The new Ferrari SF90 Spider has been revealed, with the Maranello-based firm effectively now offering its first series production plug-in hybrid electric vehicle in convertible form.

Like the SF90 Stradale coupé revealed back in May 2019, the new retractable hard-top model combines a 574 kW turbocharged 4,0-litre V8 engine with three electric motors for peak system outputs of 735 kW and 800 N.m.

That’s enough, says the Prancing Horse brand, for a blast from zero to 100 km/h in just 2,5 seconds (matching the coupé) and a top speed of 340 km/h. The SF90 Spider will reach 200 km/h in a claimed 7,0 seconds, some three-tenths behind the SF90 Stradale.

One electric motor is mounted at the rear (between the engine and the eight-speed dual-clutch transmission), with the other two sited on the front axle. The SF90 Spider is furthermore equipped with all-wheel drive. With a fully charged 7,9 kWh battery, Ferrari says the SF90 Spider can cover “up to 25 km” in fully electric mode, with top speed limited to 135 km/h. 

Ferrari says the retractable hard top – which adds around 100 kg for a claimed dry weight of 1670 kg – was adopted because it “guarantees optimal noise insulation and protection from the elements when raised”, does not deform at high speeds and provides “exceptional occupant space and comfort”. The roof can be raised or lowered in 14 seconds and can be deployed when the car is on the move (up to a speed of 45 km/h).

Inside, the SF90 Spider features a central instrument cluster comprising a single 16-inch screen curved towards the driver. An adjustable electric rear window is included to provide “superb occupant comfort” even at high speeds when the roof is lowered.

Expect the first deliveries to take place in the second quarter of 2021 in Europe, with the price set to start at €473 000 in Italy.
