    • Pista dominates again? Ferrari 488 Pista vs. McLaren 600LT vs. Porsche 991.2 GT3 RS 0-100 acceleration and lap time shootout

      This comparison is almost perfect. What is wrong? Autocar did not get the correct Porsche. While the GT3 RS is a spectacular car it is getting outmuscled by the turbocharged rivals presented here. Autocar should have brought a GT2 RS to this party.


      Just because the lineup is not perfect (despite Autocar's lame excuses regarding the GT2 RS) does not mean this is not interesting. These are three spectacular track cars and the world's best at what they do.

      The car that should win on paper is the 600LT but Ferrari is sending ringers to magazines. You have to think for yourself when viewing the test results because in the turbo era 'Press Files' for test cars are all too common.

      The roadcourse testing takes place at the Anglesey Coastal Circuit. The laptime testing is in addition to 0-100-0 sprint timing.

      Here is the result:


      BoostAddict is having a very hard time believing the Pista is almost a second faster to 100 miles per hour than the 600LT. And 1.7 seconds quicker around the track?

      The GT3 RS coming up short is no surprise. It just lacks the power but still shows very well. The Pista dominating the 600LT by a greater margin than the 600LT manages to be ahead of the GT3 RS on the track just does not smell right.

      We need to see some independent 488 Pista testing at this point.

        Wrong Porsche and the Pista is slower than the 720s so we all know that the LT will be on a whole other level.

        It seems that Ferrari will only run against other manufacturers in a controlled environment only! Still remember when they denied the comparison test against the 918 and the P1. At least McLaren had the balls to send the car with a team, only to lose that test against the 918 (motor trend comparison).

        Exactly this.

        I don't believe the 488 Pista is faster than the 600LT or anywhere near to the degree presented here.

        570's smoke the 488...

        Ferrari had press ringers for their NA cars so it's guaranteed that these turbo cars are far more tuned. I don't care what Ferrari quotes, I know the pista is heavier than the 720. So to accelerate at almost the same pace means it's making well over 700 to the wheels.
