The Ferrari purosangue is the first Ferrari with four doors; the term, when translated into English, means “thoroughbred.” But not everything is quite so innovative; peeking under the hood, you’ll discover a resolutely vintage naturally aspirated V12. Engines aren’t any more thrilling. The GTC4Lusso is effectively replaced by the Ferrari Purosangue as the “family Ferrari,” despite the fact that it is a much more adaptable vehicle. Potential rivals include the Aston Martin DBX, Lamborghini Urus, Bentley Bentayga, and Rolls-Royce Cullinan. Ferrari is reluctant to refer to this vehicle as an SUV; marketing chief Enrico Galliera says that it is “100% a sports car.” The Ferrari Purosangue SUV is covered in the information below.
Engine, Power and Transmission
Under the hood, the new Ferrari purosangue will be available with one powerplant. This will be a 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V-12 engine with an 8250 rpm maximum rev limit. With only 528 pound-feet of torque, the non-turbo V-12 lags behind its boosted competitors but still outperforms the twin-turbo V-8 in the Lamborghini Urus Performante with 715 horsepower. 80 per cent of that torque, according to Ferrari, will be usable at 2100 rpm. However, the Purosangue is guaranteed to be a revvy machine because the power peak is at 7750 rpm and the torque peak is at 6250 rpm. According to Ferrari, the car will reach 62 mph in 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 193 mph.
The purosangue comes with an all-wheel drive and an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission make-up transmission. Up to 124 mph and just in the first four ratios, it is a front-driver above that. The same Side Slip Control system as other Ferraris, which controls the traction control, stability control, and ABS programming, is a standard feature, along with rear-wheel steering.
On the exterior, The Purosangue’s proportions are more similar to those of the GTC4 Lusso. than any of its higher SUV rivals, with a long, low nose and a rising character line that forms a wedge-like appearance. According to Ferrari designers, a distinct division between the upper and lower bodies was envisaged. The lower section consists of an aggressive rear diffuser and wheel-well cladding that can be coated in either carbon fiber or matte black. This is meant to communicate the car’s power and capacity. The upper section is meant to be smooth and attractive.
Visually, the discrete components help the Purosangue appear shorter, but the design is disjointed due to the abundance of aesthetic aspects vying for your attention. However, the front end deceives you with fake headlamp cutouts that aren’t even headlights. Instead, the scooped-out components close to the hood cutline are air vents, and the lighting strips that cut through them act as turn signals and daytime running lights. Further down, on either side of the lower air intakes, are the real headlights.
Ferrari Purosangue Interior
Stepping inside, the “Welcome Doors” of the Ferrari Purosangue open like clasps and provide a wide-angle view of the interior before softly closing with an electronic buzz. Adults can fit comfortably in the rear seats, which provides room for four individual chairs. A full-length electrochromic glass sunroof that brightens at the touch of a button can literally dazzle your passengers, but this car only has room for four people and doesn’t offer a three-abreast rear bench. A Nissan Qashqai’s boot offers about the same space as a boxy hatchback.
Infotainment and connectivity
In terms of infotainment and features, the dashboard features the same digital displays as other Ferrari cars. This includes a 10.2-inch digital gauge cluster for the driver and a screen for the front passenger. There are numerous other buttons and knobs on the steering wheel in addition to the well-known Mannetino drive-mode controller. There will be a variety of leather, Alcantara, and carbon-fibre trim options. The typical roof is made of carbon fibre, but you can instead choose a glass roof with electrochromic tint controls.
Ferrari Purosangue price
The Ferrari Purosangue price in its Italian price is €390,000, or around £338,000 at the current currency rate. This is twice the starting price of a Lamborghini Urus or an Aston Martin DBX.
