The Ferrari F8 Tributo is a mid-engine supercar built as the successor to the 488 GTB.
The Ferrari F8 Tributo is the new mid-rear-engined sports car that represents the highest expression of the Prancing Horse's classic two-seater berlinetta. It is a car with unique characteristics and, as its name implies, is an homage to the most powerful V8 in Ferrari history.
The F8 Tributo uses the same engine from the 488 Pista, a 3.9 L twin-turbocharged V8 engine which has a power output of 720 PS (530 kW; 710 hp) and 770 N⋅m (568 lb⋅ft) of torque, making it the most powerful conventional V8-powered Ferrari produced to date. Specific intake plenums and manifolds with optimised fluid-dynamics improve the combustion efficiency of the engine, thanks to the reduction of the temperature of the air in the cylinder, which also helps boost power. The increase in performance is provided in a more reactive way thanks to lightening solutions on the rotating masses, such as the F1 derived titanium connecting rods. The exhaust layout and the Inconel manifolds have been completely modified up to the terminals. The F8 Tributo also uses turbo rev sensors, developed in the 488 Challenge, to maximise the efficiency of the turbochargers based on the demand for power from the pedal. The transmission is a 7-speed dual clutch automatic unit with improved gear ratios.
Several new software features are installed on the F8 which are controlled via the manettino dial on the steering wheel. The car is equipped with Ferrari's latest Side Slip Angle Control traction- and stability-control program. Additionally, the Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer, an electronic program for managing drifts, can now be used in the Race drive mode. Claimed manufacturer performance for the F8 Tributo is 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in 2.9 seconds, 0–200 km/h (0–124 mph) in 7.6 seconds, with a top speed of 340 km/h (211 mph). Ferrari also stated that the Tributo's downforce has been increased by 15 percent as compared to the 488 GTB.
The Ferrari F8 Tributo was added in the Ferrari Season Update as a high-end Class A car with the following rank statistics:
- Stock rank: 3,007 ( 50)
- rank: 3,183
- rank: 3,387 ( 23)
- rank: 3,574 ( 27)
- rank: 3,825 ( 36)
- rank: 4,073 ( 52)
- rank: 4,305 ( 62)
The F8 Tributo is extremely agile overall and is highly competitive in both events and multiplayer. It has the second highest handling stat in the game, only behind the McLaren Senna, as well as quick acceleration and good nitro efficiency.
The F8 Tributo is very effective in multiplayer due to being very easy to drive. However, blueprints for it are difficult to obtain, and it only outperforms other high end Class A cars at 5 or 6, so unless the player has it at high stars, it will most likely not be particularly useful.
The F8 Tributo was only available during its Special Event.
