I would joke about it looking too similar to the outgoing model (and like all the V8 Ferraris for the last decade), but I am a 911 fan. :lol:

I like this, looks good.

Tributo in the sense that it's probably the last Ferrari midship that'll be released that doesn't include KERS or hybrid technology?

Well if they decide to create an even faster track special of the F8, then that will be truly the last Ferrari to not use hybrid assist. Then they can call it F8 Tributo. For the base model they should just call it F8. Or 508 just to follow the traditional engine size-cylinder nomenclature (note: I know the F8 has the same engine capacity as the 488, this was just an example).
 
Meh, I guess Ferrari used up all their design talent on the Monza.
It's just an evolution of the 488, same platform etc. They're bringing out a V8 hybrid that will sit above this in a few months. That's the real successor to the 488 really. Which I'm sure will have a new design language. But then again, maybe not.

traditional engine size-cylinder nomenclature
You mean the nomenclature that didn't start until 20 years into the marque with the 206/246, was abandoned with the F355 and then was briefly revisited with the 458, only to be abandoned yet again? That "traditional" nomenclature?

It wasn't abandoned with the 355. The 5 in the end is referring to the quintuple valve system that were the highlights of the car at the time. I concur, 360 and 430 didn't follow the nomenclature strictly, but at least you still know what size engines they carry (and obviously it will be a V8). Traditional or not, it has been used in 50+ years of the company history with only a few small deviations here and there, and it's a nomenclature that makes most sense and objective (compared to the alphanumeric soup used by Merc/BMW/Audi that keeps changing and oh look Cadillac has just changed its nomenclature again, thanks GTP News for telling me).

Anyway, since neither you or I are in charge of naming cars at Ferrari, F8 Tributo it shall remains.

"They didn't abandon the engine size-cylinder nomenclature, the '5' refers to the number of valves."

:odd:

If the name doesn't denote the engine capacity and cylinder count, it hasn't stuck to that particular system. But that's really not even the point.

Various naming systems have been used, and not one is "traditional" as a result. As such, suggesting a name that sticks to a nonexistent "traditional" system is daft, and not simply because they likely couldn't care less.

Can't quite get over the rear with the way they designed the 4-taillamps, but Ferrari's Spiders have been the much better looking cars since the 458, imo.

I agree, the car look ok until you get to the rear which isn't that nice and looks like it should belong to a completely different car IMO.
