The Hidden Homages in the Ferrari F8 Tributo

The 488 GTB’s successor is finally here: it’s a bit of a stunner and it’s called the Ferrari F8 Tributo. Well, I say “finally”, but really it seems like just yesterday we were all gawping at the press photos of the 488.

Monday Money: The Maserati 4200 GT

These days, if you were to walk into a showroom looking for a new car, £15,000 is only enough to buy you a small supermini.
