2022 Ferrari SF90 Stradale/Spider: Italian sports car icon Ferrari isn’t the first brand that comes to mind when thinking about plug-in hybrid powertrains, but the 2022 Ferrari SF90 Stradale/Spider models offer an electrified setup with 986 horsepower.

When we tested one at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, we recorded a zero-to-60-mph time of just 2.0 seconds, which makes it officially the quickest car to 60 mph that we’ve ever tested.

ENGINE AND IMPLEMENTATIONS

With the 2022 Ferrari SF90 Stradale/Spider, power comes from a massive V-8 and three electric motors. The 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 generates a mighty 769 horsepower on its own, and the trio of electric motors provides an additional 217 horsepower.

In the end, the gas/electric powertrain generates a net output of 986 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels, making this the first mid-engine Ferrari with all-wheel drive. An eight-speed automatic transmission oversees the proceedings. As you’d expect, all that power under the hood translates into blistering acceleration.

Ferrari’s official estimate is that it will rocket from zero to 60 mph in a scant 2.5 seconds; our testing proved that number to be conservative as the SF90 ripped to 60 in just 2.0 seconds—something no production vehicle has ever done before.

Different driving modes allow you to tailor the car’s handling to suit your preferences. The lineup includes EV Only, Hybrid, Performance, and, last but not least, Qualify—a setting that allows you to fully exploit the car’s performance capabilities.

ENERGY AND REAL-WORLD MPG

The EPA estimates that the 2022 Ferrari SF90 Stradale/Spider should deliver 18 mpg combined when running solely on gasoline and up to 51 MPGe when utilizing both its gasoline engine and its electric motors.

We haven’t tested the SF90 on our 75-mph highway fuel-economy route, which is part of our testing regimen, so we can’t evaluate its real-world mpg. For more information about the SF90’s fuel economy, visit the EPA’s website.

INTERIOR, CONVENIENCE, AND BOOTH

The 2022 Ferrari SF90 Stradale/Spider‘s interior is fairly sedate, with the yellow prancing-horse logo adding a splash of color on the center of the steering wheel. This two-seat coupe is home to a sculpted dashboard with fluid lines that mimic the flowing design of the car’s exterior.

With high-performance exotics, cargo space is typically in short supply. This is certainly the case with the SF90, which provides roughly three cubic feet of room for your stuff.

IN-VEHICLE INFOTAINMENT AND INTERCONNECTIONS

All SF90 models come with an LCD monitor upfront and a six-speaker sound system. The car is also equipped with standard tech features such as Bluetooth phone and streaming audio, real-time traffic, and an integrated navigation system with a voice-activation feature. Apple CarPlay integration is offered, but Android Auto isn’t on the list of available amenities.

PROTECTION AND DRIVER-ASSISTANCE ASPECTS

Hypercars aren’t typically known for offering a broad selection of driver-assistance features, and this is true of the SF90. Amenities such as a blind-spot warning system aren’t available.
