Ferrari Purosangue To Unveil On September 13
Recently, Ferrari announced that its first-ever SUV, the Ferrari Purosangue, will debut on September 13 and teased the vehicle’s front end with slanted headlights. The eagerly anticipated Italian super-SUV will initially be equipped with a new V12 engine.
Ferrari has stated that a new naturally aspirated V12 engine will be installed in the Purosangue, although it is unclear how comparable the new engine will be to the current 6.5-liter unit used in the 812 Superfast. According to CEO Benedetto Vigna, “We’ve examined a number of ideas. It was obvious that the V12 was the best choice on the market given its performance and driving pleasure.
Vigna said, “I can tell you that it’s a real sportscar, and unlike any other, from our test drives in the hills near Maranello.” It will be “100% Ferrari,” he continued, and “it will meet and surpass any expectations you have of us in terms of performance, innovation, and design.”
The future super-SUV will be constructed using one of Ferrari’s two brand-new, distinctive designs, one of which is intended for front-mid-engined GT vehicles like the Purosangue and the other for mid-engined cars like the recently released 296 GTB.
Both designs can support V6, V8, and V12 engines, with or without hybrid support, when partnered with transaxle dual-clutch automatic gears, rear- or four-wheel drive, and 2-, 2+2-, or 4-seat cabins with a range of wheelbase lengths.
The Ferrari Purosangue and other Ferrari GT models will receive an entirely new interior design that takes a “eyes on the road, hands on the wheel” philosophy as its foundation. The Italian supercar manufacturer will employ a new infotainment system, a head-up display, new gauges, new interior controls, back seat entertainment, and enhanced entry and exit.
Aston Martin DBX707, Bentley Bentayga W12, Lamborghini Urus, and Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT are just a few of the ultra-high-performance SUVs that have recently been added to the lineup.
