Ferrari 488 Pista LEAKED pictures reveal car's aggressive design and incredible performanc

The new auto will be known as a 488 Pista and come with 711 horsepower.

Pista is Italian for race track which means that the Ferrari 488 Pista should be a delight on the tracks.

Further modifications include a more powerful version of the 488 Challenge's lightweight 3.9-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine that is expected to produce near 538kW of power and 770nm of torque and met with an nearly 100kg reduction in heft, bringing the vehicle's total weight to 1279kg - power, torque and weight specifications nearly exactly in-line with the carbon-fibre chassis 720S. Ferrari also mentions that the exhaust note is louder than that of the 488 GTB. The race auto also contributes its turbos with integrated rev sensors as well as the design of its air intake line - moved from the flanks to the rear spoiler area.

That engine will have less mass to push around, too, with Motor Authority reporting that the Ferrari 488 Pista will benefit from a dry weight of just 2,821 pounds - down from the 3,020 pounds of the regular 488 GTB.

This extra power and weight-saving means that the auto can apparently go from 0-62mph in just 2.8 seconds and have a top speed of 211mph.

Ferrari's sixth version of its Side-Slip Angle Control (SSC) system is present to tame all that power, and includes the following systems: E-Diff3, F1-Trac, magnetorheological suspension (SCM) and, for the first time ever, the Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer (FDE).

If the revised exterior wasn't an obvious giveaway, the 488 Pista was designed with aerodynamic performance in mind. At the front, the splitter runs with the same ramp angle as the 488 GTE racer, while an F1-style "S-duct" draws air from the underside of the nose and feeds it out the giant new vent in the bonnet. The bodywork's revisions include using the front and rear diffusers from the 488 GTE racing auto, there are lighter wheels and carbon-fibre has been used extensively throughout the vehicle to help reduce weight.

Elsewhere, the dolphin-tail rear spoiler is higher and longer than the one found on the 488 GTB, and is made from carbon-fibre. A set of specially-developed Michelin tyres are also part of the package.

Inside, the Pista does without floor mats and shows a carbon-fibre foot well with an inspired shift selector on the centre console a la LaFerrari. In Italian, pista stands for track. The 488 Pista will celebrate its public debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in March.
