    • Say hello to the new 720 hp 2020 Ferrari F8 Tributo (488 GTB successor)

      Ferrari teased a new model and here is the reveal. Introducing the Ferrari F8 Tributo. It does not look all that different now does it? It is new but at the same time familiar. Why? Because it has the general 488 GTB shape and drivetrain while incorporating Portofino styling cues.


      It essentially matches the output of the 488 Pista and is 88 pounds lighter than the 488 GTB. Again, it feels like a restyled 488 Pista and more of a refresh than a new model.

      The look is gorgeous:




      Is this enough to take the McLaren 720S down? No, it is still the same fairly heavy chassis and McLaren has Ferrari beaten with their carbon tub:


      Not exactly a whole new car but a nice update and certainly a beautiful design.

      The 720S has nothing to fear but we may see a 720 LT soon.

        I feel like the McLaren quality stuff is overblown.

        The portrait based interface of the mclaren is not as advanced nor does it have the functionality of the other 2.

        The R8 has a better interior than the Huracan with its virtual cockpit.

        The ferrari feels special, you need to touch the quality; the advanced design also depicts what it is to be a leader.

        140 kg / 310 pounds lighter than the 488 is pretty substantial. I like where Ferrari is going with this.

        Ferrari lies about weight more than insecure women.

        I may be wrong but dry weight is listed as 1330 kg above. I believe the 488 dry weight comes in at 1470 kg? Different numbers from different resources. Can't find an actual picture of a 488 on a scale.

        With that said - I might very well be wrong and as pointed out above the weights communicated by Ferrari rarely holds true.

        Dry weight in the 488 GTB is listed as 1,370kg by Ferrari.

        It's not even 100 pounds:

        In addition, weight reduction measures have cut the car’s dry weight by 40 kg compared to the 488 GTB, further enhancing both responsiveness and driving pleasure without impinging on interior comfort.

        Slightly more power, less weight, better aero, updated electronics. Same platform as the 488.
