    That had me curious and go to Uncle Google. Looks like the C8 won't meet the new euro regs without GPF....and it's still at the end of the day a Corvette FWIW. I would take the F8 over the C8, I would take the F8 over 4 C8s lol

    How can you have 40 questions out of 80 related to sound?

    Count me in the camp that sound or how good/loud it sounds is a minor thing to me (and I have a speciale with capristo and had f12 with IPE). There's so much more to these cars then sound. I'm not banging up to the limiter on each shift in a drive (not possible to even do so with traffic, traffic lights, etc.).

    I'd rather have good sound inside the car (entertainment to me) rather then the outside (entertainment to others).

    It pulls a very good 0-60 mph (due to gearing and tyres mostly), but above that speed it's nothing special. At the 0-100 mph dash it is about 1'' slower than the Speciale. I like the C8 very much indeed, but this is not Ferrari performance territory. Not to mention that the GPF is mandatory in Europe.

    Cosworth say that they could avoid the GPF on the Valkyrie by choosing port injection. There is a limit though in ppm emissions though.

    When I picked up my 430 spider from the dealer, my friend and I left with the top down. The on ramp is right next to the dealership onto the highway. It was a cloverleaf that went under the overpass. I will never forget hearing that first sound of my car echoing off the walls. It sent chills down my spine. After a 150 mile ride home, my friend called me the next day. He said he left something in my car. I told him I didn't see anything. He then said "I left my soul". That is what a Ferrari should be all about

    That issue has been settled. Many videos confirm this fact.

    Just received the Ferrari brochures about both Pista and F8 - I plan to study them carefully to try and get some picture of the differences between the two cars ;)
    Just having a very quick look at the technical specs, I noticed that the F8 has a trunk that's 30 liters more than the Pista's (not really surprising, the Pista having a more extreme implementation of the S-duct) ... and that the F8 has worse consumption and emissions figures (that's probably a first, that the newer car does not improve in these respects - I suspect that the infamous GPF did nothing to help the F8).

    Probably because it's been measured on the new, stricter, WLTP cycle.

    The Pista figures are also reported to be according to WLTP.

    You don't seem to understand the purpose of the GPF. It has nothing to do with CO2.

    I would assume it has to do with particles that are bad for the environment?

    Regardless of what the GPF actually does, you must see the irony in the fact that the new car set up to meet new emissions standards actually emits more greenhouse gasses than the old hardcore car that wasn’t? You gotta admit there’s some pretty hysterical irony going on in this situation.

    No, it has to do with the carbon particles that kill our lungs and cause cancer. Nothing to do with the greenhouse effect and CO2. Diesel engines emit even less CO2 (which is just an inert gas, harmless to humans), but much more deadly pollution (NOx and particles). Usually, when an engine gets cleaner, it consumes a bit more (less lean combustion) and thus emits more CO2.

    Holy cow! That was way more technical a response than I was hoping for. Please dumb it down for idiots like me.

    So correct me if I’m wrong, but what you’re saying is that cars without GPF cause cancer and anyone who drives a car without a GPF is constantly spreading cancer to the general public? Maybe I’ll just start walking everywhere. Wouldn’t want to inadvertently cause cancer.

    Condescension is not helping the progress of the dialogue.


    Cars without GPF, especially diesels and DI, emit more carcinogenic particles. That's a fact.

    I’m just messing with you Zeus ;) This conversation made my Friday afternoon more enjoyable, thanks for that.

    Now back to the F8.
