A car-spotter has given us a look into the development of Ferrari's upcoming SF90 Stradale plug-in hybrid.
The 987-horsepower hypercar is a good way into its production and test cars have hit Ferrari's Fiorano test track recently.
The Italian car manufacturers have taken in the direction of hybrid and turbocharging tech, yet the inbound SF90 still sounds like a traditional Ferrari and you might have no clue you're looking at a plug-in vehicle if you were to hear it in action. You're going to anyway, because we have a video below showing the car speeding through the Fiorano.
The SF90 boasts a 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged, V-8 engine that also pairs two 109-horsepower electric motors. That makes it so that an output of 987 total horsepower is achieved along with 885 pound-feet of torque.
Ferrari has also kept the car below 3,500 pounds despite all of the components under the hood. They claim that it takes just 2.5 seconds to go from 0-60 mph, with a top speed of 211 mph.
And, while it carries a V8, it's superior to the V-12-powered 812 Superfast because of the hybrid system.
Ferrari CTO Michael Hugo Leiters previously revealed that the engineers involved in the car's development were tempted to make it an all-wheel drive.
The SF90 Stradale's front axle motors will offer torque vectoring which provides advantages considered to be equivalent to a 440-pound reduction in total weight at speeds below 130 mph.
Basically, more wheels make getting all of that power down a lot easier.
According to Leiters, the V-12 will be around for a while still, albeit being outperformed by the 4.0-liter V-8.
Ferrari has plans to have 15 new models roll out by 2022. Some of these cars will be versions of existing models and 60 percent will be hybrids.
