Ferrari recently launched its latest performance supercar, the SF90 XX, on the Pista di Fiorano race track. The new special edition SF90 XX Stradale and SF90 XX Spider, lighter and more powerful than their standard counterparts, are street-legal but with upgrades that edge them closer to being track-only racers.
The SF90 XX Stradale gets a more elongated aggressive profile with the inclusion of a fixed rear wing, a larger front splitter, and a redesigned underbody. Aero elements were added to increase downforce and include a pair of ducts on each side of the nose, two near the center, three gills on each front fender, and two inlets on the engine cover just behind the roof.
The SF90 XX Spider features much of the same exterior upgrades, but with the drop-top, it loses some of the rear air inlets.
Inside, SF90 XX loses its carpeting and gets carbon fiber adjustable monocoque bucket seats, an Alcantara dashboard, carbon fiber trims, and a stripped-down center console in a matte-finish carbon fiber. The eight-speed transmission’s chrome gear selector has been moved forward a bit while the power window switches have been moved further back.
Both models use the same plug-in hybrid twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 powertrains. Upgrades to the engine include polished inlet and exhaust ports, new pistons, and increased compression ratio. The eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox also upgrades with new shift logic carried over from the Daytona SP3, which adds exhaust noise when changing gears.
The SF90 XX models also benefit from redesigned front calipers with better cooling, 390 millimeters rear rotors, and a new ABS EVO controller to work in tandem with the 6W-CDS sensor. Peak power for the special edition cars sits at 786 horsepower, with a new Extra Boost feature for the electric motors, the total system output stands at 1016 hp. Both models can go from 0-62 mph in 2.3 seconds, with a top speed of 199 mph.
Only 799 SF90 XX Stradale coupe units, priced at around $844,000, and 599 SF90 XX Spiders, priced at around $932,000, will be produced, and all units have already been sold. For more information, please visit the Ferrari website.
