Ferrari’s replacement for the 488 GTB features the high-revving V-8 from the Pista

The 2020 Ferrari F8 Tributo is an entry-level supercar that the Maranello-based company launched in 2019. The F8 Tributo replaced the 488 GTB, introduced in 2015, but it’s essentially a mid-cycle upgrade and not a brand-new car. The supercar replaces the 488 GTB in the same way that the 812 Superfast and GTC4Lusso replaced the F12berlinetta and FF, respectively, with the facelift accompanied by a nameplate change.

The upgrade is rather significant as far as design goes. Not only sporting new features front and rear, but the F8 Tributo also boasts more aggressive aerodynamics, which are based on the track-ready 488 Pista. The F8 also shares underpinnings with the Pista and generates the same 710 horsepower. The F8 Tributo arrives just in time for the facelifted Lamborghini Huracan Evo and the relatively new McLaren 720S. Let’s find out how they compare.

Replace the 488 Spider on your desktop with the 2020 F8 Spider!

When Ferrari decided to replace the 488 Spider, we go the F8 Spider – a drop-top version of the F8 Tributo with a carry over of technology and chassis technology from the track-bred 488 Pista. It might not be quite as dynamic as the 488 Pista, but third V-8 powered Italian is good for 710 horsepower and 569 pound-feet of torque – enough to push 60 mph breeze through your hair in just 2.9 seconds. As the epitome of topless performance, the F8 Spider competes against the Lamborghini Huracan Spyder and the McLaren 720S Spider, but we’re so stuck on the F8’s design that we’ve decided to feature it as our wallpaper of the day. We’ve chosen our favorite and posted it below, but there’s also a gallery further down the page for you to choose your favorite from. Go ahead and pick your favorite – it’s free!

2020 Ferrari F8 Spider - Quirks and Facts

The Ferrari F8 Spider Is Almost As Quick As The 488 Spider Pista

Although somewhat overshadowed by the reveal of the last front-engined V-12 Ferrari convertible - the 812 GTS - the new Ferrari F8 Spider still enchanted the right people. Largely favorable reactions to its exterior appearance demonstrate that Ferrari Design Studio knows a thing or two about design even without the help from Pininfarina. Interestingly enough, neither the 812 nor the F8 Spider wore the trademark Rosso Corsa color at their reveal, but they have still picked up a lot of publicity.

The F8 Spider, despite gorgeous, isn’t exactly a lot different compared to the F8 Tributo. The only notable change is, of course, the removable hardtop that stows under the rear tonneau cover in 14 seconds. It needs the same time to fold like the one in the Ferrari 812 GTS.

Ferrari’s replacement for the 488 Spider is just as powerful as the track-ready 488 Pista

The Ferrari F8 Spider is the convertible version of the F8 Tributo. It replaces the outgoing Ferrari 488 Spider in the lineup and just like its coupe counterpart, it features technology and underpinnings from the track-bred 488 Pista. While not as dynamic as the 488 Pista Spider, it’s a solid improvement over the 488 Spider. The F8 Spider joins a prestigious bloodline of drop-top V-8 sports cars that begun with the iconic 308 GTS back in 1977.

Ferrari’s most powerful V-8 convertible alongside the 488 Pista Spider, the F8 Spider arrives just in time to compete with the Lamborghini Huracan Evo Spyder. It also goes against the McLaren 720S Spider, yet another fine example of the high-performance sports car market. Find out what sets apart the F8 Spider from its predecessors and how it compares with its rivals in the detailed review below.

The Ferrari F8 Spider - A Topless Beauty You Don't Deserve

The Ferrari F8 Spider - A Topless Beauty You Don’t Deserve

Ferrari keeps seeing fastballs, and it keeps knocking them out of the park

Like the Ferrari 458 Italia and the Ferrari 488 GTB before it, we all knew that it was only a matter of time before Ferrari introduced the roofless version of the recently unveiled Ferrari F8. It didn’t take long — roughly six months if you’re counting — because the Ferrari F8 Spider is here, and it is a certified show-stopper. It’s not an accident that Ferrari is using the platform of the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show to showcase its latest roadster model, or “Spider,” as Maranello prefers to call it. It did a similar thing when it introduced the F8 Tributo earlier this year at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The F8 Roadster, though, takes center stage this time as Ferrari’s latest stunner. It’s lighter and more powerful than the 488 Spider, the model that it’s directly succeeding. It can even go toe-to-toe with the 488 Spider’s more sinister alter ego, the 488 Pista Spider. This is the all-new, soul-snatching Ferrari F8 Spider. Looks like it’s flex-season for Ferrari once again.

