Maranello, Italy. 19 November 2020 - The spider version of the SF90 Stradale, the SF90 Spider, was unveiled today during a dedicated digital event. This unique online event provided Ferraristi worldwide with an exclusive introduction to the car’s innovative features and in-depth information on its development.

As the Prancing Horse’s first production plug-in hybrid spider, the SF90 Spider sets new performance and innovation benchmarks for the marque’s range and the entire sports car sector. The new convertible has the same extreme supercar specification and record-breaking performance as the SF90 Stradale. It also adds further driving pleasure and versatility to the mix, thanks to the latest iteration of Ferrari’s signature retractable hardtop architecture. It makes the SF90 Spider the ideal car for owners that demand Ferrari technology’s very pinnacle but still want the thrill of open-top driving.

The retractable hardtop (RHT) guarantees optimal noise insulation and protection from the elements when raised, does not deform at high speeds, and provides exceptional occupant space and comfort. The RHT is so compact, simple, and light that it can be actioned in just 14 seconds and deployed when the car moves.


In a first for a Ferrari production spider, the SF90 Spider has plug-in hybrid architecture. The internal combustion engine is integrated with two electric motors at the front, comprising the RAC-e (Cornering Angle Regulator, Electric) system. The synergy between the internal combustion engine and the electric motors allow the car to unleash a maximum of 1,000 HP and put the SF90 Spider not only at the very top of the Ferrari range of road cars but also its category.

The SF90 Spider sports the completely redesigned 8-speed, oil-bath, dual-clutch gearbox launched on the SF90 Stradale.


To make full use of the powertrain unit’s power, the engineers developed vehicle dynamics systems that guarantee an improvement in terms of pure performance and lap times and simultaneously ensure that drivers of all kinds can fully enjoy the car’s potential and have fun behind the wheel.


Just as the SF90 Stradale redefined the Ferrari range’s aerodynamic performance levels, the SF90 Spider pushed the limits of the results delivered still further. The goals that drove the car’s aerodynamic development from the earliest stages of the platform design were threefold:



The crafting of the SF90 Spider’s exterior forms was inspired by the same principle as influenced the development of the SF90 Stradale: to create a futuristic, innovative design that communicates both the car’s racing vocation and the series production supercar concept.

The front of the car has a very pronounced profile, which underscores its aggressive character.

The rear of the car is dominated by high exhaust pipes, resulting from the optimization of the exhaust line layout.


The instrumentation is now predominantly digital, with all the screens going completely black when the car is not running, lending the cabin a very minimalist look. However, once the Engine Start button on the steering wheel gets pushed, a “ceremony” of sorts begins that sees all the digital components in the driver cockpit gradually springing to life until the whole cockpit is aglow.

The central instrument cluster comprises a single 16” HD screen, which is curved towards the driver to make it easier to read and emphasize the wraparound cockpit effect.

Thanks to the head-up display, the primary information is projected onto the windscreen section within the driver’s field of vision. It means less distraction in line with the “Eyes on the road, hands on the wheel.”

The SF90 Spider’s steering wheel completes that transfer process from the competition world and ushers in a new era by introducing a series of touch commands that allow the driver to control virtually every aspect of the car without ever taking their hands off the wheel. The traditional controls include the now-iconic Manettino, steering-wheel-mounted headlight control, windscreen wipers, indicators.


Ferrari’s unparalleled quality standards and increasing focus on client service underpin the extended seven-year maintenance program offered with the SF90 Spider. Available across the entire range, the program covers all regular maintenance for the first seven years of the car’s life.

Ferraris’s scheduled maintenance program is an exclusive service that allows clients the certainty that their car is at peak performance and enjoying safety over the years. This exceptional service is also available to owners of pre-owned Ferraris.

Regular maintenance (at intervals of either 20,000 km or once a year with no mileage restrictions), original spares, and meticulous checks by staff trained directly at the Ferrari Training Centre in Maranello using the most modern diagnostic tools are just some of the advantages of the Genuine Maintenance Programme. The service is available on all markets worldwide and from all Dealerships on the Official Dealership Network.
