Azzurro Dino Ferrari 488 Pista Reminds Us Of The IKEA Colors

While most current Ferrari models look good painted red, we do enjoy seeing customers opting to have their Prancing Horses painted in more eye-catching colors. Take this Ferrari 488 Pista, for example.

The color adorning this Ferrari is dubbed Azzurro Dino blue and was made famous by a prolific car collector in the Middle East who owns a fleet of Prancing Horses painted in this color, including a F40, LaFerrari, Enzo, and others. We’ve also seen some other examples painted this color, including a rare F12tdf.

To ensure the car really stands out, the blue paint has been contrasted by expensive yellow racing stripes running down the center of the mid-engine supercar. Depending on the market, these racing stripes cost upwards of $13,000, so it’s understandable why a customer would want to make them stand out for that kind of money.

In addition to the blue and yellow covering most of the Italian supercar’s exterior, this example also includes gloss carbon fiber parts and silver wheels. We’re not sold on the color combination, however, as it somewhat reminds us of the colors used by IKEA, even though the shade of blue is a touch lighter on the Ferrari.

Fortunately, the car’s insane powertrain more than makes up for the controversial exterior. Sitting at the heart of the car is a twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8 engine pumping out 711 hp and 568 lb-ft (770 Nm) of torque. This allows the vehicle to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in a brisk 2.85 seconds, 124 mph (200 km/h) in 7.6 seconds, and a top speed exceeding 211 mph (340 km/h).

    The build quality and poor durability on that Ferrari also reminds me of IKEA.

    • Matt

      Nothing wrong with the build quality of modern Ferrari’s. Another inaccurate stereotype…

    something Bugatti about this blue

  • Stigasawuswrecks

    Shmee150 already did a video with the dude and they drive it to Ikea as a joke.

    • Gabri

      not the same pista obviously!

      • Stigasawuswrecks

        I’m pretty sure since the video was shot in London and both are 100% identical.

  • Ben

    Spectacular blue. I would have spec’d Red strips outlined in white.

    • Six_Tymes

      i can imagine that, that would look really great

  • Wandering_Spirit

    That blue has long been a staple in Ferrari’s palette. Just underrated. They also have a gorgeous metal blue, darker. The real dealbreaker is the yellow stripe.

  • SteersUright

    The C8 should’ve just aped this design, its a damn near perfect looking mid-engine car. The rear end of this Pista is SOOO much better resolved than the Corvette’s. Anyhow, back on topic, gorgeous car, gorgeous blue, terrible stripes.

    • Ben

      Who do you think they are, Hyundai/Genesis!?

    • Mike anonymous

      I actually did a few edits to the design (not professional level renders, but just seeing what I could do to make some fixes (that could actually be done) to the C8. I don’t think the current C8 is bad, its’ just not my particular flavor,.. although with the right additions or subtractions, it certainly could be.

      (P.S. I likely going to post all the versions I made on the next major C8 article (including edits to the back and exhaust to match my edit here), but until then I suppose I could show you what I’ve done do far).

      Oh.. and regarding the Ferrari; I’ve seen a few in person, I am sure one in Blue as such would be great. Agreed.

        C8 is a typical cheap American sort of sorts car designed for old Americans who have no idea about quality and performance from a real sportscar. Toyota 86 is a far better cartoon a C8.

        • Stigasawuswrecks

          How much meth did you smoke before you posted this?

  • Gabri

    you want an Ikea 488 Pista Edition? look no further than TGE’s Pista!

  • Bo Hanan

    What an annoying commentator.

    Looks really cheap, just like a Corvette C8, cheap and tasteless.
