Ferrari has pulled a rabbit out of the hat ahead of the Geneva Motor Show with the arrival of the Ferrari F8 Tributo, a replacement for the Ferrari 488 GTB.
Ferrari has a new mid-engined Supercar – the Ferrari F8 Tributo.
Ahead of the Geneva Motor Show Ferrari has pulled a surprise with the arrival of the F8 Tributo, a replacement for the 488 GTB with the power of the 488 Pista, launched last year.
That means the F8 Tributo comes with 49bhp more than the regular 488, with 710bhp from its 3.9 litre V8, enough to get the F8 Tributo to 62mph in 2.9 seconds, 124mph in 7.8 seconds and on to a top speed of 211mph. So it’s quick.
The new moniker is a proclamation of what is the most powerful standard production V8 Ferrari to date, and comes with weight savings of 40kg, an addition 15 per cent downforce and 10 per cent improvement in aerodynamic slippiness, as well as the latest Side Slip Angle Control system.
There are louvres on the see-through engine cover (hints of the F40), twin back lights (think 308 GTB), smaller steering wheel, air intakes each side of the rear spoiler, new S-Duct design, more compact LED headlights and a redesign for the interior.
We’ve no idea when the F8 Tributo will go on sale – or how much it will costs – but expect all to be revealed when it debuts at Geneva next week.
