If you’re just looking at the spec sheets of the SF90 Stradale and SF90 Spider, you could be forgiven for thinking that they’re almost the same vehicle: performance is almost identical, as are the interior features. But when you behold the two models themselves, the difference becomes clear: the Spider is a drop-top, while the Stradale is a coupe. There are a few key differences related to that, but ultimately whether you prefer the Ferrari SF90 Spider vs. SF90 Spider comes down to whether you want to feel the wind in your hair as you drive a world-class hypercar.


Performance

The SF90 Stradale and Spider share the same stunning hybrid powertrain that propels both to a top speed of 211 mph. The only key difference under the hood is acceleration: the SF90 Spider is slightly faster, able to reach 60 mph in 2.4 seconds, while the Ferrari SF90 Stradale set a blistering 2.0-second 0-60-mph time at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in July 2021!

Exterior

It’s no surprise that there are styling differences between the Ferrari SF90 Stradale and SF90 Spider, given that the Spider sports a retractable hardtop and the Stradale is not a convertible. The vehicles share an underlying structure, but the Spider is 220 pounds heavier than the Stradale. Despite the added weight, the Spider sports enough aerodynamic enhancements to increase downforce over the Stradale.

The Spider’s retractable hardtop can be raised or lowered in 14 seconds, and is made of aluminum, which provides a significant weight savings over a more traditional steel hardtop. And there’s good news for anyone who’s looking to have the joy of a convertible and the capability of a coupe: with the roof in place, the SF90 Spider’s aerodynamic efficiency numbers are nearly identical to those of the Stradale.

The Spider is also available with the same optional Assetto Fiorano pack as the Stradale, which is comprised of a variety of upgrades aimed at improving ride quality and aerodynamics. It trims 46 pounds off of the SF90 Spider’s weight, compared to 66 pounds off of the standard SF90 Stradale. It also adds a high-downforce carbon fiber rear spoiler, multimatic shocks, and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2 tires.

Interior

Aside from the obvious interior differences that come with comparing a convertible to a coupe, you’ll find the same features inside of the SF90 Spider that graced the interior of the SF90 Stradale. That means a cockpit centered on the driver, providing maximum visibility and accessibility to all vehicle features. But it also means that you’ll enjoy amenities such as Bluetooth phone and streaming audio, a voice-activated navigation system, and Apple CarPlay.
