The beautifully crafted Ferrari SF90 Stradale Spider has nearly 1000bhp on offer, and just like the hard-top version, it can do the 0 – 100km/h dash in just 2.5 seconds, despite being 100kg heavier!
The most powerful Ferrari ever, the SF90 Stradale, just got sexier. That’s right! The Italian marquee has just pulled the wraps off the roadster version of the SF90 Stradale. And despite the extra 100kg, the SF90 Stradale has the same 0 to 100km/h time of 2.5 seconds and an identical top-speed of 340km/h.
The 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 produces a mind-boggling 986bhp and 800Nm. The engine is supported by a 7.6kW Lithium-ion battery pack and three electric motors, which contribute about 217bhp in the total output. The battery pack gives it a range of 25km and a top speed of 135km/h on electric power. Just like in the hard-top, the battery can be charged while the car is being driven or by an external charging point. The engine continues to be paired with an 8-speed DCT and gets aid from an e-diff and a RAC-e electric front axle to harness all that insane power. To keep the centre of gravity lower and to keep the weight in check, Ferrari has also altered the intake and exhaust system and also lowered the turbocharger assembly.
While the engine is a familiar one from the SF90 Stradale, which was showcased last year, the highlight of this one, of course, is the convertible top. The aluminium retractable roof of the Spider can be lowered/raised in just 15 seconds, either at standstill or while the car is driven at low speeds. Ferrari has also redesigned the centre section of the cockpit for better airflow management. The Spider gets a central trim piece between the driver and the passenger, which channels the wind into a double layer trim on the upper part of the tunnel.
In select markets, bookings of the Ferrari SF90 Stradale Spider have already commenced with deliveries likely to start sometime around May-June next year. There’s no word about the SF90 Stradale Spider being brought into India as yet.
