Ferrari Purosangue In Final Production Body Spied Testing
The Ferrari Purosangue has been in the works for 3 years now and the final production body looks like it’s ready.
Ferrari has been releasing a new model every few months ever since it was spun off from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), but the most hotly anticipated model, the company’s first SUV, has yet to be launched. Rumours have been spinning for months, and the company has confirmed that they are indeed working on an SUV called the Purosangue (Pureblood in Italian). Now we finally have spy shots emerging that show the Purosangue in its final form on what appears to be GTC4 Lusso wheels.
In fact, the Ferrari Purosangue is set to replace the GTC4 Lusso when it arrives with a transversely-mounted front engine and a similar silhoutte.
Many of the early spyshot of the Purosangue had it with either a GTC4 Lusso body or a Maserati Levante body. Now it appears to be just a few steps away from a production body and there’s a likelihood that the front headlights and grille will resemble the Ferrari Roma. We particularly like @superrenderscars interpretation of the Purosangue but we won’t be surprised if the funal product looks a little more over-the-top, perhaps even with rear-hinged doors, as some rumours suggest. We also feel like the coupé roofline will be a little different to accomodate chauffer-driven clientele. The ride height will probably be as low as the renders suggest. So it’ll be more like a crossover than a SUV.
Besides having the Ferrari Roma’s face, the Purosangue will also sit on the same platform as the Roma. There’s a chance the engines will be electrified V6 and/or naturally-aspirated V12 option with all-wheel drive of course.
The Purosangue has been in development since at least 2017, which was when Lamborghini first debuted their first SUV, the Urus. It remains to be seen if Ferrari can compete in this arena with Porsche being 3 whole generations ahead of them too.
