Every time a person would think of sport cars, the first name that would come to his/her mind would be Ferrari; this is just how firmly this company has rooted itself in the world of speed and thrill. It is an Italian company that has produced cars since 1947. Although it has been recognized as an auto manufacturer since 1947 after the first Ferrari badged car was completed, the company traces its roots back to 1929 when Enzo Ferrari formed Scuderia Ferrari racing team. Ever since then, the company has produced some of the best sports cars all across the globe, such as, the Ferrari 250 GTO, the Ferrari 125s, the Ferrari 488 GTB and the Ferrari Stradale SF90.
Amongst all these outstanding sports cars, one of them is the Ferrari Stradale SF90. This model of Ferrari shares its name with the SF90 Formula One car, where “SF90” refers to the 90th anniversary of Scuderia Ferrari racing team, and “Stradale” refers to for road. It is a mid engine PHEV, meaning that the engine is behind the passenger compartment and is a Plug in Hybrid Electric Vehicle.

Ferrari Stradale has been designed by Centro Stile Ferrari under Flavio Manzoni, and has been equipped with a powerful 4.0L, twin turbocharged Ferrari F154CD V8 engine, giving it a sturdy horse power of 986hp and eDrive power of 120kW. Moreover, it comes with the new 8 speed dual clutch transmission, which makes use of two separate clutches for odd and even gear sets. This is a major leap in terms of transmission ease and efficiency as it has a 30% faster shift time, is lighter, and more compact as compared to the previously used 7 speed transmission.
This thoroughbred car comes with some very appealing interiors, which include a 16 inch curved display located behind the steering wheel, that will display various vital statistics of the Ferrari Stradale to the driver; capacitive touch interfaces on the steering wheel to control the various functions of the car; conventional levers and buttons; and a head up display that would reconfigure itself according to the selected driving mode.
Speaking of modes, the car comes with four driving modes depending on road conditions, which can be changed by the eManettino knob present on the steering wheel. The eDrive mode is where the car runs only on electric motors. The Hybrid mode is where the car runs on both, the internal combustion engine and the electric motors; this is also the car’s default mode. The Performance mode is where the engine keeps running in order to charge the batteries and ensure optimum performance of the car. The Qualify mode is where the powertrain is used to its full potential.

Moreover, Ferrari Stradale has been ranked as one of the top 3 cars that cost over 300,000 Dollars, and as one of the top 5 2-seater coupes.
