FER­RARI show­cased the per­for­mance ver­sion of the 488 GTB called the 488 Pista. It is pow­ered by Fer­rari’s most pow­er­ful V8 en­gine with the 3.9-litre tur­bocharged pow­er­plant pro­duc­ing 711bhp max and peak torque of 770Nm. It boasts of per­for­mance fig­ures of a 0-100kmph ac­cel­er­a­tion time of 2.8 sec­onds, that is com­pa­ra­ble to the of­fi­cial La Fer­rari fig­ure of un­der 3.0 sec­onds, and a top speed of 340kmph. The per­for­mance boost is achieved by low­er­ing the weight of the stan­dard 488 GTB by a huge 90kg and at the same time boost­ing power by nearly 50bhp. Al­though peak torque is also higher, torque is higher at every point of the rev range. A 20 per­cent in­crease in down force also adds to the 488 Pista’s su­perla­tive per­for­mance.
