The Italian supercar brand has announced the replacement for the Ferrari 488 GTB – it’s called the Ferrari F8 Tributo.
The prancing horse brand has revealed a set of official photographs that show the 720PS car – powered by an upgraded version of the 3.9-litre turbocharged V8 engine, it is claimed to offer the highest specific output for regular production cars.
The F8 Tributo replaces the 488 GTB, with a host of changes – with some visual clues that Ferrari claim allude to a shift towards a future design language. This is dictated by the aerodynamic requirements of the new car, with the Pista-Inspired S-duct adding a claimed extra 15% to the downforce. Cooling is also improved with the new sleeker LED headlights and the larger cooling paths to the wheel arches.
The rear bay gets a Lexan window pane with built in louvres that are used to vent the engine bay without getting in the flow path of the blown spoiler at the rear, in itself harking back to the classic F40.
The interiors have also been rejigged, with a new generation HMI, round air vents, new 7″ passenger interface and a new steering wheel.
The car also gets a new generation of side-slip angle control and Ferrari dynamic enhancer to match the smaller steering wheel and the car itself is 40 kgs lighter than the 488 GTB. Max torque is 770Nm and Ferrari claim zero turbo lag in performance.
