Some of the upgrades include modified air intakes, a new rear diffuser, and a rear blown spoiler. According to Ferrari, the Pista's development evolved directly from the automaker's involvement in the World Endurance Championship, where it races the 488 GTE.
With the Pista name's literal translation, it's pretty clear Ferrari is aiming this auto directly at track enthusiasts, and probably wants to show the guys in Woking a thing or two in the process.
It's new, it's called the 4XX Siracusa Spider, and it's also a mind-boggling example of how to ruin a flawlessly drawn Ferrari like the 488 Spider.
Ferrari has announced that its next V8-engined, more-focussed-than-usual vehicle - essentially successor to the 458 Speciale - will premiere at the Geneva Motor Show next month, and that it will be called the 488 Pista.
It's the already-leaked range-topper for its junior supercar range and continues the bloodline from the 360 Challenge Stradale, 430 Scuderia and 458 Speciale.
It has been speculated the vehicle will send 530kW and 770Nm to the rear wheels via a 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8, and rumours suggest the Pista'sengine is a development of that found in the Ferrari Challenge race auto. For reference, the "regular" GTB makes 492kW and 760Nm.
The transmission will be the previously known seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, but we expect the tech boffins at Ferrari to give the Pista its own unique settings alongside Slide Slip Control management which will allow for greater yaw angles before fully intervening.
If the revised exterior wasn't an obvious giveaway, the 488 Pista was designed with aerodynamic performance in mind. Incredibly, 0-62 mph takes just 2.85 seconds, while 0-124 mph takes 7.6 seconds before the 488 Pista tops out at over 211 mph.
The torque figures are less impressive with only just 10 Nm (7.38 lb-ft) gained, but there's also the 90 kilograms the Pista shaved off that need to be considered. The Pista gets a 709bhp engine derived from the 488 Challenge racecar, and will also feature newly revised bodywork working towards maximising downforce and reduce drag.
To start with, with Ferrari's extensive experience in the GTE Class, the 488 Pista will be quite the focussed fighter. SSC 6.0 incorporates all the following systems: E-Diff3, F1-Trac, the magnetorheological suspension (SCM) and, for the first time ever, the Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer.
It'll be on display at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
