Arrivederci, 488GTB: welcome to the Ferrari F8 Tributo

That's pretty much all we know about the vehicle so far but if we had to put money on it, this is likely going to be the hybrid successor to the 488 GTB. 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.

Under the quintessential louvered Lexan engine cover, reminiscent of the legendary F40, lies a 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged V8, tuned to deliver 710hp and 568 pound-feet of torque, sent directly to the rear wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre, the F8 Tributo is essentially a bridge to a new design language that will continue to emphasise Ferrari's key characteristics of high performance and extreme aerodynamic efficiency.

Ferrari F8 Tributo (Tribute in Italian) details have been revealed today prior to its grand unveiling at 2019 Geneva Motor Show next week. Will the next generation of mid-engine series-production Ferrari (after this one) get an all-new V8... or no V8 at all? That makes it Ferrari's most powerful V-8 series-production auto to date, and is said to be enough to rocket the Tributo to 62 miles per hour in 2.9 seconds and to a top speed of 211 miles per hour. Top speed is pegged at 340 km/h (211 mph).

So, the F8 Tributo houses the same 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8 as that 488 - an engine Ferrari doesn't hesitate to remind us won International Engine of the Year Awards three years on the trot, and last year took the title of best engine of the last two decades. New brake cooling intakes up front help improve airflow.

The Ferrari F8 Tributo incorporates the latest version of Side Slip Angle Control with Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer, the latter of which here can be activated in Race mode for the first time. The smaller diameter steering wheel rim improves control, and the F8 Tributo's aero package is a track development. The S-Duct - again, another Pista refugee - has been redesigned for F8 deployment, adding 15 per cent to the overall increase in downforce over the regular 488. It features the same driver-oriented layout, although Ferrari stresses that every element of the dash, door panels, and center tunnel has been completely redesigned. You'll also find new round air vents and a 7-inch touchscreen.
