Shows like the Geneva Motor Show make it very hard to pick just one star. The Ferrari F8 Tributo certainly makes it into the top 3.
The Ferrari F8 Tributo was unveiled a few days ago in traditional Ferrari red. Today at the Geneva Motor Show, the Italian automaker also brought a model in Blue Corsa which almost looked even better. Almost.
Regardless of what color it is painted, the Ferrari F8 Tributo looks stunning. It also looks a lot better in person than in pictures as many cars like this tend to do. The proportions work better in real life and the overall design is both distinctive and immediately recognizable as a Ferrari.
Featured on the new F8 Tributo is the most powerful Ferrari V8 ever built. The twin-turbo V8 delivers 720 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque which will get it to 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds. That’s 0.1 second faster than the previous 488 GTB the F8 Tributo replaces.
The latest Ferrari keeps pushing on its way to 200 km/h in 7.8 seconds and a top speed of 340 km/h which is as fast as the track-focused Ferrari Pista. The new F8 Tributo also weighs a lot less than the 488 GTB (-40 kg) and tips the scales at 1,330 kg.
The new design of the Ferrari F8 Tributo isn’t just nice to look at, it is more functional. Ferrari says drag is reduced by 10 percent. Various nods to Ferrari’s past can be found among the design cues of the F8 Tributo including an engine cover that reminds us of the F40.
The interior gets an upgrade as well. Round vents replace the odd-shaped ones of the 488 GTB, there’s a new seven-inch screen in front of the passenger and various commands have been redesigned.
Ferrari F8 Tributo orders will begin sometime in the near future.
