Ferrari has revealed the first images of its new mid-rear-engined sports car that represents the highest expression of its classic two-seater berlinetta.

01 Mar 2019 | International News : Italy



The name is an homage to both the model's uncompromising layout and to the engine that powers it - the most powerful V8 in Prancing Horse history for a non-special series car and sets the benchmark not just for turbos, but for engines across the board.

The new generation Human Machine Interface significantly enhances the on-board environment for driver and passenger
Thanks to a 488 Pista-matching 710bhp and 770Nm of torque from Ferrari's famed twin-turbocharged 3.9-litre V8, the F8 Tributo goes from 0-100km/h in a McLaren 720S-rivalling 2.9 seconds.

The new car replaces the 488 GTB, with improvements across the board, providing even better control on the limit along with greater on-board comfort. The F8 Tributo is lighter and benefits from a 10% improvement in aerodynamic efficiency along with the latest version of the Side Slip Angle Control, now in 6.1 guise.

Designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre, the F8 Tributo is essentially a bridge to a new design language that will continue to emphasise Ferrari's key characteristics of high performance and extreme aerodynamic efficiency. State-of-the-art aerodynamic solutions incorporated into the car's body help ensure that the extraordinarily powerful engine can be fully exploited.

As with the 488 Pista, the F8 Tributo's aero package is directly evolved from the track and it adopts several features from the 488 Pista designed to help manage engine heat, including, for instance, the rearward-angled front radiators and the dynamic engine air intakes positioned either side of the spoiler instead of on the rear flanks.

The cabin retains the classic, driver-oriented cockpit look typical of Ferrari's mid-rear-engined berlinettas, but every element of the dash, door panels and tunnel, has been completely redesigned.

The steering wheel rim is also smaller in diameter to enhance the level of tactility and make the car feel even more agile. In addition, weight reduction measures have cut the car's dry weight by 40kg compared to the 488 GTB, further enhancing both responsiveness and driving pleasure without impinging on interior comfort.
