ferrari debuts SF90 XX stradale, its first racetrack hypercar that can be driven on roads

Ferrari SF90 XX Stradale hits the road

 

Ferrari has unveiled SF90 XX Stradale, its first-ever racetrack hypercar from the XX series that can be driven on roads and streets. The road-legal Ferrari SF90 XX Stradale draws much of its design and performance from its sibling SF90 Stradale, but Ferrari tweaks its power and aerodynamics to further boost the hypercar for road use. The slimmer build and visible air vents come through as the initial allure of the hypercar.

 

To simply put it, the SF90 XX Stradale is a road-legal version of the SF90 Stradale supercar which features, among others, a fixed rear wing that enables better downforce at high speeds as it sprints on highways and city roads. Ferrari has brought out SF90 XX Stradale from its XX Program, a research and development section of the car company which aims to test features that will then be implemented in Ferrari production vehicles.

It might be safe to say that Ferrari SF90 XX Stradale is an extreme version of the SF90 Stradale designed for both the track and the road. It incorporates advanced aerodynamics and technology from Ferrari’s racing cars, thanks to the years of research that have taken place in the XX Program.

 

From the onset, SF90 XX Stradale’s design features a sleek and aggressive appearance, a slimmer build compared to its counterpart, with prominent and visible air intakes and vents. A standout feature that Ferrari wants to highlight at SF90 XX Stradale is its fixed rear wing which is a solution not seen on a street-legal Ferrari since the 1995 F50.

 

The shape of the rear wing was designed in a way that allows it to effectively control and interact with the airflow and pressure systems that occur around the wing.  Even the tail of the hypercar has been redesigned for better aerodynamic performance. Carbon-fiber elements are visible throughout the hypercar, and it also has unique wheel rims with aerodynamic profiles. Ferrari SF90 XX Stradale seamlessly combines racing-inspired design elements with the practicality of a road-legal vehicle.

Racing-inspired interior of Ferrari SF90 XX Stradale

 

The interior design of the Ferrari SF90 XX Stradale focuses on creating a racing-inspired cockpit while reducing weight. The door panels, tunnel, and mats underwent changes to simplify their shape and incorporate technical fabrics and carbon fiber.  The door panels continue the design theme of the SF90 Stradale, with concave sections converging on the dashboard and color contrast highlighting them. The three louvers in the middle zone resemble air vents on the wheel arch, creating a dynamic and sculptural effect.

 

The gear shift gate is now centrally located and positioned further forward than in the SF90 Stradale. A special racing seat was designed for the car, featuring a visible carbon-fiber tubular structure and cushion supports. The backrest rake mechanism is seamlessly integrated into the seat using elastic trim materials, providing adjustability while maintaining a seamless appearance. This design, along with the carbon-fiber structure, reduced the seat’s weight by 1.3 kilos compared to the SF90 Stradale’s single-piece seat.
