Ferrari Purosangue SUV Will Be Coming With a 715-HP V12
Finally, Ferrari has ventured into the SUV industry making its debut on Tuesday. The Purosangue is the very first four-door from the Italian company, and with a rad design and big power, it looks nothing short of a proper and real Ferrari.
The suicide doors from the Purosangue reveal a four-seat configuration and this is the only way that it will be coming. You should know that there is no bench seat option with this one and beyond that, while the Purosangue looks many spacious in regards to passengers, its 16.7 cubic feet of cargo space simply means that you will need to pack light for the weekends. The rear doors open at a 79-degree angle at the least thus making it to get in and out of the back seats.
The Purosangue SUV Has Less of a Traditional Two-Box SUV Shape
In terms of styling, it is subjective of course. But in my opinion, the Purosangue is not that bad as it looks really cool. The SUV has less of a traditional two-box SUV shape and looks kind of like a swollen sports car, bulging out in all the right spots and lastly taking some styling cues from the amazingly-looking Roma and new 296 GTB.
The Purosangue Is Almost At the Same Size as a Lamborghini Urus
Ferrari as you should know is a master of mid-engine sports car balance, and it has worked really hard in keeping this in check with the Purosangue SUV. Ferrari backed the engine of the SUV as far back against the firewall as possible, thus resulting in a nearly ideal 49:51 front-to-rear weight distribution all through. The Purosangue is almost the same size as a Lamborghini Urus and it tips the scales at 4,483 pounds.
The Purosangue Uses a Naturally Aspirated 6.5-Liter V12
Interestingly, the engine under the hood does not have any form of electrification. The Purosangue uses a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 thus making 715 horsepower and a 528 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Ferrari estimates this one to a 0-to-62-mph time of 3.3 seconds and the SUV’s top speed crests 192 mph. and being an SUV, the Purosangue generally and naturally has an all-wheel drive.
Ferrari Worked With Canadian Company Multimatic in Manufacturing of the Purosangue SUV
There’s some electrification embedded in the Purosangue, as you should know. Ferrari worked with Canadian company Multimatic to develop 48-volt suspension technology, and in the process allowed for active dampers and anti-roll control. The Purosangue has to drive like a Ferrari whether it is an SUV or not.
Estimated Price of the Purosangue
The Purosangue also is priced like a Ferrari as you should have expected. It has an estimated base price of around $400,000.
