Ferrari preparing SF90 Versione Speciale for 2023

The Ferrari SF90 Stradale is already the fastest road car in history to lap the Fiorano test track, but Ferrari is set to push the performance envelope of its hybrid supercar even further with this: the SF90 Versione Speciale. Our spies have caught the new model testing in pre-production guise, sporting a drastically reworked aero package.

At the front, the Version Speciale will adopt an S-duct to channel air through the front bumper and out of the bonnet to generate downforce, similar to the Ferrari 488 Pista. Ferrari tends to adopt these subtly integrated aero solutions rather than large splitters and wings, and the Version Speciale will be no exception.

Even so, the car’s side profile is decidedly more muscular than the Stradale’s, thanks to deeply scalloped side skirts which appear to induce outwash around the rear wheels for cleaner airflow to the rear. The wheels themselves are the same as those fitted to the Stradale, although we expect the production car to arrive with lightweight carbon fibre items.

Heavy camouflage over the rear end indicates more modifications here, which will balance the increased downforce at the front of the Versione Speciale. A more vocal exhaust system will also allow the car’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 to sing.

As with the base car, the engine will be assisted by three electric motors, two driving the front wheels. A revised torque vectoring calibration could unlock more cornering performance from the setup, and the Versione Speciale will be equipped with even more focused chassis hardware than the current Assetto Fiorano pack-equipped SF90.

Given that the SF90’s behaviour relies heavily on its fiendishly complex electronics, Ferrari is likely to fine tune these to provide more cohesive handling, and more power could be on the cards to boost the car’s already explosive 986bhp output. A stripped back interior could also trim a few kilos from the kerbweight.
