Heres the first look at the new Ferrari F8 Tributo, however, is it fair to say its just a revamped version of the GTB? Well, here's the spec of the New F8 Tributo.

sitting under the rear window is the same 3.9-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine found in the 488 GTB.

However, Ferrari has added the Nandos hot sauce to the medium flavoured chicken and tuned the motor to produce 710bhp, a substantial 50bhp over the 660bhp produced by the 488 GTB and 568 pound-feet of torque. This makes the F8 Tributo the highest output of any Ferrari V8, and all of this is sent to the rear wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.

This launch the F8 Tributo from 0-62mph in 2.9 seconds and reaching a maximum speed of 211mph (should 210mph not be enough for you). Performance claims also include a 0-124 mph time of 7.8 seconds (should you want to race someone to exactly 124mph).

Most of the F8 Tribute redesign can be found to the rear with a new twin tail-light cluster with a quad LED design. The rear window also has a new three vent design, newly integrated air break spoiler and lower defuser.

Ferrari has completely overhauled the cabin with almost every element of the dash, door panels and center console is new, as is the infotainment system which includes a 7.0-inch touchscreen display for the passenger. The air vent design is also new and the steering wheel has been made smaller. Some fun gadgets can also be found for the everyday driver and the track-focused enthusiast, including track timers, apple air play, wireless phone charging.
