FERRARI at the Geneva Motor Show on Tuesday introduced the new F8 Tributo, the most powerful V8-powered road car in the brand’s history.
The F8 Tributo, which outputs 710hp (or 182hp per liter), replaces the Ferrari 488 GTB. Its V8 produces 49hp more than that which propelled the 488 GTB. Ferrari said the new car improves in all areas, providing even better control on the limit while also being more comfortable. It is also lighter and 10% more aerodynamic.
The car maker said the F8 Tributo is packed with advanced vehicle dynamics solutions, which include a new version of the Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer (FDE+) that can be activated via the Manettino’s Race setting; a smaller steering wheel; and a dry weight lighter by 40 kilograms compared to the 488 GTB. A new aero package, which adopts several features from the 488 Pista version, also helps as this manage engine heat, directing airflow to the rearward-angled front radiators and to the dynamic engine air intakes.
The F8 Tributo, penned at the Ferrari Styling Center, introduces a new design language that will continue to emphasize the brand’s preference for high performance and aerodynamic efficiency.
