Ferrari started the ultimate evolution of their mid-engined V8 sports cars with the 348 GT Competizione in 1993. Ten years later, the launch of 360 Challenge Stradale in 2003 spurned a more regular line of successors. Pared-back, lighter and more powerful, the special iterated through the 430 Scuderia and 458 Speciale. The launch of 488 Pista marks a monstrous leap in performance. Aspiration change means the now smaller-displacement V8 benefits from two turbochargers. Whilst the Speciale made a not-to-be-sniffed- at 597bhp, the turbocharged Pista finds itself with a warp speed-enabling 710bhp.

Aerodynamic revisions and extensive weight loss see the car some 90kg down over the standard 488 GTB, whilst downforce is up 20% with no drag penalty. The 3.9 litre V8 gains an Inconel exhaust manifold, lightened flywheel, titanium conrods, lightweight cylinder liners, new valves and valve springs. 18kg of this weight loss alone comes from changes to the engine. Fantastically for a turbocharged engine, peak power is made between 6,750rpm and the 8,000rpm limiter. 568lbft of torque is electronically governed depending on gear choice, providing a more linear delivery.

Following on from the success on the coupe, the Spider was launched with its folding metal roof offering a topless experience in just 14 seconds stowing neatly out of sight behind the rear seats.

This UK supplied car was purchased by its sole UK keeper in 2020 by Dick Lovett Ferrari. Specified in the historical hue of Grigio Ferro with the PNT7 racing livery finished in Extra-Campionario Blu Pozzi, an upgrade over the standard, metallic, Blu America.

Inside, this example is treated to extra-range Blu Scuro Alcantara seats with inner details in Nero and stitching in contrasting Grigio Chiaro. The car benefits from a wealth of options including carbon fibre front flaps, carbon fibre side air splitter, carbon fibre front air vents, carbon fibre underdoor cover, carbon fibre inner sill trim, carbon fibre centre caps, carbon fibre rear moulding, carbon fibre racing seats, carbon fibre rear diffuser, carbon fibre engine covers and carbon fibre outer B-post trim.

Additionally, this example benefits from front-axle lifting system, upgraded titanium exhaust, dark forged wheels, parking camera and both brake callipers and rev counter in Giallo.
