Ferrari SF90 Stradale
Last year, Ferrari introduced its first PHEV (plug-in hybrid vehicle) in the form of its latest flagship hypercar. The hybrid powertrain is built around the familiar 4.0-litre, turbocharged V8 engine also found in the 488 GTB, which has been tuned to produce a whopping 769bhp. Supplementing the internal combustion engine are three e-motors delivering a combined 217bhp, which takes the total output to 986bhp. The hybrid powertrain also gives the SF90 Stradale all-wheel drive and the capability to deploy torque vectoring. Ferrari claims, the hybrid hypercar can do the 0-100kmph sprint in just 2.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 340kmph. In terms of aesthetics, the flagship gets futuristic-looking design elements, which include the slim headlights and taillights, and the clever aero package. It produces 390kg of downforce at 250kmph. Despite being a ‘regular’ series production car, Ferrari says the SF90 Stradale will gap the LaFerrari by 64 metres a lap around the Fiorano Circuit.
Aston Martin Valkyrie
The limited-production hybrid hypercar is a collaborative effort by Aston Martin, Red Bull Racing, and several other manufacturers. The track-oriented hypercar is being touted as the fastest street-legal car. Powering it is Aston Martin’s 6.5-litre naturally-aspirated V12 engine that makes 1000hp, which is supplemented by a Rimac-built hybrid battery system that adds another 160hp to it.
Porsche 918 Spyder
The 918 Spyder is a limited-production hybrid sports car by Porsche that was unveiled at 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. It is powered by a 4.6-litre naturally-aspirated V8 that produces 599hp and two electric motors delivering an additional 282hp. It also became the first series-production street-legal car to break the 7-minute barrier at the Nurburgring circuit.
The P1 was McLaren’s answer to the LaFerrari and Porsche 918 Spyder. Debuting at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, the hybrid hypercar is widely considered as the legendary McLaren F1’s successor. It is powered by a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 producing 727hp and an in-house-developed electric motor adding another 177hp.
