Watch: Behind the Wheel of the 700-Horsepower Ferrari 488 Pista

Has Ferrari made the ultimate V-8 road car? That was certainly the goal. We traveled to the Fiorano Circuit in Italy to drive the 2019 Ferrari 488 Pista, the most powerful V-8 road car ever built by the coveted brand. With its 3.9-liter twin-turbo V-8, the Pista cranks out 710 hp and 567 lb-ft of torque. That’s significantly more than the 661 hp and 561 lb-ft made by the regular 488 GTB. The new model also has the best weight-to-power ratio of any road-ready Ferrari, saving around 200 pounds over the GTB.

Watch the video to learn more about how the Ferrari 488 Pista drives on the track.
