In the world of Formula 1 it is said that deep down "everyone is a Ferrari fan".

It is that the Italian brand is the only one that has been since the creation of the highest category and the one that has a range of dream sports cars.

But let

Max Verstappen

say it , who has just received one.

The two-time Formula 1 champion was discovered by a TikTok user who recorded the moment he was delivered a brand new coupe from the Maranello house, in

Rosso Fuoco

color .

It is an SF90 Stradale, the first plug-in hybrid model of the

Cavallino brand,

and the delivery included a unveiling like those that are made in car presentations and an explanation of the vehicle's functions.

"Everyone is a Ferrari Fan..."

The delivery was made at a Ferrari agency in Monaco, where the Dutch driver has his residence, and where his rival Charles Leclerc, a native of the principality, turned an SF90 Stradale in an empty city during the pandemic to film the modern version. from

Le grand rendez-vous

, the short film that showed an in-depth journey through the streets of Paris, in 1976.

Verstappen's garage

This is not the first Ferrari that Verstappen will park in his garage.

Various media indicate that he already owns a 488 Pista and a spectacular Monza SP2.

Several copies remained

from the past association between

Red Bull and Aston Martin.

British publications assure that he keeps a DB11, in addition to owning a Vantage and a DBS Superleggera.

And the world champion is also believed to own an exotic Aston Martin Valkyrie, the hypercar designed by Red Bull's own Adrian Newey.

He had also bought a Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

Having won the 2016 Spanish Grand Prix, Verstappen became the youngest driver to win a Formula 1 race, and he celebrated that achievement with the acquisition of that 500 horsepower beast.

Four engines and 1,000 horsepower

After LaFerrari, the first hybrid model of the Italian brand, Ferrari evolved with this SF90 Stradale that not only

combines a combustion engine with other electric

ones , three in this case, but also its batteries can be recharged by plugging them into an electrical network.

The Ferrari SF90 Stradale was introduced in 2019.

In this way, this supercar can offer a

fully electric range

.

And although it is a small range (25 kilometers), it is enough not to be banned from entering certain areas of some European cities that are gradually prohibiting the entry of models with combustion engines.

But surely that wasn't what led Verstappen to buy an SF90 Stradale.

The powertrain of this coupe is made up of a V8 engine and three electrical machines.

Together they generate

1,000 horsepower

.

The combustion engine is centrally located at the rear, with 8 cylinders, which form a 90º V, and is supercharged by a turbocharger: it delivers 780 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque.

It is connected to an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

This is how the Ferrari SF90 Stradale looks inside.

One of the electric motors is mounted between the V8 and the transmission and the other two are on the front axle, which ends up giving

four-wheel drive

.

The declared benefits are hellish: it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds, from 0 to 200 km/h in 6.7 seconds and the declared top speed is 340 km/h.

Its price starts at 430,000 euros.
