    As weird as this may sound, Ferrari seems to be pretty far in development for a Challenge version of the SF90.
    If this will be replacing the FXXK I do not know. I also do not have any other technical details.

    I'd like to keep my sources protected, but rest assured this was confirmed by more than a handfull of people at Ferrari. They talked quite openly about it as if is nearing completion in it's development cycle actually which I found quite odd. This wasn't revealed to me but someone close whom I trust.

    The name Challenge would imply a race car, akin to the 488 Challenge, not an XX programme. It makes sense.

    Correct, however one could also argue that the FXXK platform has also had it's time now. And why the need for 2 'hybrid race cars'.
    So many questions….

    any news here? Their xx lineup is getting dated (except fxxkevo) compared to other track cars from competitors ; like the senna gtr or valkayre track car. A new xx car would always be wellcomed and In order to continue development of future hybrid technology a sf90 xx could prove beneficial..

    To me a SF90 XX car makes a lot of sense. Like the 599XX this will be the stopgap XX car until the next Hypercar is launched followed by its XX version.

    An 812XX revving higher with the usual XX treatment also seems like a potential future for the 599XX slot.

    That could be an 812 XX.

    Is the SF90 Challenge going to be the replacement of the 488 Challenge EVO just launched or will there be 2 Challenges series?

    That could be an 812XX. :) Great find on your part. I have a 488 Challenge and am adding the Evo kit to it. I would guess there would be only be 1 type of car since Evo for the 488 Challenge was just announced and will be a requirement starting during the 2020 Ferrari Challenge season. These same reasons are also why I think this configuration will be around for 2-3 years.

    I also think that there would probably need to be a new multi manufacturer race for a variant of a potential SF Challenge for it to come to market. Which means some type of hybrid / electric race GTE or GT3 race.

    I say that because some of the best drivers from Ferrari Challenge go on to race the GTE and GT3 variants against other manufacturers. If there are no other manufacturers to go against, Ferrari may hold off until either that or the SF90 architecture and performance matures. Ok, in reading this I am clearly writing this from the land of guesstimation about the SF90.

    Do you know the context that potential 812XX has picture was taken in? Thanks

    The image is photoshop and I believe it was made on the first 812 that arrived to Monaco.
    According to what you say, it could be assumed that the SF90S could be a XX and not a Challenge, the XX is close to being replaced and the SF90S should be the right one.

    Or Ferrari could simply use the SF90 platform to develop hybrid racing which my filter down to future race or XX cars.
    Fact is that most of their test drivers mentioned having driven a hybrid set up already….

    I would love some more Ferrari element into it.
    But I will take it too as is.
