LEAKED! This Is The New Ferrari Purosangue SUV

Leaked / 34 Comments

Is it better or worse than you expected?

Though Ferrari would prefer you not call it an SUV, the Italian supercar maker is close to releasing its first utility vehicle. The 2022 Ferrari Purosangue will enter production later this year before reaching customers in 2023, but before it gets revealed, the car has been spotted testing around Maranello wearing heavy camouflage. The disguised test mules gave us a great idea of what the first Ferrari SUV will look like, but now a leaked image from the factory floor fills in the gaps previously left to our imaginations.

It may not be the best photo, but we now know exactly what the Purosangue looks like from the front. Judging by the factory setting with two other Ferrari models visible in the background, this leaked image appears to be the real deal. Perhaps the leak came from the same person who spotted the Dodge Hornet in a different Italian factory.

Straight away, the Purosangue doesn't look like a conventional SUV with regard to ride height. If anything, it prints more like a slightly lifted hatchback, not unlike the current crop of EV crossovers such as the Ford Mustang Mach-E, Hyundai Ioniq 5, Kia EV6, and Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo. Perhaps that's why Ferrari was so adamant that the Purosangue isn't an SUV, but rather an FUV (Ferrari utility vehicle).

The front end styling is reminiscent of the Roma, especially the headlights. This is far from a criticism, as the Roma might be the best-looking Ferrari since the 458.

This particular example has painted wheel arches that differ from the main body color, making the Purosangue seem more rugged than the model it replaces, the GTC4Lusso.

Under the hood, the Purosangue will likely use the same 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 engine used in other Ferrari models including the Roma and F8 Tributo. Rumors indicate the Purosangue may also get a V12 variant producing nearly 800 horsepower, though this is unconfirmed. Like the old FF and GTC4 models, the Purosangue should get Ferrari's unique all-wheel-drive system. We should receive more official details later this year.
