Ferrari 812 Superfast, F8 Tributo Joining The Spider Craze

Ferrari will be blowing the roof off the F8 Tributo and 812 Superfast, with a couple of paperweights announcing their alleged imminent reveal.

Posted on Instagram by Trax_X, the two paperweights, said to have replaced the typical scale models offered as gifts, preview the design of what Ferrari calls the ‘New V8 Spider’ and ‘New V12 Spider’. The V8 Spider will be the open-top version of the F8 Tributo and it could be called the F8 Tributo Spider or F8 Spider.

The official successor of the 488 Spider will put the same 3.9-liter, twin-turbo V8 to use as its fixed-roof sibling, where it produces 720 PS (710 hp / 530 kW) and 770 Nm (568 lb-ft) of torque. Performance should be almost identical, with the F8 Tributo needing 2.9 seconds to sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph), before maxing out at 340 km/h (211 mph).

Moving on to what is believed to have been named either the 812 Superfast Spider, 812 Spider or as suggested by a member of the FerrariChatForum, the 812 GTS, this front mid-engined, rear-wheel drive convertible supercar will be the louder model of the two, as it will adopt an old-school 6.5-liter, naturally aspirated V12. In the 812 Superfast, the mill churns out 800 PS (789 hp / 588 kW) and 718 Nm (530 lb-ft) of torque, which results in performance specs identical to the F8 Tributo.

If the information pans out, then we should see Ferrari’s new Spiders out sometime this month. According to the official exhibitor list, Ferrari won’t be attending the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, so the official unveiling will likely take place in Maranello.
