Ferrari F8 Tributo is the new mid-rear engined sports car and also the best expression of the company’s classic two-seater berlinetta. Its name pays tribute to the model’s layout and to the engine that powers it – with a massive 720 cv and a record specific power output of 185 cv/l, it is the most powerful V8 in Ferrari’s history for a non-special series car.
Ferrari F8 Tributo is one of the fastest, most thrilling and communicative supercars ever. The new car replaces the 488 GTB, with improvements across the board, ensuring even better control on the limit along with greater on-board comfort. The lightweight supercar benefits from a 10% improvement in aerodynamic efficiency along with the latest version of the Side Slip Angle Control, now in 6.1 guise. Its exceptional handling is achieved with the help of advanced vehicle dynamics solutions. These include a new version of the Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer (FDE+) which can be activated in the manettino’s RACE position for the first time, a move designed to make performance on the limit easier to reach and control for an even greater number of drivers.
The car is fitted with state-of-the-art aerodynamic solutions incorporated into its body. The F8 Tributo’s aero package borrows several features from the 488 Pista like the rearward-angled front radiators and the dynamic engine air intakes positioned either side of the spoiler instead of on the rear flanks.
The front is characterized by the S-Duct that contributes 15% to the overall increase in downforce compared to the 488 GTB. The compact horizontal LED headlights let Ferrari’s aerodynamicists incorporate new brake cooling intakes in combination with those on the outside of the bumper. The new Lexan rear screen reveals the engine compartment while the spoiler visuals lowers the car’s centre of gravity.
The driver-oriented cockpit is Ferrari’s signature cabin found in mid-rear-engined berlinettas. The new generation HMI (Human Machine Interface), complete with round air vents, new steering wheel and controls as well as a new 8.5” passenger touchscreen display, significantly enhance the on-board environment for driver and passenger.
