Best of the Current Ferrari Model Lineup

Ferrari continues to be an ever-present figure when it comes to producing some of the world’s most revered and sought after exotic automobiles. Striking a fine balance between forward-looking innovation and staying true to its heritage, the Prancing Horse marque has some exciting and unequivocally Ferrari-esque projects in the pipeline.

While the lineup has been subject to a quantifiable consolidation for 2021 – with the retirement of the legendary 488 and the phasing out of its family-friendly GTC4 Lusso – Ferrari fans still have a lot to be excited about. The Ferrari Roma, unveiled in the later part of 2020, had its first full-season debut for the 2021 model year.

There is also a new Ferrari SUV in the works called the Purosangue, which is slated for release late in 2021 as a MY2022. While the SUV will be the GTC4 Lusso’s logical successor, there is little doubt that it is a direct retort to long-time-rival Lamborghini’s highly acclaimed Urus. Ferrari will look to claim their piece of this real estate and usurp their adversaries in the process, so we should expect something truly epic.

Returnees to the 2021 roster remain fundamentally unchanged, with such models as the Portofino, F8 Tributo, 812 Superfast, and SF90 Stradale each bringing their own unique purpose and interpretations of the Ferrari experience to the table.

Here are the best brand new Ferrari models you can purchase today.

Ferrari F8 Tributo

Ferrari F8 Tributo

Base MSRP: $280,000 USD

The Ferrari F8 Tributo continues an impressive line of “entry-level” mid-engined sports cars within the Ferrari model lineup. Of course, no Ferrari will ever be considered economical in the grand scheme of things, and the F8 Tributo certainly doesn’t buck this trend. A car that is greater than the sum of its parts, the F8 Tributo is a highly capable all-rounder, which manages to stand out amongst an elite club of daily supercars which continue to redefine the exotic car experience and move the measuring stick higher.

The Ferrari F8 Tributo in my opinion, is the pragmatist’s choice; the one that will provide you with all of the best characteristics of a Ferrari automobile, in a single package. You just can’t go wrong with this car – it’s just that incredible. Available in both a coupe and Spider configuration.

Ferrari Roma

Ferrari Roma

Base MSRP: $222,620 USD

Ferrari’s latest true grand touring sports car offers something really unique and refreshing. Its design is simple; minimalist you could say, as far as the artistry is concerned. Yet, objectively it is a very beautiful car. The inner workings of the Roma are anything but uncomplicated. It features one of the most high-tech cabins of any Ferrari, or car in its class. Its 3.9L engine is as athletic as it is utilitarian, making for a grand tourer that really molds to the character of its owner – or perhaps, it’s the other way around?

Granted it is a Ferrari, but those who want something flashy should look elsewhere within the line-up; or, depending on your cup of tea, outside the brand as a whole. But with the “gentleman’s sports car” now being in vogue, it’s this very characteristic that makes the Roma one of the most desirable cars of its kind. In a low-key sorta way.

Ferrari 812 Competizione

Ferrari 812 Competizione

Base MSRP: $598,000 USD, $600,000 USD (Aperta)

First, the name: it’s officially known as the Ferrari 812 Competizione. But, it can also be called the Ferrari 812 Competizione A(perta). That’s because Ferrari surprised us by unveiling not one, but two versions of this hardcore 812 Superfast variant right from the get go. The latter – meant to replace the 812 GTS – is a Targa counterpart which features a removable carbon fiber roof panel which can be neatly stowed away in a special made-to-measure storage compartment.

Besides the obvious aesthetic differences born from having an open-top configuration, the two cars are identical mechanically. Both the Competizione and Competizione A will be powered by the same 6.5L naturally-aspirated V12 engine. In addition to producing 819 hp and possessing a symphonic 9,500 rpm of vocal range, we now also know that it also churns out 512 lb-ft of torque. Those are the peak figures of course, which are attainable at both 9,250 rpm and 7,000 rpm respectively.

Ferrari 296 GTB

2022 Ferrari 296 GTB

Base MSRP: $280,000 USD (est.)

