We can never imagine a day when a file Ferrari SUVs will become a reality. According to Ferrari CEO Benedetto Vigna, the Italian sports car company is preparing to unveil its first-ever luxury SUV, the Purosangue (meaning “authentic” in Italian), in the coming months. He also mentioned that Ferrari will announce two new models, after introducing four beautiful cars last year. The Italian brand has hinted on its official Instagram account about the upcoming SUV. The new Ferrari Purosangue SUV will compete against other super sports cars such as the Lamborghini Urus, Aston Martin DBX and Porsche Cayenne.
Ferrari impresses with the Purosangue SUV
The teaser confirms some subtlety in the leaked images of the upcoming model that we’ve already seen. The Ferrari Purosangue SUV teaser image depicts a monster-like SUV in red under dark lighting. “I’ve heard these rumors… and we are happy to confirm that they are true (some of them). Everything will be revealed later this year,” read the Ferrari Instagram caption. The Purosangue SUV will be, according to the automaker, a “real game changer.”
As for the styling, a Ferrari alternative to the Lamborghini Urus and Bentley Bentayga was recently spotted on the road with the least camouflage form yet. The Ferrari SF90 and F8 Tributo supercars inspired the design of the split headlights. Being an SUV, it naturally has a little more weight and heft. The Purosangue SUV will have narrow DRL stripes and a simple front grille, according to the teaser image. Details about Purosangue are few at the moment. We expect to release detailed technical specifications for the SUV when Ferrari officially launches the car.
What do you expect from a wild horse stable
Several theories have been published online, as well as a few spy photos that have been released of the SUV. Other details about the vehicle, such as which engine you will be using, are uncertain. But we know it will be fast, and it will compete with cars like the Lamborghini Urus, Aston Martin DBX and Porsche Cayenne. In all likelihood, the Purosangue might use the Ferrari Roma’s 3.9-liter turbocharged V8. The V12 SUV is unlikely to meet emission regulations in the future. The Purosangue will almost certainly get an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. However, we cannot rule out the possibility of a hybrid powertrain for the Ferrari SUV. A hybrid system could be the solution Ferrari is taking to offer all-wheel drive.
We really think Purosangue can be a massive hit when compared to its closest competitor. Purosangue will democratize Ferraris and could elevate the brand to even greater heights. The Lamborghini Urus and the Porsche Cayenne are proof of that. While some purists might argue that Ferrari’s SUV is blasphemy, enthusiasts believe that if Ferrari needs to make an SUV in order to make more awesome sports cars, it’s a win for all.
