The Ferrari F8 Tributo is the Fastest Ferrari You Can Buy

The Ferrari F8 Tributo is the Fastest Ferrari You Can Buy








Feb 28, 2019

Say goodbye to the Ferrari 488 GTB and hello to the newer, faster and prettier Ferrari F8 Tributo.

The F8 Tributo is essentially a heavily updated take on the 488 GTB and arrives with the McLaren 720S directly in its crosshairs. Ferrari’s 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine is making 710 hp and 567 lb-ft of torque in this application and helps take the 2,931 lb supercar from 0-60 mph in 2.9s and from 0-124 mph in just 7.8s. It will also keep on accelerating until it hits a vision-blurring top speed of 211 mph.


The exterior features subtle throwbacks to Ferraris of yore, including a Lexan rear screen inspired by the Ferrari F40’s clear engine compartment cover and a ‘twin light cluster’ inspired by early front engine V8 Ferraris like the 1975 308 GTB. Many of the styling tweaks actually help the F8 Tributo go faster, with the new front S-Duct providing a 15% increase in overall downforce alone. The car also features a ‘blown’ rear wing, with hot air from the engine exiting out the clear engine cover and hitting the rear wing to produce more downforce. Brake cooling has been optimized as well thanks to larger, restyled air ducts.

Ferrari says the Tributo’s appearance is the indicative of what’s to come from the automaker in the near future.

“Designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre, the F8 Tributo is essentially a bridge to a new design language that will continue to emphasise Ferrari’s key characteristics of high performance and extreme aerodynamic efficiency,” it said in a statement.

Other improvements over the 488 GTB include the latest version of Ferrari’s advanced Slide Slip Angle Control traction system and the automaker’s new Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer (FDE), which allows the driver to more easily control the vehicle at the limit. The interior has also been slightly redesigned with a smaller diameter steering wheel, a new digital driver’s display and an available 7-inch passenger touchscreen display.

Details on pricing and availability for the Ferrari F8 Tributo are not yet available. It will make its official debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show in March, so stay tuned to AutoGuide for more coverage on this new Ferrari.
