The SF90 flips its lid and sets a new high-water mark for horsepower.
Since its launch late last year, the 812 GTS has held the title of the world’s most powerful convertible. But it turns out 800 horsepower only goes so far inside the halls of Maranello—in mid-November, Ferrari unveiled the 1,000-hp SF90 Spider.
Like the 812 GTS (and F8 Spider), the SF90 Spider receives a two-piece retractable hard top that folds down atop the rear deck in 14 seconds, leaving behind a pair of buttress joined by a glass window that serves as a windblocker or can be lowered for the full free-air experience. The SF90’s aluminum chassis receives extra bracing to accomodate the removal of its original fixed roof, contributing to a 220-pound increase in dry weight. But with its 1,000 ponies, the 3,681-lb. SF90 Spider still offers a better power-to-weight ratio than a 488 Pista—and that’s far from the only trick in its performance arsenal.
