This is Ferrari’s quickest and most powerful car ever. It also is a plug-in hybrid with the power of a 1000 thoroughbred Italian prancing horses It’s called the SF90 Stradale, and it’s wicked! This is Ferrari’s first plug-in hybrid, and the first time the Italian manufacturer is wading into these waters.
The Ferrari SF90 is a 986-horsepower, all-wheel-drive, plug-in hybrid missile that will teleport from 0 to 62 miles per hour (96.5 kph) in just 2.5 seconds and on paper has a top speed of 211mph. The SF90 can travel up to 25km (16 miles) on electricity alone, thanks to its 7.9-kilowatt-hour, lithium-ion battery pack. The SF90 Stradale pairs a 4.0 litre V8 with three electric motors. The battery sends power to the three electric motors, and even with the ICE switched off the SF90 can still hit 84mph. Ferrari’s control logic manages the power flows depending on the sanity of the driver and splits it across four different driving modes eDrive, Hybrid, Performance, and Qualify. The SF90 is adaptive and can rip around the circuit howling or in complete silence depending on the mode you choose.
Mechanically, the engine bay is deep and low the body and is only partially visible unlike other Ferrari’s that boast their glorious engine from the rear window.
Another first is the steering wheel which has a touchpad and a range of haptic buttons that allow the driver to control everything about the car using just their thumbs. The central instrument unit is now digital with the first automotive application of a 16″ curved HD screen which can be fully configured and controlled using the controls on the steering wheel
The Ferrari SF90 is extreme on every level. It raises the bar not only as the new production Ferrari supercar pushing into hypercar territory, but also for every other supercar maker…And this is just the beginning as this is the Stradale, which means that there would be track-focussed versions, Apertas and Speciales still coming our way.
