Purist and hardcore Ferrari fans are scratching their heads because of this new performance marquee called SF90 Spider. SF in the model name is dedicated to the Scuderia Ferrari racing team and 90 indicates their 90th anniversary. Unlike other exclusive and limited edition Ferrari models like LaFerrari, the SF90 Spider is not a limited edition car but you still can’t wash it in the normal car wash facilities. So remember to take extra care of that 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine married with three electric motors which give a net output close to 1000 horsepower. The Ferrari SF90 Spider has ample upholstery and exterior paint options, there are multiple wheel designs, and you can upgrade SF90 Spider with various titanium and carbon fiber components. You can also select the colored special stitching. Therefore, you get a high degree of freedom to customize this beautiful car with a beautiful silhouette.

Overall Rating


There are very few cuppy spaces inside to store your stuff but remember, the main focus of the car is speed plus thrill and not exactly practicality. The entire car has carbon fiber inside out and every inch of the car is screaming nothing but performance and performance. There are no direct competitors of the Ferrari SF90 Spider Plug-in Hybrid as Ferrari has literally started a new segment and SF90 Spider with its open-air design, and its blood sibling SF90 Stradale has become the caviar of the sports car segment. Even though there are no opponents with the pure electric Plug-in Hybrid system and a competitive price tag, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ roadster, the McLaren 720 S Performance Spider, and the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante are still worthy rivals to have a comparison with.

2022 Ferrari SF90 plug-in hybrid Spider Features

Unlike traditional sports cars, the Ferrari SF90 Spider is techy and filled with touch screens, unlike the old Ferrari models. The main attraction is the 16-inch HD screen behind the steering wheel. You also get a 6-speaker sound system, navigation system with voice control, electric door opening, power-adjustable tilt-and-telescoping steering column, heated power outside mirrors, automatic climate control, and a rear-view camera. Assetto Fiorano package makes the SF90 Spider more sporty and athletic by adding carbon fiber rear spoiler, Multimatic shock absorbers, more carbon fiber, and titanium elements, two-tone exterior, and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires.

2022 Ferrari SF90 plug-in hybrid Spider Engine and Performance

7.0/10

The Ferrari SF90 Spider gets power from a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine which alone can produce 769 horsepower but this engine is connected with three electric motors. 

Between the engine and the eight-speed dual-clutch transaxle is a single electric motor and the other two e-motors are installed at the front axle. With this hybrid setup, SF90 produces a net output of 986 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. Ferrari has given a smart AWD drivetrain to the SF90 Spider and transmission duties are done by the 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. That said, in the purely electric mode, SF90 Spider can go up to 83 mph. 

The Ferrari SF90 Spider has an engine sitting very low into the car in order to lower the center of gravity which provides stability. One of the best things driving about the SF9 Spider is the insane precision of the steering wheel. Despite it being a Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle, you won’t be disappointed by its sound. It growls like a lion on the hunt. Even though handling is extremely sharp, the ride is on the harsher side compared to the Ferrari F8. When you put the Spider in the hybrid model, the tachometer vanishes from the LCD screen. That said, even though the rear window looks extremely small from the outside, it does offer a decent amount of visibility.

Sometimes the power figures do not translate into the real performance but that’s not the case with SF90 Spider. With such massive engine output, it reaches 60 mph from a standstill in approximately 2.5 seconds and covers the quarter-mile distance in just 9.9 seconds. Meanwhile, the rival from the McLaren is not much behind in terms of acceleration as it does the 0-60 mph 0.3 seconds later than the SF90 Spider. The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ roadster crosses the 0-60mph limit 0.1 seconds faster than the McLaren 720 S Performance Spider. Finally the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante splints from the state of rest to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and covers one fourth mile distance in 11 seconds which makes it the slowest in the competition. 

2022 Ferrari SF90 plug-in hybrid Spider Fuel Economy

7.0/10

There is no official EPA fuel economy data available for the 2022 Ferrari SF90 Spider. However, data for the 2021 Ferrari SF90 Stradale is available and since both models share the same Plug-in Hybrid powertrain, we can have a rough idea about the fuel economy of the SF90 Spider if not accurate since various other factors other than engine performance also plays a crucial role in determining the fuel economy. As per EPA estimates, Stradale gives 18 MPG combined and 51 MPGe combined. We also have test data from the car and driver which estimates the approximate fuel economy to be 20 MPG in the city, 24 MPG on the highway, and 22 MPG combined. That said, SF90 Spider has a pure electric range of 15 miles.

Based on the fuel economy data, the McLaren 720 S Performance Spider comes out as the most fuel-efficient car in the segment which is followed by the rival from the Ashton Martin. McLaren has one MPG more in the city and combined as compared to the Ashton Martin. Meanwhile, the least fuel-efficient sports car in the competition is the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ roadster but it has the biggest fuel tank while the smallest one is offered on the Ferrari SF90 Spider. 

