Ferrari unveiled a stunning 488 Pista Spider last summer and it now introduces the F8 Tributo, which the company calls “a celebration of excellence,” and explains that its new eight-cylinder model “represents the highest expression of the company’s classic two-seater Berlinetta.”
In terms of its design, the new car is reminiscent of the 488 Pista Spider, but the incorporation of a twin taillamp design seen on early eight-cylinder Berlinettas has made its return. The restyling of the body also improves the aerodynamic efficiency of the supercar by 10 percent. For the interior, the layout is similar to the 488 GTB model, however, Ferrari says that every element of the dash, door panels, and tunnel has been redesigned, while including new air vents and a 7-inch touchscreen on the dashboard.
Boasting a 3.9-liter V-8 engine that churns 710 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque, Ferrari says that the F8 Tributo is its most powerful V-8 series car to date, and claims that the supercar can hit 62 mph in 2.9 seconds, with a max speed of 211 mph. Ferrari has also redesigned the S-Duct that we first saw on the 488 Pista, in addition to implementing new brake cooling intakes on the front to help improve airflow.
Furthermore, the Ferrari F8 Tributo is equipped with a new version of the Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer, which makes controlling the lateral dynamics in high-performance mode easier, and can be activated in Race mode for the first time. A redesigned steering wheel rim, that is smaller in diameter has been added as well.
The Ferrari F8 Tributo Coupe is slated to be officially unveiled at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show this week. For more details, head on over to Ferarri’s website now.
