    Hi All, does anyone have a confirmed date on UK deliveries for the F8 Tributo? I can see a few guys have dates but none of them are in the UK. I have asked my dealer but they don't see to be that clued up on it. I'm ideally after info on first deliveries and when others actually have confirmed deliveries for. Cheers, Pete

    RHD dealer demos are specced & due December I believe - customer car dates are less solid but there's a hint whatever your order says it may be sooner

    Thanks very much for the info, I was told by the deal demo will not arrive until summer 2020 so something is clearly a miss with the dates they are providing

    Well, I’m going to go and drive one in the next week or so, GB demo/press car from maranello in Egham, but no idea on deliveries. I thought it was late this year/early in the new year though for the first to the favourite customers!

    Hmm, I was just told first UK deliveries are April next year, I'll have to ask tomorrow about a demo car as I have not been told there is one available yet

    So that is probably not a dealer demo but the silver/grey LHD pre-production car currently with HROwen

    Please let us know feedback, I put an order in on Tuesday for this but I'm reluctant to hand over cash until they at least confirm when my coupe is to be delivered, they have been dreadfully slow to confirm the delivery so I'll have to chase them early next week when I have more time

    Did you read the write up in Evo this month? It was so positive, they gave away copies at Silverstone a few weeks back. I wouldn’t be too worried, it does look and sound amazing, but I’ll let you know, asuming I get there. I’m still up at 3am with my legs and back playing silly buggers - this bloody cancer isn’t as much fun as I’d like it to be sometimes, if my leg doesn’t come back to life I doubt I’ll risk driving, although the main issue is my braking leg, so as long as I have a foot to slam on the gas, maybe I don’t need the left one!

    Well, I managed to get a couple hours passed out eventually, and now I’m back up, it’s subsided a bit, so fingers crossed. My left leg keeps letting me down, which isn’t ideal so I’ll have to monitor that, but I really love these events so I am desperate to go

    Sorry chaps, I couldn’t risk it. 90 minute drive just to get there, and then risking someone else’s car while I’m driving it, I just couldn’t take the chance. They promised to get the car back for me soon, which is very very good of them. Apologies for letting you down, I was really looking forward to it, but I don’t think they’d want me in there racing along the dual carriageway and my braking leg suddenly go numb! Too dangerous. It’s the F8 spider, just to confirm the car I was going to drive today

    It's a real shame you couldn't drive and check out the car but, you have to feel comfortable and make sure health is ok as a priority. No worries,this end, order is in anyway so will just got with the flow, hope you fell better soon and can get to test drive thr car and have fun

    Well I had a test drive for you! You’ll have to insert appropriate brrrm brrrm noises!!!! LOL

    front is good looking, but I’m not sure about the back end! There is a bit of mclaren going on there. Doesn’t come across in press pictures, but where the hood goes down to make an effective air foil.

    Car is obviously highly specced with lots of vanity carbon fibre, like trunk and engine surrounds. They aren’t structural as far as I can see and the standard plastic is probably just as light. Might as well wrap those bits and save yourself the cost of a small house!!

    engine bay was a massive disappointment. All hidden, so cover is not transparent like on the 360/430. On opening the engine bay you can see very little other than vanity carbon and the end of some fairing piece in red wrinkle paint. I didn’t get the opportunity to see if this was metal or plastic.

    Cabin is neat and tidy. I didn’t like the seats as I’m 6.1 and you would need to be one of those gay Italian models to fit in comfortably! That said, spec the right seats for you and I’m sure it would be a lovely place to be.

    Trunk is a bit smaller than you might think, so some fitter luggage might be needed if your not a soft bag cram it all in type person!!

    overall a good looking car. You would have to see what it sounded like though, the presenter didnt give it the beans, just let it idle and it sounded ok.

    mad somebody said, silver is for BMW’s and Mercedes! I tend to agree and think a triple layer red or yellow or nice blue would show the cars shape of better. Also not convinced on this apparent trend for brown leather interiors, although this one didn’t feel over the top.

    let us know what you think when you get a chance to drive it!!!

    always, most of what I do these days is done to obtain or at least flirt with hot blondes ....... life is short, enjoy every moment, and you won’t enjoy moments more than those spent with fast Ferraris or faster women

    So got my date set as the 1st of December 2020, I have been told F8 production has not even started yet as they are still producing Pistas so maybe it will be after the 1st fo Dec

    Hi Guys, does anyone have a UK delivered car yet, the dealer is telling me no customer cars have been delivered yet but, I have heard from a well know detailer they have already worked on cars so trying to get to the bottom of this. Hopefully someone will be able to confirm either way. Cheers, Pete

    As far as I am aware only dealer demo cars arrived before lockdown - the quick way to tell if any customer cars have arrived is to see if Hartley Romans etc are showing any physical rhd for sale - for every new model there are also usually some private import lhd before rhd arrive

    A friend with a car due May/June has yet to get any meaningful update
