Ferrari F8 Tributo
The last non-hybrid V8 to be produced by Ferrari (barring a special edition or two), the F8 Tributo uses the same award-winning 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8 as the 488 GTB, but tuned to produce a whopping 720hp and 770Nm of torque. The F8 is also the fastest series production mid-engine Ferrari until date – it has a claimed 0-100kph time of 2.9sec, a 0-200kph time of just 7.8sec and can go on to hit a top whack of 340kph. Compared to the 488, the F8 is 40kg lighter and produces 15 percent more downforce thanks to the various design changes. Styling cues are borrowed from a number of famous Ferraris – the twin rear light clusters are a modern interpretation of the units featured on the first eight-cylinder Berlinetta, the 1975 308 GTB, while the louvres on the transparent engine cover are a design reference to the F40.
