What's all this about?

It's a special version of a special version of a very special car in the first place. For those who don't think the magical Ferrari 488 Pista is quite enough car for anyone's needs, here's a version of said 720hp Italian rocket that will only be available to Ferrari customers who are involved in the Italian firm's motorsport exploits.

Really?

Yes, hyper-exclusivity is assured with the Ferrari 488 Pista Piloti Ferrari.

What does that name mean?

Ferrari race drivers. In 2017, an AF Corse 488 GTE - in the hands of Alessandro Pier Guidi and James Calado - won the 2017 FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) Drivers' and Manufacturers' titles. It looked a lot like the car you can see in the pictures. The Piloti Ferrari has an Italian tricolour-striped exterior and the ability for owners to put on a race number of their choosing; the first car, revealed at Le Mans, wore No.51, which happened to be the same as Guidi and Calado's GTE's digits. There are further details linking to the WEC, such as the series' logo, a laurel to mark the titles and also the word 'PRO' (the class in which the WEC 488 GTE competed) to be espied near the stripes, while the S-Duct is matte black, the rear spoiler and vent surrounds are in exposed carbon fibre and four colours inspired by racing can be specified: Rosso Corsa, Blu Tour De France, Nero Daytona and Argento Nürburgring.

OK, what else has changed?

Inside, the perforated, black Alcantara seats feature Italian red, white and green stitching, while said three colours are also featured on the edges of the gearshift paddles and the floormats. Whatever the number specified outside on the 488's doors will be replicated on the steering wheel, while all carbon-fibre parts come with a matte finish. Final touches include an exclusive identification plate and sill trim in carbon-fibre, the latter with the Tailor Made logo.

This is just a regular 488 Pista with some fancy paint, then?

Er, yes. If you think a 720hp, turbocharged V8 Ferrari is 'regular', of course...
