Italian supercar marque Ferrari has revealed the F8 Tributo, the replacement for the 488 Gran Tourismo Berlinetta. The F8 Tributo pays tribute to Ferrari's most powerful V8 engine of all time, the motorsports-derived 3.9-litre twin-turbo unit first seen on the 488 Pista.
The F8 Tributo's engine is directly lifted off the track-focused 488 Pista. The 3.9-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine cranks out 710bhp @ 8,000rpm and 770Nm of torque @ 3,250rpm, when fueled with 98 octane petrol. The engine is paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox which sends power to the rear wheels.
With all the optional weight saving parts bolted on, the F8 Tributo weighs in at only 1,330 kilogrammes dry. Thank to the loss of 40 kilogrammes compared to the 488 GTB, the F8 Tributo sprints from 0–100km/h in just 2.9 seconds, which is 0.1 seconds faster than the car it replaces. The F8 Tributo completes the 0–200km/h sprint in just 7.8 seconds (half a second faster than the 488 GTB) and continues to accelerate till it tops out at 340km/h, which is the same as the track-focused 488 Pista.
In terms of design, the F8 Tributo features a much more sleeker body with Ferrari claiming a 10 percent increase in aerodynamic efficiency compared to the car it replaces — the 488 Gran Tourismo Berlinetta. The changes can be seen in the form of the front radiators which now face the rear along with air intakes at the rear along with S-duct intake on the bonnet.
At the rear, the Ferrari F8 Tributo features an engine cover made from Lexan which sports louvres, a tribute to perhaps the greatest ever V8 Ferrari of all time — the F40. Also seen at the rear are twin tail light clusters which pay tribute to the units seen on the 1975 308 GTB, the first eight-cylinder 'Berlinetta' from Ferrari.
Step inside the Ferrari F8 Tributo and you'll find more signs of changes in terms of design. The vents for the air conditioning system are now rounded. The steering wheel is brand new as are the controls found on the car. Also new is the 7-inch touchscreen display for the passenger.
