Lithe and voluptuous, the Ferrari F8 Tributo 2020 is the supercar to choose from if you like your automotive performance packaged in undeniably glamorous wrap, and who doesn’t? With its chiseled panels and windblown profile, the F8 Tribute looks more beautiful than the cheeky one, setting it apart from other cars in the Ferrari stable. This coupe is new to the Ferrari lineup for the 2020 model year, stepping in to replace the outgoing 488GTB. Remarkably fast, the F8 Tribute is driven by the same 710-hp V-8 that lives under the hood of the 488 Pista. This attractive coupe costs more than an Ivy League education, but its price is justified by its winning styling and impressive performance. The F8 Tribute makes its debut for the 2020 model year.
Coupe: $ 279,450
Interior, Comfort and Cargo
The F8 Tributo offers two-passenger seating inside a cabin wide enough to provide pleasant and comfortable accommodation. Contrast stitching and sporty design cues help give the interior a performance-themed aesthetic that matches that of the car’s sheet metal. The most notable deficiency of the cab concerns rearward visibility. The rear view is hampered by the blinds on the rear window. Many exotics are very low on cargo space, and the F8 Tribute is no exception. The carrying capacity is seven cubic feet.
Infotainment and connectivity
All F8 Tributo coupes come with a six-speaker audio system, as well as a Bluetooth phone and audio streaming. The list of standard technology features also includes a pair of LCD monitors and an integrated navigation system with a voice activation function. The list of options includes a 7.0-inch touchscreen. Integration with Apple CarPlay is offered, but Android Auto is not available.
Engine, Transmission and Performance
The F8 Tribute is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.9-liter V-8 that produces 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque. All models are rear-wheel drive, and a seven-speed automatic transmission shifts the gears. This Ferrari is fast enough to make an indelible impression. We estimate that it is capable of running from a neutral point at 60 mph in approximately 2.8 seconds. The handling is precise and rewarding. The F8 Tribute’s engine beats a pleasantly sonic note as it does its job, and the brakes do a masterful job of stopping this coupe quickly.
Fuel economy and real-world MPG
Fuel economy for the 2020 Ferrari F8 Tribute stands at 15/19 mpg city / highway, according to EPA estimates. That’s better mileage than you’ll get from rivals like the Lamborghini Huracán (up to 13/18 mpg).
Driver Assistance and Safety Features
The Ferrari F8 Tribute 2020 has not received an overall crash test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Supercars often fall short in the area of driver assistance technology, and this is the case with the F8 Tribute. Amenities such as a blind spot warning system are not offered. Key security features include:
> Standard backup camera
> Standard rear parking sensors
Warranty and maintenance coverage
When it comes to its limited powertrain and warranties, Ferrari’s coverage matches the protection provided by Lamborghini. However, Ferrari outperforms this rival by providing seven years of free scheduled maintenance. Lamborghini vehicles do not offer free scheduled maintenance.
> The limited warranty covers 3 years or unlimited miles
> Free scheduled maintenance covers 7 years or unlimited miles
