This Rosso Corsa Novitec Ferrari F8 Tributo comes from Wheels Boutique, and it features a Novitec carbon fiber body kit, an IPE exhaust system, an M Engineering tune, and finally, a set of lightweight custom-forged HRE wheels
Let’s be honest, there are not a lot better things than a gorgeous Rosso Corsa Ferrari to start the week. And this is especially true for the Ferrari F8 Tributo, the perfect successor to the beautiful Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, a V8-powered supercar with a gorgeous look and impressive performance factor.
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).
How to make an already beautiful car even more gorgeous: Novitec body kit and HRE Wheels
This Rosso Corsa Ferrari F8 Tributto comes from Wheels Boutique, a well-known Miami, Florida-based tuning powerhouse. If you own a supercar and want to get it modded by the utmost professional and experienced group of people, they are the ones to do it. For this F8 Tributo owner, the team added a set of subtle, albeit impactful touches. Namely, the vehicle is graced with a carbon fiber aftermarket body kit from Novitec, an IPE Exhaust system, and finally, a set of HRE Wheels.
The body kit is definitely clean and follows the lines of this Italian beauty perfectly. It adds just the perfect dose of a custom touch, ensuring this F8 Tributo will stand out right next to others of its kind. It consists of a front lip spoiler, side flaps, side panels, rear spoiler, rear wing, air guide side wall, door handles, side mirrors, and a bunch more carbon fiber trim touches. In all, a complete package that adds that sophisticated touch to this vehicle.
After the body kit was fitted, the Wheels Boutique team proceeded with the additional upgrades for this vehicle. The IPE Valvetronic Exhaust & High Flow Cats ensures that the throatier sound can be heard from the V8 engine, ensuring everyone on the block knows you’re coming. This is augmented with an M Engineering Tune, giving the F8 Tributo a bit more power and torque, making the performance aspect even more profound. However, the most impactful touch (as with other builds), to us, is the addition of a set of custom-made lightweight concave forged wheels from HRE.
For this Ferrari build, the owner went with a set of HRE P107SC wheels, a forged split-five spoke goodness that fits this Italian supercar perfectly. With the clean look of these wheels and the rather transparent design of the spokes, the beautiful yellow calipers of the large carbon ceramic brakes fitted to this Ferrari come into full view, ensuring that everyone is well aware of the performance this vehicle can produce.
The wheels are sized 20×9 in the front and 21×13 in the rear and adorned with a Satin Black finish. The latter is the perfect partner to the black carbon fiber parts of the Novitec body kit, adding that perfect accentuating touch. Furthermore, the owner of this car went with a set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, ensuring plenty of grip and handling prowess can be achieved with them. The tires are sized 245/35/20 in the front and a staggering 355/25/21 in the rear.
In all, a perfect-looking project. You can grab a detailed look at the finished build in the media gallery right below.
