Someone Has Finally Drag Tested the Ferrari SF90
Maranello’s new hybrid supercar has pace you wouldn’t believeby Kirby Garlitos, on LISTEN 01:45
The Ferrari SF90 Stradale puts a lot of supercars in their place with its blistering pace, but the quickness that it can to go from point A to point B is something that a lot of people have to see for themselves.
Brooks Weisblat from Dragtimes provided that opportunity when he got a chance to drive an SF90 in the streets of Puerto Rico. That’s where Ferrari’s new hybrid-supercar proved its worth, clocking a 0-to-60-mph time of just 2.35 seconds and hitting a quarter-mile in 9.62 seconds at 146 mph.
The Ferrari SF90 Stradale is a hybrid beast. It’s powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine that produces 769 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. Two electric motors mounted at the front and the rear add another 217 horsepower into the mix, bringing the total output to a whopping 986 horsepower. All that power goes to all four wheels courtesy of an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Weibslat went to Puerto Rico to give the SF90 Stradale a proper road shakedown, and when it came to straight-line speed, the SF90 turned in one impressive time after another, none more showstopping than posting a 0-to-60-mph time of under 2.4 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 9.62 seconds at speeds of 146 mph.
The video runs for more than 15 minutes, and you’re going to have to jump ahead to the 9:30 part to see how the SF90 did in a speed test on the streets of Puerto Rico. It’s must-see viewing for those who want to know what the hybrid supercar is capable of.
