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 Pistaa 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.


Performance and Powertrain

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.

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.