You’re a hybrid and EV fanatic. Ferrari is your favorite automaker. But the near-7-figure price tag of the SF90 Stradale is a bit of a buzz kill. Well, there’s now a cure for your ailment – the Ferrari 296 GTB. The Ferrari 296 GTB is not a replacement for any models formerly or currently in its product range, with Ferrari stating that it is “creating its own segment”. Price-wise, the 296 GTB is billed as the company’s new ‘entry-level’ mid-engined supercar and is being touted as the automaker’s latest ‘gateway’ to experiencing Ferrari’s race-bred DNA.

In spite (or because) of the car’s hybridized 2.9L twin-turbocharged V6 drivetrain, Ferrari has been emboldened so much by the end-product that they believe it to be the “most fun car to drive in our product range”, both on track and on normal roads. Deliveries won’t begin until 2022, but orders are open right now. No specific word on pricing just yet, though it is expected to hover around the F8 Tributo’s base MSRP of US$277,000.


A new Ferrari F8 Tributo would be a dream car for many already, but as always, there is a market for upgrading even the most precious supercars, companies like Mansory take that to the extreme with complete overhauls of expensive high-end luxury cars and sports cars, but there is a market in between for customers that like to personalize their prized possession without going all-out, and for those, a company like NOVITEC is perfectly suited, with their aerodynamic package for some of the world’s most popular supercars from Lamborghini or Ferrari.

We’ve covered the Ferrari F8 Tributo by NOVITEC a while ago, the Novitec N-Tronic upgrades the twin-turbo V8 together with a high-performance exhaust system from the factory original 720 hp to 802 hp, while a complete body kit available in clear carbon fiber transforms Maranello’s F8 into an aggressive looking Formula One-inspired road car, as for the rear wing, NOVITEC offers multiple options, either a large version that offers massive downforce or a more subtle styled version that draws less attention.

But things change considerably when you go for the famous N-LARGO version from NOVITEC, usually only available in a limited edition, and a lot wider than the factory original model, hence the N-LARGO name, and now we can finally show you what NOVITEC did to the Ferrari F8 Tributo to create their N-LARGO edition on this V8 powered red beauty, only 15 units of the NOVITEC N-LARGO F8T will be available, and for the incredible styling on this two-seater from Italy we have to thank the famous German designer Vittorio Strosek.

To the casual onlooker, this latest N-LARGO might look like any other red Ferrari, but she is far from a factory standard V8 from Maranello, for instance, the rear has been enlarged by 13 cm to a total of 211 cm width, thanks to wider rear fenders that create a stunning hourglass shape with the added bonus of larger air intakes to feed both the V8 engine and the rear disk brakes of fresh air, an additional plus the fact you can now fit 12-inch wide wheels at the rear.

Same for the front fenders, the NOVITEC N-LARGO replacement units widen the standard Ferrari F8 Tributo by 7 cm and come with some stunning, clear carbon fiber vents above the wheels, in this case, massive 9.5×21-inch NOVITEC NF10 NL hi-tech forged wheels made in cooperation with Vossen in the United States, mind you the rear axle gets a staggered 12×22-inch wheel with five, extremely concave delicate twin spokes, tires are 255/30 ZR 21 and 25 ZR 22 respectively.

Because of the wider fenders both front and rear, NOVITEC had to create a bespoke set of side sills to match the increment, and as always the entire aerodynamic package has been extensively tested in the wind-tunnel for optimum performance in channeling air, but also to make sure they look good, which brings us the front and rear design of this new N-LARGO. The front spoiler receives a pair of side fins for that aggressive look, while the rear comes with its own styling … both are completely replacing the factory original parts to make sure they match the wider fenders perfectly.

The rear comes with a  so-called ‘Ducktail’ spoiler, still rather large, but more integrated into the design than a high rear wing on tall struts, add the NOVITEC rear diffuser for optimum downforce on this new N-LARGO, and just to really finish the aggressive styling on the exterior, NOVITEC offers a new engine cover, available in clear carbon fiber, and with an integrated air intake that boasts a scoop mounted just above the roofline, and it effectively optimizes air circulation in the engine bay.

