Because the biggest race of the year is tomorrow, Ferrari’s Tailor Made program has released a new version of the 488 Pista. The “Piloti Ferrari” 488 Pista was built to recognize the dedication of their client’s race teams. The cover was removed this morning at LeMans, next to the car that inspired it. The #51 car of AF Corse is driven by Alessandro Guidi and James Calado, and they won last year’s World Endurance Championship Drivers’ and Manufacturers’ trophies.
That is why this new Piloti Ferrari can only be ordered by factory-supported drivers. Four color choices are Argento Nurburgring, Nero Daytona, Blu Tour de France, and of course, Rosso Corsa. Inside you are treated to black Alcantara with perforated seats to keep you cool. The Italian flag can be seen in several spots, and the Tailor Made artists will emblazon your car’s number on the dash and on the exterior if so desired.
Behind the cockpit is the latest 709 horsepower twin-turbo V8. The 3.9 liter has been voted best turbo V8 for the 3rd consecutive year. The finishing touches are graphics from the 488 GTE and PRO. Natural finish carbon fiber makes up many of the aerodynamic bits. If you think you might be on the list, click the link below to find our dealer nearest you, and take the 488 GTB for a spin.
