The first-ever most powerful supercar from Ferrari

The first Ferrari plug-in hybrid sports car “SF 90 Stradale” is the most powerful in history. Extracting up to 986 horsepower with a 3.9-liter V8 engine and three electric motors. It is capable of going 0-60 mph in just 2.5 seconds, and its top speed is a whopping 211 mph. Two motors drive the front wheels and the third one is directly connected to a gasoline engine behind the seat. Normally, it is hybrid drive mode with the combination of gasoline engine and electric motors. Even in the full electric mode with electric motors only, it drives up to 15 miles at an 84 mph.

Ferrari announced the first hybrid car “LaFerrari” in 2013; the second was the convertible “LaFerrari Aperta”, announced in 2016. But neither was a plug-in hybrid car.

On the other hand, “SF90”, a plug-in hybrid car, can be charged via an electric cable. Unlike many other cars, there is no large computer screen in the middle part of the dashboard. Instead, all digital displays are installed in front of the driver’s seat and show the necessary information.

According to Ferrari, the “SF90” is designed to allow drivers to perform various operations almost without releasing their hands from the steering wheel. From the engine switch to the windshield wiper and headlight control, many functions correspond with the touch-sensitive pad on the steering wheel. Regarding temperature control and mirror adjustment, etc., a touch interface is installed on a dashboard accessible from the steering wheel, and the windshield in front of the driver’s seat is equipped with a head-up display that projects information.

In addition, the “SF90” is not a limited model that only hundreds of cars are produced in the world, but it is the new first-class “mass-produced car”. Even though the price has not been announced yet, it is expected to be lower than the previous two hybrid models that were launched with very expensive price, and the first delivery will be at the beginning of next year.
