The reveal of Ferrari‘s first-ever SUV is just around the corner now. In fact, it’s less than a week away.
The Italian carmaker has confirmed it’s revealing the Purosangue – Italian for pure-blooded or thoroughbred – on September 13, ahead of production starting later this year and deliveries starting in 2023.
Ferrari also uploaded a 15-second teaser video on social media, complete with the sound of the Purosangue accelerating playing in the background.
There’s also a shadowy glimpse at the Purosangue itself from the front, giving us a look at the SUV’s daytime running light signature.
We already have a good idea what the production SUV will look like thanks to countless spied prototypes, a leaked patent image, a previously leaked example, as well as an official teaser image of the front.
Overall, the Ferrari Purosangue has a high-riding ‘coupe SUV’ silhouette with sweeping lines and grand tourer elements, and bears some similarities to the 812 Superfast and GTC4Lusso from some angles.
Up front there are split headlights like the plug-in hybrid SF90 supercar, as well as a large air intake mounted low on the front fascia.
Around the side, the Purosangue has large alloy wheels, aerodynamic flush-fitting door handles, as well as a number of sharp creases and prominent hips.
At the back there are four separate tail light units, which is a design cue that features on current-generation Ferrari models like the Roma.
There are also quad exhaust pipes, a number of air vents and a prominent rear diffuser.
Ferrari recently confirmed the Purosangue will be available with a V12 engine. CarExpert understands the Purosangue will be available with additional powertrains as well.
The engine in the Purosangue will be mated to a dual-clutch transmission located at the rear.
The Ferrari Purosangue will seat up to four passengers and will be based on a new front mid-engine architecture.
Earlier in 2022 Ferrari said it will manage the exclusivity of the Purosangue as it does with its existing models.
The brand confirmed it won’t ramp up production to meet the expected demand, and will keep the SUV at 20 per cent of its annual vehicle shipments over its lifecycle.
“It will now be another range model, and even now with our range models there is not endless supply. So we will be very careful to balance that properly,” said President of Ferrari Far East and Middle East Dieter Knechtel.
