The Ferrari SF90 Stradale is a mid-engine PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) supercar which shares its name with the 2019 SF90 Formula One car, with the name standing for the 90th anniversary of the Scuderia Ferrari racing team and "Stradale" meaning for road.

The SF90 Stradale is equipped with three electric motors, adding a combined output of 220 PS (162 kW; 217 bhp) to a twin-turbocharged V8 engine rated at a power output of 780 PS (574 kW; 769 hp) at 7,500 rpm. The car is rated at a total output of 1,000 PS (735 kW; 986 hp) at 8,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 800 N⋅m (590 lb⋅ft) at 6,000 rpm.
The engine is an evolution of the unit found in the 488 Pista and the upcoming F8 Tributo models. The engine's capacity has been increased to 4.0 L (3,990 cc) and the bore has also been increased to 88 mm (3.46 in). The intake and exhaust of the engine have been completely modified. The cylinder heads of the engine are now narrower and the all-new central fuel injectors run at a pressure of 350 bar (5,100 psi). The assembly for the turbochargers is lower than that of the exhaust system and the engine sits 50 mm (2.0 in) lower in the chassis than the other mid-engine V8 models in order to maintain a lower centre of gravity. The engine utilises a smaller flywheels and an inconel exhaust manifold.
The front wheels are powered by two electric motors (one for each wheel), providing torque vectoring. They also function as the reversing gear, as the main transmission (eight-speed dual-clutch) does not have a reversing gear.
The engine of the SF90 Stradale is mated to a new 8-speed dual-clutch transmission. The new transmission is 10 kg (22 lb) lighter and more compact than the existing 7-speed transmission used by the other offerings of the manufacturer partly due to the absence of a dedicated reverse gear since reversing is provided by the electric motors mounted on the front axle. The new transmission also has a 30% faster shift time (200 milliseconds).
The car's all-new chassis combines aluminium and carbon fibre to improve structural rigidity and provide a suitable platform for the car's hybrid system. The car has a total dry weight of 1,570 kg (3,461 lb) after combining the 270 kg (595 lb) weight of the electric system.
Ferrari states that the SF90 Stradale is capable of accelerating from a standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.5 seconds, and 0–200 km/h (124 mph) in 6.7 seconds and can attain a top speed of 340 km/h (211 mph).
The Ferrari SF90 Stradale was added in the Ferrari Season Update as a mid Class S car with the following rank statistics:
- Stock rank: 2,928 ( 60)
- rank: 3,124
- rank: 3,350 ( 25)
- rank: 3,587 ( 30)
- rank: 3,832 ( 35)
- rank: 4,117 ( 45)
- rank: 4,395 ( 55)
The SF90 Stradale has quick acceleration and good handling and nitro efficiency that comes at the expense of a low top speed. It can compete against other mid Class S cars like the W Motors Fenyr Supersport and the Zenvo TS1 GT Anniversary.
The SF90 Stradale's rank was buffed in the Italian Season Update but its nitro efficiency was nerfed as well.
The SF90 Stradale was only available during its Special Event.

The Ferrari SF90 Stradale's Special Event was available between November 13, 2020 and December 14, 2020.
The Ferrari SF90 Stradale was added in the 2020 Spring Update as a high-end Class A car with the following statistics:
At stock, the SF90 Stradale has good drifting, decent nitro efficiency, poor top speed, mediocre acceleration, and decent handling. It doesn't have any bad traits but also does not have any redeeming traits either.
The SF90 Stradale was initially only obtainable by reaching Tier 11 of its Festival. If viewed in the Tag Racing car selection menu, it showed a price of 18,000 when the option to buy out the car was unavailable.
As of the 2020 Halloween Update, the SF90 Stradale can be purchased for 2,450,000.
The SF90 Stradale could be obtained during its Festival Special between April 6-12, 2020 as a reward for claiming 10 spins. Players who already own the car would receive 3 Kit cards instead.
The SF90 Stradale is a reward for reaching Tier 1 with the Premium upgrade in the Nissan Leaf NISMO RC Festival. Players who already own the car would win 180,000 instead. It was also a reward for reaching Tier 1 with the Premium upgrade in the Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta Festival. Players who already own the car would win 7x Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta Kit instead.
