The upcoming Purosangue needs an attitude adjustment.
There are a bunch of exciting new Ferrari models on the horizon, but the Ferrari Purosangue has to be the most anticipated of them all. A Ferrari SUV? Who would have thought? While the Purosangue continues to undergo testing, speculation as to what the final product will actually look like has been rife. What we can tell so far is that the Purosangue is influenced by the Ferrari Roma, but designer Dejan Hristov has taken a new spin on this groundbreaking new model by incorporating design elements from other current Ferrari models. The end result is called the "Simoom", after one of the most famous Arabian desert winds, and it looks awesome.
From what we've seen so far, the Ferrari Purosangue is a sleek-looking car that features a flowing design, as opposed to the edgy look of its rival the Lamborghini Urus. But what Hristov has created goes completely against the current design, and looks way more aggressive. The Simoom is more sporty thank to its more coupe-like silhouette, while the original B pillar has been swapped out for a sizable C pillar. The inclusion of suicide doors is an interesting choice.
The aero parts on this render are also impressive. The front-end features massive ducting on the hood, and the side vents look as if they run the length of the car between the wheels. At the rear, the slithers of taillight and twin exhausts look amazing, but good luck backing up, as there's no rear window to speak of.
Hristov doesn't mention what powers his creation, but the Purosangue will feature a glorious V12 engine that's expected to deliver around 800 horsepower, which should place it at the top of the super SUV podium power-wise. A hybrid V8 option is also anticipated to join later on. Ferrari's first SUV should go on sale in 2024, leaving a good amount of time for small design changes to take place.
