Three-quarters of a century passed, but finally Ferrari launched its first four-door sedan. Dubbed the Ferrari Purosangue, the new model joins a lineup that includes everything from the sleek Roma and modern 296 to the wild SF90 and luxurious 812. Depending on your point of view, it’s either a matter of time or a reprehensible move for that old Enzo is straight. Rumble from the San Cataldo Cemetery and the Ferrari Congress Palace.
Consider the evidence as we take a closer look at Maranello’s new challenger. One of the most anticipated car launches of the year was shown live at the Black Box conference, where phones were seized. Ferrari is moving away from the idea that the new model is actually a sports car. “We don’t call it an SUV,” insists Ferrari CEO Benedetto Vigna. “We’re not even talking about an SUV.” Well then. Ferrari went to great lengths to stack the Purosangue tires to support a balanced layout. So the big V12 is there, and the 8-speed dual-clutch transmission is the rear axle, helping achieve a 49/51 front-to-rear weight balance. The standard carbon fiber roof ensures that the center of gravity is as low as possible. Interestingly, Ferrari gave the debutant a new tailgate setup with power locks in the style of the Bentley Bentayga and Rolls-Royce Cullinan (not to mention the Genesis G90). The rear doors open 79 degrees, which is important for easy entry and exit, especially since the rear seats aren’t the roomiest.
The new guy has a massive naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 with the most output of any Ferrari GT in history: 715 horsepower and 528 pound-feet of torque. The engine produces 80% torque at 2,100 rpm, peak power at 7,750 rpm, and top speed at 8,250 rpm, which should make for a very exciting powerband.
This flexibility is furthered by a dual-clutch transmission that offers a choice of eight forward gears. The dry-sump engine features an all-new valvetrain and improved intake geometry designed to help deliver low-end power. The Purosangue is estimated to reach 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds and has a top speed of over 308 km/h. Like the GTC4 Lusso, the new model has four-wheel drive with front-wheel drive disengaged above fourth gear and/or around 200 km/h.
Para bien o para mal, muchos compradores potenciales juzgarán este cuatro plazas más por su estilo que por un solo factor, lo cual es comprensible dado su precio inicial de €390,000 (alrededor de $400,000). Atrae a compradores que ya poseen una amplia variedad de autos. en tu garaje. Diré esto: su plata titanio probablemente no sea el tono más fuerte.
