Ferrari engineers were spotted while testing what is considered a hardcore version SF90 Suffered.
Such hardcore models, often referred to as the Versione Speciale, which in Italian means “Special Version,” usually appear at the end of a model’s release, the latest being 2021. 812 Competitionwho booked 812 Superfast.
The SF90 Stradale has been with us since 2019, meaning its special version should appear in the second half of 2023, given the typical five-year life cycle of the Ferrari model before it gets a major upgrade or redesign.
Ferrari SF90 Stradale
The hardcore SF90 Stradale tester is only slightly camouflaged, indicating that we are still in the early stages of development. However, there are some modifications, such as a makeshift hood on the front hood, probably hiding a new air duct, as well as a revised front panel with an extended splitter.
Expect some changes to the chassis and possibly more power from the plug-in hybrid transmission to go with the new aerodynamic mods seen here. The SF90 Stradale’s powertrain consists of a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8, an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission and a trio of electric motors (two front and one rear). The setup is similar to what you’ll find in the Acura NSX, Porsche 918 Spyder and future Mercedes-Benz AMG Oneand good for a combined output of 986 hp.
Probably that SF90 Spider with open top will also receive Versione Speciale treatment. Expect the hardcore convertible to appear six months to a year after the coupe, though we could also see how they were both launched at the same time. Ferrari has several busy years ahead. His Purosangue crossover arrives later this year and also in the works are successors 812 Superfast and LaFerrari. Both cars are expected in 2024.
