Ferrari SF90 Stradale plug-in hybrid revealed
- The stunning new Ferrari SF90 Stradale is now official, and it’s the first mainstream hybrid Ferrari to be sold. The LaFerrari, which debuted hybrid tech for the Italian supercar maker, was a limited-run model.
- The SF90 uses Ferrari’s award-winning 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 motor that 769 bhp of power. Assisting the petrol engine are 3 lithium-ion electric motors – one at the rear axle and two located up front – bringing the total output of the supercar to 986 bhp and 800 Nm. Power transmission is taken care of by an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
- This makes it the most powerful Ferrari ever, beating even the V12-powered LaFerrari! So, the SF90 can dismiss the 0-100km/h sprint in just 2.5 seconds.
- The 7.6 kW battery pack ensures that the SF90 Stradale has an electric-only range of around 25 km. Furthermore, it can also achieve a claimed speed of 135 km/h on electric power alone. Being a PHEV, the battery pack can be charged via an external charging point.
- The supercar’s chassis is 20 per cent stiffer and 40 per cent more torsionally rigid than Ferrari’s older performance platforms. The overall design is highly aerodynamic as well – the SF90 generates 390 kg of downforce at 250 km/h.
