Birth of a Ferrari

11w ago

The Ferrari 488 GTB is one of my all time favorite Ferraris, not to mention cars in general. But sadly, it has passed. This is not a day for mourning, however, because its replacement is insanely better, and I love it even more than I did the GTB. Ferrari has decided to call it the F8 Tributo as a tribute, *cough *cough, to the most powerful production V8 in the world. That V8 is right under the hood. It’s a 3.9 liter V8 (obviously) putting out a glorious 720 hp. They also reduced the weight of the car by 88 pounds! Ferrari tried to go for some extra downforce with the carbon spoiler in the back, and the S-duct in the front. They have increased aerodynamic efficiency by 10 percent when compared to the GTB. Can we also talk about the tail lights for a second. I mean, those haven’t been put on a mid-engined V8 Ferrari since the F430. They look absolutely stunning. Most people thought that Ferrari would try and go more for a hybrid car with the GTB replacement, but apparently that will come later because they obviously didn’t do it with this car. I’ve spent enough time talking about tidbits of information, I’m sure you all want to know what it does. Well, I’ll tell you. It goes from nought to 60 in 2.9 seconds, only a twentieth of a second slower than the Pista, which does it in 2.85. The F8 will also hit a claimed top speed of 211 mph. We don’t know how much it will cost, but being a Ferrari, I’d play it safe and say it’s going to take a chunk out of your bank account. You have a bit of time to save for it, since it’s coming out later this year as a 2020 model. Like I said at the beginning, this is not a day for mourning a dead Ferrari, but a time to celebrate the birth of a new one. Enjoy.
