It's probably only a matter of time before Ferrari unleashes a convertible version of the SF90 Stradale.
Ferrari rocked the auto industry with the unveiling of the SF90 Stradale. Ferrari’s second hybrid supercar is also its most powerful road car to date, with a combined output of 986 horsepower coming from a mid-mounted 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 and three electric motors, with two on the front axle and one located between the V8 and the eight-speed DCT. Once again, Ferrari has set the new standard for its competitors to beat.
So far, Ferrari has only shown off the SF90 Stradale as a coupe. Inevitably, it hasn’t taken long for a render artist to imagine what it would look like in another body style. This render designed by Aksyonov Nikita shows what Ferrari’s new hybrid supercar looks like with its roof chopped off to create an SF90 Stradale Spider. And it arguably looks even better than its coupe counterpart. It’s just a shame the artist hasn’t provided a profile shot of the Ferrari SF90 Stradale with its roof down.
While the Spider version would adopt the same 986-hp setup as its fixed-roof sibling, the extra reinforcement required inevitably make it heavier than the coupe, which has a dry weight of 3,461 pounds. As a result, the Spider variant would likely be slightly slower off the line compared to the coupe, which takes just 2.5 seconds to do the 0-62 mph sprint. Top speed would also be reduced from the coupe’s 211 mph. Nevertheless, it would still be one of the fastest convertibles on the market.
Will this hypothetical Ferrari SF90 Stradale ever enter production? Ferrari hasn’t made any official announcements but never say never. After all, Ferrari made a roadster version of the LaFerrari called the Aperta built to celebrate the company's 70th anniversary and limited to only 210 examples costing over $2 million each. Rumors also suggest Ferrari is cooking up a convertible version of the 812 Superfast and it’s probably only a matter of time before the Ferrari F8 Tributo gets the Spider treatment.
