Latest car news, Ferrari announces its first PHEV production supercar, the Ferrari SF90 Stradale. The new Ferrari SF90 model is thrilling on every level and symbolizes a new era of Supercars. It delivers extraordinary performance with exceptional weight-to-power ratio and significant downforce which puts this supercar at the top of its segment!
The car’s name reinforces the true importance of the strong link that has always existed between Ferrari’s track and road cars. The Ferrari SF90 Stradale demonstrates the brilliance of Ferrari’s skills and knowledge in its production supercars.
The Ferrari SF90 Stradale has a V8 turbo engine capable of producing 780 hp; the highest power output of any 8-cylinder in Ferrari history. The extra 220 hp is delivered through one electric motor at the rear which is a derivative from the Formula 1 application, and 2 electric motors located on the front axle. This sophisticated hybrid car system manages the flow of power between the V8, the electric motors and the batteries.
The Ferrari SF90 Stradale breaks the mould for Ferrari as it’s the first Ferrari production car that is equipped with 4WD, which allows unbelievable power to be released by the Ferrari hybrid powertrain. This supercar also sets a new benchmark for speed taking only 2.5 seconds for 0-100km/h and 0-200km/h in just 6.7 seconds.
The Ferrari SF90 Stradale was engineered with an outstanding technique to overcome the heavy battery. By using carbon fibre to build the chassis and body shell, the Ferrari SF90 maintains a high standard in terms of overall weight, rigidity and centre of gravity.
The active system located at the rear of the supercar regulates the airflow over the upper body to reduce drag at high speeds and increase downforce in corners, under braking and during changes of direction.
Ferrari SF90 Stradale Interior
The cockpit of the new Ferrari SF90 Stradale is the start of an innovative interior which will carry over to Ferrari’s entire future models. It appears futuristic with a focus on creating a wraparound aeronautical inspiration. Ferrari incorporated a modernized steering wheel that features a touchpad that allows the driver of this new supercar almost full control over every car feature of this supercar with just a touch of their thumb. The central cluster is digital with a 16-inch screen which is the first time this type of screen has been adopted in a production supercar. The Ferrari SF90 Stradale also foresees keyless technology.
Ferrari SF90 Stradale Power:
The Ferrari SF90 Stradale is the first PHEV Ferrari with a V8 4.0-litre turbocharged engine coupled with 3 electric motors producing a total of 1,000 horsepower. The turbos in this supercar have electronically-controlled wastegates to enhance catalyser heating and new compressor volutes to elevate fluid-dynamics. The Ferrari SF90 Stradale has a new 8-speed transmission which improves efficiency on the track and in urban driving.
The 3 electric motors in the Ferrari SF90 Stradale are capable of providing 25-kilometre range in all-electric mode. The front motors are integrated into the launch control to provide instant maximum performance when accelerating. The Ferrari SF90 will change the standards of high-performance supercars and will influence competitors to be more innovative to meet the new benchmark.
Drivers can also select different driving modes:
eDrive: where the supercar will be operating as a fully electric car using the motors on the front axle. This mode is for urban driving or when the driver of this supercar wants to drive in silence without the thunderous V8 engine.
Hybrid: like any other hybrid car, the system controls freely whether to use the V8 combustion engine or just the electric motors.
Performance: The V8 is roaringly confirming that power is instantly and fully available when required.
Qualify: if you are after the full power of the Ferrari SF90 Stradale, this mode will ensure exceptional output by engaging the electric motors to work at their maximum potential with the combustion engine.
Ferrari SF90 Stradale Chassis
Being a hybrid car, the Ferrari SF90 Stradale is 270 kg heavier but is still kept at 1,570 kg. The chassis has a new design with an all carbon fibre bulkhead between the cabin and the engine and two new aluminium alloys. Also, the noise, vibration and harshness have been improved in this Ferrari supercar by the use of the quiet aluminium for the floor pan.
Ferrari SF90 Stradale Aerodynamics
Aerodynamics is the language of the new Ferrari SF90 Stradale. This supercar delivers downforce and aerodynamic efficiency at a level never done before by any supercar manufacturer! The outcome in terms of car performance is impressive indeed and all come to the 390kg of downforce at 250 km/h.
Ferrari SF90 Stradale Design
Latest car news, Ferrari aimed to create an extreme supercar capable of producing a new level of car performance. The Ferrari SF90 Stradale has a ground-breaking design that depicts the car’s mission as an extreme supercar. The definition of the exterior styling was inspired by that principle: to create a forward-looking, innovative design that portrays the car’s mission as an extreme supercar.
The Ferrari SF90 Stradale uses matrix LED headlight technology to increase visibility in all driving conditions. The rear lights have been changed from Ferrari’s iconic round shape whilst still maintaining the Ferrari DNA in its details.
Ferrari is just one of those cars that entire populations salivate over and the SF90 is no different. In fact, due to the exclusivity and outstanding achievement of this supercar, it only makes car enthusiasts buckle at the knees at the thought of driving one of these sophisticated beasts.
