Ferrari SF90 Stradale

When tradition meets the future, you get the SF90 Stradale. What does this hybrid supercar offer drivers?

The Ferrari SF90 Stradale is the Prancing Horse’s first series production PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) and thus represents a new chapter in the marque’s history. The model is extreme on every level and delivers unprecedented performance (1,000 cv, weight-to-power ratio of 1.57 kg/cv) compared to any other production car on the market.


The car’s name, SF90 Stradale, references Scuderia Ferrari’s 90th anniversary, underscoring the strong link between Ferrari’s track and road cars. This heritage translates into unmatched power. Boasting the highest output of any 8-cylinder Ferrari engine (769hp 4L twin-turbocharged V8) combined with three electric motors, the SF90 Stradale delivers a staggering 986hp. This translates into exhilarating acceleration (0-62mph in 2.5 seconds) and a top speed of 211mph.


The first Ferrari sports car to be equipped with 4-wheel-drive, the SF90 Stradale’s all-new chassis combines aluminium and carbon fibre to improve structural rigidity and provide a suitable platform for the car’s hybrid system. A new electronic Side Slip Control vehicle control system manages optimal use of torque, brake energy and electric traction, guaranteeing that drivers of all kinds can be full-use of the SF90’s potential.


The car’s design is the result of a close collaboration between the Ferrari Styling Centre and Ferrari engineers; every piece has a purpose. Rear downforce is balanced at the front of the car by a complex and optimised system of vortex generators, whilst the front bumper is divided into two sections with specific wing functions. This feature, together with the two diffusers ahead of the front wheels, contributes to generating downforce over the front axle. Specially forged wheels work like rotor blades, efficiently managing the air flows from inside the wheel arches. The engine cover has been kept extremely low to minimise drag and the end section features a suspended wing which incorporates a shut-off Gurney, a patented active system located at the rear of the car which regulates the air flow over the upper body.


Ferrari Design has created a radical evolution of the forms of Ferrari’s mid-rear-engine production Berlinettas, creating a profile that is forward-thinking and innovative, transmitting the car’s mission as an extreme sports car: a seamless amalgamation of form, technology and performance.

The cab-forward design utilises the new aerodynamic parts of the car more effectively, incorporating radiators or the cooling requirements of the hybrid system. The lower powertrain allows a lower tail than Ferraris of the past, a tail that is dominated by high exhaust pipes, due to optimisation in the exhaust line layout.

The rear-end of the car also carries over many iconic Ferrari Styling elements whilst the rear side-profile harkens back to the 1960s 330 P3 and P4. T

The interior is even more radical. Ferrari Design’s explicit aim was to create a new design direction for Ferrari, the effects of which will carry over into the whole Ferrari range. This results in a wraparound aeronautically inspired cockpit with a strong emphasis on the instruments, underscoring the symbiotic relationship between car and driver. This is epitomised by the new Heads Up Display, an innovative addition to the Human Machine Interface.
