Ferrari has created a special Ferrari 488 Pista, called the “Piloti Ferrari.” What makes this specific 488 Pista so unique is that unless you are part of Ferrari’s race car programs, you won’t be able to get one.
The Ferrari 488 Pista “Piloti Ferrari” has been created by Ferrari’s Tailor Made division was designed to recognize the success of clients who race Ferraris. It will make its debut this weekend at the 86th 24 Hours of Le Mans, on the eve of the French endurance race at the Circuit de la Sarthe.
The “Piloti Ferrari” is inspired by AF Corse’s no. 51 car, with which Alessandro Pier Guidi and James Calado won the 2017 FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) Drivers’ and Manufacturers’ titles.
The exterior of the special 488 Pista features a new livery with stripes in the colors of the Italian flag recalling the racing version of the 488 GTE, embellished by a laurel celebrating the WEC title, the logo of the championship and the word “PRO” indicating the class the car raced in. The version debuting this weekend carries the number 51 used by the world championship drivers. At the rear there’s a matte black S-Duct, carbon-fiber ‘dovetail’ suspended rear spoiler and vent surrounds.
The interior features black Alcantara wrapped seats with the Italian flag in the central band of the backrest. The same number on the external livery also appears on the base of the steering wheel, while all the carbon-fibre trim parts have a matte finish.
The “Piloti Ferrari” 488 Pista will be available in four colors: Rosso Corsa, Blu Tour De France, Nero Daytona and Argento Nürburgring.
