The Ferrari F8 Tributo - The Latest Mid-Rear Engine Supercar

Cars

When Ferrari unveiled the F8 Tributo at the Geneva Motor Show, people were surprised by how different it was from its predecessor. This car is sleeker, faster and more powerful than the 488 GTB that it replaces. Even though it's a mid-engine supercar with two seats, it has enough room for luggage and even a couple of passengers if you want to take friends along for the ride.

The twin-turbo 3.9-litre V8 engine makes 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque—a significant increase from last year's 488 GTB which only put out 670 horsepower. With those stats in mind, you can imagine how fast this thing really goes! The car can go from 0 to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds which means that top speed will be around 211 mph (340 km/h).

Ferrari calls its latest mid-rear engine supercar the F8 Tributo.

Ferrari calls its latest mid-rear engine supercar the F8 Tributo. It's a fitting name, because it harkens back to Ferrari's first mid-engine supercar, the 288 GTO. Like that car, this new F8 packs both a twin-turbocharged V8 and dual-clutch transmission (DCT) into its nose cone, allowing for superior weight distribution as well as better packaging for better aerodynamics and driver comfort when compared with conventional automatics.

The F8 name itself may also have been chosen for another reason: it serves as an homage to Enzo Ferrari himself—the founder of the legendary Italian automaker who was born in 1898 and would be turning 110 years old this year.

The F8 Tributo will have an optional telemetry system that records driving behaviour on track days.

Conclusion

The Ferrari F8 Tributo is the latest mid-rear engine supercar from Ferrari. It's a big improvement over 2016's 488 GTB in almost every way, with more power and torque, a faster top speed and quicker acceleration times. The car will be available in both coupe and convertible body styles with two different wheelbase options.
