The world’s fastest roller coaster is the Formula Rossa at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, with a top speed of 149.1 mph, just 4 mph higher than is achieved by a product of Ferrari’s main business, the SF90 Assetto Fiorano, at the end of the quarter mile. The car, however, doesn’t stop pulling until it hits 211 mph. Knowing these numbers means, yes, we’ve strapped our test equipment to a 2021 Ferrari SF90 Stradale Assetto Fiorano, and it’s both the quickest hybrid and quickest gasoline-powered car we’ve ever tested.
Our test happened in the midst of its Corse Clienti rich-person racing program’s Ferrari Racing Days global meet at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (home of the Indianapolis 500 and previous Formula 1 events in the United States), where we were invited to document the performance of Ferrari’s current flagship and erstwhile successor to legends like the Enzo and LaFerrari. With 986 hp provided by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 and three electric motors (two front, one rear), the SF90 Stradale in its track-focused Assetto Fiorano guise (literally “Fiorano trim,” referring to the company’s private track in Maranello, Italy) is the most powerful and quickest Ferrari road car ever.
