I have read with interest the reaction to the launch of Ferrari’s 488 GTB replacement, the F8 Tributo. And alongside the entirely understandable drooling over its looks and specification I detect a small but consistent thread of surprise. Because it seems the F8 is not an all-new car, but a heavily revised 488 GTB. But was the 488 itself not a heavily revised 458? It was.
