Ferrari’s newest child had its public premiere in Switzerland today.
Four years after its launch, Ferrari introduces the successor to the 488 GTB. The new model called the F8 Tributo continues its design, but with some improvements to its aerodynamics and handling. The car is 4611 mm long (+43 mm compared to 488 GTB), 1979 mm wide (+27 mm) and 1206 mm high (-7 mm).
At the heart of the new model is the 3.9-litre V8 turbocharged engine, which has an astonishing 720 hp and a maximum torque of 770 Nm. Compared to its predecessor, this is 50 hp and 10 Nm more.
In terms of performance, the F8 Tributo accelerates from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.9 seconds (0.1 faster than GTB) and up to 124 mph (200 km/h) in 7.8 seconds (-0.5 s). The maximum speed is 211 mph (340 km/h), 6 mph (10 km/h) more than the previous one.
Much better parameters are possible not only due to the increase in power to the values of the 488 Pista, but also because of the weight. This has been reduced by 40 kg, so that the Ferrari F8 Tributo weighs 1330 kg.
As far as the interior is concerned, it is almost identical to its predecessor. A new steering wheel, air grilles and switches have been added. The biggest novelty is the 7-inch touchscreen display at passenger height.
The car can be admired at the current Geneva Motor Show.
