The Ambani family has already bought many luxury vehicles in the past month. Now, they have added a new super sports car to the garage, popularly known as Jio Garage. The latest addition is the Ferrari SF90 Stradale. The supercar was spotted by Viren Parikh and the pictures are shared on his Instagram.
We can see the Ferrari is finished in Rosso Corsa which translates to ‘Racing Red’. It is the historic colour of Ferrari in which all of their cars have been finished since the beginning. In the video, we can see that the supercar is parked and in one of the photos, we can see the Ferrari entering the garage.
The SF90 Stradale is the current flagship from Ferrari and is the most advanced Ferrari ever made. Despite being a flagship it is not powered by their legendary naturally aspirated V12 petrol engine. Instead, it comes with twin-turbocharged, 4.0-litre V8, which produces a max power output of 780 PS and is mated to three electric motors that produce 220 PS. So, the combined power output is 1000 PS making the SF90 Stradale, the most powerful Ferrari ever made.
It is capable of hitting 100 kmph in just 2.5 seconds and 200 kmph in just 6.7 seconds. The SF90’s top speed is a whopping 340 kmph. The engine is mated to an 8-speed Dual-Clutch automatic transmission. This transmission is 30 percent faster than the previous 7-speed Dual-Clutch unit while being 10 kgs lighter and more compact. Interestingly, the transmission does not have a reverse gear. Instead, the front two wheels are powered by two electric motors that function as a reverse gear while also providing torque vectoring.
The SF90 is the first Plug-in hybrid electric vehicle(PHEV) from Ferrari. Due to this, the supercar can run on electric power alone. The 7.9 kWh battery pack has a range capacity of 26 km. The electric motors function till 209 kmph after which the SF90 is a rear-wheel-drive car. But it still manages to put 1000 PS as the front motors are disengaged and the power is transferred to the third motor which sits on the rear axle.
The manufacturer is offering 4 driving modes which can be changed by the eManettino knob present on the steering wheel. First, there is the eDrive mode in which the car runs silently on electric motors. Yes! A Ferrari that runs on electric power only. Then there is the Hybrid mode in which the car runs on both electric power and the gasoline engine. In this, the computer turns off the engine while coasting or when the conditions are favourable. This helps in saving fuel and the engine also starts automatically. Then there is the Performance mode which keeps the engine running so that the car feels responsive every time. The Qualify mode is a new driving mode that has been added which puts the car into its high-performance mode. Ferrari is using brake-by-wire technology to combine disc braking and brake regeneration to recharge the battery under braking. In India, the Ferrari SF90 Stradale costs a whopping Rs. 7.50 Crores ex-showroom.
