Ferrari’s Hybrid Supercar is unveiled
Unveiled on the first of June, the extremely powerful HEV is charged by three electric motors and a twin turbo V8.
In an unusual move and despite the price not being formally announced, the entire production run was sold out by Ferrari enthusiasts who waited in anticipation for the arrival of the company’s first hybrid supercar.
In attendance at the launch was a group of 25 Australian VIP customers who all signed up to purchase the car on the spot; selling the entire Australian allocation in one hit.
The price, once announced, is expected to be over $1 million once on-road costs are calculated.
Ferrari is yet to reveal the claimed fuel consumption because tests are still being done, but it will likely be deemed an “eco car” according to Australia’s Green Vehicle Guide criteria – despite being capable of reaching 340km/h and having close to 1000 horsepower.
To save fuel, the hybrid Ferrari can only reverse using its electric motors.
With a claimed 0 to 100km/h time of 2.5 seconds, the SF90 Stradale is almost as quick as a Formula One car. It can eclipse 200km/h in about the same time it takes most performance cars to reach half that speed.
