Video: take a closer look at the new £300k+ Ferrari Purosangue
Ferrari's 715bhp not-an-SUV is finally here, and it's quite special indeed
Ferrari once said it would never build an SUV. So what does that make this four-wheel drive newcomer: the Purosangue? In Ferrari’s words, it’s not an SUV or a crossover – it’s a sports car. The first four-door four-seater in Maranello’s history, standing 1,589mm tall. A Range Rover will tower over this like an oak tree.
Thanks to a 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12 mounted behind the front axle under that enormous clamshell bonnet, you’ve got a titanic 715bhp and 528lb ft to enjoy on your way to 8,250rpm. Ferrari says the definitely-not-an-SUV can hit 62mph from rest in 3.3 seconds, scorch from 0-124mph in just 10.6 seconds and top out beyond 192mph. Performance-wise, it’s a supercar.
