Ferrari F8 Tributo to Replace the 488 GTB
Ferrari is showing off some images and details on its replacement for the already pretty sweet 488 GTB. The new car is called the Ferrari F8 Tributo and will debut officially in Geneva next month. The F8 Tributo pays homage to Ferrari’s classic two-seat, V8-powered berlinetta, and it looks fantastic.
Tributo buyers will get the most powerful V8 in Ferrari history – this side of special edition cars. The 3.9-liter, twin-turbo V8 makes 720 cv, or about 710 hp, launching the car from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.9 seconds, on its way to 124 mph in 7.8 seconds.
The taillights have a style reminiscent of the 1975 308 GTB says Ferrari; you can certainly see a hint of Magnum P.I.’s ride in those brake lights.
The front has LED headlights, and the interior is revised with a new touchscreen for the passenger and more. The FDE+ now works in RACE mode, and the car has a host of tweaks to make it better to attain all the performance available at its limits. Speaking of limits, the F8 Tributo can hit speeds up to 211 mph.
