The SF90 Stradale isn’t just a 986 hp AWD plug-in hybrid but also serves as an acting flagship until the LaFerrari replacement (codenamed F250) comes out in 2024. Unlike those two models, the SF90 Stradale’s production isn’t extremely limited, and yet the insane specs owners order come to challenge this. Case in point with this SF90 Stradale dressed in Atomic Orange, which is a Corvette color.
Over the past decade or so, I’ve seen more and more carmakers borrowing shades from other car companies. Examples that come to mind involve countless BMW Ms dressed in Audi’s Nardo Grey and even a 991-gen Porsche 911 GT3 finished in the Prancing Horse’s staple shade, Rosso Corsa.
Of course, with this being Ferrari and the Corvette having gone mid-engined for the current C8 generation (by the way, this is the cheapest 2024 Corvette configuration you can buy), the spec of this SF90 Stradale is bound to grab some serious attention.
It’s worth mentioning that Atomic Orange is a shade from the C6 era, having been officially offered on the Chevrolet Corvette between the 2007 and 2009 model years.
Now, the Atomic Orange Ferrari SF90 Stradale was delivered by Ferrari Mumbai (Navnit Motors Ferrari) to an enthusiast named Aryan Kalyanam back in August. And the name of the color is mentioned in an Instagram post from the said dealer. For the record, I also found an SF90 Spider in this color hanging out in Dallas, Texas and there may also be others out there.
The spec also features diamond-cut forged wheels and gloss black brake calipers. As for the interior of the Fezza, this features leather and Alcantara in Carta da Zucchero, a light blue/gray hue. Another shade of orange (Arancio) is used for contrast stitching across the cabin, as well as on the seats.
As the Ferraristi among you may have figured out by now, this is more of a grand tourer spec. So you won’t find the $56,000 Assetto Fiorano package here. This shaves 66 lbs (30 kg) by adding fixed shocks and springs from Multimatic, along with a titanium and Inconel exhaust, a Lexan engine cover, and uses carbon fiber for the hood, bumpers, intake plenum, seats, and others. Plus, the more aggressive aero of the Assetto Fiorano, with a rear wing that makes this easy to recognize, boosts downforce to 860 lbs (360 kg) at 155 mph.
Another extreme Ferrari SF90 Stradale option (also not found here) involves the 20-inch carbon fiber wheels, which are 40% lighter than the said wheels. For the record, I was able to find such wheels for sale online, with the price ranging between $42,000 and $54,000 depending on the source.
Ferrari Atelier vs Ferrari Tailor Made: what’s the difference?
The Atomic Orange Ferrari SF90 was specced using Ferrari Atelier, as mentioned on the door entry sills of the vehicle. But what does this mean? In a nutshell, when configuring your Ferrari, you have three levels (in ascending order of depth): the dealer, Ferrari Atelier and Ferrari Tailor Made.
Ferrari Atelier is a dedicated configuration area, separate from the main dealership. It contains a digital configurator, along with physical samples for the paint, the interior leather, seats, and others. And while the Ferrari Atelier is open to any customer, you can only find one in select locations across the world.
Now, the supreme step for Prancing Horse customization is Ferrari Tailor Made, which is only used for the most bespoke of configurations. This is only available in a few parts of the Globe, such as the Ferrari factory in Maranello, Shanghai, and New York.
So it is possible to configure your car using Ferrari Atelier without going as far as using options that require the Tailor Made program.
And, regardless of how deep you go with customizing your Ferrari, the starting point is the exterior color. As this SF90 Stradale borrowing the Atomic Orange Corvette color proves, the Italian automaker allows plenty of choices, even though there are some exceptions, which is why this Pink F40 uses a wrap.
Of course, there are still mysteries revolving around Ferrari’s Tailor Made program. And we’ve recently discussed this when showcasing this camouflage/Minecraft spec Ferrari Purosangue, which must be the most liberal configuration seen to date.
