First hybrid with retractable hard top in the Ferrari range and delivers unparalleled en plein air exhilaration
Naza Italia, Official Importer and Distributor of the Ferrari brand in Malaysia, has introduced the spider version of the SF90 Stradale, the SF90 Spider. Ferrari’s first retractable hard top hybrid was unveiled to Malaysians in a digital debut.
As the Prancing Horse’s first production plug-in hybrid spider, the SF90 Spider sets new performance and innovation benchmarks not only for the marque’s range, but for the entire sports car sector.
The new convertible has the same extreme supercar specification and record-breaking performance as the SF90 Stradale yet also adds greater driving pleasure and versatility to the mix, thanks to latest iteration of Ferrari’s signature retractable hard top architecture.
This makes the SF90 Spider the ideal car for owners that demand the very pinnacle of Ferrari technology, but still want the thrill of open-top driving.
“The Ferrari SF90 Spider, like the SF90 Stradale it’s designed after, is a dynamic performer and whilst it retains the overall look and feel of its successor, the spider version further impresses with new stylistic, aerodynamic and technical features that set new benchmarks for performance, innovation and quality of drive for extreme supercars.
We know it will offer our clients’ an incredibly rewarding driving experience which fulfils their automotive desires and we are thrilled to present this to the local market,“ said Dato’ Nik Hamdam Nik Hassan, Group CEO, Automotive Group, Naza Corporation Holdings Sdn Bhd.
The retractable hard top (RHT) was again adopted because it guarantees optimal noise insulation and protection from the elements when raised, does not deform at high speeds and provides exceptional occupant space and comfort.
The RHT is so compact, simple and light it can be actioned in just 14 seconds and can be deployed when the car is on the move.
The key to the success of the Ferrari RHT, which premiered on the 458 Spider in 2011, and which has been constantly evolved in the intervening years, is that it takes up just 100 litres of space rather than the 150-200 litres required by a traditional system.
The use of aluminium in its construction also means that it is around 40 kg lighter than a conventional retractable hard top. An adjustable electric rear window guarantees superb occupant comfort even at high speeds when the RHT is lowered.
As is the case with the SF90 Stradale, the SF90 Spider is also available with an additional specification option for owners that want to push its track car vocation to the extreme.
The Assetto Fiorano pack includes a list of exclusive upgrades that set it apart from the standard car, not least Multimatic shock absorbers derived from the Ferrari’s GT racing experience and optimised for track use.
Others include the adoption of high-performance materials (such as carbon-fibre and titanium) that have shaved 21 kg off the car’s weight, a carbon-fibre rear spoiler and road-homologated Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres designed to improve track performance in the dry, thanks to a softer compound and fewer grooves.
Lastly, the Assetto Fiorano offers an optional two-tone livery that further underscores the car’s racing vocation.
The Ferrari SF90 Spider is available from the base price of RM 2,088,000 (before duties, customization options, taxes and insurance). For further details, contact the Ferrari Malaysia Showroom.
