The 2019 Ferrari 488 PISTA
A phenomenal track car by any definition but also a solid road car that has been praised as one of the best supercars of the last decade
What makes the Ferrari 488 Pista better than any other Ferrari or any other exotic car?
The mid engine Ferrari is lighter, faster and grippier. That is all you want to hear as a car enthusiast!
New Twin turbo V8 producing 710 horsepower
As such, the weight-to-power ratio drops to 1.78 kg/HP, the lowest for a production car in Ferrari history
"Pista" is Italian for "Track"!
Last but not least, RARITY!!! As of today, $560,000 would be the lowest price to find one on the US market with only a handful of 2019 Ferrari 488 Pista available for sale worldwide if you are not a lucky past Ferrari owner who receives the right to order one
So next, here is where First Class Autosports comes in!
Best protection for the best car? No problem, this is what we do on a daily basis!
Our First Class Autosports team was chosen by the new owner to install paint protection film on every inch of paint and exposed carbon fiber to protect the original 488 Ferrari Pista factory paint finish from any scratch or potential rock chip. ( It s almost impossible to avoid this by taking the car to the track which is the correct way to drive this Ferrari and experience the limits of the car on a closed road)
On such a vehicle, you really dont want to take a chance and have to take it to a body shop to repair a small accidental scratch or small dent and have to respray the original factory Ferrari paint. This will affect the resale value but also upset any car enthusiast
Paint protection film is a thin clear layer of polyurethane installed on each panel, one at a time to guarantee full coverage. It is the only product available on the market capable to protect factory paint in this manner. No wax or coating can do the same!
Paint protection film is also self healing so light swirl marks and very light scratches will disappear with the heat of the Miami sun! leaving the finish always shiny and as new as possible
Working on such a vehicle is a privilege and our team felt very proud to be one of the few shops in the USA to protect such an incredible vehicle
The entire process took about a week from the paint preparation to the ceramic coating of the paint protection film to offer extra shine and hydrophobic properties
If you are curious to know, the 2019 Ferrari 488 Pista hood was installed in 1 custom piece by our experts!!! This hood is a very tricky and complex hood to work on to deliver a professional paint protection film result but at First Class Autosports, our experienced and professional team achieved a flawless install
Here are some pics we are happy to share with you: What a stunning vehicle!!!
