See Ferrari SF90 Stradale Warp Spacetime at Bonkers Acceleration Run

The Ferrari SF90 Stradale is a fantastic machine. Some would say it’s better than that, and with a powertrain developing 986 horsepower (735 kilowatts), they’d be well supported. Others might argue that it is worse because, in pursuit of speed, the SF90 Stradale uses prolific electrification. No matter which side of the discussion you are on, there is no denying that this hypercar is very, very Quick.

This comes alive in the video above, which shows a short run in an SF90 Stradale. In this case, we want to say short in terms of time, because it absolutely breaks down from a stop at 200 km / h (124 mph) faster than most cars can reach half that speed. The clip doesn’t offer specific timing during this acceleration race, but our chair stopwatch technique returned a 0-100 km / h (0-62 mph) time of 2.3 seconds. The 200 km / h mark occurred in just 6.5 seconds. Both statistics are faster than the official Ferrari claim of 2.5 seconds and 6.7 seconds, respectively.

It should be noted that our times are not scientific in any way. For that matter, any The mechanical timing of this car will be extremely difficult because, well, just look at the speedometer. With all-wheel drive gripping the pavement and the launch control system that uses power to its fullest, speed clicks upward at an amazing rate. The SF90 Stradale is the most powerful road Ferrari ever, and it’s fast enough to fend off any production car that money can buy.

And lest we forget, this Prancing Horse also works with a measure of efficiency. With two electric motors driving the front wheels, this plug-in hybrid can run on pure electricity at speeds of up to 84 mph and a distance of 15 miles. A third electric motor between the engine and transmission brings the combined electric power to 217 hp.

That leaves the SF90’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 to make up the difference. It produces 769 hp the old-fashioned way, singing a high-speed Italian V8 tune that would make Enzo proud.
