefore, you get Ferrari bucket seats with four-point seatbelts and no carpets. It's by no means scarce though, and is finished using a premium selection of materials that give the Pista a perfect race car for the road ambience.
The Ferrari 488 Pista will make its public debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.
