I pulled up next to her in my bright red Ferrari, looking out the window as I admired her hourglass figure and cascading golden-blonde hair. We locked eyes, and she sauntered slowly over to me.
“Is that the new Ferrari 488 Pista coupe?” she asked, her eyes gazing longingly over its impressive arched roof and wing spoilers, with powerfolding side-view mirrors adorning it.
“You have a good eye,” I said. “The new 488 Pista sets a new standard on the track. Going nought to sixty in an incredible 2.7 seconds, that makes it faster in a drag race than a Lamborghini Murciélago available at at a higher price point. Its twin turbocharged 3.9-liter V8 engine generates an incredible 711 horsepower and 567 lb-ft of torque. On the track, it’s an absolute monster, but with such amazingly smooth suspension, you’d never know how much sheer power is packed into this engine.”
“So we know it’s fast on a straightaway,” she purred seductively, locking eyes with its automatic projector-beam LED headlights, “But can it handle corners?”
“You’d better believe it can handle the toughest of corners,” I said. “Its new weight distribution gives additional speed-generated downforce, and Ferrari’s side-slip angle control talks to the suspension as you turn, making the steering super-responsive. This car is just as at home setting lap times on the Nürburgring as it is navigating your daily life.”
“A beast like this must be thirsty,” she said, admiring its streamlined ceramic exhaust pipes from the rear.
“Far from it,” I replied. “The Ferrari 488 Pista gets an incredible 15 mpg for city driving, and 20 mpg for highway driving. In hypercar territory, that’s extremely economical.”
“And how much does all this cost?” she asked, already enticed effortlessly into its web of allure.
“The 488 Pista coupe starts at a very reasonable $331,000 MSRP, and it’s also available as a convertible for only $20,300 more. Considering comparable price levels from Lamborghini or McLaren, you’d almost have to be mad not to choose this car.”
“I’m sold,” she said, “The 488 Pista really is proof that the engineers at Ferrari haven’t lost their touch for combining astonishing speed with comfort, all at a reasonable price. I’d recommend this to anyone looking for a track car that can keep up with the very best.”
Afterwards, we had sex.
