Ferrari has expanded its plug-in hybrid range with the unveiling of the SF90 Spider overnight. 
Based on the SF90 coupe, the Spider uses the same 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.
Ferrari claims the SF90 Spider can sprint from 0-100km/h in 2.5 seconds, and hit 200km/h in 7.0 seconds flat. The top speed is said to be 340km/h.
The Spider is 100kg heavier than its coupe and tips the scales at 1670kg.
Moving to the roof, it’s a retractable hardtop which can be raised or lower in 14 seconds and can be operated when the car is moving.
Further changes include louvres at the top of the engine screen and a revised cooling setup for the brakes.
The SF90 Spider sits on 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 255/35 tyres up front, and wider 315/30 rubber at the rear.
Ferrari’s Australian arm is yet to confirm local availability and pricing.
