This is the 2023 Ferrari Purosangue SUV, the Ferrari SUV or Ferrari FUV.
Ferrari will follow Lamborghini and Aston Martin and launch its own 2023 Ferrari Purosangue SUV, but with a twist. While the Sant’Agata Bolognese and Gaydon models are not in limited production, the high-riding machine from Maranello will account for no more than 20 percent of total annual shipments. With this strategy, the Prancing Horse wants the Purosangue to remain as exclusive as its traditional sports cars.
Ahead of its confirmed debut in September, the Thoroughbred has been speculatively rendered by Kolesa after prototypes wearing the full production body were recently spotted in Italy. Expect the design to feature some Roma influences in a lower body, as the New Ferrari Purosangue won’t be like most SUVs, with performance still taking precedence, but with more practicality than ever. It will be Ferrari’s first series-production hatchback considering the 456 GT Venice wagon was capped at just seven cars.
Like the Bentley Bentayga, the Ferrari Purosangue will be powered by a twelve-cylinder engine, but that’s where the similarities end. The family-friendly Ferrari Purosangue FUV has been confirmed to have a naturally aspirated V12, while the British luxury SUV has a twin-turbo W12. The new platform it will ride on has been designed to accommodate a plug-in hybrid setup, so a possible electrified version is likely to have a smaller combustion engine.
Originally announced in September 2018, the Ferrari SUV will have all-wheel drive and a dual-clutch automatic transmission. It will seat four people and have nothing in common with the Maserati Levante, though you may remember that the first Purosangue test mules borrowed modified bodies from the Modena SUV.
