About the Ferrari SF90 Stradale
The future of cars involves electric powertrain. Luxury car brands that focus on performance cannot just simply rely on full electric powertrain. Some would have to adopt both an internal combustion engine and electric motors in their cars to make the car more eco-friendly. And slowly, this is what Ferrari is doing with its cars. Its first hybrid model to come out was the LaFerrari. It is however not meant for long term production for it is a supercar. Their next hybrid model is the upcoming SF90 Stradale. It shares the name with their current Formula One car, the SF90. The Stradale was added to indicate it is for road use. It is related to the current 488 and F8 Tributo but is not their successor. It is a model of its own.
Under the hood is a 4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine, with 3 electric motors, completing the hybrid powertrain configuration. It can generate 986 horsepower, with the outputs combined. It is mated to an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission. Since it is a hybrid sports car, it can run full electric, but with a maximum range of 26 kilometers.
Like all current Ferrari cars, the SF90 Stradale sports leather trim. Carbon fiber trims are also available as an option. The steering wheel is further developed and now features touch panel instead of buttons. The Manettino dial is still present, but this one is over a touch panel, compared to the previously aluminum material of the steering wheel. Paddle shifters are a standard feature.
This model of the luxury Italian car brand features designs and technologies that are deemed as the future of Ferrari models. It will soon be standard to all Ferrari models.
