Ferrari 488 Pista , a hopped-up variant that is the most powerful road-going V8 in Ferrari history. 2018 Mazda6 2.5T First Drive Review . We like driving Mazdas, even if it’s not the Miata, because they’ve always got an underpinning

By Matt April 2, 2018 Car Reviews , Cars No Comments. After we drove the Ferrari 488 Pista we realized the same that it is an uplift version of the standard 488 . There have been too many changes made to this car.

What is it?

There are two sports cars they just don’t get wrong. Most manufacturers, even these ones, occasionally turn out a duffer, but in the case of two vehicles – the GT3 RS version of a Porsche 911, and the special series version of Ferrari’s mid-engined V8 – they don’t miss a trick.

This is, I suspect, because they’re engineers’ cars. Purists’ cars. The first 911 GT3 RS in 2003 only came about because Porsche needed to homologate two suspension links for racing. And the first mid-engined Ferrari special, the 360 Challenge Stradale, also of 2003, helped justify the Challenge race series. Throughout their iterations since, they haven’t missed a beat.

Pista means track, or, apparently, ‘get out of the way!’, but I suppose either is appropriate enough. The requisite link to motorsport is there, anyway. The Pista’s engine is – like a GT3 RS’s – effectively a race car motor, here from the 488 Challenge car.

Atletico Madrid join Chelsea in the race to sign Gonzalo Higuain

  Atletico Madrid join Chelsea in the race to sign Gonzalo Higuain Chelsea will reportedly face competition from Atletico Madrid in their pursuit of Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain this summer. The Blues have been heavily linked with a move for the Argentine international, with his future at Serie A champions Juventus continuing to come under some scrutiny. This has led to talk indicating that he could make a move to Stamford Bridge this summer. However, according to reports in Italy, a new suitor has emerged in the race to land Higuain. Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid side are understood to have identified Higuain as a potential target as they make contingency plans ahead of the likely departure of Antoine Griezmann. The Frenchman has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona this summer and it seems plans are being put in place ahead of his exit. Chelsea are looking to recruit a new first-choice striker and Higuain has been mentioned as a target for the Blues following Alvaro Morata’s struggles last season.

It was always in the plan that way: develop an engine that makes 50bhp more than the standard 488 GTB, prove it in the one-make racing series car, and eventually drop it into the ‘special’ variant. Special doesn’t mean totally limited in production number; it’ll join the rest of the 488 range while that’s still on sale, albeit at relatively low volume.

It retains a 3.9-litre V8 but now makes 710bhp at the same 8000rpm rev-limiter, and 568lb ft at 3000rpm, but only in seventh gear – torque is limited in lower gears to make what, since its launch, has been the best sporty turbocharged engine in the world feel less turbocharged, more naturally-aspirated.

This Ferrari just became the most expensive car ever sold

  This Ferrari just became the most expensive car ever sold The 1963 Ferrari GTO — one of only 36 that were made by Ferrari — was sold in a private deal, according to Marcel Massini, the world's top collectible Ferrari expert. Sources said the car was sold by a German collector to David MacNeil, the founder of WeatherTech, the maker of car floor mats.Previously the highest price for a car was $52 million, paid for another 1963 Ferrari GTO in 2013.

Well, they’re still tweaking them: while the time between clutch activation isn’t being reduced much (there’s not much to reduce), there’s now an overboost on upshifts, and in the appropriate aggressive drive mode – a dial on the steering wheel scrolls through them – it punches downshifts in racier fashion, with more engine braking than before.

Specify the right options – including carbonfibre wheels at over £10,000 – and the Pista can weigh as little as 1358kg (kerb, not dry), up to 90kg less than a GTB. McLaren reckons a 675 LT is 1320kg at the kerb which, having a carbon fibre tub rather than an aluminium structure, sounds about right.

Ferrari 488 Pista 2018 review © Autocar Ferrari 488 Pista 2018 review The Pista does get carbon fibre, though: for the bonnet, bumpers, intake plenum and rear spoiler; part of a raft of weight-saving additions that include an Inconel exhaust, lighter flywheel, a lithium battery and titanium conrods.

Among the bodywork modifications, which have shades of Ford GT – perhaps unsurprisingly, given that’s a car entirely developed for endurance racing – there’s an S-duct at the front and a higher, longer wing at the back.

The result is 20% more downforce than a 488 GTB, 240kg at 124mph, with only a 2% increase in drag. The weight and the power and the aero and a newly-developed Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyre (which leaves rubber on the road in rather more places than you’d realistically expect, so Lord knows how soft they are) mean that the Pista is lighter, faster and more aggressive than the 488 GTB everywhere.

Ferrari 488 Pista 2018 review © Autocar Ferrari 488 Pista 2018 review But it is not, says Ferrari’s leading GT engineer, Raffaele de Simone, any more difficult to drive. This is not a car like the F12 Tdf or the 599 GTO, which you might kindly describe as a right old handful.

