Ferrari Could Unveil Its First SUV on September 13

Ferrari is reportedly planning to unveil the Purosangue SUV on September 13.

  • The Purosangue SUV will be unveiled next month, probably on the 13th

  • The name of this model could still change for the production version

  • The first models will be powered by a V12 engine, with a hybrid V6 powertrain rumoured for later

Rumours say that Ferrari could be getting ready to unveil the Purosangue, its first SUV ever, possibly as soon as September 13.

According to sources cited by TheSupercarBlog, an event will be held in Tuscany on that date to reveal the Purosangue, although it hasn’t been determined if this will be a private showing limited to a few potential customers or if it will instead be a global unveiling.

Ferrari teased this upcoming SUV in March but it hasn’t revealed much more since then. Leaked images confirm that its design will be inspired by many of the brand’s supercars, including the Roma and the SF90 Stradale.

The general proportions of the SUV also appear to be similar to the Roma due to its very long hood and its curved roof line.

The first units of the Purosangue will reportedly be powered by a V12 engine that could deliver around 800 horsepower and later ones could adopt the hybrid V6 powertrain found in the 296 GTB plug-in hybrid supercar. This advanced powertrain currently makes 819 horsepower, which means that it could have about the same power level as the V12 it will replace while generating fewer tailpipe emissions.

This level of power could give it close to a 200-horsepower advantage over the Lamborghini Urus and the Aston Martin DBX, its two closest rivals at the top of the sports SUV segment.

Interestingly, the Purosangue name could still change before the model reaches production according to reports that say this name is only a development codename.
