Perfectly orchestrated and introduced during the Formula One weekend in Abu Dhabi, the all-new Ferrari SF90 Stradale races into the UAE. Along with its drop-dead gorgeous design, the latest addition to the brand’s line-up brings unprecedented levels of performance with 986 horsepower and a mindboggling 390kg of downforce at 250 km/h.
For those attempting to decipher its name, the SF90 Stradale encapsulates the true significance of all that has been achieved in terms of performance. The reference to the 90th anniversary of the foundation of Scuderia Ferrari underscores the strong link that has always existed between Ferrari’s track and road cars.
Powering the beautiful Italian masterpiece is a V8 turbo engine capable of producing 796 horsepower (the highest power output of any 8-cylinder in the brand’s history) while the remaining 217 horsepower is delivered by three electric motors with one located on the rear axle and two on the front axle.

For the first time on a Ferrari, customers can choose between the standard car and a version with a more sports-oriented specification. The Assetto Fiorano specification includes significant upgrades, including special GT racing-derived Multimatic shock absorbers, extra lightweight features made from high-performance materials such as carbon-fibre (door panels, underbody) and titanium (springs, entire exhaust line), resulting in a weight-saving of 30kg.
Breaking more boundaries and setting new benchmarks for the Italian marque, the SF90 Stradale is also the first Ferrari sports car to be equipped with 4WD, a step necessary to allow the incredible power unleashed by the hybrid powertrain to be fully exploited, rocketing it from 0-100km/h in 2.5 sec and 0-200km/h in just 6.7 seconds.
