Ferrari launches convertible version of the SF90 Stradale hybrid car

Ferrari today released the new SF90 Spider, a convertible version of its hybrid vehicle, the SF90 Stradale, and is part of the Italian luxury carmaker's effort to reach 60% of its sales of hybrid technology by 2022.

This new car shares the same features as the SF90 Stradale 4WD, released last year, including an eight-cylinder internal-combustion engine producing 780 horsepower, two front-mounted electric motors, and a retractable hardtop adding 220 hp. .

The spider - which weighs 100 kilograms more than Stradal - is sold in Italy for around 473,000 euros and more than $ 430,000 for Stradal. The first batch of products is expected to be delivered to Europe in the second quarter of next year.

"We are preparing to use the SF90 as a super sports car," the Director of Sales and Marketing (Enrico Gallera) said in a speech on the Internet. He added, "We do not see any competitors in the market at the moment." He added that the SF90 will also appeal to owners of the V12 series high-performance sports cars.

In addition to the maximum speed of 340 km / h, the SF90 hybrid outdoor engine also saves 25 km of electricity, so the driver can quietly leave the house and drive through the city center without emissions.

So far, the COVID-19 pandemic has not delayed Ferrari's ambitious plans to launch a new model as the SF90 Spider is just two months away from the Portofino M (a transformation from the most popular supercar Ferrari sells).

He has always promised to bring two new cars to the market this year and set five records in 2019, including the SF90 Stradale, Ferrari's first production hybrid car.

The SF90 Spider is the new eighth model of the 15 Ferrari cars promised in its 2018-2022 plan.

The automaker, controlled by a holding company owned by Exor and the Italian Agnelli family, has pledged that sales of hybrid cars will reach 60% by 2022.

However, due to the need for further development of battery technology, it is expected that Ferrari electric cars will not be fully manufactured after 2025. This line of products should be prepared for customers who are accustomed to driving loudly rather than quietly. .

Gallera said: "At the moment, we didn't see electrical engineering as suitable for Ferrari's needs, but it will definitely be in the future, but not now."
