Spy shots reveal Ferrari’s SF90 track edition is challenging all supercar norms

Ferrari is no stranger to pushing the boundaries with its special edition models, and the upcoming track-focused version of the SF90 supercar is no exception. Recent spy shots reveal the development of a highly potent variant, boasting aggressive new bodywork that hints at its exceptional performance.

The front end of the car resembles previous spy shots of the SF90 Versione Speciale, featuring a large front splitter designed to enhance downforce and improve cooling.

Additionally, new air vents positioned above the front bumper, along with redesigned side skirts and engine air ducts, contribute to a comprehensive aerodynamic upgrade.

At the rear, the most significant change is the addition of a massive static wing, which will work in conjunction with the new rear bumper and a more aggressive diffuser.

These elements will complement the existing active aero components in the SF90’s rear diffuser and floor. While the twin exhaust tips appear unchanged from the standard SF90, they are likely connected to an updated powertrain.

It is expected that Ferrari will retain the hybridized, twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine from the SF90, coupled with three electric motors to provide four-wheel drive.

While the total power output of 986 horsepower may or may not be increased, it is highly likely that the car’s software will receive calibration updates, incorporating lessons learned from the 296 GTB. Ferrari will also recalibrate the front axle’s torque vectoring system to accommodate the additional downforce generated by the enhanced body.

To optimize the power onboard, this track-focused model will implement further weight reduction measures. Taking cues from previous special edition track-focused Ferraris like the Pista and 812 Competizione, the car is likely to feature a stripped-back interior with fixed carbon bucket seats, reducing overall weight.

While Ferrari’s plans for integrating this hardcore SF90 variant into its existing lineup remain undisclosed, the full reveal of the car shouldn’t be far off.

Considering the extensive development of Ferrari’s first series production hybrid supercar, prices for the track-focused SF90 VS are expected to far exceed the standard SF90’s approximate £380,000 price tag.

Enthusiasts eagerly anticipate the unveiling of this exceptional machine, poised to deliver unparalleled performance and exclusivity.
