Ferrari Purosangue with 725 hp, 6.5L NA V12 engine to rival Lamborghini Urus and Bentley Bentayga

Ferrari has finally revealed the highly-anticipated Purosangue, the first ever four-door, four-seater car in the Prancing Horse’s 75-year history. The Purosangue will directly rival the likes of Lamborghini Urus and Bentley Bentayga, however, Ferrari is refraining from calling its newest offering an SUV.
Ferrari says that the Purosangue has a mid-front-mounted engine with the gearbox at the rear, which creates a sporty transaxle layout. This delivers a 49%(front):51%(rear) weight distribution that Maranello’s engineers believe are optimal for a mid-front-engined sports car. Powering the sports car is a 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine that belts out 725 hp of power at 7,750 rpm and 716 Nm of torque at 6,250 rpm.
With a dry weight of 2033 kg, the Purosangue is actually the heftiest Ferrari car ever built. However, the company claims that the performance is no short of what is expected from a Prancing Horse. The four-door, four-seat sports car can dash from 0 to 100 kmph in just 3.3 seconds, and 0 – 200 kmph in 10.6 seconds, with a top speed in excess of 310 kmph. The transmission duties are taken care of by an 8-speed DCT.


The Ferrari Purosangue gets rear-hinged suicide doors which are fully powered and open to 73 degrees. It gets two individual seats at the back, with a rear centre console in the middle. The 473 litre boot capacity makes it the largest boot ever seen on a Ferrari and the rear seats fold to increase the luggage space.
The equipment on offer with the Ferrari Purosangue includes a full-length electrochromic glass roof (optional), 10 airbags, an air quality sensor, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, a Burmester 3D High-End Surround Sound System, Hill Descent Control, as well as ADAS features such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Automatic Emergency Brake System, Auto High Beam, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Traffic Sign Recognition, Driver Drowsiness and Attention, and a rear-view parking camera.


Ferrari had also previously revealed that the Purosangue’s production will be limited to not more than 20 per cent of the company’s total annual deliveries. On that note, the deliveries for the Ferrari Purosangue are expected to commence sometime next year. An India launch is also expected by the end of 2023.
