Ferrari isn’t so much an automaker as a hedge fund guaranteeing absurd returns. The 2019 488 Pista—the name means “track” in Italian—is Maranello’s most extreme V-8 supercar to date, and it very well may be the safest way for your bank account to experience 211 mph.
Ferrari’s primary intention with the 488 Pista—which follows in the tire tracks of the previous hard-core 360 Challenge Stradale, 430 Scuderia, and 458 Speciale—is to make amateurs feel like Fernando Alonso. The Pista is the nearest thing to attaching a license plate to a 488GTE, GT3, or Challenge racer. Except it’s probably faster.
