Ferrari Officially announces the Purosangue SUV, the car maker's first-ever four-door production vehicle
September 15, 2022: -On Tuesday, Ferrari disclosed its new Purosangue, the 75-year-old sports car maker’s first-ever four-door production vehicle.
The Purosangue looks such as an SUV, akin to other luxury sports SUVs from brands such as Porsche and Maserati. But despite its size, shape, and higher stance, the company is insisting that the Purosangue, which means “thoroughbred” in Italian, is a sports car designed from the ground up as an actual Ferrari.
The Purosangue should not have a traditional Ferrari shape, but it will sound like a Ferrari. A 6.5-liter power in the new model, a 715-horsepower V-12 engine mounted following the front axle rather than over it, as with the SUVs and crossovers.
Ferrari said the location of the engine and the Purosangue’s transaxle, mounted at the rear, distributes the vehicle’s weight nearly evenly among the four wheels, which improves its handling.
While Ferrari is well known for its two-seat sports cars, the company has been building four-seaters since the 1960s, and all-wheel-drive models since the FF coupe was introduced in 2011. But even Ferrari admitting the Purosangue carries the storied brand into new territory.
Ferrari said that the Purosangue would start at 390,000 euros ($389,000) in Italy, making it the company’s second most expensive production model behind the 440,000-euro SF90 hybrid sports car.
The automaker said that deliveries will be starting n the second quarter of 2023 in Europe, in the third quarter in the U.S, and by the end of the coming year in different global markets.
Despite its hefty beginning price, the Purosangue is to be popular with Ferrari’s affluent clients.
Rival Porsche’s two SUVs, the Cayenne and Macan, together accounted for regarding 55% of Porsche’s production in 2021. But Ferrari won’t be letting the Purosangue get quite that popular. The company plans to limit the display of the Purosangue to not over 20% of its total annual output, or only nearly 3,000 units per year.
