The Ferrari Thoroughbred stripped off the modified bodywork taken from the Maserati Levante in late November, when a prototype was first seen with a production-like bodywork.
Now below you will find a new spy video of the Prancing Horse SUV, which continues to hide completely under the camouflages, but this could mean that the definitive (or almost) bodywork of the Purosangue is hidden underneath.
The raised Cavallino will arrive
The Ferrari Thoroughbred it does not look like the typical high-performance SUV, but more than anything else it seems to be positioned along the lines of an oversized hatchback – a bit like what happened for the Lamborghini Urus.
Technically it will not be the first four-door Ferrari if we take the concept into consideration Pinin of 1980 and the 456 Venice – sedan and wagon – built for the Sultan of Brunei in the 1990s. However, the Cavallino SUV will be the first production model for Maranello to have rear doors.
It could take some time, especially for the brand’s most diehard fans, to get used to the idea of a Ferrari so high off the ground. Yet an SUV was inevitable: a new stream of economic revenue could not be ignored in a segment that is so popular with buyers today, especially if most sports brands already have an SUV in the range.
The Ferrari Purosangue will rival not only the aforementioned Urus, but also the Aston Martin DBX, the Bentley Bentayga Speed, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT and, in a sense, the upcoming BMW XM.
What do we know so far
Being a prototype still in development – moreover heavily disguised – it is very difficult to glimpse the great focal points of the Purosangue, but something can already be noticed. Starting from the void around the four exhausts: the bumper may already be definitive in the forms, but perhaps some are missing. massive terminals.
Also at the rear there is a cutout in the tailgate that will surely have a reason to exist, but there doesn’t seem to be a third stop. There may be a camera, or just the opening handle.
A few LED daytime running lights can be seen poking out through the camouflage on the front bumper, and appear to sit above sturdy air intakes. And finally the rims will most likely be different and much larger in size.
Then there is the question of the rear doors: if their presence on a Ferrari is already surprising, the position of the handles suggests a system of windward opening, like on the Rolls-Royce Cullinan.
The new Ferrari platform It will front-mount the engines originally mounted in the center, all linked to a dual-clutch gearbox with support for all-wheel drive. There will be air suspension and hybrid powertrain: there is talk of electrified V6 and V8, with rumors that also speak of a V12 tip.
The interior will have a special rear seat entertainment system (strange to say “rear seats” for a Ferrari).
In general, we expect the Purosangue to appeal more than average even to convinced anti-SUVs, a bit like the Urus already did. All that remains is to wait for its official debut – it should take place during 2022, probably after the launch of the 296 GTS Convertible scheduled for the first half of next year.
