    I've just spent the morning driving "14893", the dark grey F8 pictured above. All of these cars were in Zürich for the first official presentation. Fantastic car, amazing engine, it inspires confidence immediately and you soon forget about the 720 horsepower. It felt like I had been driving this car for years, it really fits like a glove. I have no doubt that it will be a great track weapon as well as a usable daily driver.

    But would I sell my 458 for it? Probably not. Climbing back in my 458 after driving the F8 made me realize that nothing will ever replace that naturally aspirated V8. Maybe if I can afford to keep both I'll get one, but not if I have to sell the 458. The F8 is a great car, a McLaren and Porsche killer, and that's what it's supposed to be. It fulfills its mission in year 2020 to perfection. But it cannot be a replacement for a 458. Nothing can be, really.

    "L4 14893" is a temporary Italian registration. The S/N is 253742.
    The group of factory F8 Tributos (Tributi) did a road show at the various official Swiss dealers in Basel, Zürich, Lausanne, etc.

    I saw and heard a red one a week ago heading uphill on La Jolla Village dr. Sounded as good as a Scud.

    Wow! That black spec looks amazing! It's not because the details are hidden, it's simply because she looks spectacular in black!

    Will the Pista race wheels fit on a Tributo?

    The 488, F8 and Pista wheels are all identical sizes and offsets.

    My dealer told me that the Racing seats are not desirable for after sale, I should go for the comfort seats..
    What you guys think?
    I mean most of the photos I’ve seen in this forum are racing seats.
