The first Ferrari SF90 XX Stradale is revealed in London

For the first time, we are witnessing a Ferrari SF90 XX Stradale delivered to a customer. It is the extreme variant of the SF90 Stradale. Keep reading if you want to learn more about this vehicle.

When the SF90 was introduced to the market a few years ago, some actually thought it was a replacement for the LaFerrari, which is, of course, nonsense. It is simply another, possibly more extreme, V8 variant with 1000 horsepower. That's about it. Times have changed. 1000 horsepower doesn't mean what it did in 2010. Over 10 years ago, only the most expensive and rarest hypercars had 1000 horsepower. Nowadays, with the latest electric motors, this is easily achievable. However, the Ferrari SF90 XX Stradale is in a slightly different league. According to Ferrari, it is supposed to be a complete XX vehicle that is road-legal. This has never been done before. Usually, XX vehicles were only built for the racetrack. Whether this is an upgrade or a downgrade is up for debate. Here on Autogespot, it is definitely an upgrade because we want to see the vehicles on the road, not just on the racetracks. And Ferrari is playing right into our hands, of course.

If you're not particularly familiar with the specific details of the SF90 XX yet, we've gathered the most important facts for you here:
Based on the SF90 Stradale, the new limited special series SF90 XX Stradale was introduced some time ago, along with its SF90 XX Spider counterpart. With production limited to just 799 and 599 units respectively, these new PHEVs with V8 engines represent the latest and most extreme example of a concept of special versions that elevate the performance of Ferrari's road models to a new level. A few months ago, test vehicles were discovered, and now deliveries are already beginning.
The concept of Ferrari's special versions has been refined over the past 20 years, and many of these models quickly became benchmarks in the Cavallino Rampante's product range, such as the 488 Pista and the 812 Competizione. Over the same two decades, Ferrari has also developed the XX program to offer an exclusive group of experienced customer drivers extreme cars that are not homologated for the road but can be driven to the limit on the racetrack. All models produced under the program have proven to be a great success, with the latest addition being the FXX-K EVO (based on the LaFerrari).
Drawing on its experience in both areas, Ferrari decided to develop a road-legal car that embodies the maximum expression of the technical concepts of both programs. The SF90 XX Stradale is based on the supercar in the series, the SF90 Stradale, and takes its already impressively exciting driving experience on the racetrack and to the limit to a new level. Performance is enhanced thanks to its impressive 1,030 horsepower (30 more than the SF90 Stradale), specific software logics, and the use of radically new aerodynamic solutions, including a fixed rear spoiler—the first to be used on a road-going Ferrari since the Ferrari F50—which provides an unprecedented downforce of 530 kg at 250 km/h.