And while you can opt for all these NOVITEC N-LARGO parts to be painted to match the car, I would go for this clear carbon fiber finish, and even get the optional cowl for the front hood in the same lightweight material, you can also get carbon fiber covers for the factory mirrors, however, NOVITEC also lists N-LARGO bespoke side mirrors and quarter lights … all made from lightweight carbon fiber naturally.

The NOVITEC N-LARGO rides about 35 mm lower to the street than the original Ferrari F8 Tributo, which could cause problems getting into your garage, or drive onto a speed bump, but fear not, NOVITEC has you covered here too, raising the car by about 40 mm at the touch of a button … just press the button again to go back to a more ground-hugging stance, or speed up to 80 km/h after which the car lowers itself automatically.

With looks like this new N-LARGO, you just need the power to match, so NOVITEC can increase the original power output by 98 hp to an impressive 818 hp at 7,960 rpm, with 903Nm of torque at 3,100 rpm, not only by fitting a NOVITEC N-TRONIC control module to the engine but also by installing a bespoke exhaust system with carbon fiber and stainless steel exhaust tips, while the rest of the exhaust system can be made from extremely light INCONEL.

Even with the additional width of the car and the massively wide wheels and tires that also create additional drag, this NOVITEC N-LARGO can still accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 2.6 seconds, getting to 200 km/h takes 7.4 seconds … the impressive top speed is above 340 km/h, with only 15 units to be made you might want to get in touch with NOVITEC quickly if this N-LARGO is something that might interest you.

Mansory Ferrari F8 Tributo

After MANSORY presented the open-top “MANSORY Stallone GTS (MY21)” a few weeks ago, a Spider for the highest demands of open-top driving, the presentation of another super sports car from the Italian noble brand from Maranello follows within a truly short time – the completely new “MANSORY F8XX” based on the Ferrari F8 Tributo.

While the “MANSORY Stallone GTS (MY21)” is primarily designed for MANSORY customers, for whom driving with an open-top is a priority, the “MANSORY F8XX” is clearly and unmistakably aimed in the direction of high performance and uncompromising lightweight construction, in order to do justice to the MANSORY clientele who expect and desire precisely these characteristics from their vehicle.

But as always, a complete vehicle conversion from MANSORY not only impresses with its high technical demands for increased performance but also with its visual appeal, which clearly underlines the technical demands visually.

While the special “Catania Green” paintwork may attract the viewer’s attention at first glance, the countless details of the “MANSORY F8XX”, lovingly and hand-crafted made to the highest standard, succeed in captivating the viewer almost simultaneously, so that the F8XX is able to present itself to the viewer as a harmonious overall work of art.

To achieve this, only the finest ingredients of automotive refinement are used in this complete conversion: lightweight body components made of forged carbon, striking forged and gold-colored sports rims, and various interior modifications made of the finest leather.

Following a tradition of more than 30 years, the luxury manufacturer MANSORY produces its Ferrari aerodynamic components unchanged and exclusively from the ultra-light material carbon. In the case of the “MANSORY F8XX” in the particularly attractive version called “Forged Carbon”.

In addition to the front apron, the side skirts, and the rear apron, one component of the body conversion deserves special attention: the rear wing of the “MANSORY F8XX”, which is divided into two L-shaped angles. A rarely perfect example of how extravagant looks and high technical standards can be combined in harmony.

In addition to the appearance of the “MANSORY F8XX”, the technology of the F8 Tributo has also been extensively revised and refined in detail. While the mid-engined V8 produces an impressive 720 hp and 770 Nm on the crankshaft from its 3.9-liter displacement as standard, the engineers in MANSORY’s in-house engine department were able to increase these figures to an impressive 880 hp and 960 Nm thanks to extensive modifications to the engine management and exhaust system. And this without changing the driveability and excellent response of the standard engine. The corresponding figures for driving performance increase to 354 km/h and the sprint from zero to 100 km/h is reduced to 2.6s.

