How do you improve on perfection? For me, thewas a harmony of outrageous on-track performance and remarkably good on-road manners. It's my favorite modern super-sports car.
And so I had some misgivings when taking delivery of the F8 Tributo. Yeah, it has more power and fresh looks and a series of other tweaks that clearly establish it as the 488 successor it's meant to be. But modern succession doesn't necessarily mean improvement. Take the, for example. It's superior to the that came before in virtually every way -- and yet I'm not sure that I prefer the new one. Faster, better, yes, but also edgier and maybe even too sharp.
I couldn't help but wonder whether the F8 Tributo would suffer the same fate as I watched it roll off the truck and into the real world. I was, at least, immediately confident I'd have no concerns on the aesthetics front. While I generally liked the look of the car when I first saw it in Geneva last year, it's not until something steps out into the sun that you can really get a good look at it. Here, the F8 looks good -- even in the demure black this one's been dipped in.
