Following several teasers, Ferrari has finally whipped the wraps off the Purosangue, the first-ever four-door four-seater from the Prancing Horse brand’s stable. 

According to the Maranello-based manufacturer, “To enable [us] to achieve the ambitious goals set for this project and create a car worthy of a place in its range, a completely different layout and innovative proportions compared to modern GT archetypes (so-called crossovers and SUVs) were adopted.” Indeed, Ferrari doesn’t call it a crossover/SUV. 

The Ferrari Purosangue is equipped with Ferrari’s V12 engine. The mid-front-mounted 6.5-litre unit produces 533 kW and 716 Nm of torque (available from 7 750 r/min and 6 250 r/min, respectively), making it 13 kW more powerful than the Aston Martin’s DBX707, which, until now, was the most powerful luxury SUV in the world (if you consider the Purosangue as an SUV). However, for reference, the pinnacle DBX produces 900 Nm. 

The firm says 80 per cent of torque is available “even at low revs [2 100 r/min] for unique driving pleasure at all times”. The Ferrari’s naturally aspirated motor directs power and torque to all four corners via an eight-speed F1 dual-clutch transmission. The latter unit is mounted in front of the engine to provide a “unique” 4×4 gearbox. Thanks to this configuration, the Italian carmaker says the Purosangue has a 49:51 weight distribution, which its engineers deemed optimal for a mid-front-engined sports car. 

Ferrari says the Purosangue’s intake, timing and exhaust systems have been “completely” redesigned. The cylinder heads are derived from the 812 Competizione.

But what about performance figures? Well, the carmaker says the Purosangue sprints to 100 km/h from a standstill in 3.3 seconds. The 0-200 km/h time comes at 10.6 seconds. The top speed is rated at more than 310 km/h.

The front 398 mm and rear 380 mm brakes bring the car to a halt from 100-0 km/h over a distance of 32.8 metres and to a standstill from 200 km/h over a distance of 129 metres. 

The Purosangue’s bodyshell is fashioned from various materials, including high-strength steel, aluminium and carbon fibre. The single-shell roof is also made from the latter lightweight material (a full-length electrochromic glass roof is also available). 

The four-door Ferrari measures 4 973 mm bow to stern, 2 028 mm in width, 1 589 mm in height and 3 018 mm between the fore and aft axles. Ferrari claims it tips the scales at 2 033 kg (dry). 

Opening the suicide doors reveals that Purosangue’s cabin takes a driver-focused approach. The interior is based on a dual-cockpit dashboard concept. The driver’s side takes inspiration from the SF90 Stradale. A large digital instrument binnacle is situated in front of the driver. A 10.2-inch screen can be found on the front passenger’s side. Ferrari claims a boot capacity of 473 litres.
