Well, I went to my Ferrari dealer who is about 1 1/2hrs away in my 2015 458 Italia which I have owned for a little more than three years. Love this car as it does all the things I need, visceral sound in and out, looks etc. My dealer arranged for a test drive on the new F8 Tributo which is actually just the way I would spec the car. All options I would order including the passenger display. First off, this test drive was a long one. About 1 hour plus of me driving the car on the city streets and highway. Then, at one point I pulled off in an industrial area and asked my salesman to hop into the drivers seat and do an abundance of stops and goes, hard acceleration and drivebys, as well as slowing down on the gear changes to a stop towards me, all the while with my camera video taping. This car is explosive, incredible rush of power, very well planted to the ground in race mode. I went from a stop hard and its mind blowing the acceleration of this car compared to my 458. I was amazed on how the traction is superb. On the highway, third and fourth gear hard pulls was eye popping. Then, I could not believe how easy it is to daily drive the F8, very luxurious as far as ride goes. Driving the 458 is like an event all the time. The looks department, the car is gorgeous from the rear, the front has not grown on me yet. The interior has some nice upgrades and changes as well. The sound inside the car, well, it is pretty good. Though, I am not used the spool up of the turbos, and not sure I like that,. it is in no way any comparison to the 458. So, I am wanting to think that I could get used to it. On the outside, when I was driving down the very populated lunch time crowd, barely anyone notice the car approaching, only if I ended up directly beside them did the car red Ferrari get noticed. I am used to crowds turning their heads a block away as I approach in the 458 which is stock, only with a Capristo Valve controller. I feel that a high end exotic should put on an attitude when approaching your destinations. This F8 does not. I am really wanting to love the new F8, which is leaps ahead in the technology department and power than my 458. I want to order the car and be done with it. But, I am petrified that I will simply not get used to it and I will be continually convincing myself that I did the right thing and buy the F8 to replace the 458. Yes, it is faster, more refined, but for some reason, this does not matter right now. I do not see the delta in price to pay to buy this car that will NOT make me happy and only be buying it to be the new kid on the block so to speak. I feel like Ferrari is supposed to be a car that sparks emotions and adrenaline in ways no other car can replicate. The F8, is to me, very Maclaren, Aston etc. Just no tickling of the senses that I need. I am in no way bashing the car, and for those of you that ordered and received the new F8, I admire you as you are capable of forgetting the 458 and be happy with the F8. I guess, I am trying to convince myself through all of you, but so far, nothing. Not even the long test drive could convince me. First world problems I guess. I left the dealer in the 458 and immediately, all the things that really matter to me in what a Ferrari should do, were oh so evident. Damn it, I guess I will wait for now.
