Ferrari Gives More Details on The Ferrari ‘Purosangue’

Ferrari’s Chief Technical Officer gave more details about the upcoming Ferrari SUV, the ‘Purosangue’.

Over the last few months, reports about the new Ferrari SUV, codenamed ‘Purosangue’, are giving more and more details. This time around, the British magazine Autocar sat down with Michael Leiters, Ferrari’s Chief Technical Officer to learn more about the Ferrari of SUVs.

During the exclusive interview, Leiters said: “I think we’ve found a concept and a package which is on one side a real SUV and will convince SUV customers to buy it, but on the other side there’s a huge differentiation of concept to existing SUVs.

The concept he’s talking about here is the fact that Ferrari, unlike most current manufacturers, can combine a customized platform. It is known that the Italian’s carmaker SUV will feature an adaptable front-mid-engine platform.

That architecture can accommodate a large array of possibilities when it comes to the powertrains. Moreover, it can be completely malleable for different body styles, variable wheelbase lengths and ground clearances, among others.

That being said, Autocar thinks the Ferrari ‘Purosangue’ will be a five-meter long (16 feet) SUV and will sit four. It will also get a height-adjustable suspension and an anti-roll system, as well as two different engine options. One would be a V6 plug-in hybrid, while the other would be a V12.

The challenge is to open a new segment for Ferrari. We always have very, very sharp positioning.” added Michael Leiters. “It helps to develop cars in a certain, focused manner and easily decide certain trade-offs. The trade-off decision is totally different for us here. We will have totally new engineering challenges.
