Ferrari SF90 Stradale With A Hybrid Drivetrain Launched
As the awareness regarding environmental concerns increases, companies across the world are looking to adopt clean energy. Italian supercar manufacturer, Ferrari has adopted the best of both worlds in its latest supercar, which is the SF90 Stradale. The supercar is referred to as hybrid due to the fact it packs a 4-liter 769-horsepower Turbo V8 engine alongside three electric motors which have a combined output of 162 kW or 217 HP. The company claims while both the power sources function simultaneously, the SF90 can achieve a speed of 100 km/h in a mere 2.5 seconds.
The supercar sports a torque-vectoring AWD (All Wheel Drive) system and an eight-gear dual-clutch transmission. Even though the SF90 is less powerful than the top of line LaFerrari on paper, the hybrid supercar can reach higher top speeds owing to the lower overall weight.
Ferrari SF90 includes a modern cockpit design, with the Manettino-style steering wheel (where the adjustment controls are mounted on the steering wheel itself). Furthermore, the steering wheel has a touch interface which can be used to switch between various modes (including the hybrid mode).
The Italian company has confirmed that the Ferrari SF90 Stradale is not a limited edition vehicle. However, the supercar is expected to be highest-priced model in the already expensive lineup of Ferrari, which means that not a lot of people will be able to afford it. The company has not provided an official statement regarding the price of the supercar yet. As per other reports, Ferrari may also be working on an all-electric car. Even though the design may take its fair share of time to be brought to reality, it is quite evident that electric cars are the future, and with the SF90 Stradale, the Italian manufacturer is one step closer to achieving it.
