Ferrari F8 Tributo Performance

Ferrari F8 Tributo

Designed as much to be a head-turning sportscar as a beast on the track, the Ferrari F8 Tributo specs make it clear that Chicago drivers can really have it all — if they choose a Ferrari. Even normal highway driving gets an added thrill when you’re behind the wheel of the Ferrari F8 Tributo, commanding its twin-turbo V8 — but it really roars when you’re able to leave the road behind.

Ferrari F8 Tributo Performance Output

Matching the 488 Pista on performance, the Ferrari F8 Tributo represents a step up from the 488 GTB:

  • Powertrain: 3.9L twin-turbo V8 paired with a 7-speed DCT
  • Power: 720 horsepower at 8,000 RPM
  • Torque: 568 lb-ft of torque at 3,250 RPM

Not only is this the most powerful V8-equipped Ferrari produced outside of a special series, the twin turbocharged V8 offers another remarkable achievement: zero turbo lag. Using turbo rev sensors developed in the 488 Challenge, the F8 Tributo maximizes turbocharger efficiency and ensures you always have the power you need when you need it, no lagging.

Ferrari F8 Tributo 0-60 and Top Speed

The F8 Tributo performance specs are just one part of the picture; track times help give you the full story.

  • 0 – 62 mph: 2.9s
  • 0 – 124 mph: 7.8s
  • Top Speed: 211 mph

Ferrari set out with a goal of making these impressive numbers easy to access, integrating the engine and aerodynamics with the Slide Slip Control system. The latest in vehicle dynamics control systems, Slide Slip Control improves drivers’ control, with the F8 Tributo upgrading from version 6.0 to version 6.1.

Ferrari F8 Tributo Aerodynamics and Design

It makes a kind of sense for the Ferrari F8 Tributo aerodynamics to feel familiar — the vehicle is quite literally a tribute to what came before, inside and out. The Tributo is as much a product of its past as it is an arrow into the future, taking inspiration from many models that came before, including:

  • A louvered clear engine cover (lightweight Lexan) pays homage to the F40
  • A wraparound rear spoiler is inspired by the 308 GTB
  • A front end with an S-Duct originally featured on the 488 Pista

Ferrari’s involvement in the GT and Challenge championships bringing state-of-the-art aerodynamic innovations to the F8. Beyond lightweight carbon fiber bodywork, you’ll find

  • S-Duct: The 488-inspired S-Duct directs high-pressure flows up, resulting in a significant increase in downforce over the 488.
  • Front Air Intakes: The compact LED headlights aren’t just a stunning design element; they also allow for front-end air intakes to increase airflow in the wheel arch for brake cooling.
  • Side Air Intakes: A new front radiator layout allows the flat undertray to channel hot air and reduce thermal interaction with the wheel arch airflow, reducing the temperature of air by 15 degrees.
  • Rear Spoiler: The signature element of the F8 Tributo’s rear, the spoiler has been refined to increase downforce over the outgoing 488 GTB, featuring three turning vanes inside the spoiler that recompress the air toward the vehicle’s wake and reduce drag.
