Although Louis Camilleri, the CEO of Ferrari, has emphasised that this product will not be an SUV, but a five-door model with an exterior design inspired by the coupes tells a different story.

As for the engines, there will be a hybrid version with turbo with six or eight cylinders,so you could enjoy powers close to 700 hp. That would mean the Ferrari Purosangue SUV will give Lamborghini Urus a run for its money.

The price of the Ferrari Purosangue SUV is likely to start from approximately300,000 euros ( 2.45 crore) to 500,000 euros( 4.10 crore).

Ferrari has already run into trouble over the name Purosangue. An anti-doping non-profit charity organisation Purosangue Foundation. Ferrari claims the charity 'has not made sufficient commercial use of the name to warrant exclusivity', and that the 'registration should be removed because of lack of use over the past five years'.
