We’re pretty sure that not too long ago that Ferrari wasn’t too keen on entering the new highly competitive world of Sports Utility Vehicles but seeing what’s been brought to the market over the years and the likelihood of very good sales, the Italian automaker announced their commencement of an SUV that would wear the prancing horse badge. Sister company Maserati Levante and so we all thought that the Ferrari incarnation would be similar and would likely employ the same kind of architecture as well as the 432 kW (580 hp) V8 powerplant. We all thought wrong, very wrong. The overnight release of the car was more impressive than expected, those spy shots seen over the last few months didn’t point to an SUV as cool as what we now see. It makes sense that the styling and dimensions of the SUV would be almost outlandish, it needed to have that ‘wow’ factor thanks in-part to the millionaires of the world clambering to purchase rival company Lamborghini’s Urus SUV. The Maranello offering needed to not only compete on every level, but be better.
The Ferrari Purosangue will go on sale for an estimated R7 000 000 (ex taxes and shipping) or $400 000 in world market money. We can't wait to spot these on our roads, and are very keen to see what the aftermarket world creates for these Italian SUVs.
Take a look at the YouTube video from the folk at Ferrari that gives an overview of the Italian automaker's first attempt at an SUV that resulted in this monster V12 Purosangue: Introducing the new Ferrari Purosangue | Ferrari
