2020 Ferrari F8 Tributo Review

2020 Ferrari F8 Tributo


Lithe and voluptuous, the 2020 Ferrari F8 Tributo is the super-car to choose if you like your automotive performance packaged in an undeniably glamorous wrapper—and who doesn't? 

With its chiseled panels and windblown profile, the F8 Tributo looks more beautiful than brash, which sets it apart from other cars in Ferrari's stable. This coupe is new to the Ferrari lineup for the 2020 model year, stepping in to replace the outgoing 488GTB. 

Memorably quick off the line, the F8 Tributo is motivated by the same burly 710-hp V-8 that lives under the hood of the 488 Pista. 

This alluring coupe costs more than an Ivy League education, but its price is justified by its winning style and breathtaking performance.

What's New for 2020?

The F8 Tributo makes its debut for the 2020 model year.

Pricing and Which One to Buy

  •  Coupe: $279,450

    The 2020 Ferrari F8 Tributo comes in a single trim that's loaded with enough amenities to make it a desirable choice for shoppers in this segment. Silver-accented 20-inch wheels connect this car to the pavement. 

    A black grille, sill extensions, and a rear wing spoiler help give this Ferrari an appropriately sporty appearance, and automatic projector-beam LED headlights are on hand to brighten the road ahead. 

    All models come with exterior features such as rain-sensing windshield wipers, rear fog lamps, heated power-folding side-view mirrors, and LED taillights.

    Slide inside the cabin and you'll find a manually adjustable tilt-and-telescoping steering column, keyless entry and ignition, and dual-zone automatic climate control. 

    All F8 Tributo coupes are equipped with tech features such as an integrated navigation system and two LCD monitors. As is often the case with Ferrari vehicles, the F8 Tributo offers optional amenities that allow you to create a customized look. 

    This coupe is available with an extensive selection of upholstery choices. Also, upgrades such as titanium exhaust pipes and exterior carbon-fiber components are offered, and you can choose from brake calipers in a host of different colors.

    Engine, Transmission, and Performance

    The F8 Tributo is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.9-liter V-8 that produces 710 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque. All models are rear-wheel drive, and a seven-speed automatic transmission changes the gears. 

    This Ferrari is quick enough to make an indelible impression. I estimate that it's capable of sprinting from a standstill to 60 mph in about 2.8 seconds. 

    Handling is precise and rewarding. The F8 Tributo's engine hits a pleasantly sonorous note as it does its work, and the brakes do a masterful job of bringing this coupe to a swift halt.

    Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

    Fuel economy for the 2020 Ferrari F8 Tributo stands at 15/19 mpg city/highway, according to EPA estimates. 

    That's better mileage than you'll get with rivals such as the Lamborghini Hurac├ín (up to 13/18 mpg).

    Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

    The F8 Tributo provides seating for two passengers within a cabin that's roomy enough to provide pleasant, comfortable accommodations.

    Contrasting stitching and sporty design cues help give the interior a performance-themed aesthetic that matches that of the car's sheet-metal. The cabin's most notable shortcoming concerns rearward visibility.

    The view out the back is impeded by the rear window's louvers. Many exotics are very low on cargo space, and the F8 Tributo is no exception. Cargo capacity stands at seven cubic feet.

    Infotainment and Connectivity

    All F8 Tributo coupes come with a six-speaker audio system as well as Bluetooth phone and streaming audio. 

    The list of standard tech features also includes a pair of LCD monitors and an integrated navigation system with a voice-activation feature. 

    The list of options includes a 7.0-inch touchscreen. Apple CarPlay integration is offered, but Android Auto isn't available.

    Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

    The 2020 Ferrari F8 Tributo hasn't received an overall crash-test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). 

    Super-cars often come up short in the area of driver-assistance technology, and this is the case with the F8 Tributo. Amenities such as a blind-spot warning system aren't offered. Key safety features include:

      Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

      When it comes to its limited and power-train warranties, Ferrari's coverage matches the protection provided by Lamborghini. 

      However, Ferrari surpasses this rival by providing seven years of complimentary scheduled maintenance. Lamborghini vehicles do not offer complimentary scheduled maintenance.

      •  Limited warranty covers 3 years or unlimited miles
      •  Power-train warranty covers 3 years or unlimited miles
      •  Complimentary scheduled maintenance covers 7 years or unlimited miles
