The Ferrari F8 Tributo is the last of the nonhybrid V8s

Cars
Welcome to the Ferrari stand at the 2019 [UNKNOWN] Motor Show. And behind me is the new Ferrari F8 Tributo. Now it's got a sort of face lift I suppose of the 488, which some might claim is actually a face lift of the 458. So it's a face lift of a face lift Something to be said is chasing the 720S. It has 710 brake horsepower. It's got 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds, which translates into 4 miles an hour in 7.8 seconds. Well, that makes it 50 brake horsepower up from the 488. It's also 40 kilos lighter than the 488. And it's taken various things from the [UNKNOWN] as well. So we've got obviously the S duct now in the front. It's got 10% more downforce overall. Also you can see the intakes on the side, they were previously split very clearly bottom and top. But now the air intakes for the engine In the back, just in front of what is now a carbon rear wing. It's a bit like I suppose the 812 is to the F12, if that makes sense. And given how much of an improvement the 812 was to the F12, well, we've got hopes for this then I suppose, as well. Other things to mention, of course! In the [UNKNOWN] saving! We have that Lexan rear window, invoking the F 40, how could I forget that? The engine underneath that Lexan cover of course is both still the 3.9 liter twin turbo V8 that we've seen before. Should we be worried about that? Well it's been voted engine of the year for the last three years and engine of the last twenty years as well as they are happy to remind us. So, Still pretty effective. The headlights on the car are now also LEDs, allowing them to be slimmer. Also allowing for an extra touch up above which allows more cooling into the breaks. Inside the the F8, it's a case much like the outside really, of it being an evolution rather than an revolution. It's starting to look perhaps a little bit old, but having said that, it still does an awful lot of things right. These seats, which I always think, they look very artistic rather than sort of being utilitarian. But they hold you really, really well and they're very comfortable. The biggest change in here is actually the steering wheel which is now 30 millimeters narrower across and 9 millimeters Shallow that way, which putting a smaller wheel on a car really can make quite a big difference in the way it feels. Look, Porsche did it, obviously, with their 360 millimeter wheel, so it will be interesting and see what this is like on here. [INAUDIBLE] still here. Now, on the [INAUDIBLE] you have something called the dynamic enhancer which was on CT off. Now they put that down to race as well. And what it means is essentially they say that if you are in race mode than you will be 6% faster around any given corner than you would be with CT off. Race. That's the fastest way apparently. Sitting here, it just feels right so with the analog dialed ahead, I love those arches there. And they're saying that this will be the last V8 without any hybridization. So perhaps this really is something to treasure after all. The last of a breed. Let us know what you think in the comments below. Do you like it? Do you not? Are they just chasing McLaren? [LAUGH] Still feels good. I still really, really want to drive it. I wanna drive the Paster first. I haven't driven that either. I don't know.
