    Excellent video and article by the OP. Congratulations on what must have been a memorable experience!

    I once went 339kph (odo value) briefly on the 458: never been more focused and scared in my life. The car was perfectly tight and happy travelling at that speed, the problem was the driver: not used driving at that speed (I don’t track and never had access to a runway), I had to change my underwear.

    Your Pista is absolutely gorgeous. Keep enjoying in good health!

    Kind regards,

    Nuno.

    That’s a 488? The highest top speed I’ve ever seen on any 488 was 345kph that was tuned to 780 horsepower:



    364kph is even faster than a 812 Superfast:



    Maybe something’s off?

    Kind regards,

    Nuno.

    OK it was a joke, 364kph was from my 812.

    My former 488 did only 350kph

    Don't take youtube videos at face value. A small incline can make a big difference, not to mention atmospheric conditions, fuel quality etc, etc.

    Edit: Just saw that the 364 kph run was in an 812.

    You are right with the incline. The street I did the this is an Autobahn that goes slightly downhill which is close to my home. In both (364 in 812 and 350 in 488), I did not hit the limiter but the turn at the end of the straight. Both could go faster, at least downhill.

    Now are you going to take it to Bonneville where you get a world-recognized time slip?
