This Is What A Ferrari Le Mans Hypercar Looks Like

Supercars / Comments

If the SF90 hypercar went racing, it would look something like this.

The Ferrari SF90 Stradale comes powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that works with three electric motors to put down a total of 986 horsepower. Ferrari says that it'll make 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds and top out at 211 mph. The Italian company is already working on another hypercar for 2022, but Ferrari said it won't be more powerful than the SF90.

As it stands, the SF90 is as close as you'll get to a street-legal Le Mans hypercar, but someone has already envisioned what an actual SF90 car competing in the 24-hour race would look like.

Italian designer Vito Possidente has rendered the SF90 with an approximation of the aerodynamics and stance the hypercar would use to race. It includes the fin on the rear bodywork to stop it rolling over in the air during a crash, as well as aero-discs to cover the wheels and help them slide through the air. The super-aggressive front and rear diffusers set it off, though, and it's not something anyone would like to see coming upon them in the rearview mirror during a race.

The hypercar class for Le Mans is a new one, and debuts in the 2020/2021 season with Toyota and Aston Martin already signed up to compete.

Ferrari is so far absent from the class, but other companyies, including Peugeot and Glickenhaus, also have hypercar race programs in motion. Interestingly, James Glickenhaus recently called out Ferrari on what he believes are subpar performance metrics for the SF90.

"Ferrari proudly boasts that their new plug-in hybrid can operate at full power for one lap at The Ring at full power of about 950HP weighing about 3400 LBS," Glickenhaus said, and that "Our SCG LMP1 plug in hybrid/KERS will be able to operate at full power of about 1000 HP, weighing about 2500 LBS for 24 hours at Le Mans…"
