Ferrari‘s first SUV has been shedding its camouflage ahead of its reveal later this month.
The Purosangue – Italian for pure-blooded or thoroughbred – has been filmed on the streets of Milan, Italy, with the video uploaded to YouTube by SupercarsOfMilan and also shared by Spanish leaker Cochespias.
A low-resolution leaked patent image was also published on the Cochespias website, showing off a front three-quarter look at the Purosangue SUV.
Ferrari confirmed at its 2022 capital markets day event in June that it’ll unveil the Purosangue in September, ahead of production starting later this year and deliveries starting in 2023.
The Purosangue prototype in the video is covered in a thin black-and-white camouflage with a wavy design that allows us to see the Purosangue’s overall exterior design.
Overall, the Ferrari Purosangue has a high-riding ‘coupe SUV’ silhouette with sweeping lines and grand tourer elements that 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 spied Purosangue prototype 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 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 Dieter Knechtel, President of Ferrari Far East and Middle East.
