Ferrari F8 Tributo: Feast Your Eyes On It In Over 70 Photos

Ferrari has brought the new F8 Tributo at the Geneva Motor Show for its world debut, as the successor to the 488 GTB and the most powerful mid-engined V8 berlinetta in the history of the brand.

The new Ferrari F8 Tributo is powered by the company’s twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8 engine, here tuned to produce 710hp (720PS) and 568lb-ft (770Nm) of peak torque. The numbers are the exact same with the special 488 Pista.

Ferrari claims that the new F8 Tributo is capable of a 0-62mph (100km/h) in 2.9 seconds, with 0-124mph (200km/h) in 7.8 seconds before hitting a top speed of 211mph (340km/h).

It’s not a secret that the new F8 Tributo is the latest evolution of the aluminum 458 platform, with Ferrari saying that their latest mid-engine berlinetta is “a bridge to a new design language”. The new supercar blends in new design elements with aero features such as an S-Duct at the front, which on its own increases downforce by 15 percent compared to a standard 488 GTB.

The rear end of Ferrari’s McLaren 720S rival marks the return of the classic Ferrari twin light clusters, while the engine cover is now made out of Lexan and features louvers to extract hot air and remind us of the iconic F40.

The chassis of the new F8 Tributo employs Ferrari’s latest version of the Side Slip Angle Control traction management system, which aims to make sliding the car around manageable even for the less experienced drivers.

The changes over the 488 GTB are less prominent once you look inside the cabin; the layout of the redesigned dashboard remains the same as before, only now there are completely new door panels and a center console, as well as a new steering wheel design. The passenger gets a 7-inch touchscreen display.

First deliveries of the new Ferrari F8 Tributo are expected to begin in late 2019 to early 2020.

    red one looks so bada$$

    Using aerodynamics to improve performance, and an austere interior is Ferrari catching up with MacLaren.
    Pretty car but its been done already.

  • Andrewthecarguy

    Just not impressed with Ferrari as of late. The designs look weird. And they all look similar. Performance is pretty impressive, but this just doesn’t stand out like it should.

    • fgclolz

      Design still uses the basic shape of the Modena from 2000.

  • Agus Hillairet

    Love that Ferrari didn’t change the mirrors since the Italia😂

    • Matt

      Why would they need to change the mirrors? They would have spent a long time in the wind tunnel perfecting their shape, and they hardly make the car look old.

  • Bikie Wright

    Not feeling this at all. It’s like Ferrari designers either are getting lazy or just don’t care. “Churn out anything, people will buy because of the badge…” I’d much rather have a Huracan Evo, even if it is slower.

  • SteersUright

    Very cool, but not at all beautiful. Theres no flow to this design, it looks rather piecemeal.

    Perfection

  • EL MATADOR

    look like Lotus from 2000s
