The F1-inspired front S-Duct and the design of the front diffusers which feature a ramp angle that was optimised for the 488 GTE to create strong suction for increased downforce has been offered in the 488 Pista.
The FerrariPista is all set to become the most hardcore, track-focused road vehicle Ferrari has ever produced.
Pista, of course, is the Italian word for "track", and a track is very much where you'll want to spend most of your time with the auto.
Following in the footsteps of the previous flagship models, Ferrari has unveiled its top-end version of its 488 supercar that will be publically unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. Additionally, it features the most powerful V8 by Ferrari that makes 721PS at 8,000rpm and generates a meaty 770Nm at 3,000 rpm.
The last three V8-powered Ferraris all had special editions - the 360 Challenge Stradale, 430 Scuderia and 458 Speciale - so it only makes sense that Ferrari would do the same thing with the 488 GTB.
With the 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8 powering the 488 GTB already packing 661hp, expect Pista to be nudging close to the 700hp mark. With more power and less weight, Ferrari says the Pista will hit 62 miles per hour in 2.85 seconds and 124 miles per hour in 7.6.
The increased power output and weight loss means that the 488 Pista shaves 0.2 seconds off the 0-60 sprint (now standing at 2.8 seconds), while the vehicle can now top out at 211 miles per hour (up from 205 mph).
The engine cover, bumpers and rear spoiler are all made from carbon-fibre, while the 488 Pista will be the first Ferrari available with optional 20-inch carbon-fibre wheel rims. The vehicle weighs 1279kg and going to reduce nearly 100kg in the heft of its weight compared to the standard 488 GTB. This represents a 50 PS increase from the 488 GTB, while torque is also slightly higher by 10 Nm.
A new version of Ferrari's Side-Slip Angle Control system, now up to v6.0, adds the Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer (FDE) into the mix. That's also rumoured to be the new 488's power figure, though we'll wait to see what Ferrari says on that account.
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.
