Customer deliveries of the SF90 Stradale commenced recently, and it could very well be the world’s quickest production car in a straight-line.
Eager to see what Ferrari’s hybrid supercar is capable of, Brooks from the DragTimes channel on YouTube headed to Puerto Rico to test out a friend’s SF90 Stradale. What he discovered was a car that can leave everything else for dead.
When tested out on the street, the 986 HP SF90 Stradale knocked off the sprint to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 2.1 seconds and recorded a storming quarter-mile in just 9.62 seconds, times that were set with a full tank of gas.
How does this compare with the current straight line king of supercars, the McLaren 765LT? In December 2020, Brooks tested out a 765LT on the streets of Miami and recorded a best 0-60 mph time of 2.6 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 9.88 seconds, which means that the SF90 Stradale is faster.
Last month, the YouTuber took his very own 765LT to a drag strip and rocketed to 60 mph in just 2.1 seconds and sprinted down the quarter-mile in 9.33 seconds, showing just how important a prepped surface is in delivering the best acceleration times. If the SF90 Stradale can knock off the amount of time when tested at the drag strip with a near-empty tank of gas, there’s a real chance that it will beat the McLaren.
