The Ferrari 488 Pista is fast. Very fast. However, we are not quite sure how fast Ferrari is logging off the official lap record and avoiding benchmarking with objective performance standards. But Sport Auto a German car magazine, put in the 488 Pista on the Nürburgring back a hot lap.
The 488 Pista returned a 7: 00.03 lap. No record, but damn fast. Christian Gebhardt, the test driver of the magazine, was behind the wheel. Since it was not made by a professional driver and was not officially approved manufacturer's time, it is not directly comparable to traditional lap records but it is still a useful point
The Record time to beat is 6: 44.97, set by a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ at the 'Ring in 201
As always with the lap times at the Nürburgring, it is amazing to see. The riders who do this are really insane, flying one blind corner after another with little room for error. It's not the fastest time ever, but it's an impressive performance.
