Can the Ferrari Purosangue SUV Really Be a "True Sports Car?"

Can the Ferrari Purosangue SUV Really Be a "True Sports Car?"

The world loves SUVs, and Ferrari knows this very well, but will the Purosangue be a true sports car?

The Ferrari Purosangue is due to be unveiled this September, and it will possess a V-12, one of the last remaining new cars to come with such an engine as the world continues to shift towards electrification. However, with Ferrari now following everyone else in the supercar realm, such as Aston Martin with the DBX and Lamborghini with the Urus in making an SUV, will the Purosangue be a true sports car?

Hear the Ferrari Purosangue’s V-12 Pur Like a Kitten on Public Roads

Ferrari’s first SUV should deliver in excess of 800 horsepower, and you can hear every pony

Back in March, Ferrari dropped the first teaser image of its future SUV along with the confirmation that some of the rumors about the Purosangue are true. Then, at the beginning of May, a Twitter post confirmed that in a world where everybody is going for electrification, the Purosangue will have a V-12 engine. While details about this specific V-12 are still limited, a video posted by Youtube user varryx gives us a very good idea of what the engine will sound like, and boy oh boy does it sound amazing!

The Ferrari Purosangue Straight Up Needed A V-12 Engine

The Ferrari Purosangue Straight Up Needed A V-12 Engine

Ferrari’s CEO implies that there just wasn’t another logical option because exclusivity is key

Right in the midst of the one-off Ferrari SP48 Unica being revealed, Ferrari released a social posting and a new webpage hinting at a new V-12 engine along with the phrase “Heart of a Thoroughbred.” Ferrari was quite vague about the engine otherwise, however, ’Purosangue’ translates to ’thoroughbred’ in Italian, so it was easy to draw a line between the two. The engine could have also been for the production version of this GT Chassis that was spotted testing in late April, but now we know for sure this V-12 will at least land in the Purosangue first.

The Ferrari SP48 Unica is Evolutionary Bliss

The Ferrari SP48 Unica is Evolutionary Bliss

The Ferrari SP48 Unica is an epic one-off, built for a very special client and you will never see another one like it ever

Almost everything that comes out of the Prancing horse’s "breeding grounds" can be called special. That said, it’s Ferrari’s Special Projects division that is responsible for the most unique and exclusive Ferrari models ever made, and the Italian carmaker just gave us another one. The Ferrari SP48 Unica is, as the name suggests, a one-off. It shares a platform with the F8 Tributo, but that’s where the similarities end.

Few things are as straightforward as pitting two very fast cars against each other in a drag race.

Needless to say, the two cars are very different, so it should be an interesting race.

Ferrari’s First SUV, The Purosangue, Spotted On The Street With Some Interesting Details

The Purosangue Is one of the most-talked-about, anticipated vehicles in recent times, and it has been spotted with a different, not-so-thick camouflage

Even if Ferrari didn’t offer us an official launch date for the future Purosangue, we do know that it will be revealed later in 2022. In fact, we already know what the luxury SUV will look like as the company officially dropped a pretty revealing teaser image, but we also have some leaked images that offer us a very good look at Ferrari’s first SUV.

Ferrari engineers are busy doing the final testing and adjustments on the Purosangue before its much-anticipated launch. A new prototype has been caught testing, and, unlike the previous ones, this one is wearing a different camouflage.

Did The... Did The BMW M5 CS Just Beat The Ferrari 812 In A Drag Race?!?!

Did The... Did The BMW M5 CS Just Beat The Ferrari 812 In A Drag Race?!?!

This unlikely combination of a practical performance four-door sedan and an Italian supercar has given us a race we didn’t know we needed!

Drag races are almost always fun, and they are absolutely ridiculous when a weird pairing makes for one cracker of a race. Mat Watson from Carwow did that when he got a BMW M5 CS to the drag strip to go up against the Ferrari 812. Both these are cars are completely different from each other – one’s got a naturally aspirated V-12 and the other a twin-turbo V-8; one’s a practical four-door daily driver, and the other, a garage queen and a weekend supercar. But, when they met on the drag strip, all hell broke loose.

The Ferrari Purosangue Comes Out In The Open To Show Everyone It’s Not A Traditional SUV

These winter testing spy shots show that the Purosangue will be in a niche of its own when it comes out

We’ve already seen a series of spy shots revealing the production body of the future Ferrari Purosangue - a model referred to as an FUV (“Ferrari Utility Vehicle”), because it definitely doesn’t have the actual shape of an SUV.

