This is the new Ferrari 488 Pista at the Geneva International Motor Show 2018. This car follows in the footsteps of the Ferrari Challenge Stradale, 430 Scuderia and 458 Speciale.

The 488 Pista is 90 kg lighter than a normal 488 GTB thanks to the use of titanium con-rods, exhaust manifolds (made from inconel) and the extensive use of carbon-fibre for the bonnet, front/rear bumpers and the rear spoiler.

The new rear spoiler is 30mm higher and 40 mm longer than the standard 488.

Ferrari have used aerodynamics……..which are inspired by racing from the 488 GTE and F1.

It has a brand new S-Duct at the front- which takes air from an air intake on the front bumper, then it passes through the new air duct exiting through a vent on the bonnet. This creates down force on the front axle.
