Ferrari 488 Pista Spider is the convertible with the most powerful Ferrari V8 ever

Although I'm not a big Ferrari guy in principle, I refuse to apologize for how much I liked 458 Italy and now its turbocharged successor, 488. And the new 488 Pista is the one you want because it boasts of Ferrari's most powerful V8 engine ever, rated at 711 horsepower. Now this weekend at Pebble Beach, we were treated to 488 Pista's Convertible Spider variant. I can think of worse ways to work with your tan.

According to a press release, Ferrari said that it was 488 Pista Spider in the United States, including an America-appropriate white and blue color scheme – "was a natural choice, assuming North American clients have always been keenly connoisseurs of high-performing convertibles since 1950

Ferrari says that this car, like Hardtop Pista, has been developed with knowledge from 488 Challenge and 488 GTE race cars. The 3.9-liter twin turbo V8 puts out the aforementioned 711 HP and 568 lb-ft of torque, numbers that are hard to argue for. Even more difficult to argue with is the relatively lightweight basket weight of 3.042 pounds, or the fact that it will do nothing at 60 km / h in just 2.85 seconds . (Of course, Ferrari says that these power numbers are hard to get 98 octane gas, but I'm sure it's going well on Premium.)

To make it feel even more a race car, Ferrari has draped the interior with Alcantara and carbon fiber, replaced g woolen mats out with aluminum plates and replaced door handles with simple leather straps. Have you not always thought the door handles were unnecessary? It's great to see someone agree here.

Nevertheless, I dig Pista. You should buy three of them.
