Ferrari F8 Tributo Specs and Engine Details

Ferrari F8 Tributo
The Ferrari F8 Tributo’s specs make it clear: this model is not just an evocatively styled work of automotive art, it’s also a genuine powerhouse on the track. Driving it is a thrill, even on a normal highway between Chicago and St. Louis, but we think you’ll appreciate it even more when you take a look at the numbers beyond the white-knuckle thrills.

F8 Tributo Output

  • Engine: 3.9L twin-turbocharged V8
  • Transmission: 7-Speed dual-clutch transmission
  • Horsepower: 710 horsepower
  • Torque: 568 lb-ft of torque

The engine output of the F8 Tributo matches the 488 Pista and offers 50 hp more than the outgoing 488 GTB. Add in the fact that it has zero turbo lag, and it’s not surprising to see the praise this mid-engined Prancing Horse has been getting. Have we mentioned that it’s the most powerful V8-equipped non-special series Ferrari that’s been produced?

F8 Tributo Top Speed

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

The impressive twin-turbo V8 makes itself immediately apparent when you jump off the line. It doesn’t only impress on the track, though: it’s just as thrilling on the road. Expect rapid, smooth upshifts and the ability to execute hairpin turns with ease, and Ferrari’s Side Slip Angle Control traction- and stability-control program will help you remain in control of the considerable power at your fingertips.

F8 Tributo Aerodynamics

It’s fitting that the F8’s name literally means “tribute.” Not only does it hearken to earlier models — with an unmistakable resemblance to the 488 GTB and a louvered rear window reminiscent of the F40 — its carbon fiber bodywork also boasts practical aerodynamic benefits to make the most of its powertrain. Beyond the sculpted bodywork, there are several other aerodynamic factors at play in this Prancing Horse, including:

  • Front Air Intakes: Compact LED headlights allow for brake-cooling air intakes that facilitate airflow throughout the wheel arch.
  • S-Duct: The S-Duct deflects high pressure flow upwards through the vent on the car’s bonnet. A redesign of this feature for the F8 Tributo has resulted in a 15% increase in downforce compared to the 488 GTB.
  • Side Air Intakes: The new front radiator layout places the radiator packs tilted rearward, improving management of cooling airflow.
