Despite carrying the body style of an SUV, Ferrari has refrained from calling it an SUV. Instead, it has dubbed the Purosangue as n FUV or Ferrari Utility Vehicle. It appears more like a large hatchback with limited ground clearance. The car can be termed as the spiritual successor of the FF or GTC4Lusso.
Considering that the 456GT Venice wagon was limited to only seven units, the Purosangue is going to be Ferrari's first widely available four-door model. Speaking about the mechanical details, Ferrari has not revealed much of it. However, it has been confirmed that the car will come with air suspension and all-wheel drive while sitting on an architecture that has been built to accommodate a hybrid powertrain. It will come with a dual-clutch automatic transmission and offer a four-seater cabin. It will also offer more space to the occupants, as compared to the previous shooting brake-styled models.
Ferrari Purosangue is going to face stiff competition as it is a late entrant in the segment, where already several models are present. These include Aston Martin DBX, Bentley Bentayga Speed etc. The customer delivery for the Ferrari Purosangue is expected to commence in 2023.
