Before you get too excited, this isn’t the replacement of the LaFerrari. Oh no, that would come in 2022. Instead, the SF90 Stradale is Ferrari’s first series production plug-in hybrid car and the brand’s newest flagship until the LaFerrari replacement arrives later.

Inside, the SF90 Stradale features a reworked version of the F154 twin-turbo V8 that’s found in the F8 Tributo and Portofino. It features a larger bore, revised intake and exhaust, new injectors, and it even sits 50mm lower in the chassis for a lower center of gravity.

On its own, the V8 produces 769hp. It is then augmented by three electric motors which produce an additional 216hp — two on the front axle and one in the back. Add them up and you get a all-wheel drive and a total of 986hp.

That’s a lot of power, especially in a car that weighs 1,570kg, which is relatively light considering it doesn’t have the benefit of a carbon tub and all the additional electronics it has to carry.

Performance is naturally biblical. After all, this car sits above the 812 Superfast in Ferrari’s hierarchy. 0-100km/h in 2.5 seconds and 0-200km/h in just 6.9 seconds ensure no other car that is currently on sale from Ferrari can keep up. Top speed is over 340km/h.

And if you want to show your concern for the environment, you can. This is a plug-in, after all. Although we doubt most owners will be using their SF90 Stradales solely in full-electric mode it's good to know that once fully charged, you can get about 24km out of the batteries — enough for a quick jaunt to the supermarket and back — and get up to speeds of over 130km/h.

Prices have not been determined but seeing that the 812 Superfast already costs about $1.5 million locally, don't be surprised if the price of the SF90 Stradale begins with the number two.
