    Finally saw one of these parked on the street the other day and it was incredibly underwhelming. I almost didn't even realize it was an F8. It's pretty much just a 488 facelift. Can't imagine why someone would want to upgrade from a 488 to an F8.

    I had a 488. Loved it. But, the F8 is a major upgrade. Looks wise, though subjective, it’s the best version of the 458/488/F8 design by far, in my opinion.

    My salesman told me last Saturday 14 months wait list for F8, assuming they continue to get their expected allocations.

    It is a very beautiful car!
    I would take one over a Pista, but that is just me.

    He did not realize it was an F8. Not being capable to distinguish an F8 from a 488 does not say much for his visual cognition abilities.

    Nah it's because when you glance at it from the side it looks almost identical. Barely any difference in profile.

    a very nice set of pictures you found for that particular F8! Maybe a color like grigio abu dhabi would work especially well with that design.
    Or maybe you want a bright red because they surely won't hear you coming... ;)

    If you are a 488 GTB owner you can see the differences by a mile. I justify your comment to me with regards to Porsches , hell i have no idea of the difference.

    My understanding of noone1 is that he is more of an electric car guy and, on ICE vehicles holds favor toward Maclaren, so it may be tough on him to see past the basic shape of a car particularly a Ferrari which he is highly critical of most the time anyway. That said, he is capable of raising valid points on the odd occasion.

    With regard to his comment that the F8 was visually underwhelming and hard to tell between a 488, that can also have a lot to do with the color of the car and how its been optioned on the exterior. For example when I saw a light blue F8 I was also underwhelmed and thought meh, but then when I saw it in Rosso Scuderia I was quite wowed with the look of it! Looked great! Being the type of car that it is, it's a car where the color can make or break a persons initial reaction to it. So I totally get where noone1 is coming from on that point.

    Agree. Color is so subjective though it makes all the difference. Having seen a lighter color version of F8, my opinion goes with a more bold color for this midengine V8.

    Hehe... well, that is quite something. For myself, I’m not that angry about my money and usually buy second hand. My dealer told me base new is 270 so I figure 300k is already good. 370 is probable with gold stitches and marble inlays. Anyway, glad I asked and everyone to it’s own.

    I don’t think he ever liked the 488 so most likely just wanted to pop the sly boot in on F8 for good measure.

    What options for the F8 give it the large roof fin vs the small fin?

    Having our F8 Demo here I can definitely tell you that it is louder in every RPM range and the engine as well than the 488.
    That was also what all of my clients said when they heard the F8.
