    Ferrari claims a kerb weight of 1390 kg. Porsche claims a DIN Kerb (might be a small difference) of 1470. There is no underrating (it's illegal but then again that hasn't stopped the Germans in other cases...) and the claimed straightline performance is in Ferrari's favour (7.6 vs 8.3 for the 0-200 kph). I guess we 'll have to wait and see...

    Can't wait to have the online configurator, but I guess we will need at least 1 month....

    Shmee just mentioned the Fiorano lap to be 1:21.5. TDF is 1:21.

    The standard 488GTB is quicker around Fiorano than the 812. That’s not realy a secret as anyone whom has driven a car around Fiorana can attest to that.
    I expect the Pista to dwarf the TDF around Fiorano and beat the Laferrari.

    The videos on the aerodynamics published by Ferrari on the 488 Pista website is quite interesting.

    Also...did anyone notice the water going up the windscreen from the S-duct in the intro video?

    It was mentioned on the Autocar video. And the optional carbon wheels are a pretty cool £18k.

    If it were quicker than the tdf around Fiorano they would have said so. They didn't have a problem admitting it when the Speciale beat the 599 GTO for example. Let's leave the LF out of this; that's on another level altogether.

    I hope so... At least some fun for us non-owners. I was disappointed by the lack of configurator for the recent LE cars, especially the Tdf...

    So 1:21.50 around Fiorano according to Shmee on his video. That's 0.5 sec behind the F12 TDF and 1.5s faster than the regular 488 GTB...not bad.

    Edit: Didn't see this info was already posted above. My bad.

    I have to admit Schmee did an excellent job, very succinct and crisp, hit most of the high points.
    I'm a little confused about the side vents vs those near the rear wing and what they feed however.

    A lot of people give him too much of a hard time imo and not just here on Fchat, but other forums and in his YouTube comments. He takes the time to put together these videos quickly and provides a decent amount of info and footage. While not as cinematic as some car review magazines, he gets them out quickly for those of us that want to see this stuff asap. His Valkyrie video in particular is one of my favorites for that reason.

    I agree. I judge Shmee's videos for what they are and what he does. I can understand how he might turn off some people with his overly sunny demeanor, but I think he provides straight forward glimpses into these cars. Overall, I enjoy his videos, and I think if you don't like them, then don't watch them. No need to try to attack his character.

    Anyway, I really enjoyed his 488 Pista video.

    Always liked his videos. He seems like a nice enough guy. What’s to attack?

    So apprently now we know which are the carbon fiber option that ar not standard apart from the rims....so far the back part of the car below the spoiler (between the lights) and also the floor inside the car...enteresting.....and from the official 488 pista site there is, in the design option, a sort of slide where you can see the full dashboard in carbon fiber or you can go just for the vents....I'm not really fan of the matt carbon fiber so I guess I will go for "shiny" one.

    I need a configurator asap!!

    Interesting there is a door pull on the driver’s side but not the passenger’s side. Not sure how that makes sense.
