Ah, a camouflaged Ferrari 488 Pista. Did you manage to get a good run in it? On an empty track, I drove many laps in a late prototype. Slow ones then quick-as-I-can (not that quick) ones. Then on the roads, I dawdled through traffic and mooched up hillside routes. Everywhere and all the time, I went looking for turbo lag. You’ll have read that any number of turbo engines are free of lag. There’s the AMG V8, or some of BMW’s and Porsche’s better efforts. Nope. What they are, my friends, is “free of lag”. Then there’s the Ferrari 488’s V8. That one is tantalisingly close. Close but not touching. The quotation marks remain. And what about the 488 Pista’s V8? You can forget any additional punctuation. It’s free of lag. That’s the electrifying achievement of the 488 Pista.
