Once again, the prancing horse emblem steals the headlines with the reveal of the Ferrari SF90 Stradale. According the the Italian carmaker this new model is its most powerful machine yet. Likewise the new ride is the apparently the company’s first plug-in hybrid. Another thing that’s great about this announcement is the confirmation that it will be a production series release. Hence, buyers don’t need to scramble about to get a piece of a limited edition pie before the allocation runs out.
So let’s get a closer look to find out more about the special sauce. First off, the SF90 Stradale is sporting a 4.0-liter turbocharged mid-mounted V8 engine with an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. It’s capable of producing 769 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. Accompanying its traditional power source are three electric motors. The setup puts two up front for each wheel and one on the rear axle. Hence, we’re looking at an all-wheel configuration for this sleek supercar.
Therefore, the combination of the engine and electric motors makes the Ferrari SF90 Stradale a menacing high-performance entry for 2019. Equally notable is the option for owners to switch an all-electric drive mode. However, a full-charge of its lithium-ion batteries can only manage a range of 16 miles. Moreover, the electric motors alone can manage a top speed of 84 mph. In contrast, with everything working in tandem, it will quickly zoom from zero to 60 miles per hour within 2.5 seconds with 986 mph behind its back. Ferrari is still keeping price and availability under wraps, yet we speculate a 2019 release window for those planning to get one.Learn more from Ferrari
