1,000-HP Hybrid Ferrari Loses Its Roof

It takes 2.5 seconds for the open-top hybrid to accelerate from 0-100 km/h.

Ferrari has introduced a 1,000-hp plug-in hybrid version of the SF90 Stradale, namely the SF90 Spider. Despite its retractable hard top that increases the weight, the new model from Maranello accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 2.5 seconds, just as the coupe does.

With a raised metal top, the Spider looks almost identical to the coupe introduced last year. The differences lie in thinner window pillars, a different windshield, a rear windscreen and height reduced by 20 mm.

The folding mechanism for the open-top flagship was subjected to a deep modernization: the aluminum top panels weigh 40 kg less than the steel top of the coupe and take up only 100 liters of volume when folded. The powered top rises and retracts in 14 seconds, even on the move.

Despite the fact that Ferrari’s choice fell on a hard top, the weight of the model increased only up to 1,691 kg (121 kg). Dynamic indicators have not changed much: the convertible accelerates to 100 km/h in just 2.5 seconds, as well as the Stradale. However, the convertible accelerates to 200 km/h 0.3 seconds slower (in 7 seconds). A top speed is still 340 km/h.

The hypercars have the same powertrain: a 4.0-liter biturbo V8 (780 hp / 800 Nm), working in tandem with three electric motors that produce 220 hp in total. So, a total power of the powertrain is 1,000 hp. It comes with an eight-speed DCT. There are four driving modes, including eDrive, in which the coupe drives only on electric traction. An all-electric drive range is 25 km, and a top speed in electric mode is limited to 135 km/h.

For a surcharge, Ferrari offers to further reduce the weight of the Spider by 21 kg using the Assetto Fiorano package. Available for both versions of the S90, the kit includes carbon fiber and titanium components, a rear wing, suspension modifications and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. Also, customers can choose exclusive two-tone body paint.

The price of the Ferrari SF90 Spider is still unknown. The Stradale costs from €430,000.

Last week, Ferrari CEO Louis Camilleri said that he was not going to switch the entire model range to electric traction, despite global trends. However, one completely “green” model will still be released: the four-engined supercar will be released no earlier than in 5 years.
