The auction, which began August 15 will run until August 22, intentionally aligning itself with the most highly-anticipated car events of the year, Monterey Car Week.
To celebrate the significant week and partnership, Sotheby’s Motorsport has selected one of Ferrari’s most significant models of recent, with the SF90 acting as a nod to 90-years of the brand’s motorsport lineage. The vehicle also represents the future of the brand, as it expresses a pinnacle in hybrid hypercar technology, via a powertrain that produces an impressive 1,000 hp.
Thanks to its Twin-Turbo 4.0L V8 Plug-in Hybrid engine, the SF90 boasts a 0 to 60 mph acceleration time of just 2.5 seconds. The particular example on offer from Sotheby’s Motorsport comes with just 300 miles on the odometer and is dressed in signature Rosso Corsa over a Nero leather interior.
“The 2022 Ferrari SF90 Spider that we’re offering without reserve for our inaugural online auction is truly a unique gem that is the perfect harmony of cutting-edge technology and timeless Italian design,” expressed Chip Perry, the CEO of Sotheby’s Motorsport, adding “This Ferrari is not only a blend of a sport, exotic, and luxury vehicle, but it’s also a car that mixes petrol and electricity to seamlessly create a performance V8 vehicle that provides extreme performance. For customers looking for a vehicle with the maximum technology, innovation, and aggressive design, this is the perfect supercar!”
That isn’t just talk from Perry either, the SF90 features a variety of features that allow it to live up to the hype, including a retractable aluminum hardtop, shift times that outpace its predecessor by 30% and a variety of drive modes including Qualify, which allows it to fully utilize its 1,000 hp.
Interested buyers will have the chance to see the SF90 in person during Monterey Car Week, where bids will open at $100,000 USD. For those unable to attend, you can see a walk around of the vehicle in the video below provided by Sotheby’s Motorsport.
