Default Ferrari Purosangue - Ferrari's new SUV to launch in 2022

Ferrari has announced the name of its first SUV (or crossover). It's Purosangue – which translates to 'thoroughbred' in Italian.

Quote:
Buyers will be able to choose between a purely internal combustion engine or a hybrid. It'll be the brand's first-ever vehicle with a five-door body but will feature a coupe-inspired shape. In terms of size, the machine won't be as big as the competing Lamborghini Urus.

The Purosangue will ride on Ferrari's new Front Mid Engine Architecture (above). The setup will feature a front-mounted engine that will be behind the wheels, and a dual-clutch gearbox will be at the rear. This setup will provide a better weight distribution. The platform will support all-wheel drive, and hybrids will exert their electric boost to the back wheels.

Speaking of multiple vehicles, Ferrari has a load of them planned for the next few years. Camilleri said in his presentation that Ferrari will launch 15 new models by 2022.

And we thought 'Pista' was the worse that Ferrari could do!

In case anyone is wondering, this is pronounced 'purrrro-song-way'.

Really hope they find a proper name by the time it hits production.

I have a feeling this is going to end up being a 'neither here nor there' model, body-shape wise - to stay away from the SUV label.

Something like the Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo Concept

All the Ferrari purists can stay away from this news, but they better realise it's good for the company. Truth is, the money earned from the Porsche Cayenne leads to a better 911 & Cayman. The world has moved to SUVs and not even Lamborghini or Ferrari can stay away from them, as blasphemous as it may sound.

This class of car will add to the top line and more than that, the bottom line (FAT profits). As seen with Porsche, that'll bring even better sports cars.

No one will buy it then, Ferrari is smart enough to realise that. It has to be SUV'ish.
