To match its rival from Britain, the Pista has been subjected to Ferrari's biggest jump yet between standard coupe and special model.

The 488 Pista's 3.9-litre V8 engine is believed to generate around 700bhp.

Ferrari has introduced a hot-rodded, track-oriented evolution of the 488 GTB ahead of its public debut at the Geneva Auto Show.

The engine cover, bumpers and rear spoiler are all made from carbon-fibre, while the 488 Pista will be the first Ferrari available with optional 20-inch carbon-fibre wheel rims.

The 488 Pista uses technologies Ferrari has developed in its 488 Challenge and 488 GTE racing cars, including lightweight materials, aerodynamic solutions and engine output.

Although some of the changes to the standard 488 have undoubtedly made the 488 Pista a faster and more extreme performance auto, Ferrari is at pains to point out that other changes were made in order to make the car's performance more accessible for drivers of all abilities.

As you'd expect the 488 Pista is no slouch with it only needing 2.85 seconds to reach 62 miles per hour and 7.6 seconds to reach 124 miles per hour.

The Prancing Horse explains the 488 Pista (a name which means "track" in Italian) benefits from the lessons learned while competing in the FIA's World Endurance Championship, a series which includes the 24 Hours of Le Mans. As for the acceleration, it stands at 0-100 km/h in just 2.85 seconds which is definitely not bad.

Details from an internal presentation suggest the vehicle generates 20% more downforce than a standard 488, helping pin it to the road at high speed.

It's not just more power at work, here, however, even if the 488 Pista does have the largest ever increase in engine grunt for a special series vehicle.

Aerodynamics are also an important part of the Pista's genetics. The front features a Formula One-inspired S-Duct and front diffusers with a ramp angle to increase downforce. It features a new Inconel exhaust, and has a design clearly influenced by the 488 GTE race vehicle, with the same "S-Duct" and sharp-angled front diffuser creating a ramp for airflow for extra downforce.

Among the host of electronics offered in the Ferrari 488 Pista, there is electronic dynamic controls with Side-Slip Angle Control system (SSC 6.0) that incorporates E-Diff3, F1-Trac, the magnetorheological suspension (SCM).

It's also the first auto to use FDE, a system that automatically adjusts brake pressure on the calipers.
