Leaked: A controversial new Ferrari

November 24, 2020 Share

The wait is almost over. After years of hushed whispers and speculation, the Ferrari Purosangue is finally making its grand appearance. Revealed last week by the Italian supercar maker, this new SUV format addition to the ‘Prancing Horse’ marque constitutes a dramatic departure from its typical low and sleek gentleman racer designs that have made the firm famous.

However, as the name Purosangue (‘pure blood’) suggests this is no tame motor – it is based on the newly revealed, Roma GT sportscar platform in terms of architecture and design, taking notes from the brand’s classic GT race-models of the 1960s. 

Designed to compete in the ever growing market of ultra-premium SUV’s alongside the very popular Lamborghini Urus, Bentley Bentayga and Aston Martin DBX, this Ferrari brings with it  dramatic lines, long nose, short tail and a flared backend. In a first for the brand, this car will adopt a three door layout with a single half-door behind the driver for rear-seat passengers; a distinction that keeps it apart from competitors and doubters claiming that Ferrari is simply pandering to the market.

The Purosangue features an ample boot and a plug-in hybrid powertrain capable of housing either V6, V8 or V12 engines with speculation that once released it will likely boast a turbocharged 3.9-litre V8.

Dubbed the first “FUV” (‘Ferrari Utility Vehicle’) this super car will hit the pavements around the world for collectors and pre-booked clients in 2021 at a price tag of around £200K ($267K). Although certainly a bold move from Ferrari in stark contrast to much of the designs in  its 91 year history, we love the Purosangue and cannot wait to take it for a spin…. 

After all what could be better than a Ferrari that can hold 4 passengers, our skis and a couple of crates of champagne as you make your way to the Alpina?
