Ferrari has once again entered in the supercar Nurburgring lap record battle along with Mclaren, Porsche and Lamborghini.
The Nürburgring gets the majority of our consideration with regards to lap times – however it’s not by any means the only race track on the planet, obviously. Hell, it’s not in any case the just one in Germany. Apparently second just to the Green Hell is Hockenheim, where the Ferrari 488 Pista simply set another lap record.
The no-nonsense, eight-chamber, twin-turbocharged supercar timed a lap time of 1:45.9 around the fabulous prix circuit. That is 1.4 seconds quicker than the past creation car record, set only a couple of months back in chief opponent Lamborghini’s Aventador SVJ. The accomplishment was cultivated by German magazine Sport Auto, which has a talent for undertaking such undertakings. Its tester Christian Gebhardt was in the driver’s seat, similarly as he was in the Lambo. Furthermore, you can watch the record-setting lap go down in the video above.
The 488 Pista, for those new, is the more engaged variant of the Ferrari 488 GTB. Its 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 has been retuned to convey 710 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque (up from 661 hp and 561 lb-ft), including the transmission and suspension to the inside and bodywork taken care of and stripped down. Accordingly, it’s ready to achieve 62 mph from a halt in 2.85 seconds, top out at 211 mph, and lap the Fiorano test circuit (as envisioned here) in 1:21.5 – a strong second and a half quicker than the 488 GTB.
Now, the Tifosi may call attention to that the 488 Pista isn’t the most recent cycle of the breed. Ferrari has since uncovered the new F8 Tributo, pressing indistinguishable motor specs from the Pista. Be that as it may, with a moderately higher control weight, Maranello cites somewhat slower figures for the Tributo – including a Fiorano lap time an entire second slower.
