With just over 9,000 cars shipped in 2020, Ferrari's volume is less than 1% of a mainstream player like Toyota. However, in terms of history and prestige, it's hard to get much bigger than the prancing horse, and though the brand has gotten this far largely by doing its own thing, even the House of Enzo can't ignore the brave new world of electrification.

Naturally, just slapping an electric motor on a car isn't enough for Fiorano's finest engineers. With the SF90 Stradale, Ferrari created something special. It's an engineering marvel that you might think has a lot of parallels with another vehicular wunderkind: Acura's NSX. However, the Stradale is so radically different in terms of feel and performance that I have to confess it's actually a little hard to compare the two.

Also important for just that reason is looking at the F8 Tributo, Ferrari's current premium supercar with which the SF90 shares a chassis and some other bits.
