Naza Italia, the official distributor of Ferrari vehicles in Malaysia has just officially launched the Ferrari F8 Tributo, just one month after it made its global debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show in March.
The 488GTB replacement is equipped with Fiorano’s most powerful series production V8 engine packing 720 hp and 770 Nm of torque. The 3.9-litre displacement engine is paired to a 7-speed F1 dual-clutch transmission to drive the rear wheels. Century sprint takes 2.9 seconds with an acclaimed top speed of 340 km/h.

The extra performance is kept in check with a series of aerodynamic improvements such as new front S-Duct – similar to the 488 Pista, smaller LED headlamps to accommodate the new brake cooling intake as well as a completely reworked rear profile with new rear engine cover, brake duct and side intakes.
Overall, the car now boasts 10% improvement in aerodynamic efficiency along with latest Side Slip Angle Control (ver. 6.1) and Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer (FDE+).
Inside, the cabin features a smaller diameter steering wheel with new controls, redesigned dashboard, door panels and tunnel, round air vents as well as a new 7.0-inch passenger touchscreen display.
Malaysia is fortunate enough to be the first country in South East Asia to introduce the Ferrari F8 Tirbuto priced at RM1,068,000 before duties and customisation options.
