Ferrari Purosangue has finally been revealed as the first SUV from the iconic sports car makers in a world largely moving towards a larger body type in vehicles. Slated to take on rivals like Bentley Bentayga, Lamborghini Urus, Maserati Levante, Porsche Cayenne and Aston Martin DBX, the Ferrari Purosangue SUV will be eventually manufactured in limited numbers as the company looks to maintain an exclusive clientele.

The Ferrari Purosangue isn't exactly following the bulky or boisterous body types and instead, leans on a crossover SUV design philosophy. The first-ever four-door, four-seater vehicle from Ferrari, the Purosangue is a manifestation of global trends that are leaning towards an SUV body type. While purists may have been averse to the idea of a sports car maker leaning towards the SUV body form, Ferrari appears to have struck a balance between a low-slung vehicle and a car that also has dominant road presence. For Ferrari though, the terminology may be muted. “We aren't calling it an SUV. We’re not even talking about SUVs" said Benedetto Vigna, Ferrari CEO.
