"Mama Mia. A new Ferrari? That's like Ramaphosa's new cabinet, except lighter, more exciting and a million times more capable of doing things."
Well call me Enzo and cook me som'a pasta - the Italians are at it again and this time it's even more brilliant than the last. Is that even possible? It sure is brother.
Introducing the Ferrari SF90 Stradale and the most ugly-fast Ferrari since the Maranello, and the first ever series production plug-in hybrid from the most elite Italian horse you've loved since you were a kid.
Mama Mia. A new Ferrari? That's like Ramaphosa's new cabinet, except lighter, more exciting and a million times more capable of doing things.
Indeed, even the exhaust manifold of the Stradale is made of Inconel instead of steel, which is something that isn't steel (we have no idea what it is), but it sure as hell makes for some exciting braai-talk.
Much like the stats - check this out: 0-100km/h in 2.5 seconds. 0-200km/h in 6.9 and a top speed of 212mph, which when written in km/h is rather fast. Go on, Google it.
Then, this: Its Immense V8 - all 3.99-litres of it - boasts an output out of this world. Jip, 573kW is rather brave. But, monumentally stupid when you learn about the three electric motors that ups the Stradale's power output up to some 735kW, which is just plain ballsy. Ballsy indeed!
What you get then is this: The most aerodynamically efficient Ferrari ever built and "enough juice in peak power mode to lap any circuit in the world, including the Nürburgring." AKA - this thing gives carrots my boet!
But, with a face resembling the new Toyota Supra, it's not the prettiest thing you'll ever see. Sure, on the Supra, a Supra face is just fine, but this here is a R7.5-million Ferrari son.
And for that, we shall sulk.
Sulk, sulk, sulk.
But you wouldn't say no, would you? Neither would we.
