There’s a new Italian supercar in town, and this latest one comes courtesy of the Prancing Horse. Motostrada, the official exclusive distributor of Ferrari cars in the Philippines, has just officially launched the Ferrari F8 Tributo.
The Tributo is the most powerful V8 supercar that the Maranello-based carmaker has ever built, and it’s looking to prove itself as the worthy successor to the 488 GTB. On top of the stylish, sporty physique, the Tributo boasts refined aerodynamics that improves overall performance. Specifically, its structure has been redesigned to specifically cut drag and increase downforce.
Inside, the Tributo offers a driver-oriented cockpit clad in premium soft-touch materials. Highlighting the cabin is the new steering wheel smothered in several controls. This is complemented by a plethora of black leather and some carbon fiber trims that have been distributed around the interior.
Improving the Tributo’s performance even further is the 3.9-liter turbocharged V8 that powers this mid-engine supercar. The powertrain is mated to an F1 seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and generates a whopping 710hp and 770Nm, allowing the car to do 0-100kph in just 2.9sec. Meanwhile, speed tops out at 340kph.
“From outstanding performance, speed, and excellence, the racing legacy of Ferrari has brought a unique and exclusive experience to car enthusiasts in our country. Today, we at Motostrada have unveiled the illustrious Italian company’s latest and fastest sports car to-date—the Ferrari F8 Tributo,” said Motostrada chairman emeritus Wellington Soong.
“As the official and exclusive dealer of Ferrari in the Philippines, we fully embrace the values that Ferrari upholds. Expect that our integrity and quality of service are particularly met with the standards set by Ferrari,” said Motostrada president Mody Llamas Jr. “The iconic release of the Ferrari F8 Tributo here in our country perfectly mirrors Motostrada’s direction: to be the leader in automotive innovation, unafraid of fusing the historic past and the revolutionary future for the ever-growing and exclusive Ferrari community.”
As for pricing, it greatly varies when it comes to Ferraris. That said, you can expect nothing less than P30 million for this thing. What do you think of it? You can check out the full video of the digital launch event as well as more photos of the new supercar below.
