Ferrari chose the Geneva Motor Show for the unveiling of the F8 Tributo, its new two-seater mid-engined Berlinetta fitted with its most powerful V8 to date. The public will get to see it from March 7-17 2019. 

Ferrari is replacing its 488 GTB with the F8 Tributo, adding power and making it 40kg lighter. Generating 530kW, the twin-turbo V8 engine is the most powerful in the carmaker's history, excluding non-special series Ferraris.

Featured in the Ferrari 488 Pista and the 488 Pista Spider, this engine accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in just 2.9 seconds and can achieve a top speed of 340km/h.

The F8 Tributo also has a redesigned steering wheel and new mounted controls. The model's price and availability have yet to be announced.
