The Italian manufacturer of sports and racing cars Ferrari is preparing to create its own SUV.
The model, presumably, will be called Purosangue, which means "purebred" in Italian. It is expected that the premiere of the first SUV in the Ferrari lineup may take place in late 2021 or early 2022.
It is noteworthy that earlier head of Ferrari Louis Carey Camilleri said that the company does not want the word "SUV" applied to the brand. Thus. This week, render images of the future car, which is expected to become one of the main competitors of the Lamborghini Urus, appeared on the network.
The first SUV from Ferrari will receive the Italian brand's signature style and a new Front Mid Engine platform. The car will combine the luxury of the Italian automotive giant with a sporty design. At the same time, information about possible power plants for the SUV, as well as other details of the future project, are not disclosed. According to some reports, Ferrari Purosangue can get a hybrid engine with electric motors.
The Lamborghini Urus, based on the Volkswagen MLB evo platform, was officially unveiled in December 2017. The SUV is equipped with a 4-liter V8 engine manufactured by Audi, with a capacity of 650 hp. The cost of a car in Russia starts from 15 million rubles.
