EVO Magazine has revealed their evaluate of the 2020 Ferrari SF90 Stradale, the most recent range-topping particular version from Maranello. We’ve sourced the entire photos for this information article from EVO’s web site.
As they so concisely put it, it’s the opening of a brand new section of the supercar arms race, the place a supercar manufacturing collection automotive has hypercar ranges of energy. It opens the door to a world the place “supercar” now means a automotive with as much as 1,000 HP, and hypercars will should be extraordinarily particular to earn their moniker.
And the SF90 is a powerhouse of a supercar. It boasts a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 chucking out 770 HP, mixed with three electrical motors (one per entrance wheel, one for the rear axle) including 217 HP, for an efficient 987 HP.
Or, principally the identical energy as a LaFerrari.
The technical acumen doesn’t cease there, both. The 8-speed dual-clutch transmission makes use of a smaller flywheel than the 488 GTB or F8 Tributo, permitting it to take a seat 15mm decrease within the automotive.
As effectively, it’s constructed and not using a reverse gear, saving 10 Kg over the F8 Tributo’s 7-speed variant. Reverse is taken care of fully by way of the electrical motors, with the clutch disengaged so the rear wheels can spin freely. The SF90 additionally shifts 30% sooner than the F8 Tributo’s already fast transmission.
Zero to 60 takes simply 2.5 seconds. In a particular manufacturing collection automotive. Not a hypercar. Not a super-limited, just like the F collection.
It additionally makes use of quite a lot of Formulation 1 derived passive and energetic aerodynamics, at the side of exceptionally adaptable traction and stability management programs, to nook like only a few vehicles can. To wit, the SF90 Stradale can lap Ferrari’s Fiorano take a look at monitor in 79 seconds flat.
If that quantity means little, let’s line it up in opposition to just a few names. LaFerrari lapped in 79.7 seconds. The F12 tdf, a supercar jampacked with hypercar tech, did it in 81 seconds flat. A 488 Pista, a track-oriented particular version? 81.5 seconds
In reality, the one vehicles in a position to lap Fiorano sooner than the SF90 are the Formulation 1 vehicles from the group that the automotive takes its title from. Scuderia Ferrari 90, to rejoice the 90th yr of racing underneath Enzo’s well-known final title.
It additionally exhibits the SF90 Stradale’s one deadly flaw. It’s so highly effective, so unbelievably succesful at going quick, so completely past the area of the street (stradale) that it’s meant for that there isn’t any real looking place on the planet, other than some elements of Germany, the place the truest potential of all that energy can be utilized.
