Ferrari F1 driver Charles Leclerc seen driving the Custom 488 Pista
There are some parts of the world where supercars like to congregate, where it’s common to see some of the rarer makes and models alongside hypercar unicorns. One of those places is Monaco, a prime tourist destination for the rich and famous. So capturing a supercar with a famous driver behind the wheel is not an impossibility, as a new video from YouTube channel TheTFJJ easily demonstrates.
The video, which shows several stunning supercars littered throughout the city, captured a special bespoke Ferrari 488 Pista Spider. The racing stripe of the Monaco flag on the black exterior betrays the owner – Ferrari Formula 1 driver Charles Leclerc. The videographer follows the Ferrari through town, with the magnificent soundtrack echoing through the calm night. The video also shows the supercar during the day dealing with a problem we all face while driving: getting stuck in traffic.
Leclerc’s Ferrari is a special 488 Pista Spider, which hides a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 under its subtle paintwork. The engine produces 710 horsepower (529 kilowatts) and 568 pound-feet (770 Newton-meters) of torque, allowing the supercar to hit 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in 2.9 seconds. Its top speed is 211 mph (339 km / h). Ferrari’s Tailor Made program gives customers the choice of materials and colors used inside and out, giving them the freedom to design their perfect Ferrari.
The program has resulted in some great creations, such as the unconventional specification of another Pista Spider that the company revealed earlier this year, and more are on the way if recent spy shots are any indication. The program offers a range of woods, leathers and fabrics in a variety of colors and finishes. Leclerc’s Ferrari is just as subtle on the inside as it is on the outside, with a black interior, red stitching and the driver’s signature embroidered between the seats.
