Nothing quite carries the spirit of Italy and its tradition of supercars quite like the Ferrari. The Ferrari F8 Tributo is among the latest offerings in Ferrari’s eclectic line, and you can now rent one for those ultra special times when only the absolute best will do.
The Ferrari F8 Tributo is a mid-rear-engine sports car that is touted by Ferrari as being the “highest expression” of their brand’s two-seater Berlinetta vehicle. We’ll explore the unique characteristics of this car further below, starting with the powertrain and performance information.
The Ferrari F8 Tributo embodies the traditional racing spirit for which the prancing horse of Ferrari is world renowned. The most cutting-edge aerodynamic design has been incorporated into every line of the car to make performance in this Tributo a true spectacle.
The F8 Tributo is powered by a 770 CV 3.9L V8 engine, making it the most powerful Ferrari V8 engine ever built. Even at low RPMs, it can generate 770Nm of torque and reach from 0 to 100km/h in an eye-watering 2.9 seconds. There’s no wonder it was voted by experts as the greatest Ferrari V8 of the past 20 years.
Aided by this engine and its motorsport DNA, the F8 Tributo comes built with state-of -art exterior features (more below) that aid in a truly dynamic and breathtaking on-road performance. This is a car that’s not just built for speed, but for pure enjoyment. The overall weight of the F8 has been reduced by 40kg in total compared to the 488GTB. This is largely thanks to the lighter engine, the Lexan rear windshield and the carbon fiber rear spoiler.
Your drive is further enhanced by the presence of the Ferrari Dynamic Enhance Plus (FDE+) which automatically adjusts brake pressure at each caliper to create a more intuitive feeling as you experience the lateral dynamics of the car. The F8 Tributo boasts a whole 6 percent higher speed when exiting corners compared to the 488GTB.
The exterior offers a more subtle and artistic feel compared to the 488. It’s a higher-end feel all around, though of course both models are beautiful. Racetrack genes are clearly built into every corner of the F8 Tributo. At the front end, the front S-duct comes directly from Ferrari F1 technology, and is able to generate an efficient vertical load. The radiators too are derived from the 488 and enhanced to improve cooling and reduce drag.
At the rear end, there is a wider and more inclined rear spoiler also designed to increase vertical load and supported by rear flux deflectors that reduce drag. The rear diffuse is also designed to maximize performance whether you’re taking a tight corner or heading in a rapid straight line. The underbody features a new totally flat design complemented by vortex generators and an all-new front diffuser to improve brake cooling.
On the inside, the Ferrari F8 Tributo has an all-new driver cockpit inspired by the F1 racetrack. From the flat-bottomed and wandless steering wheel (now slightly reduced in size) to the flawless digitally supported instrument display, everything you need as the driver is right there in front of you. Switch seamlessly between drive modes and handle all other functions right from your dynamic Ferrari steering wheel.
The interior ambience and comfort are made all the better with a 7” touchscreen for the passenger side, as well as contrasting red stitching throughout. The stitching is also prominent on the classic Ferrari supportive leather sports seats for both driver and passenger. Every corner oozes class and soft-touch materials, and not a scrap of cheap plastic in sight.
The low-end fuel consumption estimate is at 21.5km/100km; the mid-level estimate at 12.2l/100km and the best estimate at 10.8l/100km. It gives a combined fuel consumption of 12.9l/100km.
For emissions, the low-end estimate is 490g/km, mid-level 276g/km and best rating is 246g/km. That gives a combined rating of 292g/km.
Every you believe that Ferrari has reached some pinnacle of performance and style, but then the following year they will blow your mind with something as awesome as the F8 Tributo.
This Ferrari is just as happy cruising the narrow coastal streets of Monte Carlo before pulling up for a night in the Casino as it is trotting the grand avenues of Paris or Milan. Take the F8 Tributo through mountain roads in Switzerland, over rolling hills in Tuscany, or down the stunning open-air atmosphere of the Cote D’Azur.
