Ferrari has revealed the new SF90 Stradale, as well as being the most powerful and fastest road car in the company’s history, it’s also the brand’s first plug-in hybrid (PHEV).
Power comes from a mid-mounted 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8 producing 574kW and 800Nm, it combines with three electric motors that generate 162kW. The system has a total output of 735kW or a neat 1000 horsepower in the old language. Drive is sent to all four wheels through a new eight-speed dual-clutch transmission.
In terms of performance, Ferrari says the SF90 Stradale can sprint from 0-100km/h in 2.5 seconds and from 0-200 km/h in 6.7 seconds. The top speed is listed at 340km/h.
When the 7.9kWh battery pack is fully charged, the first petrol-electric Ferrari is capable of an electric driving range of 25km. It can also reach 130km/h in EV mode.
For those wanting to size up the garage, the SF90 Stradale is 4710mm long, 1972mm wide, 1186mm high with a 2650mm wheelbase. The dry weight is 1570kg distributed 45:55 over the front and rear.
Stopping power comes from a fly-by-wire braking system with 398mm Brembo units at the front and 360mm discs at the rear.
The exterior features short overhangs, a unique nose, new matrix LED headlights, new rectangular tail-lights and high exhaust pipes.
In another first for a Ferrari, the central instrument cluster comprises a single 16-inch digital HD screen which curves towards the driver to make it easier to read and to emphasise the F1-style wrap-around cockpit effect.
The SF90 Stradale isn’t a limited edition, meaning there should be no production restrictions. Australian pricing is yet to be confirmed, expect more details to be announced prior to the car’s launch next year.
