Earlier this year, the 2019 Detroit Auto Show ended up shaking up the automotive industry with stunning debuts. Just when we’re thinking that the dust is starting to settle, the 2019 Geneva Motor Show pops up. Moreover, it is brimming with jaw-dropping entries. One of the biggest showstoppers is the 2020 Ferrari F8 Tributo. It’s certainly a beautiful supercar, but what lies under the hood is the reason for all the hype. According to the Italian carmaker, this is the most powerful V8 model to date to roll off their assembly line.
The brand describes it as “a celebration of excellence” and “represents the highest expression of the company’s classic two-seater Berlinetta.” Backing up their big claim is a 3.9-liter V8 engine that produces 710 horsepower with 568 lb-ft of torque. Furthermore, testing shows that this newcomer can manage to sprint from zero 0 62 mph in 2.9 seconds. Boasting a top speed of 211 miles per hour, this is one mean machine that will tear its rivals to pieces.
Borrowing some elements from the 488 Pista, the 2020 Ferrari F8 Tributo pays homage to some of its predecessors. The quad taillights is a subtle throwback to F430, while see-through Lexan mid-engine cover reminds us of the F40, Needless to say, but these small details will likely resonate with fans of the prancing pony. Information still remains scarce, but we now sources reveal that new brake-cooling intakes are available. Meanwhile, the new Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer gives owners more control over its handling. Overall, this is one supercar to watch out for when it comes out.
