The SF90 Stradale is Ferrari’s first series-production Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) and represented the beginning of a new chapter in the brand’s history when it was launched. The model is extreme on every level and delivers unprecedented performance compared to any other production car on the market, including its 1,000 cv output and its weight-to-power ratio of 1.57 kg/cv.
Now the Maranello outfit is set to unveil a Spider version of it’s awesome top-of-the-range model, in what will be their second electrified drop top after the LaFerrari Aperta. Expected to have a hard top roof much like the F8 Spider, the SF90 Spider is due to be unveiled later this month on November 12th. Having originally been scheduled for November 5-8, plans had to be changed following the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
The SF90 Spider is likely to be heavier than it’s fixed roof counterpart, the SF90 Stradale’s performance stats: 0-100km/h in 2.5 sec, 0-200km/h in just 6.7 seconds and 211 mph (340 km/h) maximum speed from the Supercar’s turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine, the drop top version is expected to be marginally slower.
The SF90 shares its name with the SF90 Formula One car with SF90 standing for the 90th anniversary of the Scuderia Ferrari racing team and “Stradale” meaning “made for the road” The SF90 Stradale is equipped with three electric motors, adding a combined output of 220 PS (162 kW; 217 bhp) to a twin-turbocharged V8 engine rated at a power output of 780 PS (574 kW; 769 hp) at 7,500 rpm. The car is rated at a total output of 1,000 PS (735 kW; 986 hp) at 8,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 800 N⋅m (590 lb⋅ft) at 6,000 rpm. The V8 engine is an evolution of the unit found in the 488 Pista and the F8 Tributo.
