During the world-famous Concours d’Elegance at Pebble Beach, Ferrari unveiled its 50thdrop top Prancing Horse: the 488 Pista Spider. With its engine, dynamics and aerodynamics deriving from the 488 Challenge and the 488 GTE track cars, this Special Series spider model represents the natural development from the Pista Coupe.

Just like the coupe, the car mounts the most powerful Ferrari V8 engine ever, named Best Engine in the world. The 3902cc twin-turbo V8 unleashes a monstrous 711bhp and combines that power with increasing torque at all engine speeds for endless acceleration and zero turbo lag. The unique engine sound is now even more riveting thanks to the open-top configuration.


A Closer Look Into the 488 Pista Spider

The Centro Stile designers’ primary objective was to maintain the balanced marriage of aerodynamic efficiency, purity of form and racing spirit achieved by the 488 Pista.

Exterior design was certainly guided by aerodynamic demands; the result was a significant 20% increase in aero efficiency over the 488 Spider. The most notable features include the “S” duct that has been incorporated into the bonnet to create additional downforce but also virtually shortens the nose of the car. On the opposite end, additional downforce is provided by the larger, fixed dolphin spoiler that appears to be suspended over the rear deck lid. Underneath the paint lays a carbon fiber engine cover, front bumper and rear bumper which reduce weight that is far from the center of gravity, thus helping improve agility.

The engineering of the 488 Pista Spider powertrain translates all the racing experience gathered on world’s circuits with the 488 Challenge and the 488 GTE. As a result, the new Spider offers the highest level of technological transfer from the track to a road-legal open air car.

The vehicle dynamics developed for this Special Series convertible deliver a seamless combination of exhilarating acceleration, braking efficiency, lightning-fast gear shifting, precision steering, grip, stability and superb handling. The result? A completely captivating driving experience. The Pista Spider lapped Fiorano in 1’21.50, exactly like the Pista Coupe and the 812 Superfast and second only to the LaFerrari and F12tdf.

On the interior, simplicity and weight-cutting was the driving design factor. The cockpit has been trimmed down – now featuring door handle pulls and aluminum floors- to create a functionally sporty feel, which is further accentuated with technical materials like carbon fiber and alcantara.
