Replacing the 488 GTB in the Prancing Horse lineup, the F8 Tributo is a stunning new mid-engine sports car. It’s only natural to compare the Ferrari F8 Tributo and Ferrari 488 Pista — a special series edition of the outgoing 488 line — to see how the old measures up to the new. They’ve got a lot of similarities, but the F8 Tributo does have some tricks up its sleeves, largely focused on comfort and driving ease.
Both the F8 Tributo and 488 Pista are powered by a 3.9L Twin-Turbo V8 that produces 710 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque, and both boast a top speed of 211 hp. While the F8 Tributo offers more power than the 488 GTB, its output matches that of the special series 488 Pista. With all lightweight options equipped, the F8 Tributo is also heavier than the 488 Pista by 111 pounds, and the Pista can also reach 62 mph from a standstill slightly faster than the Tributo.
The interior of the F8 Tributo boasts some comfort-focused enhancements over the 488 Pista. For the driver, there’s a smaller-diameter steering wheel, and there is a passenger display option for a new 7-inch touchscreen. The steering wheel also features some additional buttons to enhance its functionality, including hands-free phone operation.
Unlike the 488 Pista, the F8 Tributo features the latest iteration of Ferrari’s Side Slip Angle Control and Dynamic Enhancer (FDE+) systems, which are designed to help even non-professional drivers enjoy the car’s drifting prowess in a controlled manner. Compared to the 488, the F8 Tributo also includes a variety of cosmetic differences, including rounded air vents (as opposed to the 388 Pista’s oblong vents) and round taillights.
The F8 Tributo and 488 Pista are very similar vehicles, which makes sense given that Ferrari has stated that the Tributo is “a bridge to a new design language that will continue to emphasize Ferrari’s key characteristics of high performance and extreme aerodynamic efficiency.” Both will provide an incredible driving experience on the track as well as the highways from St. Louis to Indianapolis.

The Ferrari 488 represents a new chapter in the history of Prancing Horse V8-powered supercars. It takes its inspiration from a classic Ferrari model designation — the 308 GTB and F40 — and the Ferrari 488’s specs showcase its world-class capability. As a return to the classic naming convention, there’s a nod to the past; but with up to 661 horsepower, this track-focused supercar blazes a trail into the future.
