Ferrari 488 Pista on the track
The Ferrari 488 represents a new chapter in the history of Prancing Horse V8-powered supercars. It takes its inspiration from a classic Ferrari model designation — the 308 GTB and F40 — and the Ferrari 488’s specs showcase its world-class capability. As a return to the classic naming convention, there’s a nod to the past; but with up to 661 horsepower, this track-focused supercar blazes a trail into the future.
