    Default Ferrari F8 Tributo Takes the Mid-Engined Sports Car Back to Its Roots

    In case you haven't been watching the auto news, Ferrari's latest brings back a lot of 308 & F40 nostalgia. I really like it's looks.

    Note the 4 tail lights have returned!! No more bug eye back end!

    I agree, great looking car!! Not a huge departure from the 488 except the rear end treatment. I totally agree that 4 tail lights looks better.

    Cool looking car. I always liked the round taillights on any car and the 308 truly has a classic look. Its nice that Ferrari is going back to that look as well as a bit of an upturn at the end of the rear similar to the 308.

    I see a trend - take the 'special-edition', track-only drivetrain, and slap it into the next-gen Production model. Wash, rinse, repeat.

    Looks like they took a 488 and put a "tuner" body kit on it. The ass end looks like an 812 SF; way over styled in my opinion.
