Not only is the 2019 Ferrari 488 Pista the latest in a line of special V8-engined dynamos, but it might very well be the brand’s sleekest and sportiest car yet. Speaking of V-8s, Ferrari is claiming the Pista’s twin-turbo 3.9-litre engine is their0102 most powerful to date, capable of producing 711 hp and going from 0 to 62 mph in 2.85 seconds flat. In order to achieve those feats of strength–along with a top speed of 211 mph–the lightweight two-seater shed 90 kg off the preceding 488 GTB. The result is a fast, dynamic and downright beautiful ride that’s guaranteed to drop jaws at the upcoming Geneva Motorshow.
Ferrari’s instant classic was born out of their involvement in the FIA World Endurance Championship, where they took home five GTE titles over the course of six years. Meanwhile, the name itself pays direct tribute to Ferrari’s own motor sport heritage. Accordingly, the 488 Pista touts a lean design, and the topmost shelf of aerodynamics and racing technology. The best part? In spite of its track-ready vibe, this beauty was made for the road.
Between its resoundingly sexy body and impressively powerful engine, the 2019 Ferrari 488 Pista is pretty much living proof of why the luxury automaker is so irresistible in the first place. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled once this agile stunner hits the road. We mean that literally, since if you blink you might miss it.
