For the year 2023, Ferrari produced exactly one F8 Tributo.

The F8 Spider with a retractable roof is still manufactured.

A representative for Ferrari told C/D that the lone 2023 F8 coupe was manufactured for Ferrari North America, the division of the company responsible for the American market.

Perhaps this request was made ahead of time. Maybe it was just a stroke of luck. Whoever gets their hands on a 2023 Ferrari F8 Tributo will get the only example of this mid-engine Italian sports car ever made. A Ferrari representative told Car and Driver that the company only let one F8 Tributo from the 2023 model year to leave Maranello before they stopped making the 710-hp coupe.


The word “coupe” is emphasised because Ferrari still makes the convertible F8 Spider. That is to say, the F8 isn’t out of the woods just yet, even if the hardtop body style is. The Ferrari representative we spoke to confirmed that the lone 2023 F8 Tributo the business manufactured was destined for the North American market, which includes the United States, Canada, and South America.

If the buyer of this Ferrari did not specify any upgrades that would set their 2023 F8 Tributo apart from the standard 2020, 2021, and 2022 models, then it is likely that there is nothing else that sets this Ferrari apart from the rest. The 2023 F8 is powered by the same mid-mounted twin-turbocharged 3.9-liter V-8 and seven-speed automatic as previous years’ models. This potent mixture is said to propel the F8 Tributo from zero to sixty miles per hour in just 2.7 seconds and on to a maximum speed of 211 miles per hour.

Yet, there’s a certain cachet to having a one-of-a-kind vehicle in the realm of six-figure automobiles, even if the only thing that sets it apart is a simple stamping on the VIN plate. The fact that the F8 Tributo is Ferrari’s entry-level mid-engine coupe and the end of the V-8 era for the brand is icing on the cake.

Since Ferrari stopped making the F8 Tributo, the gasoline-electric V-6 296GTB has become the brand’s least expensive mid-engine coupe (although “affordable” is a relative term, since the 296GTB’s base price is north of $300,000, which is more than $150,000 less than the 986-horsepower SF90 Stradale hybrid’s base price). The 296GTB delivers the power and excitement expected from a Ferrari, with 819 horsepower and a redline of 8500 rpm.

Yet, the F8 Tributo’s eight gas-powered cylinders have a purity of sound and ease of operation that the 296GTB’s six hybrid cylinders can’t match. The 296 is not worse for this, but it is distinct from the F8 it replaces.

One thing is to be the sole owner of a 2023 F8 Tributo. It’s one thing to own a mid-engine Ferrari, but it’s quite another to own the last of its kind to use a V-8 engine only for propulsion instead of an electric drive motor.
