    It's no secret that I really missed my 488 and tried to find one to my specification but opted to order the F-8. I have been looking for several years for the right Pista. I have been close to a deal but decided to not compromise what I wanted. The F-8 is still on order and I very much appreciate how the Pista and F-8 are different from owners who experienced both, thank you very much. Bad timing but this one showed up and being the right color Rosso Scuderia with all the options I would have selected, it was a go. I still have my F-8 on order but suggested that the dealership could slide my order several months and that was done. Ever since seeing in person the details of the Pista, I was hoping I could sometime find one. I have not been this excited knowing this one was finally mine. Thank you all for your advise, I could not have done this without your comments.

    You might find your F8’ redundant......good choice with Scuderia Rosso and Argento/black stripes.

    Thank you all for your comments! Many many thanks for all who helped me navigate this long search.
    After a 40 mile ride this morning, I am sure I made the right choice! I just enjoy the V-8 Mid-Engine experience.
    Like my 458, 488 and 812, I had Continental plug/disconnecte the vacuum lines. This really enhances the sound.

    Congrats on the Pista! Beautiful spec. Friends of mine that have both the V12’s and mid engine V8’s have all commented that they strongly prefer the way the mid engine V8 drives. Great choice.

    I test drove an 812, thinking I would want to add it. I passed as I also preferred the v8 mid engine drive.

    When I test drove the 812 a year ago, I should have just paid over MSRP on several Pista's that were available. I would have been better off price wise.
