Ferrari SF90 Spider: All you need to know about the automaker’s first production plug-in hybrid spider

Unveiled on 12 November during a digital event, the Ferrari SF90 Spider is the spider version of the SF90 Stradale. In addition to setting new benchmarks for performance, innovation, and the thrill of driving, the SF90 Spider is also the Italian automaker’s first production plug-in hybrid spider. Thanks to the latest iteration of Ferrari’s signature Retractable Hard Top architecture, you will notice further excitement and versatility on top of the same supercar specification and performance as the SF90 Stradale.

The SF90 Spider is powered by a 780 cv turbo-charged V8 engine that’s augmented by three electric motors (paired with F1 eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox)—allowing the vehicle to achieve the century sprint in 2.5 seconds. For an exhilarating experience behind the wheel, the driver only has to select one of the power unit modes (eDrive, Hybrid, Performance, and Qualify) on the brand-new eManettino. The SF90 Spider has a maximum speed of 340 kilometres per hour. In addition, raising the bar for standing starts to unparalleled new speeds is the inclusion of AWD.

On the inside, drivers can control virtually every aspect of the car without moving their hands with the assistance of an innovative new HMI concept that includes a new steering wheel with a touchpad. With a 16-inch curved HD screen, the central instrument cluster is now entirely digital. As for automatic gearbox controls, they are now actioned by a grille-style feature referencing the brand’s well-known manual gearshift gate.

The Ferrari SF90 Spider is now about 40 kilogrammes lighter because of the use of aluminium in its construction. Thinking of pushing the track car vocation to the extreme? The SF90 Spider is available with a dedicated specification—such as the adoption of high performance materials, a carbon-fibre rear spoiler and road-homologated Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres, as well as Multimatic shock absorbers.

What are your thoughts on the new convertible? If you’re into the pinnacle of Ferrari technology, the SF90 Spider is the ideal vehicle. No news yet on whether the SF90 Spider will be available here in Malaysia, but that shouldn’t stop you from marveling.
