Ferrari is making the final tweaks on its new 488 Pista, meaning that test mules are out and about, like this one filmed recently at Germany‚Äôs N√ľrburgring. It sounds good, for a twin-turbo V8, and also, yes, seems quick and grippy, like its 488 predecessors.

The 3.9-liter engine will make a claimed 711 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque, all pushing a car that has dropped some weight from other 488s, coming in at 2,821 pounds.

And at N√ľrburgring, the car is truly in its element, as Pista means ‚Äútrack‚ÄĚ in Italian. A car this powerful belongs nowhere else.

Back in February we saw some official press photos of the Pista for the first time. They still look good!
