On Thursday, the Italian luxury sports car manufacturer “Ferrari” launched the SF90 Spider, a convertible version of its SF90 Stradale hybrid to make 60 Percent sales from the hybrid technology by 2022.
The Amsterdam Netherlands- based new car will feature the same identifications as the 4WD SF90 Stradale unveiled last year, with a 780 horsepower 8-cylinder combustion engine consolidated with two front-mounted electric motors joining an extra 220 horse power, with the addition of retractable hardtop.
However, the Spider will be market priced at 473,000 euros (558,000 dollars) in Italy that is one hundred kilos heavier than the Stradale.
The first deliveries are contemplated in the second quarter (Q2) of the next year, in Europe and outpricing the 430,000 euro Stradale at the top of Ferrari’s cost range for series-production automobiles.
The Chief Commercial and Marketing Officer Enrico Galliera said “We consider the SF90 our range supercar and we don’t see any competitors on the market at the moment. He Said, adding the SF90 would also attract the owners of powerful V12 sports cars.
Moreover, the coronavirus (covid-19) pandemic has not slowed down the Ferrari’s ambitious plans to turn out new models, with the SF90 Spider coming two months after the Portofino M, a transformation of Ferrari’s top-selling grand tourer (GT).
Furthermore, a completely electric vehicle car, though, is not expected until after 2025, as the battery tech requires more development and the group needs to prepare buyers more used to roaring engines than a quiet drive.
Lastly, Camilleri said in an earnings call on Nov 3 that he did not see Ferrari ever being a 100 per cent electric car manufacturer and certainly not in my lifetime will it reach even 50 per cent.
