Default Ferrari SUV news Coming Out




New four-seat Italian stallion set to pack a V12 power punch – just don’t call it an SUV?

Quote:
Expected to be the world’s fastest SUV when it launches in early 2022, the 300km/h-plus Ferrari Purosangue is tipped to be powered by a stonking 600kW (800hp) V12 petrol engine.

The all-wheel drive Ferrari wagon will feature height-adjustable suspension, allowing for mild off-road sojourns or ground-hugging, high-velocity blasts, and is sure to send Ferrari’s share price soaring as well.

Purists are none too keen on the new model, arguing it dilutes Ferrari’s sports car DNA, but the supercar marque’s accountants are surely rubbing their hands together as the prancing horse version of the Porsche Cayenne is set to deliver a massive increase in revenue.



The first Ferrari SUV will get plenty of tech, including a digital dashboard

New details uncovered by Car Magazine in the UK claim the Ferrari Purosangue will also offer a less potent but more efficient 522kW V8 hybrid version after the V12 flagship is established in the marketplace.

Understood to be a development of the Ferrari SF90 Stradale’s V8 hybrid powertrain, which can sing to the tune of 735kW, the Purosangue’s electrified set-up won’t sound as menacing as the V12 but is designed to adhere to stricter emissions regulations and move Ferrari with the times as various countries and individual jurisdictions prepare to ban internal combustion engines later this decade.


The Ferrari SF90 Stradale’s wild hybrid powertrain is on the SUV menu


The Ferrari SUV is also expected to get suicide-style rear opening doors to improve access to the rear seats while adding a touch of exotic flair to the vehicle.

Beyond the Purosangue (read: thoroughbred) name, Ferrari has released precious little official information on the new model, but has been careful to avoid the term SUV.

The design of the new model is understood to be influenced by shooting brake vehicles and these images created by KDesign provide one possible direction.


Whatever Ferrari designs, it will almost certainly be controversial

According to the UK press, Ferrari will expand its SUV range to include two further models – both smaller, more agile machines that will be pure EVs and are expected on sale in 2024 and 2026 respectively.

With Lotus set to unleash its first SUV soon and the likes of Lamborghini and Aston Martin already jumping on the SUV bandwagon, McLaren seems to be the only hold-out, insisting it will never build an SUV.

Now where have we heard that before?



Twin compact, all-electric Ferrari SUVs are said to be en route

Ferrari Purosangue SUV revealed: price, details on Ferrari's next big thing $400k
https://www.autoblog.com/2022/09/13/...sangue-reveal/


Quote:
Enter modern day, and the Purosangue before us marks a major turning point for the Maranello brand. Liberated from its red satin cover, the new model looks like nothing before it, despite the vaguely 296 GTB-ish front end and somewhat Roma-like taillamps. It’s a handsomely styled car that Ferrari brass say was designed with a keen eye toward the wind tunnel, though the company does not release aerodynamic drag figures for their GT models. Regardless, Purosangue comes across as more subtle and distinctive than the spy shots might have led you to believe, with flowing lines combined with novel features like an aerobridge on the hood similar to that of the F12Berlinetta. In this case, however, the feature is designed to reduce drag, not create downforce. Some could argue that it resembles the layout of the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT, with its long, arching roofline, large wheel wells, cinched rocker panels and tapered rear deck. But there’s much more going on here design-wise, from the delicately tapered nose to the clever “floating” wheel arches to the complex curves of the rear haunches. The shape looks deceptively compact, until you consider those seemingly small wheels are actually 22- and 23-inch hoops tucked within those fenders......

Rather than incorporate a hybrid or full-EV drivetrain, Purosangue features a delightfully old-school propulsion system: a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 producing 715 horsepower and 528 pound-feet of torque. Revised valvetrain, induction and exhaust systems enable the powertrain to realize 80% of its torque from 2,100 rpm. A dry sump system allows it to sit lower to the ground, and its front-mid-engine configuration and rear transaxle achieves an impressive front/rear weight distribution of 49/51. An all-new platform utilizes a stiffer, lighter structure that enables 30% more torsional stiffness than the late, great GTC4Lusso, yielding a dry weight of 4,482 pounds. Mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox, the engine drives all four wheels and should go like stink, with a claimed 0-62-mph time of 3.3 seconds and a top speed in excess of 192 mph. Like the now defunct GTC4Lusso, an all-wheel-drive system works up to fourth gear at 125 mph before disengaging.



black wheel arches for $400k.....

Lamest vehicle ever invented in the history of man. I'd have more respect for a Ferrari Minivan.

but then, Chrysler is part of a much larger automotive group that does have a SUV, so we'd have to consider Polestar as a brand that doesn't have a SUV, eventhough it's a part of Volvo, or Abarth, or Alpine, but they are all part of bigger groups that do have SUVs.

so I get it Chrysler, in a vacuum is a good guy American thing that has walked back from their SUV mistakes, but they are owned by the same company that owns Jeep, which invented the SUV market, so I personally won't give them a pass.

I mean it's not a traditional ferrari, and for that it's a little weird, but taking the car at face value, accepting what it is, it looks great. If I were in the market for a vehicle like this, I'd chose one of these over a Urus, for example.

Exactly, I don't aspire to own one, but if I sold a bunch of NFTs of Drunk Ants for $20 mil I'd get on the list for one of these.

Silly for sure, but who else currently has a NA V-12-powered SUV? Even dumber than the idea of a Ferrari SUV is the fact they will easily move these like practically all of their upper-tier models - for all the "buyers deemed worthy of owning one".