The high engine power is transferred into maximum performance in combination with adapted suspension components and the “YT.5” rims used for the first time on the “MANSORY F8XX”. These one-piece, ultra-light forged rims in the dimensions 9.5 x 21 and 12 x 22 are used as a wheel-tire combination with high-performance tires in the sizes 255/30 ZR21 (VA) and 335/25 ZR22 (HA).

But the interior is not left untouched either, and so the interior specialists at MANSORY create a sporty atmosphere that once again perfectly combines high functionality, comfort, and design. The passenger compartment of the “MANSORY F8XX” is completely lined in beige leather with white applications and continues the luxury standard that applies to all MANSORY complete conversions at the highest level in the interior. But not only almost all components of the interior are upholstered in leather, but they are also accentuated with carbon in certain areas. A MANSORY sports steering wheel in leather, MANSORY floor mats, and several precisely embroidered MANSORY logos elegantly round off the all-encompassing refinement in the interior.

Ferrari F8 Tributo by Novitec

If a factory standard Ferrari F8 Tributo just isn’t exclusive enough for you, just give Novitec a call and have them transform your Prancing Horse into an 802 hp super car. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h only takes 2.6 seconds, and now the Ferrari doesn’t run out of breath until it reaches 340 km/h.

This increase in performance is thanks to the Novitec engineers development of a custom mapping of two plug-and-play modules, called Novitec N-Tronic, that work in harmony with the standard ECU of the twin-turbo V8. Add the Novitec high-performance exhaust system and the boost from 720 hp to 802 hp is present.

Novitec offers different exhaust options for the Ferrari F8 Tributo, but without a doubt the best one is the lightweight Inconel version, complete with electronic sound management. This Inconel version is also plated with 999 gold, not only for looks, but this material dissipates the heat better (remember the gold surround in the McLaren F1?), and you can even have the 100-cell sports catalyst gold plated to match.

Probably the best part of the Novitec Aero parts for the Ferrari F8 Tributo is the fact you can order them in clear-coated carbon fiber, to get that F1 inspired look on your road car. At the front a two-part spoiler is fitted with flaps on the air intakes, a front hood insert in carbon fiber just completes the F1 look.

Novitec side sills generate a better airflow, and thanks to the carbon fiber mirrors and air deflectors on the side air intakes, the race car looks gets even better. Naturally, you also need a rear wing, and Novitec has options there too, either a large version that offers massive downforce, or a more subtle style version. A new cover can be fitted to the rear diffuser, while a cover for models with a rear-view camera is on the list too.

If you really insist, Novitec will even ship you a complete replacement diffuser for the Ferrari F8 Tributo to fit into the factory rear bumper, add the carbon fiber trim on the engine cover to have the full kit.

The Novitec wheels are made with the service of Vossen, and these forged rims fit the F8 Tributo perfectly, Novitec offers a few different designs for the most discerning customers out there. And on top of that Novitec offers a palette of 72 shades, brushed surface, or polished surface … whichever you prefer.

If you really want to fit a special wheel, you should go for the Novitec NF10 forged wheel, with five, twin spokes and center-lock look. These would be 9×21 at the front and massive 12×22 at the rear, 255/30 ZR 21 and 335/25 ZR 22 tires are fitted, and the Ferrari sits 35mm lower to the street thanks to a set of Novitec Sports springs. if the car is fitted with the front lift system, Novitec can install their own rendition that can raise the car by 40mm when needed.

A fully bespoke interior using Alcantara and leather is no problem at all for the artisans at Novitec, they can even change the design of the factory original upholstery, naturally, some exposed carbon fiber will be possible too.

Lego Speed Champions Ferrari F8 Tributo and 1985 Audi Sport Quattro S1 are 25% bigger

During a week when auto manufacturers are at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show debuting real, drivable cars, Lego has debuted two new toy car kits modeled after the 1985 Audi Sport Quattro S1 and the Ferrari F8 Tributo. The new models also show off an improvement to the Lego Speed Champions series: the kits are now 25 percent bigger.

