According to what we know, Ferrari has been testing a tougher version of the SF90 Stradale for roughly a month. The first prototype was spotted testing in the Maranello area in May, and it appears that the Italian manufacturer is currently testing at a considerably greater altitude. At an altitude of roughly 2500 metres, a prototype of the SF90 Versione Speciale and a very strange-looking mule of the Ferrari Daytona SP3 were seen testing in the Alps.
We find it strange that, whereas the earlier prototype wore very little camouflage, the one caught in the Alps is well-dressed. The yellow high-voltage tags plastered all over the body are Ferrari’s way of letting us know this is a hybrid prototype. Despite the thick concealment, a few design features can still be seen. First and foremost, unlike previous rumours, the upcoming SF90 VS will be a street-legal car rather than a track-focused car. Second, compared to the ordinary SF90, it will have a more aggressive design. The S-duct hood, which is comparable to what we saw on the 488 Pista, is the most noticeable modification.
There are currently no information on the powertrain, although it will almost certainly be a hybrid, similar to the SF90. The standard model was Ferrari’s first plug-in hybrid, with three electric motors and a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine combining for propulsion. The combustion engine provides 769 horsepower, with a total of 217 horsepower coming from the three electric motors.

The ultimate figure is 986 horsepower, which is somewhat more potent than the 949 horsepower delivered by the LaFerrari. An eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission sends power to all four wheels. Of course, we anticipate a number of changes to the combined output as well as the overall driving characteristics in the VS version. The sprint from 0 to 60 mph should be made in less than 2.5 seconds and top speed should be higher than 211 mph.
The new Ferrari SF90 Versione Speciale is expected to be released later this year, most likely in September. Because it will be a limited-edition vehicle, expect it to cost more than the ordinary SF90 Stradale, which starts at $507,000.
