Slammed Ferrari F8 Tributo Shows Sculpted Widebody, Sits So Low

Why would you dismiss the Ferrari F8 Tributo image we have here as a mere rendering, perhaps a play thing of the Internet, when this is more of a crystal globe? No, really, pixel plays such as this one show us the future of the model, at least as far as the aftermarket side of the industry is concerned.
If you take a look at the way things are going in the 458 modding realm these days, you'll notice all sorts of insane body kits, among others. So the widebody approach rendered on this F8, which comes to complement the factory look, shouldn't come as a surprise - the same thing should happen to the F8 Tributo once it starts aging and its pricing becomes less spicy.

Then there's the microscopic ground clearance - we could see the gap between the fender and the wheel being reduced as soon as the first customers get their cars (since dealers have received examples of the 488 GTB replacement, certain garages might've already been adorned with the newcomer). Heck, here's a Ferrario 488 Pista whose owner installed lowering springs to play with the said gap.

Of course, the fact that this F8 sits so close to the asphalt underneath it leads us to believe that we're dealing with an air suspension.

And you should know this kind of harware being installed on Ferraris and Lamborghinis had already tuned into a subculture, one that appears to be going strong over in Japan.

For instance, here's an example we discussed in July, albeit with most, if not all, of these tuning adventures involving retired models, such as the Ferrari F355 and the Lamborghini Diablo described by the said tale - yes, some people are willing to sacrifice the at-the-limit handling of their mid-engined supercars for the overly dramatic static look brought by those air cushions.
