3.21KViews

The Ferrari F8 Tributo is the new mid-rear-engined sports car that represents the highest expression of the Prancing Horse’s classic two-seater berlinetta. It is a car with unique characteristics and, as its name implies, is an homage to the most powerful V8 in Ferrari history.

The F8 Tributo features state-of-the-art aerodynamics, integrating innovations and expertise developed thanks to the company’s involvement in the GT and Challenge championships. The solutions have been honed to create a series-production mid-rear-engined berlinetta with the highest level of performance available.

To achieve their goal of making the car’s impressive performance easy to access and use, Ferrari’s engineers worked on integrating engine and aerodynamics performance with the latest iteration of the vehicle dynamics control systems.

Several new software features are installed on the F8 which are controlled via the manettino dial on the steering wheel. The car is equipped with Ferrari’s latest Side Slip Angle Control traction- and stability-control program. Additionally, the Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer, an electronic program for managing drifts, can now be used in the Race drive mode

The F8 Tributo has a top speed of 340 km per hour and it accelerates from 0-100 km per hour in 2.9 seconds. The 0-200 km per hour speed is clocked at 7.6 seconds.

The front of the car is characterized by the S-Duct (originally featured on the 488 Pista) around which the entire front end of the car has been redesigned, with additional air intakes above the headlights. The front is completed by side aerodynamic intakes which are integrated into the shape of the bumper and feature two aerodynamic side splitters in black.

The radiator packs are tilted towards the rear, using a flat under-tray to channel the hot air and minimize the thermal interaction with the flows inside the wheel arch. The car also features quad tail lamps, a feature that was last seen in the V8 lineage on the F430.

At the rear, it sports a louvered clear engine cover made from lightweight Lexan which pays homage to the F40 and a wrap-around rear spoiler inspired by the 308 GTB, with additional air intakes on either side.
