Ferrari 488 Pista Performance Features
The Ferrari 488 Pista is the latest and most powerful member of the Prancing Horse’s mid-engine V8 family. Named for Italy’s famed racetracks, this track-focused model delivers blistering performance with enhanced dynamics and agility. Throughout this article, we will take a closer look at a model breakdown as well as the capabilities and specifications of this beauty.
On March 6, 2018, Ferrari unveiled the 488 Pista at the Geneva International Motor Show. Make sure to click the link to witness a video of the unveiling. This special-series model is based on the Ferrari 458 Speciale and was developed with the specific goal of being “the company’s best-ever sports car”.
To achieve this, engineers focused on three main areas: power, weight reduction, and enhanced dynamics. The result is a car that weighs about 200 pounds less than the standard 458 Italia, with 50 more horsepower and significantly improved handling.
This car has won awards such as TopGear’s “2018 Supercar of the Year”, and is certainly living up to the hype.
0-62 MPH: 2.8 seconds
Specific Power Output: 2.23 kW/cu in
Utilizing Ferrari’s most powerful V-engine ever, the Pista is capable of accelerating from 0-62 mph in just seconds. With a specific power output, this engine delivers an unprecedented level of performance. This vehicle can produce 720 cv at 8,000 rpm, producing the best specific power output in its class at 185 cv/l, while torque is higher at all engine speeds, topping out at 770 Nm (10 Nm more than the 488 GTB).
This car was sculpted not only to look beautiful but with innovative elements to maximize its performance. The aerodynamic S-Duct at the front shortens the nose of the car, giving it a floating wing effect visually. The 488 GTE is referenced by having the black, omega-shaped edging on the front numbers and the side flicks.
The back of the vehicle has a dolphin-rear spoiler, which appears suspended to prove an impression of lightness and efficiency. It also has a two-tone livery that extends the entire length of the car, starting at the front bumper, and makes its way back into the S-duct and rear spoiler.
Lightweight materials such as Carbon fibre and Alcantara
Contrasting hand-stitching, tread plates, and heel rests
Sculpted door panels
The volume of under-dash area reduced by removal of glove department
Replaced by storage pockets on rear bench and doors
With a lot of the common elements eliminated in this vehicle, it gives the driver a distinct racing feel and provides an unforgettable experience.
There are many features added to this vehicle to provide the best performance possible. The Side Slip Control system (SSC) has been updated with a new algorithm to manage rear-axle torque vectoring. This optimizes traction and maximizes power delivery out of corners.
The Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system has also been recalibrated to allow for more engagement from the driver. This system will still intervene when necessary but allows for more exploration before it does.
The Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer (FDE) is a new addition that gives the driver the ability to adjust the level of rear-end slip with the push of a button. With this, you can have more control over your drifts and slides.
Safety is important to Ferrari and is always kept in mind when new features are being added. The SSC system works with the ESC system to provide the best safety possible. In addition, the FDE system gives the driver more control and allows them to intervene if necessary.
In terms of handling, this car was designed to be more agile and responsive. The suspension has been stiffened and the springs are shorter to lower the center of gravity. The front end has also been lowered to improve aerodynamics. The result is a car that handles better than any other Ferrari before it.

If a person writes a check without sufficient funds in an associated account to cover it, the check will bounce, or be returned for insufficient funds. Each state has laws regulating how merchants may respond to bounced checks. In Connecticut, the merchant may file a civil suit and press criminal charges if the check writer does not reimburse him for a bounced check after the merchant has sent several notices regarding the matter.
Posted Notice Requirement
Merchants and other business owners who accept checks must post a notice where customers are likely to see it warning them of the potential consequences of writing bad checks. The notice must include the civil penalties that bad check writers may face, the appropriate Connecticut statute number and an advisory that the check writer may also face criminal penalties
Civil and Criminal Penalties
As of 2010, civil courts may require the check writer to reimburse the merchant for the value of the check plus pay up to $750 if he has no back account or $400 if the check is returned for insufficient funds. If the merchant chooses to press criminal charges, the bad check writer may face a fine of up to $1,000 and up to one year in jail. Writing a bad check is a felony charge if the check was for more than $1,000 and a misdemeanor if written for a lesser amount.
Required Written Notices
If a check bounces, the merchant must send the check writer a letter by certified mail at the check writer's last known address or place of business. Usually this letter is sent to the address on the writer's check. The letter must inform the writer that the check was returned ask him to reimburse the merchant for the amount of the check and inform him of the potential criminal or civil penalties if he fails to do so. If the check writers does not respond to the letter within 15 days of receipt, the merchant must send a second letter. This letter must inform the check writer that he has 30 days to reimburse the merchant before the merchant takes legal action against him. Both letters must be written in both English and Spanish.
