    Celebrating 90 years of Ferrari’s Scuderia racing team, the Ferrari SF90 Stradale arrives with the most powerful V8 engine the Italian carmaker has ever produced as well as a trio of electric motors. Together, the 4.0-liter V8 sitting midship, two electric motor powering the front wheels and a MGUK motor that sits between the 769-hp V8 and eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, produce a whopping 986 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. As Ferrari’s first all-wheel-drive sports car (the GTC4Lusso is a grand touring wagon), the SF90 Stradale can sprint from 0-60 mph in 2.6 seconds, reach 125 mph in 6.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 211 mph.

    Now, if they could only get their 4x WDC F1 driver to pull his head out of his a$$....

    No “Stud or Dud” poll, that died with whatshisname...

    Uh yeah… that's amazing. Will this replace the "base" Ferrari model - the 488?

    My dream car has always been whatever the basic V8 model is. I'd take an Italia over the 488 though.

    If I come into a windfall I'm ordering a custom one. Was at the Plano, TX dealership last month and got a tour of the process. Quite fun!

    Butt ugly yet gorgeous at the same time. Makes you wonder what their next hyper car will be like if this everyday Ferrari has 1,000 HP.

    I love it, all the styling and tech of the era coming together.

    No, it will no replace the normal/base models as it's a 1000 HP hybrid combo so this thing is going to cost a ton of cash. But I can see the base models styling moving more in this direction.

    Different topic but I can't wait to see the Mid-Engine Corvette in two days!

    This is more in line with what some consumers can afford...

    So you USED to be interested... Did you grow or something? Subaru Outbacks have a lot of height room... ;)

    Who do you think they market their cars to, short stockbrokers or tall, wealthy pro ball players?
    My brother is 6’5” (I’m 5’10”, he got the height but I got the hair & looks) and he can fit into any new Ferrari.
    Problem is, he can’t afford any new Ferrari so the old ones are a bit challenging; he does fit into a 550 or 575 or 360 or 430 but the old 308s and Dino’s are a no-go.

    As someone else mentioned, that’s not a replacement for the 488, it’s a hyper car and meant to take on the Porsche 918 or Mercedes Project One or McLaren P1 replacement or....

    Haven't seen one of those yet and I see 488s everyday. Come to think of it, I haven't seen a 918 in a year or two. I wonder where they all went...

    Naah, it has much nicer lines than those BFugly Huracáns and Aventadors. Those things look like aborted versions of Transformers®...

    I agree. Still tons of performance but with every day kind of reliability ... not that anyone drives one every day.

    The one I have my eye on is the 8 cyl. front engine Daytona-looking model. They go for $75M-ish slightly used, which seems like a lot of car for the money and one that will hold its value very well. I think it's called the California somethingorother??

    Some day [said AC wistfiully :rolleyes:] ...
