Is it coming? Isn’t it coming? The rumors about a Ferrari SUV have been around for years. It is now certain: The SUV from Ferrari is coming and even has a name. The so-called “FUV” (Ferrari Utility Vehicle) is called Purosangue (thoroughbred) and is said to be the fastest vehicle in its class. LatestCarNews has all the information about this historic model, especially for Ferrari!
Lamborghini has the Urus, Bentley the Bentayga, Rolls-Royce the Cullinan, Aston Martin recently launched the DBX, and Porsche has long offered the Cayenne. The luxury SUV market is booming. After the success of the competition, the move towards SUVs seems inevitable for Ferrari as well. The best example is the Lamborghini brand, which even expanded the plant in Sant’Agata Bolognese for its Urus SUV and almost doubled sales in 2019 with almost 5,000 Urus sold.
Ferrari Purosangue Engine
As it currently looks, the Purosangue will replace the GTC4 Lusso model range at Ferrari. The first, heavily camouflaged spyshot are already out and about around Maranello. What we know: Ferrari’s first SUV has four doors, but no annoying B-pillars. The Purosangue is powered by the completely newly developed V6 turbo gasoline engine, which is optionally available with a hybrid drive.
The system output could be over 700 hp. A V8 or V12 in the Purosangue is rather unlikely, but not completely ruled out at the moment. In addition, the SUV is based on the newly developed front-engine platform, which should also be used for other models in the future. In terms of optics, the Purosangue is likely to be based on the Maserati Levante, the roofline is expected to drop sharply to the rear.
The SUV comes in 2021
In the interior, the SUV will offer all the comforts of a luxury SUV and rely on the new digital cockpit architecture, some of which can already be found in the Roma and the SF90 Stradale. Originally, the Purosangue was supposed to come onto the market in 2020 at a price of around 300,000 euros. The new Ferrari boss Louis Carey Camilleri has postponed the market launch to 2021 to perfect the model.
