Ferrari’s first ever SUV confirmed for September 13 launch


Ferrari has confirmed that the Purosangue, Italian for “thoroughbred,” will make its production form debut on September 13th. The confirmation came in the form of a teaser that shows the crossover’s headlights and a sample of the engine note.

The leaked spy photos of the car in testing show that the Purosangue will be more of a sporty crossover than a rugged SUV, as one would expect from a vehicle bearing the Ferrari logo.

It looks more like a taller version of the GTC4 Lusso hatchback, which it directly replaces. 

The Purosangue is built on a new front mid-engine platform developed by Ferrari for grand touring models. The company has been quiet on specs, but a V-12 engine is expected at launch.

An electrified option based on Ferrari’s V-8 or possibly its new V-6 is also expected at some point. Interestingly, there are rumors that Ferrari’s first electric vehicle, due around 2025, will also be a crossover, possibly a Purosangue variant.

Ferrari Purosangue’s deliveries are expected to begin later this year or early next
