Ferrari 488 Pista Hits 62Mph Faster Than A Bugatti Chiron?

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.

    That’s insane.

  • Jay D

    <3.0s with rwd car is insane.How is it doing 2.2 lol. 0-200 is almost believable.Not sure about that 0-60.

  • Six_Tymes

    love this car. this video ripped off that GT logo. Why don’t they know how to create something original?

  • Honda NSX-R

    Doubt

  • Erzhik

    Sorry, but it’s kinda dumb to compare any supercar’s 0-60 run again Chiron because Chiron is not built for 0-60 runs, it’s heavy AF. It is also not built for track days or 1/4mile runs, just for future references. Chiron as Veyron are both built for top speed travel in pure luxury that even RR will have a hard time matching.

    • Jason Panamera

      It’s made for taking over every ordinary ferrari and lambo on the autobahn.

    • Six_Tymes

      yep, and I think everyone knows that, except for the person who wrote the story. lol

  • Truenorth 1960

    I was under the impression Ferrari didn’t do Nurburgring.

  • Balcis

    and it’s rwd.

  • Some ol’ bloke

    They say it is a 720s killer, but actually, on a track, it would be pretty even, and in a drag race, the 0-200 time is quicker on the 720s, so I disagree. Still, that is quite insane!

  • Yoda

    Wrong time. The clock start after the car launch.

  • Some ol’ bloke

    those are the official specs, but the Ferrari and McLaren Will probably do faster than that.
