0-62 mph Time
First revealed at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, the new F8 Tributo replaces the 488 in the Ferrari lineup, and while it shares many characteristics with the outgoing model, there are also some key differences, particularly in terms of its interior and exterior design.
While both models feature a 3.9L Trim-Turbo V8 engine, the F8 Tributo manages to squeeze superior performance from its powertrain. It achieves a higher top speed (211 vs. 205 mph), a faster 0-62-mph time (2.9 seconds vs. 3.0 seconds), more horsepower (710 vs. 660), and more torque (568 lb-ft vs. 561 lb-ft) than the outgoing Ferrari 488. It’s as much a triumph of design as one of its powertrain.
Part of the reason the F8 Tributo is able to up the ante on performance over the 488 is because it’s shed weight from the outgoing model: the F8 Tributo is 88 pounds lighter than the 488, weighing in at 2,932 pounds with all lightweight options equipped.
The car’s aerodynamics are also a factor, as the F8 Tributo has 10% advantage over the 488 in terms of aerodynamic efficiency. Some of this is due to the S-Duct, which allows the Tributo’s front end to act as a wing and create downforce. This technology is a staple in Ferrari’s Formula 1 models. Other design changes from the 488 on the F8 Tributo include smaller headlights, new brake cooling intakes, and quad taillights, as well as a Lexan rear windscreen and louvres designed to extract heat from the engine bay.
The F8 Tributo’s interior is completely redesigned from the 488’s, doing away with the two-tone color scheme and featuring a steering wheel that’s two inches smaller in diameter. There’s also a new 7-inch passenger touchscreen display and round air vents. Interior carryovers from the 488 include the iconic manettino and paddle shifters.
The 2020 Ferrari F8 Tributo is an impressive evolution of the 488, and is understandably drawing attention from St. Louis to Indianapolis and across the United States, and you can learn more when you contact Continental Ferrari.

Ferrari has unveiled a new model: the SF90 Stradale. Named after the Prancing Horse’s current Formula 1 racer and displacing the LaFerrari as the automaker’s flagship vehicle, this car is a bold statement, not only because of how much power it offers — 986 hp — but also because of how that power is achieved:…
