After several months of teasing, Ferrari has officially launched its first-ever SUV called the Purosangue, which translates to “thoroughbred” in English from Italian. The vehicle, according to Ferrari, is not officially an SUV but a four-door, four-seater sports car that prioritizes comfort and versatility.
The Purosangue has a dry weight of 4,480 lb, and it is powered by a newly-developed 6.5-liter V12 engine that cranks out 715 hp and 528 lb-ft of torque sufficient enough for a 0-62 mph acceleration time of 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 193 mph. Other features include a new suspension system and an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, with four-wheel drive available up to 4th gear and 124 mph, after which it automatically switches to rear-wheel drive.
High-strength aluminum alloys in the spaceframe chassis and carbon fiber in some body panels, including the roof, have been used to help reduce weight while maintaining rigidity. Customers can choose to have the carbon roof swapped for electrochromic glass.
Design-wise, the Purosangue resembles the Roma coupe, and it boasts a long nose and rear-hinged suicide-style doors, allowing for easier exit and entry for the rear passengers. Interior-wise, the car features four individual and adjustable massaging seats, and the back seats can fold flat just like regular SUVs when more cargo space is needed.
The luxury vehicle also features a dual-cockpit with a 10.25-inch display for the front passengers with Android Audio and Apple CarPlay standard. Other luxury features include the premium Burmester 3D Surround Sound System and cabin air filtration, and customers can choose between leather, carbon fiber, and Alcantara trims.
The Ferrari Purosangue will officially commence shipping at the end of 2023. Prices will start at 390,000 Euros (approximately $391,000 USD) for Ferrari’s home market, while the U.S. pricing will be announced closer to the local launch. Ferrari plans to limit production to 3,000 units per year, or roughly 20% of its 15,000-unit total annual capacity.
