Ferrari F8 Tributo one-ups the 488 in Geneva with 710 hp

Ferrari F8 Tributo one-ups the 488 in Geneva with 710 hp

In the F8 Tributo, it still pumps out a healthy 710 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and a neck-snapping 568 lb-ft of torque at 3,250 rpm. And while Ferrari doesn't explicitly say it, the fact that it has the exact same specs as the 488 Pista hints that it could very well be the same engine.

What's more, the F8 Tributo weighs 2,932 pounds dry when graced with all of the lightweight options.

As with the model it replaces, that wealth of rampaging Italian horses is sent via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox to the rear wheels to produce some fairly eye-watering performance stats.

But it's the looks that are the big talking point of the F8 Tributo.

The latest version of Ferrari's Side Slip Angle Control "controlled slide" system is another feature of the F8 Tributo, as is new version of Ferrari Dynamic Enhanced called FDE+ that now works in the Race mode of the Manettino drive mode selector and makes on the limit handling more predictable.

Ferrari F8 Tributo goes from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.9 seconds, and from 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 7.8 seconds. A clear rear screen á la F40 shows off the incredible engine, which has won Engine of the Year three times, and recently took home top engine of the last two decades.

Ferrari says the F8 Tributo "is essentially a bridge to a new design language", indirectly acknowledging that it's not an all-new design.

In addition, there is an all-new interior design with a smaller steering wheel and barrel-type air vents to keep you chilled during hot laps around the track.

The F8 is also 88 lbs lighter than the 488, and features improved aerodynamics that steal a few ideas from Ferrari's racing program, including a so-called S-Duct that channels air from the grille to over the hood to improve downforce.

Keeping the pedal to the metal, the vehicle can cross the 200km/h mark in 7.8s and hit a top speed of 340km/h. These include a new version of the Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer (FDE+) which can be activated in the manettino's RACE position for the first time, a move created to make performance on the limit easier to reach and control for an even greater number of drivers. There are new, slimmer LED headlights, and while they've shrunk, space has opened up for brake cooling ducts, and better air flow around the front. The blown spoiler increases rear downforce generated.
