Two months after it debuted in Switzerland and the internet is already filled with all kinds of videos starring the new Ferrari 488 Pista.
So far, we already know that it’s an absolute peach to drive, and that it’s extremely fast in its natural habitat: the track – after all, ‘Pista‘ is Italian for ‘track’.
Accompanying the official pictures from its debut were initial specs released by Ferrari. 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in 2.85sec, 0-200km/h (0-124mph) in 7.6sec and a top speed in excess of 340km/h (211mph).
We’ll only focus on the 0-100km/h (0-62mph) part, for now at least, because it appears that under ideal conditions, the Ferrari 488 Pista is a hair quicker. How much you ask? Well, according to a video shared by ArabGT, 2.26sec fast to 100km/h (62mph). The Italian supercar eventually reached 200km/h (124mph) after 6:94 seconds, while at 232km/h (144mph), the driver stepped on the brake.
Since it’s not an official video, we’re not sure how accurate these readings are, but we cannot help compare them to the Bugatti Chiron, which takes “less than 2.5sec” to reach 100km/h (62mph), from a standstill.
In theory at least, the Ferrari 488 Pista would eat the Lamborghini Huracan Performante for breakfast. But is it faster than the Porsche 911 GT2 RS on the Nurburgring? Here’s to seeing it in action on the famous German circuit sooner rather than later.
