After several leaks, Ferrari have finally revealed SF90 Stradale, their first plug-in hybrid vehicle. Ferrari SF90 Stradale is a series-production supercar that celebrates 90th anniversary of Scuderia Ferrari. It emphasises strong link between company’s road and track car. The major important feature in the Ferrari SF90 Stradale is turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine that generates 769hp and 800 Nm of torque. The engine is paired with a hybrid system that features three electric motors. One motor is sandwiched between the V8 and a new eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, whereas the other two are located at the front axle. Electric motors are supported by a 7.9 kWh lithium-ion battery and offers an output of 217hp. Hence, all-wheel drive Ferrari SF90 Stradale gives an overall output of 986hp (1000PS).
With respect to powertrain, the hybrid supercar is able to accelerate from 0-62mph in 2.5 seconds and 0-124mph in 6.7 seconds. When the road is open, it can easily achieve top speed of 211 mph. SF90 Stradale is able to travel 15.5miles on electric power alone while being powered exclusively by front wheels. Plug-in hybrid vehicles are not known for being lightweight with Ferrari SF90 Stradale weighs just 1,570kg. Moreover, SF90 Stradale has record-breaking weight/power ratio” of 3.5 lbs/hp. Ferrari claims that it generates 390kg of downforce eat 155 mph which is new benchmark for high-performance road cars. The model also has aerodynamic side skirts, high-mounted intakes and a radical rear end. The latter flaunts prominent diffuser, dual exhaust tips, and Camaro-like taillights.
Keeping the weight down was achieved using a multi-material body and chassis. Additionally, components are made from lightweight materials like carbon fiber and new aluminum alloys. Architecture of Ferrari has 20% higher bending stiffness and 40% higher torsional rigidity than earlier platforms. Performance theme for Ferrari SF90 Stradale possess eManettino switch mounted on the steering wheel. Four different operating modes for powertrain is available for the drivers. eDrive is EV mode whereas Hybrid mode is default setting that optimizes overall efficiency pf the powertrain. Performance mode utilizes V8 engine to the fullest and provides power instantly when required. Qualify mode utilizes vehicle’s full potential as it gives precedence to power over battery charging and generates maximum output.
