    Does not seem very impressive to me. Did they increase the power? Also Pista doesn't sound right. With all the nicely flowing Italian words, they could have done better.

    Such as? Make you suggestions but be aware there is a finite number and most have been discussed before, probably even by Ferrari themselves ;)

    White with black stripe looks killers. I bet in a triple layer even better. If I get lucky enough to get one I may do a triple layer red with triple layer white land black stripe.

    I will wait to make my final opinion until I see one in person, but I don't think it looks as good as the Speciale. That being said, it looks fantastic and much better than the regular 488. I absolutely love the spoiler...

    Nothing I don't like about the 488 Pista. Looks great, will drive like you won't believe it. Agree on the front end with cues from the J50 but that's certainly not a bad thing in my opinion. Well done Ferrari.

    Sorta. Just the lower facia but different treatment towards the wheels and especially not the hood or lights.

    While some posters have said that the body changes are minimal when compared to those of the 458 Speciale from the Italia, I disagree. The changes are significant and, in the main, an improvement of the 488 design. I particularly like the rear-end treatment and the changes to the large side vents. Real-world photos from all angles, and especially in-person viewing, will determine how successful the re-design has been. Fred

    I'm sure it will be a beast on the track. Just not crazy about the odd hood. I'm sure the S-Duct creates a lot of downforce, but at a great sacrifice to design and beauty.

    100% Agree. IMO, the Speciale is just untouchable :)

    “Pista” means “track,” but the Ferrari marketing people are either very confident or delusional that the name will be well-accepted.

    Car looks great though.

    Attended the preview at my dealer last night. Very nice and small gathering. I love the car. I also love my 488 GTB, so I have to think about this. I won’t be keeping both.

    Love the front, less the back. Let's hope the performance justifies all the aero mods.

    Definitely the stripe fools your (my) brain into thinking the car shape is that of the stripe. Makes the front part of the hood (wing-like/bumper part) less noticeable. Especially in this view.
