The Ferrari Purosangue, which debuted on September 13th is the Italian marque’s first four-door car, and with its aggressive design and powerful power, it looks no less than a real Ferrari. When the Purosangue’s suicide doors open to reveal a four-seat configuration.
There’s no bench seat option here, and beyond that, while the Purosangue seems very roomy for passengers, its 16.7 cubic feet of cargo space means it needs to be lightly loaded for those weekend trips. The rear doors can be opened at an angle of at least 79 degrees making it easy to get in and out of the back seat.
Without the traditional two-seat SUV shape, the Purosangue looks like a swell sports car, bulging in all the right places, plus taking styling cues from the Roma and the new 296 GTB.
Ferrari is a master of mid-engine sports car balance, and it has worked hard to maintain that balance in the Purosangue SUV. The Purosangue is about the size of the Lamborghini Urus, which weighs 4,483 pounds.
The Purosangue uses a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine with 715 hp and 528 lb-ft of torque, mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. As an SUV, the Purosangue naturally has all-wheel drive.
However, there is also some electrification technology embedded in the Purosangue. Ferrari has developed 48-volt suspension technology through a partnership with the Canadian company Multimatic, which allows for active dampers and anti-roll control. SUV or not, the Purosangue must drive like a Ferrari.
It also costs like a Ferrari, with an estimated base price of around $400,000. The 2023 Purosangue will hit the road next year.
