Ferrari has been spied testing a prototype of the SF90 Stradale in Maranello, and in all likelihood, it is the open-top variant.
What makes us say that? The fact that Ferrari engineers went the extra mile trying to hide the roof by fixing that red cover to the body using the windows and duct tape. Probably dubbed the SF90 Stradale Spider, or simply the SF90 Spider, the supercar will be the brand’s second electrified convertible, after the LaFerrari Aperta.
Nonetheless, don’t think of it as the indirect successor of the hypercar, but rather a more advanced F8 Spider, and like its non-electrified sibling, it will perhaps feature a folding metal roof and not a soft top.
Reengineering the body will come with the obvious weight penalty over the regular SF90 Stradale. As a result, expect it to be just a hair slower, adding one or two tenths of a second to the 2.5 seconds the coupe requires for its 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint time.
The SF90 Stradale has a 211 mph (340 km/h) top speed and is powered by a 4.0-liter turbo’d V8 and three electric motors, mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The total output is 986 HP (1,000 PS / 735 kW) and the supercar can drive for around 15 miles (25 km) on zero emissions.
If we were to guess, we’d say that Ferrari will present the SF90 (Stradale) Spider early next year, with deliveries to commence before summer of 2021.
