Summer may be gone, but we’re already looking forward to warmer weather, since Ferrari has taken the wraps off the convertible version of the SF90 Stradale, which is called the SF90 Spider. The SF90 Spider is also the first full series production convertible from Ferrari, which follows the limited LaFerrari Aperta.
The SF90 Spider is powered by a 3.99-liter V8 and an electric motor that generate a combined 989 horsepower. The powertrain is mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The SF90 Spider can accelerate from 0-62 mph in a quick 2.5 seconds and 0-124 mph in second seconds. It tops out at 211 mph.
There are four drive modes and the in the eDrive mode the 7.9 kWh battery gives the SF90 Spider a 15.5 mile electric range. There’s also a Hybrid mode to automatically switch back and forth between the combustion engine and electric motor. The Performance mode keeps the V8 running at all times and the Qualify mode taps the max power from the powertrain.
On the outside the SF90 Spider is nearly identical to the coupe. It features a retractable hardtop, which keeps things quiet inside when it’s closed. The top can be operated when the SF90 Spider zooming down the road and it only takes 14 seconds to deploy.
The SF90 Spider is scheduled to arrive in the third quarter of 2021 and it will cost about 10 percent more than the Stradale, which is currently priced at $507,300.
