This is the Ferrari SF 90 Stradale the most powerful Road car Ferrari has ever produced. And it’s also the firm’s first plug-in hybrid. So here are the top ten things you need to know about it:
With its huge front wing massive air scoops and active gurney rear spoiler, the Ferrari SF 90 looks like a 488. That Ferraris aerodynamic boffins have thrown the kitchen sink at fittingly its name celebrates 290 years of the Ferrari Scuderia f1 team. But which hypercar takes your pole position.
The SF 90 is rumored to cost around half a million pounds that would make it significantly less than a McLaren Senna. But if you’re a normal person after a more normal car click on the pop-eyed banner in the top right-hand corner. The screen to get a car way where you can save an average of $3,000 without having to haggle.
This new Ferraris twin-turbocharged 4 liter v8 is a modified version of the four eight eight. It’s boosted by three electric motors to produce a combined 1,000 horsepower more than any other road-going Ferrari. Today it gets from naught to sixty-two miles an hour in just 2.5 seconds that’s three tenths quicker than a McLaren Senna does it. And it tops out at an adequate 212 miles an hour.
If you want your sf9 t to be a little bit more hardcore you want the Isetta fear Renault pack. That shaves 30 kilograms from the weight of the car gets you semi-slick tires and as a carbon-fiber rear spoiler which produces up to 390 kilos of downforce.
The SF 90 can travel 50 miles in electric-only mode. And it’s actually front-wheel drive in this setting the new 8-speed gearbox apparently also makes the car 1% more efficient on track which is obviously a key concern in your half a million pound Super Girl.
Sadly all this clever hybrid tech does come with a penalty weight weighing in at one thousand five hundred and seventy kilos dry. The SF 90 is about 300 kilos heavier than the la Ferrari and nearly 400 kilos heavier than a McLaren Senna so its no lightweight.
In order to make the new SF 90 handle as well as possible Ferrari has made the body super rigid a combination of hollow castings and a carbon-fiber bulkhead make the car up to 40 percent stiffer than a 488 P stock.
As well as being a plug-in hybrid the SF 90 is actually four-wheel drive. A pair of electric motors shovel power between the front wheels. While the rear tires get powered directly from the v8 petrol engine which is boosted by yet another electric motor.
The SF 90s engine and chassis are handled by more algorithms than the Google search engine. But the whole lot is controlled by the e manettino knob on the steering wheel. It has four modes II drive hybrid performance and a no-holds-barred qualify setting.
Even the SF nineties interior takes huge strides for Ferrari. It gets a 16-inch infotainment screen that makes Success displays look puny. And you also get touch control pads and a central automatic gear shift up modeled on the gauge. You got in the old manual Ferraris.
