Ferrari SF90 Stradale

The SF90 Stradale is the first-ever Ferrari to feature PHEV-Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle architecture. This is a system where the internal combustion engine is integrated with three electric motors, out of which two are independent, located on the front axle, and the third at the rear, between the gearbox and the engine. As an add-on, the car can be customized according to the client’s requirements – a standard version or a sports-oriented version. 

Now, how cool is that! The principal aim was to create a forward looking-innovative design. Deviating from the typical, the car’s tail is lowered and the rear screen’s profile no longer follows the line from the roof to the bumper. It comes at a base price of 1,000,000 US Dollars.

Ferrari Monza SP2

One of the ‘icona cars’ launched by Ferrari, it combines the timeless classic design with up-to-date technological achievements which makes super-high performance possible to the users. The design principle involves graceful forms and wing-profile forms of the bodyshell.

A windshield virtually is adopted into the aerodynamics of the car. Also, a virtual windshield, patented for this model, is adopted to minimize the effect of negative airflow.
