It looks magnificent, surprising no one.
Ferrari recently unveiled its new SF90 Spider, and we were not at all disappointed to set eyes on the first-ever production hybrid convertible from the automaker. It's a sensationally striking drop-top from just about any angle, and Ferrari design boss Flavio Manzoni for one seems pretty satisfied with the final result.
But it's always something special to see an exotic out in the wild, and one of the first videos of the SF90 Spider has just been published to the Varryx YouTube channel after the convertible was spotted on the streets of Maranello.
After a menacing black Portofino whizzes by the camera, we get a clear look at the SF90 Spider's beautiful lines and fetching gold paint - a color dubbed "Giallo Montecarlo," which is the same color that can be seen on the launch-spec model.. The example here had its roof up, but this in no way detracts from its glamorous proportions. Those distinctive buttresses look good from the back and seamlessly flow into the roof panel when it is erected. The driver in the video wasn't interested in revving the twin-turbo V8 to let us fully hear its exhaust note, but we don't need to hear it to know it will sound like a proper Ferrari.
The SF90 Spider generates its thrust with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 and an electric motor grouping, combining to deliver a stunning 986 horsepower to all four wheels. The sprint to 62 mph flies by in just 2.5 seconds, and the car boasts a rated top speed of 211 mph. By then, you'd hopefully have put the roof down.
Late in the video, the photographer manages to capture a new Ferrari Portofino M, which seems almost restrained compared to the SF90 Spider, although some will surely prefer its cleaner lines. It makes a comparatively meager 612 horsepower from a more conventional internal combustion powertrain. All the same, we'd be happy to park either of these beauties in our garage.
