The most powerful Ferrari car ever references Scuderia Ferrari
The new chapter in Ferrari’s history was launched on 29th May 2019 with the introduction of the SF90 Stradale PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle).
The new model delivers 1000cv from a new mixed power source and a weight to power of 1.57 kg/cv. This now top of the range model produces 390 kg downforce at 250 km/h and places a V8 at the top of the range for the first time.
The new car references the 90th anniversary of Scuderia Ferrari and achieves a strong link between race and road car production.
The car is powered by a 4 litre 90° V8 twin turbo producing 780cv and a max engine rpm of 8000, with the extra 220cv delivered by 3 electric motors. The third motor known as the MGUK (Motor Generator Unit, Kinetic) is placed between the engine and the gearbox
The other two motors are fitted to the front axle and make this the first Ferrari sportscar to be fitted with 4WD
All this power is electronically controlled using 4 modes through an 8 speed gearbox and producing a 0-100km/h of 2.5 sec and 0-200km/h of 6.7 seconds.
The car controls are fully digital and almost all aspects of the car can be controlled by just using your thumbs on haptic buttons on the steering wheel.
The internal combustion engine and electric motors work in synergy to generate an incredible 1,000 cv, which puts the SF90 Stradale at the very top of the range in performance terms. The control logic optimally manages the power flows either with the emphasis on efficiency or performance depending on the user profile selected by the driver.
Thanks to an additional steering wheel-mounted selector, dubbed the eManettino (analogous to the Manettino which is used to set the electronic vehicle dynamics modes), the driver can choose from four different power unit management modes:
eDrive: the internal combustion engine remains off and traction is entrusted entirely to the electric front axle. Starting with a fully charged battery, the car can cover up to 25 km in this mode. This mode is ideal for city centre driving or any other situation in which the driver wishes to eliminate the sound of the Ferrari V8.
Hybrid: this is the default setting when the car is turned on, in which the power flows are managed to optimise the overall efficiency of the system. The control logic autonomously decides whether to keep the internal combustion engine running or turn it off. If it is on, the internal combustion engine can run at maximum power thus guaranteeing powerful performance whenever the driver requires.
Performance: unlike ‘Hybrid’, this mode keeps the ICE running because the priority is more on charging the battery than on efficiency. This guarantees that power is instantly and fully available when required. This mode is best suited to situations in which driving pleasure and fun behind the wheel are the main focus.
Qualify: this mode allows the system to achieve maximum power output by allowing the electric motors to work at their maximum potential (162kW). The control logic prioritises performance over battery charging.
