Is There a Ferrari Hybrid?

Ferrari 296 GTB

Ferrari might be known for their large and powerful naturally aspirated engines, but any legacy worthy of the name should also serve as a foundation for new innovations. Times are changing, and Ferrari is changing too—but is there a Ferrari hybrid on the market today? As it turns out, there are several—and the first hybrid Ferrari vehicle appeared almost a decade ago. Now that Ferrari is moving to electrify most of its lineup, let’s take a look at the Ferrari hybrid cars that have put the Prancing Horse’s innovative design philosophy on full display.

Ferrari Hybrid Lineup: SF90 Stradale / Spider

The Ferrari SF90 Stradale is a plug-in hybrid vehicle, driven by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 and no fewer than three electric motors—one for each of the front wheels, and another for the transmission. Together, these provide an incredible rating of up to 986 horsepower! Plus, the SF90 can even drive for up to 26 miles on electric power alone—potentially eliminating the need to use gasoline for short trips.

The SF90 Stradale is a two-door berlinetta—or sports coupe. The SF90 Spider is similar to the Stradale in most respects, but it replaces the static hardtop with a retractable hardtop roof. 

Ferrari Hybrid Lineup: 296 GTB / 296 GTS

The Ferrari 296 GTB has been lauded by its manufacturers as “the first real Ferrari with six cylinder,” but don’t make the mistake of thinking that’s all you’ll find under the hood. That’s because the 296 pairs a 3.0L twin-turbocharged V6 with a 123-kW electric motor for a total output of 818 horsepower and 546 lb-ft of torque. On electric power alone, the 296 can travel for up to 15.5 miles before the gasoline engine kicks on.

You can think of the 296 as the SF90’s smaller cousin—and just like the latter, the 296 is offered in both coupe and convertible configurations. Whether you opt for the hardtop GTB or the convertible GTS, we’re sure you’ll love how this Ferrari hybrid handles the roads from Indy to Illinois.

Ferrari Hybrid Lineup: LaFerrari (2013–2018)

No review of the Ferrari hybrid lineup would be complete without mention of the first-ever electrified production vehicle manufactured by the brand. The one and only LaFerrari is powered by a direct-injection V12 and a 120-kW electric motor, which together deliver a total output of 950 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque.

When it was released, the Ferrari LaFerrari was the single most powerful vehicle that Ferrari had ever manufactured. Moreover, hybrid technology allowed it to reduce fuel consumption by up to 40%, versus otherwise comparable Ferrari sports cars. You shouldn’t be surprised that drivers from Indianapolis to Milwaukee took notice immediately—or that Ferrari has made hybrid powertrains an increasingly important part of their lineup from there on out! Compare the LaFerrari to the SF90 to get a better sense of how the Prancing Horse has grown.

Although you can no longer order a new LaFerrari, collectors in Chicagoland may be able to find one in our pre-owned exotic inventory.
