Ferrari F8 Tributo, the latest Berlinetta V8 supercar that comes at once makes us have to say ‘arrivederci’ on the Ferrari 488 GTB.
Inspired by the old Ferrari supercar icon, the Tributo Ferrari F8 which is scheduled to debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show presents innovation, performance, and appearance that are ready to make the true Ferrari Tifosi love the Prancing Horse even more.
The overall design of the 2019 Ferrari F8 Tributo done by the Ferrari Styling Center seeks to unite the two main characteristics of Ferrari, namely the design of high-performance cars with extreme aerodynamic efficiency.
One way to reach that is to re-adopt the S-Duct on the front fascia, which is redesigned so that it can produce a downforce level of 15% better than the 488 GTB.
To provide air intakes to the brake intake intakes is done in two ways, namely maximizing the air intake on the front bumper and using space in the LED headlight area that is designed more concise and horizontal design.
The effect is better airflow in the area of the tire fender space while avoiding having to increase the size of the braking system to ensure the deceleration of this high-performance supercar remains safe.
On the side of the Ferrari F8 Tributo 2019, the Ferrari Styling Center optimizes the appearance of the V8 Berlinetta by reinforcing the water side of the intake which is designed more aggressively than the 488 GTB. It also serves to provide better air intake to the engine room placed in the middle position of the car.
Ferrari is also presenting details of the classic Ferrari icon present at the rear stern. Bringing the Lexan rear screen lid inspired by the Ferrari F40, this section allows heat from the engine to be channeled out of the engine room area while supporting the performance of blown spoilers whose position is now approaching the taillight area that comes with a twin-cluster LED design.
At first glance, it is clear that the Ferrari V8 approach, which is more driver-oriented, can be seen from the use of a steering wheel design that is more compact in diameter and equipped with shift paddles and Manitteno control buttons and other attractive buttons.
The material is a combination of the elements of aluminum, carbon fiber, and leather that is very premium. In addition, Ferrari also upgraded the Human Machine Interface, and the presence of the screen on the passenger area with 7-inch dimensions was maximized to provide intense interaction between the Ferrari F8 Tributo 2018 and the driver and passenger of this car.
The Tributo F8 is still loyal to the Ferrari 488 GTB engine, 3.9 liters V8 90 * Twin Turbo. Engineers at Maranello successfully whipped the engine’s performance to produce another 50 hp, to 720 hp with 770 Nm of torque. All power is channeled to the rear wheels with an F1 dual-clutch gearbox transmission. Ferrari claims this car can accelerate from 0-100 km / h in 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 340 km/hr.
