After its initial announcement back in May this year, Ferrari’s first range-model plug-in hybrid supercar SF90 Stradale has finally arrived in Hong Kong as launched by Blackbird Concessionaires.
The “SF90” in the name represents the 90th anniversary of Scuderia Ferrari, while “Stradale” simply means “road” in Italian and explains the car’s nature. The twin-turbo V8 engine now has an increased capacity of 3,990 cc and is able to generate maximum 769 hp and 800 Nm. Supported by three electric motors, the hybrid powertrain unleashes 985 hp combined and propel the SF90 Stradale from standstill to 100 km/h in merely 2.5 seconds. 0-200 km/h acceleration only takes 6.7 seconds before the car reaches its top speed of 340 km/h. SF90 Stradale is also the very mid-engine sports car equipped with 4WD technology.
The styling and form of SF90 Stradale is new to the Ferrari design language. The proportions of the front, central and rear volumes have been revisited, resulting in a more compact overhangs on both front and rear. Curved windshield, slender A-posts, wide wheel track, C-shaped headlights and the slit on the brakes’ air intakes are all functionally and aesthetically appealing, while the high exhaust pipes and redesigned tail lights will definitely catch passerby’s attention.
SF90 Stradale is offered in two versions, namely the standard version plus a more sports-oriented Assetto Fiorano configuration. The latter comes with upgrades such as GT racing-derived Multimatic shock absorbers, carbon-fibre door panels and underbody and titanium springs and entire exhaust line, cutting 30 kg off the car’s weight.
