My Friend Bought a FERRARI PISTA for the Nurburgring!

Πριν 3 μήνες

My friend Robert bought his Ferrari 488 Pista as a tool to run at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, and nearly all of it's 4,000kms have been doing laps on the Green Hell! For the first time though, he's jumping into the passenger seat and letting me take the wheel for a drive to see what Ferrari's track supercar is like on the famous loop.
The Pista is the track variant of the Ferrari 488 GTB, taking the 3.9l TT V8's power up to 720hp and 770nm, along with more downforce thanks to the s-duct up front and an integrated spoiler at the rear amongst others. This particular car is finished in Grigio Silverstone with Giallo Modena stripes and has an odo of 4,300km, including around 150 laps driving on the Nürburgring itself.
During Touristenfahrten (Tourist Drives), the Nordschleife is open as a public toll road, meaning normal road rules apply, and of course being extra careful considering I'm behind the wheel of my friend's very valuable supercar! However, it's more than enough to give a feel for the sheer amount of power available and performance that the Pista offers, even more so when we swap around and Robert takes lap 2.
For plenty more discussion and content from the Ring, be sure to check out Robert's GRpost channel too:
Awesome thumbnail pic from Rike67, be sure to check out pics of your lap at as well!
Thanks for watching, Tim

Hey Shmee, maybe you should start doing timed laps of all the cars you've driven on the Green Hell. that would be fun to watch.

Do you know what the part of the track at 9.18 is called? - it’s the sudden sharp dip where the car bottomed out? I’ve only driven this track once about 8 years ago. That sudden drop is an abiding memory and not knowing the name of it has bugged me ever since!

I have no idea who Robert is but it's nice to see a guy who really knows how to drive a supercar. Most often it's only the super rich who treat their supercars like toys in the toy box. If anyone deserves to own this Ferrari, it's this guy. Robert was driving close to 200 mph around dips and curves and it looked like he was driving a Cadillac to church.

Rare words from a Ferrari owner and driver: 'the suspension tends to bottom out through the foxhole'. The natural habitat of most Ferraris, the garage, sadly doesn't feature a foxhole. Great to see this one used.

Keep in mind that you are talking/entertaining us while you drive. Their are quite a few ppl that would not be able to do this at half the speeds you are going. Btw. You could also just show us the lap; concentrate while driving and maybe make a few comments after. ... if you feel like it.

Don’t be so hard on yourself Tim! You were driving someone else’s car (a $400,000 car at that) on the Nurburgring, in an unfamiliar car. It’s not like you were driving it slow either. I was impressed at your driving skills. If other people say you drove it like a grandpa, well I’d love to see them drive someone else’s $400,000 Pista as fast as you drove it and brought it back in one piece. Anyway, great video as always coming from a guy in Tennessee in the United States off America. Btw, I’ve been watching you since 2014, and still to this day, you’re my favorite GRpostr!!! Keep up the great work!!!
