With a top speed of 211 mph and a 0-60 mph time of just 2.5 seconds, the Ferrari SF90 Stradale points to a thrilling new future — a perfect way to celebrate the brand’s 90th birthday. The SF90 is the first Ferrari sports car to be equipped with 4WD and the first plug-in hybrid Ferrari.
The average driver may look toward a hybrid to save a few dollars on their commute; Ferrari’s engineers saw another avenue for acceleration.The Ferrari SF90’s hybrid powertrain is anchored by a 4.0L twin-turbo 90-degree V8 rated at 769 hp, mated to a trio of electric motors (generating 217 hp). Their power combines to a record-breaking 986 hp — or a clean 1,000 cheval vapeur. Two of the electric motors are located on the front axle for while the third is located between the engine and gearbox.
The 7.9 kWh lithium-ion battery delivering the electric side of the hybrid allows for up to 16 miles of electric-only driving, but more importantly, those motors offer peak torque at zero RPM. The result is an energetic leap the second your foot hits the accelerator as the twin-turbo V8 revs to life, rising to the 590 lb-ft of torque at 6,000 RPM
Bridging the gap between driver and 986-hp supercar is a new eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. An upgrade from the seven-speed DCT of the LaFerrari, the SF90 sports a dry-sump gearbox that sits 15 mm below the old seven-speed DCT, lowering the center of gravity.
Not only has Ferrari upgraded the transmission from the LaFerrari, they have taken the idea of “control” in a bold new direction. The streamlined interior is practically all smooth curves, with essential controls — like those that switch from one of the SF90’s four drive modes — located on the steering wheel via capacitive touch “buttons.”
An entirely digital instrument panel with 16-inch curved glass display houses all of the SF90 Stradale’s gauges and navigation, though you will also have a head-up display to keep your focus on the road ahead.
A forward-looking, innovative design will convey the Ferrari SF90 Stradale’s mission to everyone else on the road: to be the extreme sports car, Ferrari’s first series-production supercar.
To live up to that goal, Ferrari Design completely revisited the proportions to develop the SF90, a radical successor to the mid-rear-engine production berlinettas that came before it. It slips directly between the mid-rear-engined coupes, the F8 Tributo and the LaFerrari.
Every design element of the SF90 hinges on its architecture, with the lower, mid-mounted engine allowing for a lower tail dominated by high exhaust pipes.
More than just good looks, active aerodynamic features maximize performance as they make an impression upon everyone else on the road. Rather than a rear spoiler that raises above certain speeds, the SF90 activates its active aero features by dropping a wedge-shaped panel to reveal a Gurney flap spoiler — a fast-acting system that lets you slide into low-drag mode immediately, generating as much as 860 pounds of downforce.
