Ferrari entered the hybrid supercar race back in 2013 with the 950hp LaFerrari, a vehicle significant not only for the fact that it was the first electrically-assisted model in the Italian automaker’s history but also because it was the most powerful production car ever to leave Maranello. Despite such a landmark moment, seven years later, it’s the 986hp SF90 Stradale that tops Ferrari’s lineup. And now the plug-in hybrid has been given a roofless refresh.
Like its coupe counterpart, the SF90 Spider is powered by a 796hp twin-turbo V8 working in conjunction with a trio of electric motors. With two located at the front axle and one between the engine and transmission, they add a further 217hp to the mix. What results is a 0-62mph sprint in just 2.5s and a top speed of 211mph. And when it comes to its new folding roof, the SF90 makes use of the aluminum retractable hardtop that was first introduced in the 2011 California. Weighing 40kg (88lbs) pounds lighter than conventional designs, it takes up just 100 liters of space. What’s more, it can be operated on the move — taking only 14s to fold or deploy. Prices have yet to be announced, but it’ll arrive late next year.
