The Ferrari Purosangue has finally been revealed! The long-waited Ferrari SUV we’ve all been waiting for is here, and it’s fantastic. This is the first mass produced 4-door 4-seater from Ferrari, thus they took their time to get the Purosangue “pure-blood” right!
Like we mention awhile back, this will be a difficult SUV to acquire for a multitude of reasons. Reason #1 is the cost at $400,000 MSRP, making it a premium over most luxury/performance-based SUVs currently available. Reason #2 is the allocations allowed, as Ferrari has made very clear that the Purosangue will not account for more than 20% of their production. Reason #3 is the availability of that 20% that’s left. Ferrari has already pre-sold many of their Purosangue SUVs to current Ferrari clientele, making the available models left hard to come by and get your hands on.
The Ferrari Purosangue comes with an amazing Naturally Aspirated 6.5L V12 Engine that revs to 8250 RPM and outputs 715hp / 528 lb-ft torque. With an estimated weight of 5000lbs, 0-60mph is achieved in 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 193mph is reached. All of this performance is to all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission, though there’s a catch with the all wheel drive system. The Purosangue remains in all wheel drive up to 124mph, in which it will automatically switch to rear wheel drive for optimal performance. This AWD/RWD system is the same one featured in both the Ferrari FF and GTC4 Lusso.
This suspension system as a whole is pretty nifty, as there is no longer any need for anti-roll bars! Why is this? Each wheel contains a small electric motor that applies direct force to the dampers that will further control movement of the Purosangue’s body. The suspension can also lower the body by a near ½ inch for attacking the corners around a track. To complete the suspension system, on the outsides we find 255s on the front with 22” wheels and 315s on the rear with 23” wheels.
Inside Ferrari mentions the display systems are borrowed from their current lineup, translating into; A 10.2” digital gauge cluster, slim screen for the front passenger, and no infotainment screen. The seats are lavishly styled and fit the overall performance aesthetic of the SUV, including the steering wheel.
