The 488 Pista is a lineup of fast and stylish cars. There is no doubt about that. The latest iteration, the 2019 Ferrari 488 Pista, is the proof of that. It looks very stylish and comes with a powerful engine. What about the 2020 Ferrari 488 Pista? Will it be different from the 2019 Pista? Find out the answers below
2020 Ferrari 488 Pista Redesign
We don’t expect major changes in terms of design. If there are any changes, they will make the 488 Pista look more stylish and racecar-like. It is, after all, a lineup of cars with astonishing power. For the 2020 model, the design changes will be more of updates and refresh rather than a major redesign.
The exterior will be at least as aerodynamic as the exterior of the 2019 model. The “S-Duct,” which is Ferrari’s new innovation to improve the aerodynamics of a car, will be used. There will be curves everywhere. These curves should help the car to accelerate faster.
While the exterior will look complex, the same thing can’t be said for the interior. As we all see from the current Pista, the interior is much simpler than the exterior. The 2020 model should inherit this contrast as well. The interior will have good quality materials, mostly carbon fibers, but without design complexities present in the exterior.
We expect the 2020 Ferrari 488 Pistato to inherit the engine of the 2019 Ferrari 488 Pista. That means it will come with a 3.9-liter, twin-turbo V8 engine capable of delivering an output of 710 hp with 586 lb-ft of torque.
As for the 0 to 60 mph time, the upcoming 488 Pista should be able to reach it in less than 3 seconds. As for maximum speed, 2019 488 Pista is recorded to have 211 mph maximum speed. The 2020 488 Pista should be no different.
What is interesting about the 488 Pista lineup is that it comes with an engine that has an outstanding output yet it is not as expensive as hypercars. In some cases, even has a similar output with several hypercars that cost over $1 million.
2020 Ferrari 488 Pista Release Date and Price
At the moment, Ferrari has yet to give an official announcement regarding the release date. So, we don’t know when will the 2020 488 Pista for now. That being said, if the upcoming 488 Pista is meant to be a 2020 model, it should be released either in the second half of 2019 or early 2020.
Assuming there are no major changes, the starting price should be more or less the same. The starting price of the current Ferrari Pista is in the $350,000 range. Expect the upcoming Pista to have a similar starting price.
As far as we know, the 2020 Ferrari 488 Pistaisn’t going to get a major redesign. Being a supercar, it wouldn’t be surprising if the 2020 model gets a more powerful engine. Other than that, we expect most of its parts will not be too different from the 2019 model. It will be a carryover model, rather than a redesigned one.
