    • Who really is the champ? Ferrari 488 Pista vs. McLaren 720S roll races

      The Ferrari 488 GTB despite what you read in magazines is not all that fast. Not that a car that traps low 130's in the 1/4 mile is slow but it is not as fast as MotorTrend would have you believe. We have seen examples at the strip run 127.9 miles per hour which is far off magazine claims.


      Ferrari with the 488 Pista knew they had to bring their A-game. The numbers coming out from magazines suggest the Pista is as fast if not faster than the McLaren 720S.

      What does the real world say? The 720S is faster. Now, the video below is low quality which is surprising as the source should know how to do a proper race vid but it clearly shows the 720S pulling past even when the Pista gets a jump.

      To Ferrari's credit, the Pista is much faster than the 488 GTB and they really stepped up the performance. The 488 Pista owner does not allow the car to really stretch its legs but the Pista does well.

      McLaren now will will no doubt produce a 720LT and smack Ferrari right back into their place which is way behind them.
