Ferrari Purosangue what we already know about the Italian SUV

It is now a certainty, Ferrari will go through the SUV box. Expected for 2021, the very discreet “Purosangue” model was filmed in its camouflage near the Fiorano circuit.

SUVs have been on the rise for several years now. But some manufacturers, especially luxury brands , have taken much longer than general manufacturers to get up to date. Until a few years ago, no one imagined seeing Aston Martin SUVs (like the recent DBX for example), or Lamborghini SUVs (the Urus in 2018).

A Levante-style Ferrari SUV

The Italian SUV, seen at the start of the year under a thick camouflage made up of several bodywork elements taken from its cousin the Maserati Levante, is still a confidential project. The prancing horse brand, which has been fueling rumors for several years, only confirmed in 2018 the official name of the model: Purosangue . By way of comparison, the Levante released in phase 2 in 2020, offers several engine levels, in V6 or V8, with a power varying between 345 and 590 horsepower and 4-wheel drive.

For now, the model is most likely expected by the end of 2021 , and no further announcements have been made on the subject. Only a few videos circulate on the net with camouflaged versions.

Several engines: V12 and V8

In terms of engines, rumors are linked. Some evoke a rechargeable hydride engine, as it was done on the SF90 Stradale for example, which combines a V8 engine of 780 hp and an electric motor of 220 hp, for an incredible result at 1000 hp all round. Here, it is surely not envisaged to reach such levels of power: the rumors evoke the use of the V8 twin-turbocharged 3.9 l of the GTC4 Lusso to animate it, which develops all the same 650 hp.

One thing is certain, to overcome certain penalties , the Purosangue will probably opt for a hybrid engine. Not sure, however, that he will ignore the penalty in terms of the weight of the vehicle …
