Ferrari has introduced the F8 Tributo delivers 720 cv without the slightest hint of turbo lag and produces an evocative soundtrack. Instantaneous power is matched by exceptional handling thanks to the integration of state-of-the-art aerodynamics solutions derived from Ferrari’s track experience.
Designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre, the F8 Tributo is essentially a bridge to a new design language that will continue to emphasize Ferrari’s key characteristics of high performance and extreme aerodynamic efficiency. In fact, the F8 Tributo is the most aerodynamically efficient series-production mid-rear-engined berlinetta ever designed.
The F8 Tributo replaces the 488 GTB and, in the range, is the model with the highest performance matched by the greatest driver involvement. There are significant improvements across the board, aimed at providing even better control on the limit along with greater onboard comfort.
The new Ferrari F8 Tributo punches out 50 cv more than the 488 GTB, is 40 kg lighter and benefits from a 10% improvement in aerodynamic efficiency along with the latest version of the Side Slip Angle Control, now in 6.1 guises.
Scuderia South Africa CEO, Mervyn Eagles, comments: “We are delighted to introduce the latest multi-award-winning Ferrari V8 Turbo engined model to the Prancing Horse family. The F8 Tributo with all its unique characteristics unquestionably sets the market benchmark for exhilarating performance, ease of handling and of course, driving pleasure.”
In honour of showcasing the F8 Tributo on South Africa soil, the official Ferrari dealer has partnered with the Anne Van Dyk Cheetah Centre to commemorate another African icon too; an icon that shares many attributes with that of the Ferrari F8 Tributo.
“An African cheetah, officially named Tributo has been adopted by Scuderia South Africa to celebrate a likeness of beauty, performance, agility and of course, speed. Both the F8 Tributo and our cheetah, boast strong aesthetics, handle corners with precision and both can reach speeds of 0-100km/h in just under 3 seconds. As the official Ferrari dealer in South Africa we are proud to support and endorse the conservation of these rare and glorious creatures.” adds Eagles.
The Ferrari F8 Tributo will continue its roadshow throughout South Africa as it is revealed at the official dealers in Durban and Cape Town later this month. Tributo, the cheetah will remain at her home at the Anne Van Dyk Cheetah Centre where she can be visited by the Ferrari family and continue in her mission in educating communities about her fellow rare and endangered species.
