0 - 62 mph Time
The Ferrari LaFerrari was the Prancing Horse’s first hybrid supercar, the SF90 Stradale builds on that with a plug-in hybrid system that has impressive specs. The Ferrari SF90 vs. LaFerrari comparisons are inevitable, and while the now-classic LaFerrari is slightly faster, the SF90 Stradale offers some impressive performance and unique features of its own.
Both models benefit from Formula 1 engineering, and the LaFerrari’s HY-KERS hybrid system was truly trailblazing. This marriage of an electric motor with a V12 engine was a first for Ferrari, and enabled impressive efficiency and immediate power delivery. With a top speed of 218 mph and the ability to jump to 62 mph from a standstill in just 2.4 seconds, the LaFerrari remains the most powerful Prancing Horse built for the road. This model is all the more coveted given that only 500 were made.
The SF90 Stradale’s twin-turbocharged V8 engine produces 769 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque on its own, but its three electric motors push its overall output to 986 hp. It’s able to reach speeds of 211 mph and go from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.6 seconds. The SF90 Stradale also holds the distinction of being able to travel up to 15.5 miles and reach speeds of up to 84 mph on electric power alone, courtesy of the power stored in the car’s 7.9-kWh lithium-ion battery.
The small gap in speed is incredibly impressive considering the SF90 features a V8 engine and the LaFerrari uses a V12! It’s a testament to the incredible efficiency of Ferrari’s engineering. Either will sing on a track around Indianapolis or the highways of St. Louis.
The Ferrari SF90’s interior is an embrace of minimalism, with no physical buttons present on the dashboard — controls are operated via capacitive touch interfaces. All driving controls are located on the steering wheel itself. The instrument panel is also completely digital, displaying gauge readouts and navigation information on a 16-inch curved screen. The SF90 is also Ferrari’s first car with a head up display.
Like the SF90, the LaFerrari’s interior is a minimalistic triumph, emphasizing that the car is built to perform above all else. It features a reconfigurable digital instrument panel as well as a steering wheel designed to have all driving controls close at hand.
Visually, the SF90 Stradale eschews the V-shaped center of the Laferrari’s hood in favor of a smoother overall look. A similar sensibility is visible when viewing each car in profile: while the Laferrari’s sides have a carved, angular appearance, the SF90 Stradale’s design sensibility continues to skew toward a relatively clean and simple appearance. The SF90 also sports new C-shaped headlamps and a triple LED bar connecting the car’s nose to its fenders.
While the SF90 Stradale represents an evolution of the technology pioneered by the LaFerrari, the latter is still king in terms of raw performance. The most exacting enthusiasts in Chicago will find plenty to love in both models, and you can inquire about purchasing one of your own when you contact Continental AutoSports.
