Known History

An outstanding car, the Ferrari 458 Italia enjoyed a fine career from 2009 to 2015. It was part of the family of V8-engined Ferraris and, when it came to replacing it, the company had no room for error. Once again, it struck a decisive blow when, in February 2015, it unveiled a spectacular new model, the 488 GTB. This retained a V8 engine, but was now equipped with twin turbos, carrying on the tradition of the 288 GTO and the F40, two icons from the company's history. This time, however, Ferrari went further, taking the capacity to 3.9 litres and maximum power to 670 bhp at 8000 rpm, a speed reserved for the greatest, most sporting engines. The rest of the car was to match, and with its 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, this exceptional supercar could accelerate from 0-100 kph in just 3 seconds! At 330 kph, its top speed was on par with the best.

This marvellous powertrain received a body styled by Pininfarina, the coachbuilder whose loyalty to Ferrari was evident in its harmonious design and flowing, elegant shape, which was highly efficient aerodynamically.

 

Initially presented in GTB berlinetta guise, the 488 was soon offered in even more exclusive versions, including the 488 Pista that took its bow at the 2018 Geneva Show. As its name indicated, this model was specifically designed for track use, and Ferrari focused its work on improving its performance in three areas: weight, which was reduced by 90 kg (198 lb) compared with the GTB; power, which increased by 50 bhp to reach 720 bhp (making it the most powerful V8 in the company's history); and aerodynamics, with increased downforce. These changes allowed the car to accelerate faster and reach 100 kph (62 mph) in under 3 seconds, and to go on to a top speed of 340 kph (211 mph)! When it was launched, these figures took the 488 Pista to the top of its class, ahead of the equivalent models from Porsche and McLaren.

 

This Pista was delivered new to our client by the Ferrari dealer in Malmö to take its place alongside the other exceptional Ferraris and cars from other manufacturers in his collection. They are all displayed in his personal museum, where the temperature is set to 22°C throughout the year. Finished in “Blu America”, the car has natural-coloured leather seats with a lengthwise body-coloured stripe, beige Alcantara carpets and dashboard trim and no fewer than 40 options! As with his Pista Spider, the owner selected some very specific options, such as additional carbon fibre trim, titanium exhausts, a Bluetooth system with Apple CarPlay and countless options from Ferrari's Tailor Made programme. This racing car for the road has covered only 140 km since leaving the factory and will be supplied with all its original documentation.

Drawing on the experience in motorsport which Ferrari built up over several decades, the 488 Pista is brimming with technology and high performance, making it more than just a supercar. It is capable of posting the best times during a weekend on track, then calmly driving home ... And so it upholds the tradition of the greatest Ferraris in history.
