Ferrari Purosangue Reveals Its Production Body

Ferrari Purosangue, finally in its own skins. The latest test mules get production bodies

The automotive world is a dynamic one and Ferrari embodies that quite well. Back in 2014, Ferrari said it will not bother with making an SUV. Fast-forward to nowadays and the Italian brand’s first “Ferrari Utility Vehicle” is nearing production state. Moreover, recent spy footage revealed the Ferrari Purosangue’s production body.

This is the first time, we gaze upon the real body of the Ferrari Purosangue. Earlier test mules had chopped off Maserati Levante bodies and a GTC4 Lusso test mule was used for suspension testing. Now we get the real deal, even if it’s heavily camouflaged. Despite being heavily wrapped, we get a good idea of the Purosangue’s proportions.

As it is, the prototype gives the impression of a smaller vehicle. However, rumors suggest it will be around five meters in length, so it will be more than comparable to the Lamborghini Urus and Porsche Panamera Coupe. We would never expect Ferrari to make a traditional SUV, which is why we are not surprised to see the sloped, fastback-style rear end, which almost looks like a raised sedan. If you are curious about how that would look, you can check out this rendering of a Roma/Purosangue hybrid.

Given Ferrari’s initial reluctance to enter the SUV market, as well as its proud racing heritage, it’s no surprise that the Purosangue looks more like a high-riding sports car than a proper SUV. The front end is sharper, like on any other Ferrari, and much more sloped than any other high-performance SUV.

Whether or not the Ferrari Purosangue will have everything it needs in order to be competitive on the market, remains to be seen. While there are many interesting facts regarding Ferrari’s first SUV, we at least have a good idea of how it’s going to look. The model will arrive as a 2023 model, so we expect a debut sometime in 2022. Initially, the Purosangue is said to arrive with a V-12, but V-6 and V-8 plug-in hybrids and even fully electric versions will follow suit.

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
