Ferrari teases Purosangue exhaust note before September 13 debut
We have been speaking a few Ferrari SUV for greater than 5 years, when ex-CEO Luca de Montezemolo stated the Maranello automaker would by no means construct one after which was let go not lengthy after. We have recognized there can be a Ferrari SUV for 4 years, when the model’s product street map ID’d what would come to be nicknamed the Ferrari Utility Automobile. Barring a late switcheroo, we’re betting on the official identify to be Purosangue. Throughout a 12 months of teasers and spy movies, ultimately, we have now lower than every week to see what all of the fuss has been and shall be about. On September 13, Ferrari exhibits its new four-door, four-seat household automobile, and teased the arrival with a clip of the exhaust notice.
You heard it right here first.

Though muted, we anticipate that sound to be rising from a naturally aspirated V12, the engine CEO Benedetta Vigna confirmed the Purosangue will supply. It is attainable Ferrari’s twin-turbo V8 will be part of the choices, however we do not know if or when that occurs. With spy movies displaying what seems to be a barely lifted wagon-esque kind, the Purosangue’s deal with street manners might vault it to the highest of the aggressive set within the horsepower column. The corporate’s 6.5-liter V12 makes 819 horsepower within the 812Superfast, simply besting the 697 within the Aston Martin DBX 707 and the 657 horses within the Lamborghini Urus Performante. Even Ferrari’s twin-snail V8 would clear the bar, that engine producing 711 hp within the F8 Tributo. Or, it is attainable Ferrari might flip the wick manner down, aligning the Purosangue with its tourers, the 611-hp Roma and 612-hp Portofino M convertible.
Appears like regardless of the specs, the Purosangue will not be the simplest Ferrari to get into for causes past the present industrial snarls. A Ferrari presentation throughout Capital Markets Day this 12 months defined the Purosangue’s “yearly common contribution to shipments will stay beneath 20% over its lifecycle.” Quantity that low signifies a cap enforced by the corporate; SUVs launched amongst different tremendous sports activities automobile makers have run on to the highest of the model’s gross sales charts. We won’t be stunned to see that determine rise within the coming years, or Purosangue’s being flipped for obscene quantities over its complete run.
It is fairly the month for lusty automobiles, the Pagani C10 debuting the day earlier than the Ferrari, the seventh-gen Ford Mustang arriving the day after.
