Not unlike the Lamborghini Huracan Evo, which borrows a few tricks from the Huracan Performante, the F8 Tributo, which replaces the 488 GTB, has learned a few tricks from the 488 Pista.
For instance, the newcomer packs the same 720 horsepower output as the special edition, which makes for a 50 hp bump compared to the superseeded model.
In terms of scale friendliness, the F8 Tributo shaves 40 kg off the 488 GTB's weight, while we'll remind you that the Pista takes that number to 90 kilos.
Then we have multiple aero tweaks that come from the said special edition. Nevertheless, the visual mix of the fresh arrival also includes nods to Prancing Horses of the past, such as the F40-like rear window (this iconic Fezza was also animated by a twin-turbo V8, remember?).
So all those who could afford a 488 Pista but didn't see their name being written on the list can now make up for it.
As for the competition, the 720 ponies of the F8 Tributo allow it to give the McLaren 720S a run for its money. And since the British missile only needs 9.7 seconds to complete the quarter-mile sprint (this is LaFerrari territory).
Until we get our hands on more real-life pics of the F8 Tributo, we've brought along another visual delight. Check out the second Instagram post below to see more potential specs for the Italian exotic. Keep in mind that configuring a supercar can be just as much fun as hooning one.
