The Ferrari SF90 Stradale Assetto Fiorano established the lap record for a production car on the 3.925 km of the Indianapolis Circuit, recording an impressive lap time of 1: 29.625 seconds and reaching a top speed of 281 km / h.
The most powerful Ferrari
The Ferrari SF90 Stradale is the most powerful car ever of the Prancing Horse and it is his primo veicolo Phev (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) as standard that guarantees 25 km of autonomy in 100% electric mode. A model with extreme characteristics, which represents a real change of paradigm because it offers unprecedented performance, never seen on a production car. His 1.000 cv, a weight / power ratio of 1.57 kg / hp and 390 kg of downforce at 250 km / h, all numbers that place the SF90 Stradale at the top of its segment and also show how, for the first time ever in the history of the brand, it is a V8 to be the top model of the range.
The sportier version: the Assetto Fiorano
There are two versions of the hybrid on plug Ferrari, the SF90 Street and a version that further accentuates the car’s strong sporting vocation. L’Fiorano set-up includes significant upgrades, including special Multimatic shock absorbers that derive from the world of GT racing, lightness at the highest levels thanks to high-performance materials such as carbon fiber (door panels, underbody) and titanium (springs, entire exhaust line) that lighten the car by 30 kg. Another difference is the high downforce carbon fiber rear spoiler which generates 390 kg of downforce at 250 km / h. The Assetto Fiorano can be ordered with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2R tires specifically designed to improve dry track performance, as was the case at Indy to set the lap record.
How is the American circuit
The Indianapolis Circuit was built in 1909 as a test bed for cars of all brands and since then we have remained faithful to that DNA. Whether it’s racing behind the wheel of purpose-built racing cars or setting new standards for production cars, the historic oval of 2.5 miles (3,925km) and IMS’s demanding roadway continue to be unparalleled catalysts for automotive development and performance. The decision to test the SF90 Stradale on this circuit is a tribute to 90 years of Scuderia Ferrari and emphasizes the fundamental role that motor sports play in the development of road cars. So it was quite natural to have the SF90 Stradale race on the track at the Indianapolis Circuit during the Ferrari Racing Days.
