    The SF0 and F8 are priced relatively similarly, performance isn’t that different, obviously there are some technological differences, but why would someone buy an F8 over an SF90? Or more importantly, why would Ferrari release both cars within a year of each other? The SF90 seems the F8 replacement, why not wait until the end of the F8’s market life to release an SF90 replacement? Is the SF90 considered a replacement for the F8? Both are incredible cars, but from a marketing perspective with the F8 vs SF90 it has me a bit confused.

    Insight is appreciated!!

    With respect your post is nonsense !

    The F8 which will be replaced by LB costs about half the SF90 which is a technology showcase without luggage space

    For pricing a very well specced F8 would be about $75-100k less than the SF90, which in the Ferrari world is peanuts.

    You can't compare dissimilar specs. Spec for spec, the Stradale is about twice the price of the F8.

    You might want to change your user name...

    You clearly are making assumptions. Why don't you stop by your dealer and config an F8 and an SF90? Let me know how that similar pricing thing works out for ya. I reckon about a 200-250k usd difference at least. 300 if you go AF.

    Did you mean to post this on April 1? What do you think the base price is for the F8 and the SF90? Last time I checked the price was 270k for an F8 and 512k for the SF90 (pricing may be different now). Performance wise they aren’t even close to each other either.

    Yes, that thing about performance being close, is pretty odd too. Please explain how you came to that conclusion? What is the official Fiorano times - about 3-4 seconds apart? That's MASSIVE!

    The SF90 is the new top model. It used to be the V12 two seater, but now there's the SF90.

    The replacement for the F8 will be the LB, not the BB which was what we called the SF90 prior to launch. If you are unsure about what LB means, there's a lot of info here. But in short, it's the "Little Brother", which is a V6 hybrid, and what will come after the F8. The SF90 was Big Brother.

    A well configured SF90 with AF is easily 650+ usd. You will have to go TM and all out to get an F8 to 450. Add CF wheels and some TM options to that SF90 and pricing goes into 700 usd.

    If you config an F8 wihout CF wheels, but outer CF options, the electronics, a nice paint etc. you are looking at 400,ish usd. If you do the same to an SF90, i.e nice seats, nice paint, electrics, but no CF wheel and no AF, you are easily in the 600-625k usd.

    They aren’t even close in terms of performance or price. But they’re both fantastic.

    As an F8 owner and with an SF90 spider on order, I can say this thread is the very definition of inanity. The technology, pricing and performance are nowhere near similar. This is just silly or someone looking to stir the pot.

    Kind of interesting to see that he is logging on, and is probably reading our comments. Yet he is obviously not interested in discussing the matter further. Odd.

    I assume you are American and don't have a passport... ;-)

    Some parts of the world tax cars based upon CO2 emissions.

    Where I live, for example an 812SF...you will have to pay: Ferrari manufacturer price PLUS 95,000 euro (approx 110,000 USD) CO2/pollution tax on top, PLUS over the combined price 21% VAT. On an 812SF the combined extra taxes can add up to 160,000 euro (200,000 USD) extra taxes.

    F8 being v8 turbo, will not be as heavily taxed as V12, but still will hurt!

    SF90...being hybrid and therefore super low on CO2 emissions...hardly any 'pollution tax' added and therefore actually pretty nicely priced compared to other Ferraris. It is still one of the most expensive in the line-up, but the difference actually not to severe. Hence, would always opt for SF90.

    So fully depends on context and location...

    Very true, but when such a thing is debated on a forum such as this, we need to think about it from a base price perspective. It is also worth noting that the OP used USD as the figure, not Euro or other currency. This is why I talked about it from that point of view, and not what the price is in my country. Don't want to risk people having a heart attack.:D

    If we go by prices on the road on plates where I am, an SF90 starts at 8500000 dkr. or about 1.32 mil usd with ZERO options added. Add the extras and you are looking at 9.5-10 mill dkr. or 1.5 mill usd.

    A well specced F8 with lots of CF is about 950k usd by comparison. So while that is not half, there's a pretty big jump from 950k to 1.5 mill.

    What is the price difference between a well specced SF90 without AF and a well specced F8 where you are? That is the topic.

    Also, while pricing might be dependant on where you are, performance is not, nor is where it sits in the line-up.

    Just a quick addition. The OP is US American by the way, so the US pricing we are discussing is correct in this context.

    I would say a well specced F8 in the Netherlands would buy a well specced SF90 in the US...for the same money ;-)

    Yeah and a well specced F8 in Denmark will buy you a well specced SF90 for you and a Porto for the wife...

    It was not what it was about. The OP made the claim based on where he was that they were both close in price and performance - that is what this thread is about.
