Ferrari’s SF90 XX Stradale Sets Record Lap at Fiorano Track
The Ferrari SF90 XX Stradale has established a new benchmark at the Fiorano Circuit in Italy, clocking a lap time of 1:17.309. This achievement positions it as the fastest Ferrari for road use to ever complete a lap on this exclusive testing track owned by the manufacturer.
Lap times at Fiorano, which Ferrari occasionally releases, are especially significant due to the absence of comparable data for rival models at this venue. Hence, these times are primarily valuable for comparing the performance of various Ferrari models.
The SF90 XX Stradale’s Exceptional Performance
Remarkably, the SF90 XX Stradale surpassed the time set by the standard SF90 Stradale by 1.4 seconds, a notable feat given Fiorano’s relatively short 1.9-mile circuit. This time also outpaces the LaFerrari’s record by over two seconds (1:19.70) and closely approaches the Ferrari 458 Challenge race car’s lap of 1:16.50.
Enhanced Features and Specifications
The record-setting time was achieved with the SF90 XX Stradale fitted with carbon-fiber wheels and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R semi-slick tires, under the expert handling of Raffaele de Simone, Ferrari’s chief test driver.
Unveiled in June alongside the open-top SF90 XX Spider variant, these vehicles echo the extreme characteristics of Ferrari’s XX experimental cars while maintaining street legality. Key enhancements include increased power output and significant aerodynamic improvements. The peak power reaches 1,016 hp, facilitating a 0-62 mph acceleration in 2.3 seconds and a top speed of 199 mph.
Limited Production and Future Prospects
Ferrari plans a limited production run of 799 coupes and 599 convertibles, with both models reportedly already sold out. The SF90 XX Stradale and SF90 XX Spider are considered to be among the final iterations in the SF90 supercar series. With the SF90 Stradale having been in production since 2019 and considering Ferrari’s typical five-year model lifecycle, a successor is anticipated within the next 12-18 months, with early prototype testing already underway.
