On the former runway in the United States, the highest possible speed was checked for the Italian supercar Ferrari 488 Pista. The car was able to accelerate to 342 km / h.

  This article will focus on a new high-speed race, which took place at an abandoned training ground, which was previously used for take-off and landing of the space shuttle. This track is located in Florida (USA). Recently, the capabilities of many high-performance cars from the production Camaro to the racing versions of Porsche sports cars and even the Dodge Viper with its 1,400 horsepower have been tested at this training ground. Cars showed their speed capabilities at a distance of 4.35 kilometers. Now it’s time to enjoy the look and formidable roar of the Italian supercar Ferrari 488 Pista.

 According to official figures, accelerating this car from 0 to 100 km / h takes just 2.8 seconds. The maximum speed is 339.5 km / h.

 The Italian supercar 2020 model year is equipped with a 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that develops 710 hp. power that goes to the rear wheels with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

Of course, the title of this article has already told you that this particular instance of Pista can go faster than its “passport” data. At the start, we can see not the fastest catch – the first hundred were overcome in four seconds, the speed mark of 241.35 km / h was reached in about 14 seconds. We see a slight decline when accelerating to 257.44 and 281 km / h.

The maximum speed was achieved just before the driver was forced to start to slow down – after all, through the subway 100, the lane was already ending. Pista holds a speed of 341.11 km / h for a full 10 seconds. The official speed shown in the video is 342.07 km / h, but we cannot help but wonder if the car is equipped with some kind of speed limiter. The fact is that at some point, the speedometer needle refused to move on.
