By now, we know that Ferrari is planning to join the performance SUV club, as it is a well-known fact that Ferrari is developing the

the first Ferrari SUV ever. It is believed that the design will be heavily influenced by the Ferrari Roma. However, Dejan Hristov – an avid graphic designer and evident car enthusiast – has shared his take on what a Ferrari SUV should look like. Meet the Ferrari Simoom, named after one of the most famous desert winds.

What the designer has done is ingenious.

He took some design elements from various Ferrari models and mashed them together, creating something truly unique.

The SUV boasts a coupe-like design. Actually, it almost looks like a super sedan that has been raised.

The car looks like it has been shaped by the elements. We see a front end that’s slightly reminiscent of the F-12 Berlinetta and 812 Superfast. The side profile looks crisp and incorporates luscious forms, especially around the wheel arches. At the rear, we get what we assume is the rear hatch, shaped like the SF90 engine cover. The taillights are heavily inspired by those of the Roma.

Despite the high clearance, the design suggests plenty of performance – just like it should be in a Ferrari.

Among the key design features are the coupe-like design, the massive C-pillar, suicide rear doors, plenty of aerodynamic elements and vents, a “dynamic trunk lid” that acts as both a rear windshield and an active spoiler.

Dejan Hristov has definitely given us a completely new take on what a Ferrari SUV should look like. Frankly, although the Purrosangue renderings look good in their own right, we think Dejan’s vision is truer to the original Ferrari philosophy. It’s less sedated and more wild and unapologetic. The Simoom is more flamboyant, more in your face, and this is what a Ferrari should be.

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
