Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2024 Ferrari SF90 Versione Speciale

It should pack more power than the SF90 and deliver improved driving dynamics

LISTEN 02:40

Ferrari has been testing a hardcore version of the SF90 Stradale for about a month now - at least from what we know. The first prototype was caught testing back in May around Maranello, and it seems that the Italian company is now continuing its testing session at a much higher altitude. A prototype of the SF90 Versione Speciale and a very strange-looking mule of the Ferrari Daytona SP3 were caught testing in the Alps at an altitude of approximately 2500 meters.

What is very weird to us is that while the previous prototype was wearing very little camouflage, the one caught in the Alps is very well dressed. Ferrari just wanted to make sure we know this is a hybrid prototype – notice the yellow high-voltage stickers placed all over the body. However, even with the heavy camouflage, we can still spot a few design elements. First of all, the next SF90 VS will be a street-legal car and not track-focused like it was originally rumored. And second, it will feature a more aggressive design when compared to the standard SF90. The most obvious change is the S-duct hood - similar to what we have seen on the 488 Pista. The spy shots also reveal a lower and more prominent front splitter along with a slightly modified bumper.

There are no details on the powertrain just yet, but for sure it will be a hybrid model, just like the SF90. The standard model was Ferrari’s first plug-in hybrid model featuring a propulsion technology that combines three electric motors and a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine. The combustion engine produces 769 horsepower, while the trio of electric motors adds another 217 horsepower into the mix. The final figure is 986 horsepower - making it a little bit more powerful than the LaFerrari which delivered 949 horsepower. Power is routed to all four wheels via an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. Of course, we expect the VS version to offer a lot of tweaks to both the combined output and the overall driving dynamics. The sprint from 0 to 60 mph should be made in less than 2.5 seconds and top speed should be higher than 211 mph.

There are no words on the final output, but the SF delivers a combined 986 horsepower

Rumors suggest the new Ferrari SF90 Versione Speciale will be launched later this year, most likely sometime in September. It will be offered as a limited-edition model, so expect a higher price than the standard SF90 Stradale – which starts at $507,000.
