Ferrari has always been against the idea of the fabrication of a SUV. Enzo Ferrari, the inventor of the Italian brand, said was always opposed to the idea of a four-door Ferrari. But him was not alone, the former boss Sergio Marchionne said “You’d have to shoot me first” when he was asked for a SUV version of a Ferrari, but when he died in 2018, the automaker announced their plan to create a SUV.
This announcement has added to the intention of making a SUV of another luxury automakers, like Lamborghini with the Urus, and Aston Martin with the BDX 707. At the same time, Ferrari announced a new Purosangue for 2023, and it looks like this is going to have a SUV variant, but this has not been confirmed yet.
The Ferrari’s existing front-engine platform is going to be adapted to the SUV model. It means that rear transaxle is likely, and maybe it will be a hybrid powertrain, with the possibility of being an electric. The Italian automaker has said that it will use the new V12 engine of the brand, and a twin-turbo V-8 is likely too. It is expected to be faster that the SUVs of the automakers that we have named, surpassing the 189-mph of the Lamborghini Urus and the 193-mph of the Aston Martin DBX 707.
The most of this information are rumours, but knowing the actions of the Italian mark, it looks like is going to be on this way. Another rumour is about rear-hinged rear doors and a B-pillarless greenhouse, and there is a badge on the hood and a prancing horse in the grille. This information indicate that the official announcement of a Ferrari SUV is so close, so we have not to wait too much time to see the first Ferrari SUV.