2022 Ferrari SF90 plug-in hybrid Spider Interior

6.0/10

A cabin filled with nothing but carbon fiber, leather paddings, and other high-quality material. It might not be the most comfortable cabin against the rivals but it is comfier than the LaFerrari. However, if you want an extremely pampered and lavish cabin then go across the street and buy a Rolls Royce. You get carbon fiber sport seats with power adjustment and Alcantara perforated inserts. Below your feet, you will find Alacantara floor mats. The amount of carbon fiber used is showing how far Ferrari wants to go to increase the performance by using lightweight material. That said, the overall design has a minimalistic approach. The entire cabin is void of buttons. Everyone can’t help but wonder about the stick-less gear shifter which has been swapped with sliding gear switches. Touch buttons and small touchscreens are throughout the cabin.

Want climate control, here you go on the touch screen. Wish to control outside mirrors and headlights, no problems here are touch buttons and pad over the left side of the steering wheel, you also want to see how the driver is doing and follow the navigational route, no fret look at this small rectangular touchscreen. The steering wheel also has touch-sensitive buttons to change the drive modes and to control other things including one for ignition. There is no glove box given inside and there are very few places you can use to store some stuff such as little space below the center console, nettings on the door panels, and there is only one cup holder given, well good luck with your date from Starbucks then to fight over that one cup spot.

It is right behind the steering wheel in the driver’s field of vision and displays every kind of information about the car. You also get a small touch screen which has settings for radio and navigation for the passenger. SF90 Spider also has features such as a 6-speaker sound system, Bluetooth, real-time traffic, and Apple CarPlay. Sadly, there is no Android Auto integration given.

2022 Ferrari SF90 plug-in hybrid Spider Exterior

8.0/10

The Ferrari SF90 Spider is an open-top Ferrari which is basically a retractable hardtop variant or a convertible version of the Stradale which is a coupe. The exterior styling of both cars is nearly the same. The SF90 Spider’s retractable hardtop can be lowered in just 14 seconds. As per Ferrari, the hardtop system is lighter than the conventional retractable hardtop system. If we look at the side profile, it looks more like a Ferrari 458 that has been put on bulk and then cut diet. The Michelin tires promise to stick to the ground. 

The wheels are designed to work like a fan which sucks in all air and channel is along the rest of the car. There are carbon fiber air intakes on the side on the rear side. If you look at the front you will not help yourself but notice that c-shaped like sleek headlights are being shy because the hood is designed in such a way that it lets air in front from the funnel and let it pass over the car. A carbon fiber front splitter is also given at the front. On the backside, there is a titanium dual-exhaust system, suspended rear wing, and taillights which are neither round nor rectangular. 

There is a transparent carbon fiber cover given over the engine which is not just for aesthetics as it also helps the engine cool down by letting the hot air out. Two-zone bodywork is optional. Anchor-shaped grey paint livery is something that is a heritage and offered if you take the Assetto Fiorano package. 20-inch carbon fiber wheels allow SF90 Spider to run so fast, it looks as it has been melted along with the air. That said, the weight of the car gets further reduced by nearly 46 lb if you opt for the Assetto Fiorano package. Additionally, Giallo Montecarlo and Giallo Modena exterior paints are one of the main highlights of the SF90 Spider.

8.0/10

Expensive and high-end luxury or sports cars don’t usually get tested by either National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Therefore, no safety ratings are available for either the 2022 or 2021 Ferrari SF90 Spider. Coming to the safety features, sports cars are not typically famous for the number of safety features they provide but you will still get a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, seat belt warning, anti-lock braking system, and electronic side slip control.

  • Rearview camera
  • Rear parking sensors 
  • Advanced front driving camera (optional)

2022 Ferrari SF90 Spider vs 2021 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ roadster

Out of all the given rivals, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster is the only one that does not have a turbocharger. In terms of net engine output, Lamborghini is behind by 227 hp and 60 lb-ft of torque. But when it comes to acceleration, there is just a difference of two milliseconds. Furthermore, the Aventador SVJ roadster has a bigger fuel tank and larger wheelbase compared to the SF90 Spider. 

2022 Ferrari SF90 Spider vs 2021 McLaren 720 S Performance Spider

In contrast to the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ roadster, the McLaren 720 S Performance Spider has less difference in terms of torque when compared with the SF90 Spider. However, the McLaren offers a more spacious trunk. Moreover, the 720 S Performance Spider not only has impressive fuel economy figures but also has slightly more fuel storage capacity. That said, even though McLaren 720 S Performance Spider falls short in length, it tries to counter it with a larger wheelbase. 

2022 Ferrari SF90 Spider vs 2021 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante 

The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante might have lost if we put it against the Ferrari SF90 Spider on the performance criteria but as far as interior space, fuel tank capacity, and wheelbase is concerned it has the lead. But Aston Martin has made the DBS Superleggera Volante heavier in comparison to the Ferrari SF90 Spider.

2022 Ferrari SF90 plug-in hybrid Spider Final Verdict

Spine shivering performance, heart-throbbing design, well-crafted interior, exceptional handling capabilities, and rich meaning behind the model name, you might think that there are no flaws in the Ferrari SF90 Spider but there are. Well, if you are a true Ferrari patriot then you might be willing to ignore its harsh ride, limited cargo, and smaller fuel tank. It is true that rivals have the edge when it comes to these factors but what they don’t have is the Plug-in Hybrid heart of the SF90 Spider which makes it special on its own. Therefore, we suggest that you don’t wait on stocking the dollar bills for this magnificent piece of art.
