New 2023 Ferrari SF90 Stradale Spied Testing

Ferrari introduced the SF90 Stradale in May 2019, followed by the SF90 Spider in November 2020. A partially camouflaged prototype of the coupe was spotted testing in May of this year, hinting at a refresh for the plug-in hybrid Prancing Horse. It’s been photographed several times since then, and now car paparazzi have spotted another vehicle wearing what appears to be the full production body.

The adjacent spy shots give the impression that the test vehicle has a longer body, implying that the SF90 will undergo significant changes. Unless the disguise is playing tricks on us, Ferrari appears to be following the longtail recipe used by McLaren and Pagani, judging by the slightly stretched rear end. Significant changes are planned for the front, where the fabric material will conceal a redesigned nose with aero and cooling tweaks.

Ferrari rarely discusses future products, so we’ll have to wait until the official unveiling to learn about any potential changes to the powertrain. The SF90 Stradale already packs a punch, with 986 horsepower available from a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine and three electric motors. However, we won’t be surprised if its combined output exceeds 1,000 horsepower for the “Versione Speciale” seen here.

The Italian team has downsized the plug-in hybrid recipe since launching the SF90 three and a half years ago to accommodate a V6 for the 296 GTB / Spider. A six-cylinder mill is also used in the recently introduced 499P Le Mans Hypercar prototype. The SF90 VS, or whatever it will be called, will almost certainly keep its V8.

According to a recently spotted prototype with a large rear wing, the updated Stradale could spawn a new track-only derivative. Ferrari is expected to unveil the updated SF90 sometime next year, with a potential LaFerrari replacement expected in 2024. These are just two of the 15 cars set to be released by 2026, with an all-electric model due a year earlier.
