Thanks to that power boost, and the weight reduction, the 488 Pista can go from 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds, with a top speed of 211mph, reports Motor1.

Thanks to the combination of more power and less weight, the 488 Pista will sprint to 62 miles per hour in only 2.8 seconds and top out at 211 miles per hour.

Finally, in launch spec, the Ferrari 488 Pista gets a racing livery colour scheme not dissimilar to the 458 Speciale that came before it. Pricing and availability are yet to be announced.

Japanese 'Super Dad' Wins Custody of 13 Surrogate-Born Babies
A Thai court has given a wealthy Japanese businessman sole custody of 13 children he fathered through surrogates in Thailand. His lawyer, Kong Suriyamonthon, said his reason for having so many children is for "personal and business reasons".

Indeed, the aerodynamic changes to the 488 Pista are extreme, with the new scalloped bonnet showing hefty modification changes and Ferrari adopting modified versions of the front and rear splitters used on its 488 GTE race vehicle that won the 2017 FIA World Endurance Championship.

A new Ferrari is always something special, but the Ferrari 488 Pista promises to be even more unusual than most. For the first time, Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer (FDE) is also fitted, which the company describes as "software that adjusts the brake pressure at the calipers".

The name Pista is a nod to its performance as means "track" in Italian. It therefore comes as little surprise then that there is now a track-focused version of the 488 GTB - the Pista. Efforts to reduce weight have played a big part too, and the Pista comes in at 198 pounds less - a total of 2,822 pounds dry - than the 488 GTB. Torque now sits at 568 lb-ft, 7 lb-ft more than the standard 488. A blown rear spoiler with a "suspended" appearance has been reshaped and made longer and higher for increased performance. It has a top speed over 211 miles per hour.

Why India is being really rude to Justin Trudeau
On official state visits to India, PM Modi personally greets and welcomes the Israeli PM, UAE Crown Prince and US President. Take the case of Punjab CM Amarinder Singh, for instance who met Justin Trudeau today, overlooking past animosity.

This all gives the 488 Pista a 20 per cent improvement in downforce compared to its 488 GTB parent.

Ferrari has already confirmed development of the 488 Special Series and given the brand's penchant for secrecy we might not hear much more until its expected debut at the Geneva motor show next month. Version 6 of the Side-Slip Angle Control system has been installed, incorporating E-Diff3, F1-Trac and the magnetorheological suspension (SCM).

It's also the first vehicle to use FDE, a system that automatically adjusts brake pressure on the calipers.

Canadian Figure Skating Duo Takes 2nd Gold at Winter Olympics
If you (we) are captivated by the sexual tension between them, it probably just means they're doing their jobs correctly. After her win, Sharpe paid tribute to Canadian halfpipe pioneer Sarah Burke, who died after a training accident in 2012.

The 488 special edition wasn't expected to be officially revealed until Geneva, but Maranello has been scrambling to plug leaks for months now, with images and technical information seeping out since late a year ago.
