    Weird name although I know the meaning of it...just doesn't roll off the tongue well. The car looks amazing though! I love that front bumper. It's way better than the standard 488. All of the limited edition mid-engine V8s have managed to make a nice improvement in that department.

    I noticed on the official Ferrari site about the 488 Pista's 720 HP theres an **astrik**....... at the bottom it says 98 Octane. Not sure the fuel quality in Europe but thats damn near race fuel in North America. When I was in Los Angelas they had 100 Octane at a few pumps that had chequered flags and said race fuel.

    I can't say I've ever been so enamored with a new Ferrari based on Ferrari's official (and often silly) photoshopped photos as I am with those of the 488 Pista. Gorgeous!!

    98 octane calculated in what way? RON, MON, or AKI (average of RON + MON)? That 98 you quote could very well be just same as 93 octane in the US (AKI). I think Europe uses RON so their octane looks higher, but it's the same which probably explains that.

    I respect what Ferrari has done. The build up, today’s meeting, and (of course) the 488 Pista.

    I love it and I need one!

    I'm pretty sure every black piece on the front spoiler, side apron, vents, rear diffuser and engine bay can be fitted with carbon fiber for some big $$$$$$$$$

    What do they mean by braking enhancer using software to adjust pressure at the caliper? Automatically goes to max braking force? Sounds interesting but maybe little bit self driving too.

    It's interesting the sound clips they used, the first half of the video sounds like a Lambo V10, then converts to a IMSA Corvette V8, then I hear a little F430. There was a brief portion that sounded 488, but overall it doesn't seem realistic.

    I was thinking the same thing. The sound is very synthetic. Worse yet, they overwhelm the engine sound with loud music throughout most of the video. A bit concerning.

    For all those who attended and thought the sound was synthetic and concerning would you consider passing up your allocation?? :). Food for thought!

    CF wheels are a $28K aussie dollar option, and cannot be easily repaired, if at all, if curbed or damaged. I much prefer the standard wheel revealed in today's dealer presentation video in what looked like a Grigio Corsa colour (which is optional).

    Have you got Australian pricing/spec yet? At the preso this morning the dealer thought they would get it today, but I haven't heard anything yet.

    28k AUS? That's all? Per wheel? :)

    In terms of looks, I prefer the standard ones too, TBH.

    I agree. You probably won’t be able to tell they’re carbon wheels since they’ll likely be painted black. Plus, I don’t want to have a panic attack every time I hit a pothole.
