The Ferrari 488 GTB the powerful yet easy-to-drive Supercar that won Motor Trend’s 2017 Best Driver’s Car competition has been replaced with the Ferrari F8 Tributo.
This new Supercar has a 3.9-liter V-8 engine making 710 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque. That’s up 49 hp and 7 lb-ft from the V-8 engine in the 488 GTB.
Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) says the F8 Tributo is its most powerful V-8 series car to date and debuts it next week at the Geneva Motor Show.
By the Maranello Outfit’s estimates, the F8 Tribuno can hit 62 mph in 2.9 secs, with a Top speed is 211 mph.
In addition to more power, the F8 Tributo is lighter and more aerodynamic than the car it replaces.
Ferrari says it’s 88 pounds lighter than the 488 GTB, and boasts a 10% improvement in aerodynamic efficiency.
Ferrari has redesigned the S-Duct that we first saw on the 488 Pista to improve down-force 15% compared to the 488 GTB. New brake cooling intakes up front help improve airflow.
The Ferrari F8 Tributo comes with a new version of the Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer, which makes controlling the lateral dynamics in high-performance situations more controllable. This feature can be activated in Race mode for the 1st time. Ferrari also redesigned the steering wheel rim, making it smaller in diameter.
Visually, the F8 Tributo is similar to the 488 GTB its predecessor. But you will notice Ferrari has returned to the twin tail-lamp design seen on early 8-cylinder berlinettas.
The interior is also reminiscent of the 488 GTB, including the thin transmission tunnel.
Still, Ferrari says every element of the dash, door panels, and tunnel has been redesigned. You will also find new round air vents and a 7-in touchscreen.
Ferrari’s Brand: Ferrari became the world’s strongest brand, with a score of 94.8 out of 100 and an AAA+ rating just last month.
Ferrari is the Aristocrat of the automotive sector.
HeffX-LTN overall technical outlook for RACE is Bullish across the board, and there is very little resistance here and none above 140.26. All of our Key indicators are Very Bullish in here.
