Ferrari F8 Tributo Coupe

Ferrari has just released the first details about its world debut for the Geneva Motor Show. And its name is the F8 Tributo. The F8 Tributo has new styling cues, revised aerodynamics, and the most powerful production V8 in Ferrari’s history. 

With 720 horsepower and 568 pound-feet (770 Newton-meters) of torque generated by the twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8, the new F8 Tributo perfectly matches the hardcore Pista and offers an extra 50 hp and 7 lb-ft (10 Nm) over the outgoing GTB.  What this means is the F8 Tributo delivers breathtaking performance. It catapults from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.9 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 7.8 seconds, while top speed is 340 km/h (211 mph). 

Exterior changes improve the aerodynamic efficiency by 10%, along with the s-duct first seen on the 488 Pista for a 15% increase in downforce.  Per Ferrari, “the F8 Tributo is essentially a bridge to a new design language that will continue to emphasize Ferrari’s key characteristics of high performance and extreme aerodynamic efficiency.”

A new LED headlamp design marks the front. At the rear, the F8 Tributo’s Lexan rear screen features louvers that are an homage to the legendary F40. Besides their symbolism, they help extract hot air from the engine compartment without affecting the efficiency of the evolved blown spoiler which wraps around the taillights.

The interior is, fairly familiar when it comes to layout. It keeps the same basic feel of the 488s, a new HMI (Human Machine Interface) new multifunction steering wheel, round air vents, and a 7-inch passenger touchscreen display.

Ferrari will have the F8 Tributo on display at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show beginning with the first press day scheduled for next Tuesday, March 5.