Now, the FUV was caught testing once again, wearing the same heavy camouflage, but this time it was playing in the snow.

Would You Pay Six-Figures For A 1962 Ferrari 250 GTE With A Chevrolet LT1 Engine?

Would You Pay Six-Figures For A 1962 Ferrari 250 GTE With A Chevrolet LT1 Engine?

And many other changes to accommodate the new engine!

When launched back in 1962, the 250 GTE was powered by a 3.0-liter V-12 engine that delivered a total of 237 horsepower and 193 pound-feet of torque. At launch, the car was priced at $12,600, and right now, at auction, you can find them selling for as much as $400,000.

But what happens when you swap the V-12 engine, and go for a Chevrolet LT1 V-8 engine? A 250 GTE powered by a V-8 engine is now listed on Bring a Trailer and the current bid is $125,000 - that’s what.

2021 Ferrari Roma By Novitec

Novitec adds an extra 72 horsepower and improves the exterior look of the Roma

Ferrari Roma is a front-engined, 2+2 grand tourer that came to attack on cars like Aston Martin DB11. For a Ferrari priced a little over $220k it had enough power and looks to actually put competition in real trouble. As it was to be expected, the car caught Novitec’s attention who decided there is room for more power under the hood.

Drag Race: Ferrari GTC4 Lusso vs Bentley Continental GT Convertible

Two very different luxury cars go head to head on the drag strip. Will the Bentley’s torque prevail over the Ferrari’s lightness?

Special Treatment? Italy Seeks Exemption From EU Engine Ban for Ferrari and Lamborghini

Italy wants Ferrari and Lamborghini to be excluded from the ban on internal combustion engines

The European Union’s comprehensive ban on combustion engines is set to go into force in 2035, but the Italian government is hoping for an exception for supercar makers.

This Rare 550 Barchetta Is The Last Front-Engined V-12 Ferrari!

A rare 2001 Ferrari 550 Barchetta is looking for its new owner, and it’s a prime example of a car that could seriously increase in value.

It goes without saying that we are spoiled for choice when it comes to future classic cars.

Because of this, most modern cars will not appreciate nor become desirable collector’s items. Because of this cars like this rare Ferrari 550 Barchetta are bound to appreciate even more. Luckily, you can still pick them up relatively affordable (for a rare exotic car).

10 Things the Ferrari Purosangue Needs to Take on the Competition

10 Things the Ferrari Purosangue Needs to Take on the Competition

It Is Not An SUV, But It Is A Ferrari Utility Vehicle

Ferrari will build an SUV. I am not joking, the company made an announcement. It will be called the Ferrari Purosangue. That’s the official name of the Ferrari SUV. Ok, Ferrari CEO Louis Camilleri implicitly said that he does not want to hear “that word” in the same sentence with the word Ferrari. “That word” being SUV. Ok, Camilleri, I will not do it. Ever. The new Ferrari... truck… will be the most amazing piece of technology ever attempted with the “that word” layout. Luckily, we do know a thing or two about the new Purosangue.

Digression: Is the word crossover any better? Maybe, but I feel it sounds too soft for the status of a Ferrari. The Honda CR-V is a crossover for crying out loud.

The new Purosangue may take a layout similar to what we have been accustomed to with the onslaught of performance SUVs, yet the Italians promised to make it a proper thoroughbred. Incidentally (not really), Purosangue translated from Italian actually means thoroughbred. Is it just me, or the name Ferrari Thoroughbred (in English) wouldn’t sound bad at all? We have a Superfast and we like it, don’t we? Enough with the strange ideas. Purosangue it is.

Christopher Smith of Motor1 explained how to pronounce it:

“PUR-o-SAN-gue. There are four syllables, with emphasis on PUR and SAN. Phonetically speaking, start with PUR, as in a cat purring. From there just say a soft O as in oh, then SAN with a long A sound like saahn, and finish with GUE, which sounds like way but starting with a g – gway. PURR - oh - SAAHN - gway. See? It’s totally easy.”

OK? OK!

The Ferrari Portofino M – Taking On The Heavy Hitters With Italian Attitude

The Ferrari Portofino M was born to put the competition in check

Despite very similar looks, the same engine, and similar pricing, Ferrari is cutthroat serious that the Portofino (and the new Portofino M) is not just a convertible version of the Roma. We could probably argue this point all day long, but we’re not here to argue today. Instead, we’re here to talk about why the Ferrari Portofino exists, and if you’re thinking that it’s to bring back customers of the Ferrari California and California T, then you’re only half right. So, what’s the Portofino M’s primary purpose then?
