We’re finally there. After so much waiting, Ferrari lifts the veil in your new atypical racing car. Attention, although the temptation is great, Ferrari asks that it not be categorized as an SUV!

here it is Ferrari Purebloodthe most imposing of all the cars launched and studded in the famous prancing horse.

Ferrari Purosangue: SUV or not SUV?

It’s important to get things right from the start. facing a vehicle of this size, hard not to ask the question! However, according to the Italian brand, the Ferrari Purosangue is not an SUV. Nothing could be more logical, that kind of label doesn’t stick to the hair of a prancing horse!

But if we remain purely pragmatic, it must be said that this Purosangue have something to make us doubt.

His disorder, your four doorsyour four seats it’s him height of 1.74 meters… So many clues that show that it is anything but a classic coupe, as the Italian brand has accustomed us so much.

But in the end, one sport utility vehicle » is just a denomination. Straight from a marketing research department! And even though this Purosangue has everything of a useful vehicle, and even sporty with its 725 horsepowerlet’s put the controversy aside and see what the Maranello engineers have in store for us.

Ferrari Purosangue: there is space!

The first sensation that comes to mind when we look at this unidentified rolling object is amazement. How to remain indifferent in front of a vehicle marked with the Prancing Horse with same size!

O wheels, so large (22 inches at the front, 23 inches at the rear) contribute to this feeling of excess, while the wheel arches details (carbon optional, otherwise plastic) leave the upper body floating.

Even so, the drawing stay stylish. The Purosangue is, therefore, one of four doors, the ones of the rear opening antagonisticallyas opposed to the front doors.

Once both doors are open, we discover a well-kept living room where space is generous.

Two large sizes can cohabit one behind the other, rear passengers easily slide their feet under the front seats. Both front and back, you can sit in Purosangue without having to stoop too far. So it’s definitely not an SUV as we understand it…

Of course, this rolling living room is dressed to the nines, and the finishes are the most beautiful effect in the cabin.

Ferrari Purosangue: a new internal V12

Ufa! The Pure blood escaped the shock. At least for a while.

To tell you the truth, this one will be animated “only” by a Atmospheric V12at least until 2025 A brave choice these days. A choice that can only delight us as we systematically cry at the idea of ​​seeing such gems with their fascinating sounds disappear.

The engine block, advertised as completely new, is handmade inside the factory, in addition to the crankshaft, which is outsourced. The car is also made up of more than 80% new components.

derived from that of 812 Competitionthe 6.5L direct injection V12 is 65% open and placed in the front center position.

It offers two overhead camshafts operating in a forest of 48 valves and remains in a dry sump. The intake ducts were redesigned, as were most of the internal parts.

Same thing for the exhaust, for which engineers insisted on getting a manifold where each pipe is the same length. The sound will be optionally discrete in GT mode Where ” ironclad in Sports mode.

The new block therefore offers 725 hp at the 7,750 rpmassociated with a dual clutch gearbox 8 gears. More than enough power even to move the vehicle’s almost 2.2 tons!

Ferrari Purosangue: jewel of technology

The chassis is made from various types of aluminum (extruded or cast) with carbon reinforcements at the rear anchor points and windshield.

As standard, the roof is also made of carbon. But an option in electrosensitive film glass, lets you make it light or opaque on demand. If this type of roof is not new, it is nevertheless the first to have four independent elements that each passenger can adjust as they wish. A delight!

Finally, aerodynamics also benefited from a great deal of work on the part of engineers to optimize engine stability and cooling.

As we can see, the Purosangue is not only a beautiful template, but also a technology monster. Probably capable of making people forget their weight. Because with its 2,180kg on the scales with full tanks, it’s simply the heaviest Ferrari ever built.

Ferrari Purosangue: what price?
