Ferrari 488 Pista Preps for Geneva

Hardcore Ferrari 488 leaked in full

A blown rear spoiler with a "suspended" appearance has been reshaped and made longer and higher for increased performance.

According to an Australian source, Ferrari officially unveiled 2018 488 Pista and it will cost $645,000 drive-away. No, we are not referring to the Indian nickname of Pistachio, rather, the Pista in this context refers to "track" in Italian.

Get your orders in fast if you want to bag a Ferrari 488 Pista because they're going fast, and make sure you have at least AED1,000,000 handy. The 488 Pista will celebrate its public debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in March.

The 488 Pista is the successor to the Italian marque's limited-edition 458 Speciale from 2013, with both cars taking inspiration from Ferrari's current crop of racing machines.

This is the new Ferrari 488 Pista, a race-car-influenced version of the standard 488 GTB that becomes the most powerful V8-engined Ferrari in the company's history. It should sound more furious than the 488 GTB, too.

The official performance figures for the 488 Pista give a 0-60mph time of 2.6 seconds.

Netanyahu said Zarif "lies with eloquence", and would "brazenly deny Iran's nefarious involvement in Syria ". Anti-aircraft fire downed the jet as it was returning from a bombing raid on Iran-backed positions in Syria .

The Pista will propel itself to 62 mph (100 kph) in a mere 2.85 seconds, with the 0 to 124 mph (200 kph) time standing in at 7.6 seconds on its way to the top speed in excess of 211 mph (340 kph).

The underside of the 488 Pista features redesigned vortex generators, and there's even an F1-inspired S-duct - created to tidy up airflow over the top surface of the vehicle - at the front. Torque now sits at 568 lb-ft, 7 lb-ft more than the standard 488.

Among the host of electronics offered in the Ferrari 488 Pista, there is electronic dynamic controls with Side-Slip Angle Control system (SSC 6.0) that incorporates E-Diff3, F1-Trac, the magnetorheological suspension (SCM).

To start with, with Ferrari's extensive experience in the GTE Class, the 488 Pista will be quite the focussed fighter. It uses software to adjust the brake pressure at the calipers, which Ferrari claims will increase handling prowess and let you kick the rear end out a bit better.

The 488 special edition wasn't expected to be officially revealed until Geneva, but Maranello has been scrambling to plug leaks for months now, with images and technical information seeping out since late past year.
