February 13, 2024

As a pioneer of high-end automotive performance and the epitome of luxury and elegance, Ferrari has always exceeded the expectations of car connoisseurs and enthusiasts. The Italian brand is one of the best-known and most successful teams in motorsport for good reason. With its latest development, the Scuderia family has once again outdone itself: The car manufacturer's very first four-door car is based on a unique symbiosis of powerful innovation and ground-breaking design, bringing their years of experience from the racetrack directly to the road. Curtain up for Purosangue.

A car of superlatives

When it came to the construction of an in-house off-roader, the internal Ferrari ranks were skeptical for years. For both Sergio Marchionne, who led the company from 2014 to 2018, and Louis Camilleri, CEO from 2018 to 2020, conventional SUVs were hardly a good fit for the brand under any circumstances. However, the latter was enthusiastic about the idea of developing a model that could shine with sheer revolutionary power and a unique look, while still being aimed at the masses and carrying Ferrari's DNA behind the wheel. 


Performance of the future

The new Purosangue deliberately sets itself apart from conventional GT models (crossovers and SUVs) with its athletic architecture, new layout and innovative proportions. For example, the powerful twelve-cylinder naturally aspirated engine is not located in the front section of the body, but is instead designed as a front-mid engine behind the front axle. The dual-clutch gearbox is located on the rear axle of the vehicle for a sportier weight distribution. 

Purosangue needs just 3.3 seconds to reach the 100 km/h threshold. It accelerates to 200 km/h in just 10.6 seconds. An impressive 725 hp are just as much a part of the car's technical hallmarks as its low weight, the Power Transfer Unit on the front-wheel drive and a whole range of dynamic driving control systems.


Quite petite

While Purosangue comes across as a real powerhouse behind the wheel, visually it focuses on less is more. Weighing just 2,033 kilograms at just under 5 meters, it's a real lightweight compared to its super-luxury competitors. For the silhouette, the designers opted for delicate and soft lines.
