Ferrari Says It Can Adapt SF90 Stradale Tech To Other Models

Ferrari has stated that the hybrid technology found within the SF90 Stradale will trickle its way down the company’s range.

While the SF90 Stradale isn’t the Italian car manufacturer’s first production hybrid, it is its first production plug-in hybrid and this is technology which other Ferrari models will benefit from.

“There will be other [hybrid] models, but with specific powertrain characteristics,” Ferrari chief technology officer Michael Leiters told Auto Express, adding that it would be “very easy” to adapt the hybrid tech from the SF90 into other models.

The new plug-in hybrid supercar utilizes a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine alongside a trio of electric motors to deliver a combined 986 hp, 769 hp of which comes from the V8 engine alone. The electric motors are fed by a small 7.6 kWh battery pack which means it can travel up to 15.5 miles (25 km) on electricity alone.

Ferrari has made no secret of the fact that hybridization will play an important role in the company’s future, particularly since it is becoming increasingly difficult to build high-performance supercars which comply with emissions regulations.

This year has already proven to be a very significant one for the company. In March, Ferrari unveiled its successor to the 488 GTB in the form of the spectacular F8 Tributo. It has followed up that car with the unveiling of the SF90 Stradale and intends on launching three other new models. Details about these new models remain murky but Ferrari senior vice president of commercial and marketing, Enrico Galliera, has confirmed that there will be a new entry-level mid-engine Ferrari sports car unveiled this year with a turbocharged V6 engine.

      Me too. However I wouldn’t mind if the lines were less busy (bring back Pininfarina?) and the name is totally uninspiring. I know that it means metaphorically “F1 car for the street”, but I bet almost no one knows the name of current Ferrari F1 car and its like Mclaren when they named car with some internal corporate code: MP4-12C.
