Sporting a darker shade of red, this Rosso Scuderia Ferrari F8 Tributo features a set of custom-made HRE 527 FMR Classic Series forged wheels, making this a truly beautiful Italian machine
It seems that Ferrari F8 Tributo builds are slowly coming to life in recent weeks. After the beautiful Rosso Corsa Ferrari F8 Tributo on ADV.1 Wheels, we’ve shown you earlier this week, now we have an equally beautiful Rosso Scuderia F8 Tributo to show you, this time with HRE Wheels. In a nutshell, the F8 Tributo is the direct successor to the Ferrari 488 GTB, one of the most beautiful modern supercars to date. And its successor doesn’t disappoint either.
In the power department, the F8 Tributo uses the same engine found in the Ferrari 488 Pista, a track-oriented beast of a car. It’s powered by a 3.9 liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine, delivering 710 horsepower and 768 Nm (568lb-ft) of torque, making it the most powerful conventional V8-powered Ferrari engine produced. In order to achieve this, the vehicle uses specific intake plenums and manifolds with optimized fluid dynamics to improve the combustion efficiency of the engine, thanks to the reduction of the temperature of the air in the cylinder, which also helps boost its power output.
Furthermore, several additional lightning efforts, custom Inconel manifolds, and other items improve the overall performance, making this a true technological marvel of an engine. To make things even more interesting, according to Ferrari, the Tributo’s downforce has been increased by 15 percent as compared to the 488 GTB, making it a potent weapon both on the street and the track.
Performance-wise, the engine is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission system. In turn, this allows the F8 Tributo to accelerate from 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in just 2.9 seconds. Furthermore, the F8 Tributo will sprint from zero to 124mph (0-200km/h) in 7.6 seconds. The top speed is a whopping 350km/h (211mph).
This particular Rosso Scuderia – a somewhat darker shade of red as compared to Rosso Corsa – features a set of custom-made HRE 527 FMR forged wheels. These wheels belong to the HRE Classic Series, creating contemporary takes on classic wheel designs, found on sports and race cars in the 1970s and 1980s. The HRE Vintage Series is meant to evoke the finest designs of that era and offer styles fitting for not only sports cars and exotic GTs but also performance sedans, SUVs, and Off-Roaders. However, they look most at home when installed on high-performance machines from Italian carmakers, Ferrari and Lamborghini.
The wheels for this build are sized 20×9.5 in the front and 21×12.5 in the rear. For the finish, the customer went with a Frozen Polished Clear with Polished Clear finish combination. The end result? An amazing-looking Ferrari that will be a thing to marvel at in the forthcoming years, as you can attest to yourself by looking at the media gallery below.
