New pics show a fairly standard-looking crossover with some distinctly "Ferrari" touches.
News about the forthcoming Ferrari Purosangue has become more frequent of late as the Italian supercar marque's first-ever utility vehicle marches closer to production. Just recently, spy photographers managed to capture a Purosangue test mule in Ferrari's hometown of Maranello wearing a Maserati Levante body, and new rumors regarding its powertrain have begun floating around, maintaining that a string of gas-only, hybrid, and even pure-electric models is on the way.
Yet to this day, the Ferrari Roma-inspired styling of the company's first utility vehicle remains a closely guarded secret, leaving us to speculate as to exactly what the Purosangue might look like. Perhaps a new batch of renderings is in order.
The renderings seen here by KDesign show a fairly typical-looking modern, sleek crossover utility vehicle with an aggressive Ferrari face, a sporty ducktail rear spoiler, and some F12-like lines along the bodysides. The overall shape and proportions seem to share a lot with the Maserati Levante, although it's unclear how likely that is to be the case on the production Purosangue; the Levante is based on the same platform as the Jeep Grand Cherokee, but Ferrari's utility vehicle won't be.
The Ferrari Purosangue is expected to be revealed in 2021 before launching early-on the following year. In the past, Ferrari has referred to the forthcoming model as an "FUV," or "Ferrari Utility Vehicle," making clear that the automaker is placing a stronger emphasis on the sound, performance, aesthetics, and driving experience more than most automakers might. That helps explain why the Purosangue will only have seating for up to four adults, not five, and why the utility vehicle is rumored to be getting an 800-horsepower version of Ferrari's excellent V12 gasoline engine.
Will it look anything like these new renderings from KDesign AG? Only time will tell.
