The Ultimate And Most Powerful Ferrari To Date: The Ferrari SF90 Stradale

The specs are staggering. 986-horsepower, AWD, 0-100 km/h in 2.5 seconds. And it looks completely fabulous and exotic.

Rumours and spy shots of a hybrid Ferrari have hovered about for a long time and finally, we get to lay eyes on this latest super Ferrari – we are not disappointed in the least. Its turbocharged 4.0-litre V8, three electric motors and 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission make the Ferrari SF90 Stradale plug-in hybrid the most powerful of its kind ever.

It’s next to impossible to not be excited by the new Ferrari SF90 Stradale PHEV. It is everything that is demanded by a modern-day, 21st century supercar.

The boosted V8 supplies 769-horsepower which itself is further boosted by three electric motors. There’s one on the rear axle and the other two are up front, making the new Ferrari SF90 Stradale PHEV an AWD car. The extra power works out to an additional 217-horsepower for a grand total 986 system horsepower.

The two front-mounted electric motors can power the SF90 on pure electricity for just shy of 30 kilometers thanks to a 7.9kWh lithium ion battery pack. All will allow the car to hit about 130 km/h without resorting to petrol. Also, setting the transmission in reverse activates solely the electric motors.

Compared to the Ferrari F8 Tributo, the SF90 Stradale PHEV sits at 99mm longer, 7mm narrower and 20mm lower, or is 710mm long, 1972mm wide and 1186mm tall. The full hybrid system tips the scale at 595 lb. which forced Ferrari to extensively resort to carbon fibre and aluminium to keep weight as low as possible. Total tally is 3,461 lb.

Although it does remind us of the F8 and 812, the new Ferrari SF90 Stradale PHEV holds distinctive front headlights and very cool squared-off quad taillights. Hell, it’s another stunning Ferrari.

On board, the Ferrari SF90 Stradale PHEV sports a 16-inch instrument and display screen (one and the same), a new touch-sensitive interface all within the latest take on the driver-focused cabin.

Thanks to its monstrous power, including 590 lb.-ft. of peak torque, the SF90 will cover the 0-100km/h sprint in 2.5 seconds, 200 km/h in 6.7 seconds on the way to a quoted top speed of 212 mph, or 340 km/h.

No, although the Ferrari SF90 Stradale PHEV is the most powerful Ferrari ever, it does not replace the Ferrari LaFerrari per sey. It will be less expensive than the latter but more so than the F8. Does this mean that Ferrari is preparing a crazier 1,000+++ horsepower version in the near future?