It’s meant to be just as playful and accommodating as a regular 488 GTB, says de Simone, which, given the GTB has 661bhp and is almost as docile a Toyota GT86, would be quite an achievement given its power output now starts with a seven.

But, well, turns out he’s right. This car. Chuffing hell.

What is it like?

Our first go, as it sometimes is, is around Ferrari’s Fiorano test track. The Pista is said to be two seconds faster than a 458 Speciale around here which, given a Speciale’s lap time is only 83.5 seconds, is a leap. It’s in a different performance stratosphere to the Speciale: 0-62mph is 2.85sec (Speciale 3.0sec) and 124mph in 7.6sec (Speciale 9.1sec). 

BMW X3 M40i 2018 UK review

  BMW X3 M40i 2018 UK review BMW brings a more restrained take on the performance SUV to rival the Porsche Macan S and Mercedes-AMG GLC 43In a world where it seems like performance SUVs are becoming increasingly flashier, ostentatious and — in some cases — downright vulgar, the new BMW X3 M40i arrives as a refreshingly restrained, flies-under-the-radar take on what a fast 4x4 can be.

But it does not take long to realise that the Pista is no more frightening than a GTB, but merely faster, everywhere. The steering rack, ratio, everything, is the same as a GTB’s. Anti-roll bars are unchanged and while there is a stiffening of springs, it’s minor and only comes with a marginal decrease in ride height.

Carbonfibre wheel option costs more than £10,000 © Autocar Carbonfibre wheel option costs more than £10,000 The GTB’s friendly nature, then, is largely intact. In fact, because of the new tyres, which have stiffer sidewalls, steering response – Ferraris use a really quick, light, 2.0-turn rack, and McLaren and Porsche usually do it better – is if anything less nervous, more stable.

So it is just as accessible, but way, way, faster. The reduction in kerb weight means that a car that was already willing to turn is even more agile. 

Ferrari uses an e-differential and Ferrari’s latest-generation ‘side slip control’ program involves even more software, so if you turn-in sensibly, the diff stays relatively unwound, the Pista rotates beautifully and, as you come back on the power, it drives the Pista brilliantly, breaking traction easily if you have traction control off, but with the side-slip control system allowing a lovely degree of adjustability.

Ferrari 488 Pista 2018 review © Autocar Ferrari 488 Pista 2018 review Turn everything off and the Pista’s character is still docile. Peak torque – and there’s 568lb ft of it – comes in at just 3000rpm, the car revs to the same 8000rpm as the GTB and throttle response is better than any other turbocharged car’s, of that I’m pretty certain. So it’s just brilliantly adjustable and responsive.

What’s perhaps more remarkable is that this comes without any huge detriment to the experience on the road.

Well, to the ride, at least: there’s a lot of road noise, owing to a lack of carpet and other sound proofing, so along with tyre road you can hear stones being flicked up and chattering into the body, while the air-conditioning struggles on anything except its most shouty setting and the extended front and rear body addenda give you more than usual to think about on slopes and speed ramps.

But the dampers retain two settings and, even on the firmer one, the Pista is far from unsettled on twisty hillside roads. On the softer ‘bumpy road’ setting it’s remarkably compliant, yet controlled. 

The roads we drove the 488 Pista on are part of Ferrari’s development driver’s test route, so you can see why the steering ends up being so fast – you seldom need to take your hands off the wheel on hairpins – but it also explains why Ferrari likes using an e-differential.

That, while heavier than a pure mechanical differential, or an open one (like a McLaren), unlocks to ease tight corner entry, locks-up to provide brilliant exit-straightening. 

Ferrari 488 Pista 2018 review © Autocar Ferrari 488 Pista 2018 review These roads would really expose some laggy, harshly sprung track specials, but the Pista is brilliant here, riding with deftness, cornering with composure and loads of feel and finesse. It’ll understeer if you’re clumsy, spin its wheels more than you expect if you’re lead-footed, but generally it’s more approachable and playful than its competitors.

And while its engine – which revs to 8000rpm – is less intoxicating, to my ears, than Porsche’s naturally aspirated 9000rpm GT3 RS unit and the Lamborghini Huracan Performante’s V10, it has the measure of the 911 GT2 RS and any current McLaren.

More than that, though, it helps exploit one of the greatest chassis in the business. 

Ferrari don't usually get its track cars wrong © Autocar Ferrari don't usually get its track cars wrong Should I buy one?

The chassis of the 488 Pista doesn’t feel night-and-day different to the regular GTB, which is a car that, for me, anyway, is still preferable to a McLaren 720S (though I’m in a minority on this website). This feels like GTB +20%, rather than a different animal. Put carpets and inertia-reel belts rather than harnesses in it and could even just be the next 488, rather than a motorsport-derived special. 

That, though, is important to those who buy them. V8 Ferrari owners, even track special V8 Ferrari owners, do not tend to live on race tracks like owners of, say, GT3 RS Porsches. They’ll go once or twice, just to remind themselves they’ve made the right decision. I imagine that won’t take long.

About three corners ought to do it.
