SF90 Stradale Engine
Featuring a 0-60 mph time of only 2.5 seconds and a top speed of 211 mph, the Ferrari SF90 Stradale performance defines its character as much as its forward-looking design. Join Ferrari Lake Forest as we explore the engineering and specs that elevate the Ferrari SF90 above the rest of the auto world.

SF90 Engine: Not Your Neighbor’s Hybrid

For many Chicago drivers, the thought of a hybrid engine conjures images of small, efficient sedans and hatchbacks filling up the Dan Ryan every weekday at 9 and 5. Performance enthusiasts know better. The SF90’s hybrid powertrain features:

  • 7.9 kWh lithium-ion battery
  • Two electric motors on the front axle
  • A third electric motor between the engine and the gearbox
  • A 4.0L twin-turbo V8 under the hood
  • 8-Speed DCT
  • 986 hp in total, with 590 lb-ft of torque

The hybrid design isn’t simply to boost the specs of an already impressive Ferrari engine; those electric motors ensure the driver has access to torque at 0 RPM for instant acceleration from a dead stop.

Updates Since HY-KERS

While the LaFerrari and its unique HY-KERS system broke ground as the first hybrid produced by Ferrari, technology has evolved since its debut.

  • The LaFerrari paired a V12 to a single electric motor, with a total power output of 949 hp
  • The SF90 Stradale pairs a twin turbo V8 with a trio of electric motors, maxing out at 986 hp

The specs might seem similar, but the SF90 points to a much more powerful future: its V8 and three electric motors combine to offer more power than the LaFerrari’s V12 system.

SF90 Performance: Aerodynamics

The remarkable Ferrari SF90 Stradale performance specs are not solely a product of the powertrain; the vehicle’s stunning design is engineered for aerodynamics.

  • The unique chassis design channels air toward vortex generators designed to balance downforce.
  • Each SF90 features wheels engineered to function like rotor blades to manage airflow from the wheel arches.
  • Active aerodynamics like the SF90’s shut-off gurney help minimize drag at high speeds, regulating airflow over the vehicle.
