the family car according to Ferrari

In the making for a very (very) long time at Ferrari, the very first four-door, four-seater car from the Italian brand was eagerly awaited. Very recently, it was within the Teatro del Silenzio located in Lajatico, in the province of Pisa, that the Italian manufacturer lifted the veil on its new creation: Purosangue. A family car that promises to combine increased space with the company’s famous performance.

Side look, this new Ferrari Purosangue oscillates between the station wagon and the SUV, although the manufacturer does not use this name at any time. For Ferrari, the Purosangue is a vehicle derived from “of a new segment“, which is characterized in particular by rear-hinged passenger doors. According to Ferrari, this allows the passenger to get in and out of the car with ease without having to increase the size of the vehicle.

Under the hood is a 725bhp 6.5-litre V12 engine (without the slightest trace of electrification here), painstakingly tuned to give the driver seemingly endless power under his right foot, with a dual-clutch transmission at eight speeds and cylinder heads derived from the formidable 812 Competizione. Enough to go from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.3 seconds, and from 0 to 200 km/h in a record time of 10.2 seconds.

Ferrari also promises a vehicle “durable“, since 85% of the car’s launch finishes were produced with this in mind. Also, the fabric headlining is made from recycled polyester, the carpet is made from recycled polyamide from fishing nets recovered from the oceans and the newly formulated Alcantara is also made from recycled polyester.

On board, the driver’s compartment inspired by the SF90 Stradale remains in the DNA of the Ferrari sports car. Note that the front passenger can also enjoy a dedicated 10.2” screen displaying performance figures in real time. That of the driver of course displays the counters, as well as the duplication of the smartphone thanks to Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.

On the availability side, Ferrari will play the exclusivity card, with a Purosangue which will be produced in limited quantities, with the first deliveries scheduled for the second quarter of 2023. On the price side, this new SUV Ferrari vehicle should be displayed from €390,000.
