Silver Ferrari 488 Pista With Red Carbon Accents Will Leave You Breathless

Sometimes its worth doing things a little differently – and when it came to speccing out a Ferrari 488 Pista, that’s exactly what the owner of this example did.

Whereas most Ferraris are finished in red or yellow, this 488 Pista is finished in a glistening shade of silver. It is not the silver paint which makes this Ferrari stand out, though.

Those purchasing a 488 Pista have the option of a wide-ranging of exterior trimmings to make their vehicle stand out. This particular owner decided to have the mid-engine V8 supercar equipped with white and red racing stripes painted onto the bodywork and running from the front splitter over to the rear decklid.

From there, red carbon fiber accents are aplenty and can be found across parts of the front bumper, the rear bumper and the side skirts. What’s even more impressive is the fact that the owner was so committed to the silver and red carbon fiber theme that they opted to have red carbon spread throughout the engine bay as well. It looks incredible and surely makes this Pista unlike any other.

In recent years, colored carbon fiber has become very popular for owners of supercars and hypercars. Car manufacturers like Pagani, Koenigsegg and McLaren have become experts at painting carbon fiber to give the material some added flair. Developments have also been made in the world of carbon fiber in recent years to dye and color the material itself meaning painting carbon isn’t the only way to have it finished in different colors.

    Wow, that color is it for the Pista, it looks amazing.

    Sweet ride!

    I’m pretty sure it’s the clearcoat over the carbon fiber which has a tint to it. If there is another technique, it could be that a pigment is added to the resin directly, before the carbon fiber is even cured and clear coated.

    • Matteo Tommasi

      The fibre is colored before being sunk in the resin. It’s very cool to watch in person.

  • Bo Hanan

    This seems like someone took a random photo of the car on a street and a whole article was written about it…???

    Beautiful. And elegant. But given the money that went into this? I think most of us could do better than a single car with the money allocated to this

  • john1168

    Wow! It looks stunning in silver. If I was ever able to afford to buy a Ferrari, the last colors I’d get it in are red, white and black. Don’t get me wrong, they still look good in those colors but Ferrari has some amazing colors available.

  • Stigasawuswrecks

    That color scheme is perfect.

  • STEFAN LAUGENIE

    The color shade plus the stripes plus the red carbon make it look baroque in a Pagani way.
    And in that case, not in a good way. It lacks the elegance of the Ferraris of yore.
    Aggressiveness in the looks department is not always translated in desirability, sheer class and beauty.
    The 288 GTO will remain the most beautiful V8 berlinetta Ferrari has ever made.
    And there are signs it won’t change anytime soon.

    Usually silver doesn’t do it for me, but this Pista really looks good. The last colors i’d get on a Ferrari are red, yellow, and black, so this is something different.

  • Stephen G

    The color on a Ferrari is like just a little bit of makeup on Sophia Loren.

  • this is great. coloured carbo as accent colour on dull gray. I think it looks gorgeous.

  • Wandering_Spirit

    It does not look bad. It is even better than a classic Ferrari Red. The problem is that it looks childish in some way. I’d go for a plain gunmetal with some red or yellow accents in the brakes and the leather seams, maybe with a tobacco or dark red interior.
