A 2022 Ferrari SF90 Spider offered without Reserve

The first Sotheby’s Motorsport Auction Runs From August 15 – 22, 2023 timed with Monterey Car Week

MONTEREY, CA – August 15, 2023 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – Today, Sotheby’s Motorsport’s inaugural auction – a 2022 Ferrari SF90 Spider – begins and commemorates the launch of the new online automotive auction destination. Offered without reserve, global bidding for the Ferrari starts at $100,000 and will run from today at 7:00pm Eastern until 7:00pm Eastern on August 22.

When Ferrari created the SF90 Spider, it successfully defined a modern hybrid hypercar segment. SF90 – a namesake commemorating 90 years of the manufacturer’s motorsport heritage – marked the debut of its inaugural mid-engine all-wheel-drive production car. An icon fit to wear its coat of arms, this SF90 Spider flaunts Scuderia shields atop Rosso Corsa with Nero leather interior. It has a breathtaking hybrid powertrain delivering an astounding 1000 horsepower, the SF90 Spider propels you from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds. This particular vehicle has only 300 miles on the odometer, and touts a Twin-Turbo 4.0L V8 Plug-in Hybrid engine. It is offered with a clean Florida title in the selling dealer’s name, a clean CARFAX report, and original accessories.

“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,” said Chip Perry, CEO of Sotheby’s Motorsport. “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!”

The 2022 Ferrari SF90 Spider touts some impressive capabilities and features, including:

  • A simplified retractable hardtop and aluminum was used in its creation, saving about 88 pounds over a traditional hardtop;
  • Shift times are reduced to 200 milliseconds, which is approximately 30% less than the previous seven speed dual-clutch transmission; and
  • Four progressive drive modes: E-Drive, Hybrid, Performance, and Qualify. 1000 horsepower available in Qualify mode.

The 2022 Ferrari SF90 Spider will be on display during Monterey Car Week from August 17 – 19 at the RM Sotheby’s sale at the Portola Hotel in Monterey, California.
