The 488 Pista will accelerate from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds and from 0-200 km/h (124 mph) in just 7.6 seconds. It has a top speed of 340 km/h (211 mph). For the first time ever on a road-going Ferrari, the 488 Pista will be fitted with 20″ carbon fiber rims. The suspension set-up is completed by new tires developed specifically for the car by Michelin. Other carbon-fibre parts include the engine cover, bumpers and rear spoiler.
Ferrari’s objective was to make the car’s performance on the limit easier to reach and control for any driver. This was achieved by synergies between the development of the mechanical set-up and the electronic dynamic controls integrated into version 6 of the Side-Slip Angle Control system. SSC 6.0 incorporates all the following systems: E-Diff3, F1-Trac, the magnetorheological suspension (SCM) and, for the first time ever, the Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer. The FDE features a world-first: it uses Ferrari software to adjust the brake pressure at the callipers. This additional level of control fine-tunes the 488 Pista’s performance around corners making the car’s handling even more intuitive and predictable.
The Ferrari 488 Pista will be unveiled at the 88th Geneva International Motor Show on March 6th.
