Meet the Ferrari 488 Pista and its 711-HP V-8

Starting with the one everybody talks about at the moment, the 0-62 miles per hour (0-100 km/h) acceleration time, the Pista only needs 2.85 seconds to clear it.

As you'd expect the 488 Pista is no slouch with it only needing 2.85 seconds to reach 62 miles per hour and 7.6 seconds to reach 124 miles per hour. The Pista gets a 709bhp engine derived from the 488 Challenge racecar, and will also feature newly revised bodywork working towards maximising downforce and reduce drag.

After a leak which uncovered Ferrari's most eagerly-anticipated model a little early, the Italian marque has just debuted the hardcore Ferrari 488 Pista online.

Official press images of the new and potentially final 488 model were posted on Ferrari Chat and appear legitimate, given they replicate details in teaser images shared by Ferrari on its own Facebook page last week. Ferrari isn't saying when the Pista will go on sale, or how much it will cost.

With the Pista name's literal translation, it's pretty clear Ferrari is aiming this vehicle directly at track enthusiasts, and probably wants to show the guys in Woking a thing or two in the process. Thanks to nifty weight-saving mods, the 488 Pista's dry weight comes in at 2,821 pounds, down on the 3,020 pounds of the 488 GTB. The front end has a new diffuser inspired by the 488 GTE's, while the rear diffuser also benefits from development of the GTE racing vehicle. To compare, the 488 GTB takes 3 seconds to reach 100km/h and has a top speed of "only" 330km/h. Other carbon-fibre parts include the engine cover and bumpers, but for a little extra, Ferrari will offer 20-inch carbon-fibre wheels as well. The 488 Pista isn't just sleeker, either, it produces 20 percent greater downforce than the GTB, in part courtesy of a Formula 1-style S-duct, which reroutes air from beneath the vehicle to above. Along with a host of fresh track-spec upgrades, for the first time ever, the company has introduced the Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer in the 488 Pista. 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.

Like the 458 Speciale that came before it, there's also a red white and blue decal running the length of the auto - though that was revealed as part of the teaser video earlier this month.