Ferrari Just Detailed the F8 Tributo’s Aerodynamics and It’s Sheer Genius

Ferrari show yet again that they master the art of wind whispering with the 488’s replacement

You can say what you want about the Ferrari F8 Tributo: that it’s not genuinely a brand-new car, that it doesn’t offer mild hybridization options given the grandfathered platform or that it looks too much like the 488 Pista. However, you can’t say that Ferrari didn’t go the extra mile when it comes to aerodynamics. In short, the F8 Tributo is a moving field day for the wind.

The Ferrari F8 Tributo was Ferrari’s surprise for the 89th edition of the Geneva Auto Show. It’s the successor of the impressive Ferrari 488 and, in pure Ferrari tradition, it promises to obliterate its elder peer. The 4.0-liter V-8 engine is shared with the 488 Pista, and it puts out 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque. The F8 Tributo is lighter than a standard 488 but slightly heavier than the Pista and slightly slower than a McLaren 720S. With this being said, it still goes from 0 to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds on its way to a top speed of 211 mph, and it is an absolute monster in the corners. How? Thanks to all of those winglets, fins, and creases in the body.

10 Facts Will Show You Why The Ferrari F8 Tributo Is The Superhero of Supercars

This is the new Ferrari F8 Tributo, or, as I suspect some will call it - the Ferrari Fate (you know, F8, Fate, I know, I’m sad). The first appearance of its sexy body will happen at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show and we all have to be thrilled. It is a new Ferrari. One that replaces the magnificent 488 GTB. It is better in every measurable way than the 488 GTB- it’s lighter, quicker, more powerful, and sticks better to the ground. Plus, it is smarter with all the added driving dynamics trickery. While the Ferrari F8 Tributo seems to be all new, Ferrari actually used an age-old trick to create it. It has the engine we all know, aerodynamic systems already presented on the 488 Pista, and the basic looks heavily inspired by Historical Ferraris. It is a wonderful execution of style, speed, power, and red because of course it is painted in Ferrari red. Hell, this is the new mid-engine Ferrari supercar called the F8 Tributo. This is what you must know about it.

The F8 Tributo’s performance is almost on par with the hot 488 Pista track-focused special

While some suggested Ferrari might give us a first glance at its upcoming SUV, it turns out that the other rumor - the one that said Ferrari was set to show off a successor to the 488 GTB - stood true. Meet the 2020 Ferrari F8 Tributo, an evolution of the 488 GTB with noticeably better performance and plenty of additional enhancements.

The Ferrari F8 is a mid-engine sports car that was introduced in 2019 at the Geneva Motor Show as a 2020 model. It serves as a successor to the Ferrari 488 that was sold from 2015 to 2019. But it happens to feature the same 3.9-liter, twin-turbo, V-8 that powered the 488 Pista that was introduced in 2018 as a more capable model of the 488 GTB. The Ferrari F8 was introduced as the Tributo and sends 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque to the ground through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. It can hit 62 mph in 2.9 seconds (just as fast as the front-engined, 812 Superfast) and 124 mph in as fast as 7.6 seconds. Top speed is 211 mph. Compared to the 488 GTB, the F8 Tributo has 15-percent more downforce thanks to revised aerodynamics despite the fact that it does look similar to the 488.

At the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, Ferarri introduced the F8 Spider, a topless version of the Tributo coupe. Its major claim to fame is that it’s lighter and more powerful than the 488 spider that it succeeds. It features the same 3.9-liter V-8 under the skin and can hit 60 mph in 2.9 seconds, just a shade slower than the Tributo coupe. With the F8 Tributo hitting the wallet for a minimum of $274,280, the F8 spider should cost in the low $300,000 range before options which could, not surprisingly, increase the entry-level price substantially. The F8 Tributo is on sale as of 2019, but the F8 Spider won’t go on sale until sometime in late 2019 or early 2020.
