The Ferrari SF90 XX Stradale: Pushing the Boundaries of Performance and Engineering

The Ferrari SF90 XX Stradale is a special limited series based on the SF90 Stradale, a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) with a V8 engine. It represents the latest and most extreme example of special versions in Ferrari’s lineup, pushing the performance of their road-going models to new levels. Both the SF90 XX Stradale and the SF90 XX Spider will be built in limited numbers, with 799 and 599 examples, respectively.

The SF90 XX Stradale features a 1,030 cv powertrain (30 cv more than the SF90 Stradale) with a PHEV layout. The powertrain consists of a mid-rear-mounted V8 turbo engine producing 797 cv and three electric motors (two on the front axle and one located between the engine and gearbox at the rear). The combined power output sets a new performance benchmark for the car.

In terms of aerodynamics, the SF90 XX Stradale has been extensively redesigned to deliver the most efficient aerodynamic performance of any road-going Ferrari in history. It features a fixed rear wing, a front splitter, vortex generators, and redesigned underbody surfaces to optimize downforce and minimize drag. The rear diffuser, louvres, and S-Ducts contribute to the car’s overall downforce at high speeds.

The vehicle dynamics of the SF90 XX Stradale focus on providing the most high-performance driving experience while retaining the functionalities of the hybrid powertrain. The car seamlessly transitions between electric and hybrid modes and features Torque Vectoring, Energy Recovery, and the Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer 2.0, which is active in all dynamic Manettino positions and grip conditions. The car also utilizes the ABS EVO controller to improve high-performance braking in dry conditions, enhancing handling on the track.

The SF90 XX Stradale features a distinctive engine sound, produced by optimizing the hot tube system, which transmits the combustion pulsations into the cabin, resulting in a rich and iconic Ferrari V8 sound. The car also has a specific cockpit airflow design for improved occupant comfort with the retractable hardtop open in the SF90 XX Spider variant.

Overall, the Ferrari SF90 XX Stradale is a road-legal car that embodies the maximum expression of Ferrari’s engineering concepts, drawing from its experience in the XX Programme and the SF90 Stradale, while pushing the boundaries of performance and driving experience.