Lego is expanding its Speed Champions line of blocky car kits with two high-performance rides with very different purposes from very different times. One is a modern supercar, the other is a classic Group B rally car.

The F8 Tributo is an inch high, five inches long, and three inches wide. It wears a clean red color scheme with a black splitter and black diffuser, and the only stickers are the headlights and the badges. The toy design carries over features of the F8 such as the hood and side body scoops, and the tiered taillights. and the rear engine cover.

The S1, which is celebrating its 35th anniversary, has a much busier design. The main body of the car is white and yellow with retrolicious yellow body graphics. Black, gray and red striping add to the scheme, and “Audi,” “Audi Sport,” “Audi Team” and “quattro” stickers are seen on the body, the windshield, the hood and the rear wing. Clustered front rally lights, wheel flares, angular aerodynamic pieces and two sets of wheel designs help make the quattro look as authentic as possible. The car also comes with a miniature racer who can sit in the car and grip the stick shift.

Both the Ferrari and the Audi will be released for January 2020. Each model is listed at $19.99, plus tax.

This Video Takes a Closer Look at the Performance Technology of the Ferrari F8 Tributo

Everything You Need to Know

The Ferrari F8 Tributo is Ferrari’s most-advanced internal combustion engined car ever. While some people decried it too similar to its predecessor, it’s actually a notable step forward for the brand. The F8 Tributo takes each performance aspect up a notch. If that’s not enough, then we don’t know what is.

Ferrari recently released a video that goes into detail about the F8 Tributo’s design and performance technology. It starts with the engine and works its way quickly through the car. It’s only a couple of minutes long, but the video shows how the F8 Tributo sets itself apart from the competition and from previous Ferrari models.

One of the key performance aspects of the car not touched on in the video is the aerodynamics of the car. Ferrari took special care to make sure the car’s aero performance was better than ever before. The spoiler at the rear increases verticle load, the rear of the vehicle is flat, and the front diffuser is designed to improve brake cooling. The rear active rear diffuser is probably the coolest, though. It can impact downforce in the corners and help make the car more slippery through the air during heavy acceleration.

Ferrari is hard at work on its next hybrid models, but until those cars debut, the F8 Tributo is the king of the Prancing Horse’s lineup, and we couldn’t be happier to see it on top.

Watch the Ferrari F8 Tributo in its first official videos

The Ferrari 458 Italia has played a core role for the Italian brand since its debut all the way back in 2009 and has been in a perpetual state of improvement throughout the 10 years. It has evolved through numerous stages and earned a new name at each step, from the Speciale to the 488 GTB to the Pista to the newest model, the F8 Tributo. Although each car has the same genes, every one has a slightly different look due to numerous aerodynamic tweaks and subtle bodywork changes. The new angles are obvious in the Tributo’s first official videos released this week.

The video above premieres the car in a mountainous environment with all the curvy roads one could ever need. It flips between close-ups of the car, driving shots, and hazy smoke-filled displays of power. The only negative is the super-quick cuts don’t allow much time to stare.

The videos below put the F8 Tributo’s aerodynamics and power on display. Several parts of the Tributo’s salacious body is functional, including the front S-Duct, the front splitter, the underside vortex generators, the beefier rear spoiler, and the rear diffuser. It also has some hidden tricks using active features. Overall, Ferrari says it has 10 percent better efficiency than the 488 GTB.

Power comes courtesy of a different 458 family member, the 488 Pista. They share Ferrari’s twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8 that makes 710 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque. It’s the most powerful V8 Ferrari has ever put in a car that wasn’t part of a special series. Get more familiar by watching all three clips.

