Ferrari Purosangue to be unveiled on September 13: Check features
Ferrari is all set to unveil its first-ever SUV, the Purosangue, on September 13 for the global markets. The vehicle will open a new chapter for the Italian supercar marque and compete against the likes of Lamborghini Urus and Porsche Cayenne. The upcoming four-wheeler has been spotted doing test runs near the brand's Maranello facility in recent months, albeit in a camouflaged avatar.
Why does this story matter?
- Ferrari has been known for creating some of the finest V8 and V12 engines throughout its history.
- The supercar maker is foraying into the world of performance SUVs with the Purosangue which means thoroughbred.
- However, the company has a steep challenge to overcome in form of Lamborghini Urus, which has been doing good sales numbers since its debut in 2018.
Here's how the Ferrari Purosangue will sound on the road
The SUV will flaunt a muscular bonnet and sleek headlights
The Ferrari Purosangue will have a coupe-like sloping roofline and flaunt a long, muscular bonnet, sleek LED headlights with DRLs, a raked windscreen, an air splitter, and a wide air dam. On the sides, the SUV will be flanked by ORVMs, flared wheel arches, and blacked-out designer wheels. LED taillamps, a diffuser, and quad exhaust tips will be available at the rear end.
It will be backed by a V12 engine
The technical specifications of the upcoming Purosangue are yet to be revealed by Ferrari. However, we expect the four-wheeler to be powered by a 6.5-liter, naturally-aspirated, V12 engine, along with a mild-hybrid system. Transmission duties should be taken care of by a DCT gearbox.
It will feature a sporty cabin with premium leather upholstery
The interiors of the Ferrari Purosangue are under the wraps. However, we expect the SUV to feature a sporty four/five-seater cabin with a minimalist dashboard, premium leather upholstery, racing-type bucket seats, a panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting, a multifunctional steering wheel with paddle shifters, a digital instrument cluster, and a large infotainment system. Passengers' safety should be ensured by multiple airbags and ADAS functions.
Ferrari Purosangue: Pricing
The details regarding the pricing and availability of the Purosangue will likely be announced by Ferrari on September 13. We expect the SUV to carry a price tag of around Rs. 3 crore (ex-showroom) in India.
