Pure Soul Injection: The KEYVANY HP850 Upgrade For the Ferrari F8 Tributo

850 horsepower and 218 mph seems more appropriate for a Ferrari model

We like to think that most of Ferrari’s models are close to perfection from the factory, and they don’t need too many updates. Take the F8 Tributo for example - the replacement for the 488 GTB - it has everything it needs: a great exterior look, a luxurious cabin, and all the power it needs. But Keyvany - a German-based tuner - thinks that there is room for lots of improvement, so it updated pretty much every aspect of the F8 Tributo.

From the factory, the Ferrari F8 Tributo is powered by a twin-turbo 3.9-liter V-8 engine that delivers a total of 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque. Keyvany is upgrading the V-8 engine with the addition of its latest HP850 performance program. The tuner reprogrammed the ECU and installed a new valve-controlled high-performance exhaust system with catalytic converters and optimized end pipes. As a result, the F8 now delivers a total of 850 horsepower at 7,800 rpm and 680 pound-feet of torque at 3,300 rpm. With the extra power, the 0 to 60 mph sprint time went down from 2.9 to 2.8 seconds, while top speed was increased from 340 km/h (211 mph) to 351 km/h (218 mph).

A car with that amount of power requires a proper look. So Keyvany is offering an extreme bodywork kit made from carbon fiber - changes that increase downforce on the front and rear axles but also optimize the ventilation of the drive unit. Changes start up front where pretty much all the elements were replaced. There is a new bonnet, new front lip, a new front apron mask with inserts on both the upper and the lower part, plus a new wing splitter attachment. Even the air intakes are new and larger. Changes continue on the sides with the addition of new air intakes and side skirts, while in the back the tuner added a new diffuser, plus a new air intake and skirt insert. You can choose between two different types of wheels: there’s a 5 twin-spoke design and one in Y design. Both are sized 21 inches in the front axle and 22 inches in the rear. They can be painted black, powder-coated, or painted in body color.

How about the interior?

The F8 Tributo comes with an amazing interior from the factory, but Keyvany modified it so that now it is the perfect symbiosis of sports functionality and luxurious ambiance. The cabin is trimmed in a combination of high-quality leather and carbon fiber. The standard steering wheels is replaced by a new, full size sports one with an airbag, the door entry strips, and the shift paddles are made from carbon fiber, while the pedals are made out of aluminum. The tuner is offering its customers the possibility to go for any imaginable option, including illuminated door sill trims, embroidered floor mats, or a sparkling starry sky.
