The SF90 Spider, the Prancing Horse’s first standard PHEV spider, sets a new benchmark in terms of performance and innovation with respect to the Maranello-based range and the production of the entire automotive sector. The car inherits from the SF90 Stradale its extreme supercar-like setting and its record-breaking performance, succeeding in increasing its driving pleasure and usability thanks to the latest version of the RHT foldable rigid roof. The SF90 Spider is also equipped with the RHT (Retractable Hard Top) foldable rigid roof, a solution that allows excellent thermal and acoustic insulation in covered configuration, no deformation at high speeds and maximum habitability thanks to the double curvature.
The definition of the external forms of the SF90 Spider, created by the Ferrari style centre headed by Flavio Manzoni, follows the principle that guided the development of the SF90 Stradale, i.e. the creation of a futuristic and innovative design that conveys both the racing attitude of the car and the concept of a range supercar. The closed car, side, front and rear of the SF90 Spider respect the distinctive features of the SF90 Stradale, a non-trivial exercise considering that the architecture envisages the housing of a retractable roof moved by complex leverages and that it was imperative to maintain the chassis’ stiffness performance unchanged. The result was obtained by remodelling the surfaces to integrate the tonneau cover into the B-pillar of the SF90 Stradale, preserving its style theme.
The cabin and roof adopt styling solutions taken from the SF90 Stradale that maximise aerodynamic penetration and accentuate its sporty temperament without compromising on on-board comfort. The cabin has been moved forward, the roof is 20mm lower, the front pillars are slimmer and the curvature of the windscreen has been increased. The front is dominated by a pronounced nose which helps to highlight the car’s aggressive character; the three front air intakes are dedicated to cooling the electric cars (front) and the endothermic engine (side). The SF90 Spider adopts Matrix LED headlamp technology that improves visibility in all conditions thanks to active beam control. The rear is dominated by the high exhausts that derive from the optimised layout of the exhaust line, whose appeal to racing cars is stylistically exploited to enhance the racing character of the SF90 Spider.
The definition of the interior has been guided by the redesign of the HMI, which has made an epochal leap forward since the SF90 Stradale. The on-board instrumentation is almost entirely digital and when the car is switched off it is black, giving the cabin a minimalist look. By pressing the ‘Engine Start’ button on the steering wheel, a start ceremony involves all the components of the pilot station until the cockpit is switched on. The central cluster consists of a single high-definition 16″ digital screen, curved towards the driver to facilitate reading and emphasise the wraparound effect. In the default screen, everything is dominated by a large circular tachometer framed by the battery charge indicator, on either side of which the navigation and audio control screens are located. The large size of the screen allows great flexibility in customising the screens, which can be easily navigated using the steering wheel controls. For example, you can view the navigator map in full screen mode.