5 Awesome Things About the Ferrari F8 Tributo

Ferrari just released the new F8 Tributo. Critics say it’s too much like the 488 GTB, but we’re of the mind that this is a meaningful step forward for the mid-engine, two-door Berlinetta in Ferrari’s lineup. The car looks absolutely stunning and the engine and aerodynamic improvements are nothing to ignore. The F8 Tributo is a force to be reckoned with, and there’s plenty to like about it. Here are five things that stand out.

1. The Turbo V8 Makes 710 hp

F8 Tributo

F8 Tributo

Ferrari went with a turbocharged V8 engine in the F8 Tributo, and we can’t blame them. The engine is a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 to be exact. It manages to punch out a whopping 710 hp and a super strong 568 lb-ft of torque. That’s enough to be right on par with the competition from McLaren and Lamborghini.

2. 0 to 60 mph in 2.9 Seconds, 211 mph Top Speed

F8 Tributo

F8 Tributo

Speaking of being right on par with the competition, the F8 Tributo can make the 0-60 mph sprint in as little as 2.9 seconds. It can continue on in its run and hit 124 mph in just 7.8 seconds. The car’s top speed is 211 mph, and that’s right up there with the best from McLaren and Lamborghini.

3. It’s More Aerodynamic Than Ever

The F8 Tributo takes what former Ferrari mid-engine supercars have done in terms of aerodynamics and gone a bit further. The car is more aerodynamic than ever and features what Ferrari calls an “S-Duct” on the front of the car. This directs air over the front and forces the nose of the car down. It is supposed to increase downforce by 15 percent.

4. There’s a Louvered Lexan Engine Cover

F8 Tributo

F8 Tributo

This is a feature that comes straight out of the Ferrari history books. The legendary Ferrari F40 featured a similar engine cover, and the addition of this to the new F8 Tributo is a not so subtle head nod to that car. The louvered Lexan engine cover will likely go down as one of the key standout features of the F8 Tributo, and we can’t imagine anyone not loving the look. It lets you get a peek at the engine while still keeping the car’s sleek lines.

5. The Interior Has a Classic, Driver-Focused Appeal

Too often automakers try to really pack in the technology and features, and it makes the car look rather silly on the inside. When you look at the F8 Tributo’s interior you see a simple (by contrast) interior that’s extremely attractive. It’s all black, and the instruments inside the cabin are all driver-focused. It’s not a huge departure from the 488 GTB, and that’s fine. 

Overall, the F8 Tributo is a killer car and a move forward for Ferrari. It’s a significant change from the 488 GTB while still utilizing much of what worked well in that car.

Ferrari F8 Tributo Details Released

Say Goodbye to the 488 GTB

Ferrari promised to reveal new info about its 488 GTB replacement and here it is. The car’s named the F8 Tributo and it carries on what makes the two-seater Berlinetta so good. The F8 Tributo keeps a V8 engine and some of the sexiest curves we’ve seen in a while.

At first glance, the car’s 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 engine may not seem all that impressive in the age of hybrid-powered supercars, but then you see the power numbers and smile. The engine produces 710 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque. Also, the peak torque comes earlier in the rev range, letting you more easily access all of that power.

This means the F8 Tributo will shoot from a standstill to 60 mph in as little as 2.9 seconds. It’ll hit 124 mph in just 7.8 seconds and 211 mph flat out. The car features the Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer and Side Slip Angle Control. The vehicle appears to borrow quite a lot of equipment from the 488 Pista, which isn’t a bad thing considering that car’s prowess on a racetrack.

The F8 Tributo has a similar overall shape the car it’s replacing. With that said, it doesn’t look the same. The aero kit, headlights, taillights, and the body look different, but the car utilizes the same platform as the 488 GTB. The completely redesigned interior of the car looks breathtaking, but it, too, is similar to the outgoing car. Nothing is the same, but it has a very similar overall layout with improvements where needed.

The F8 Tributo takes its place in Ferrari’s lineup as the best V8 Berlinetta yet to come from the brand. It’s a notable improvement over the 488 GTB without throwing away everything that car got right. Ferrari will bring the car to the Geneva Motor Show where you can see it in person.
