• World's sexiest drop top? The 2019 Ferrari 488 Pista Spider

      Ferrari is showing the 2019 488 Pista Spider off at various shows and it will soon be officially hitting the streets. The Ferrari 488 GTB is a sexy car and with a twin turbo V8 a return to forced induction V8's for Ferrari and the Pista version takes things even further.

      Which, frankly, with the McLaren 720S on the market Ferrari needed to do.

      Horsepower is up 710 from the 3.9 liter F154 twin turbo V8. It will not be as quick as the Pista coupe due to carrying an additional 150 pounds. Ferrari claims the Pista Spider weighs 3273 pounds but knowing Ferrari they're lying.

      Ferrari made aerodynamic changes based on the FIA GT winning Ferrari 488 GTE. Ferrari states aerodynamic efficiency is 20% better over the standard 488.

      Despite this being a drop top Ferrari takes the track performance seriously and adopted braking systems from the 488 Challenge race car.

      More power, better aerodynamics, improved handling, and less weight. Add in incredible styling and what is there not to like? Other than the price tag, of course.
