Ferrari 488 Pista fully utilizes Ferrari's experience in motor-sport for maximum aerodynamic performance even on the highway. Some of the adopted racing technologies are the F1-inspired S-Duct and front diffuser design with optimized angled angles to improve downforce. The vortex generator under the car body has also been reengineered, and the rear diffuser uses a dual stand to improve air extraction and generate downforce. In addition, the rear spoiler of the Ferrari 488 Pista is also made higher and longer. The result is a 20% increase in downforce.

Ferrari 488 Pista adopts technology of Side-Slip Angle Control 6 (SSC 6.0) which combines all the following systems: E-Diff3, F1-Trac, Supply Chain Management (SCM), and Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer (FDE). As already known that FDE uses the software to adjust the brake pressure on the calipers. This additional level of control improves the performance of the 488 Pista as cornering and makes car control much easier.
