Special Ferrari 488 Pista Celebrates Racing Success

Road-going car receives new livery

We recently drove the Ferrari 488 Pista, and it left us wanting more. After all, it's the most powerful road-going V-8 ever built by the Prancing Horse. Now, the automaker is rolling out a "Piloti Ferrari" version, featuring the same performance with cosmetic updates. The special model is available exclusively for customers involved in Ferrari's motorsports programs, and it celebrates the brand's success in the FIA World Endurance Championship last year.

The "Piloti Ferrari" 488 Pista features stripes in the colors of the Italian flag. This detail points to the racing version of the 488 GTE. Other details include a laurel celebrating the WEC win, PRO badging to indicate the class the winning car raced in, a matte black S-Duct, and natural carbon fiber dovetail suspended rear spoiler and vent surrounds. Each customer will also be able to put their specific race number on the car. The vehicle pictured features the number "51," honoring the car that won the WEC Drivers' and Manufacturers' titles last year. Buyers can choose between four exterior colors: Rosso Corsa, Blu Tour De France, Nero Daytona, and Argento N rburgring.

Peek inside the cabin and you'll find black Alcantara seats that also pay homage to the Italian flag. The number shown on the car's exterior also appears on the base of the steering wheel. There is a unique identification plate and "Tailor Made" badging as well.

The Ferrari 488 Pista features a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V-8 that makes 710 hp and 567 lb-ft of torque. It has the best weight-to-power ratio of any road-going Ferrari, and it sheds around 200 pounds over the standard 488 GTB.
