2022 Ferrari Purosangue SUV spied testing under heavy camouflages

2022 Ferrari Purosangue SUV spied testing under heavy camouflages

KUALA LUMPUR: It’s no secret that Ferrari is currently working on a model named Purosangue, which will be unlike any other model from the Italian automaker for one key reason. That’s the upcoming car will be the first-ever SUV from the house of the Prancing Horse, whose prototype version has been recently spotted in Sweden during testing on the snowy roads. 

An Instagram user Stephan Barral uploaded the spied footage onto his account, along with some decent close-up spy shots of the luxury SUV, wrapped in secretive camouflages around the Maserati Levante body panels. However, these are not the first glimpses of the upcoming Ferarri Purosangue as it was earlier spied back in December wearing the body of GTC4 Lusso.

In the Ferrari lineup, the Purosangue SUV will indirectly replace the GTC4Lusso. It is also interesting to note that its overall shape and size will be closely related to the replaced model, with styling reportedly influenced by the Ferrari Roma. It will underpin a new front mid-engine platform, which the automaker is developing for its upcoming GT models. The platform will be paired with a new mid-engine architecture that is also in the works. Both will feature hybrid technology, while the latter one will also have the possibility of a non-electrified AWD system.

Details regarding the oily bits of the Ferrari Purosangue are not known at the moment, however, it is likely to get power from a 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that could generate a maximum power of 650 bhp. Moreover, Ferrari could also bring an electric version of the Purosangue as there are rumors that the company’s first battery-electric car due around 2025 will be an SUV.

The Ferrari Purosangue SUV is expected to be unveiled in late 2021 for the 2022 model year. It will face-off against the ultra-premium performance SUVs like the Lamborghini Urus, Bentley Bentayga, and Aston Martin DBX.
