2010 Ferrari FS 599 Fuoristrada SUV

|
Huh; a Ferrari SUV? We admit, it does sound weird but as the saying goes, “where there’s smoke, there’s a fire”. And if anything else, we’ve been hearing a lot about Ferrari’s intentions to broaden up its line-up with a high-performance SUV. We won’t lie to you and say that we have inside information on the SUV project, but if Porsche did it successfully with the butt ugly Cayenne (and without denting its image), we can’t find a reason to as why Ferrari shouldn’t.

This rendering, which we acquired from our newly found friends at the Romanian car website “Automarket”, was created by Andrei Avarvarii. Unlike other propositions for a Ferrari SUV that we’ve seen in the past, the FS 599 Fuoristrada (according to Automarket, that’s the codename Ferrari uses), looks quite good combining styling elements from the past and the present. -Continued after the jump

The guys at Automarket support that Ferrari company bosses are attempting to seal a business agreement with the Fiat Group as we talk. Basically, Ferrari has to convince Fiat that that the SUV project will be profitable in order to get the final okay. In this case, the model will most probably make its worldwide premiere at the Geneva Show in 2010. Here are the initial specs that Automarket posted: weight 2,200 kg / 4,850 lbs, +600 HP, less than 5 seconds for the 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint, 300 km/h (185 mph) top speed and a price of around 250,000 euro or $360,000 (in Europe).

Nope, it's a photochop of the 2003 Alfa Romeo Kamal concept (and a pretty minimal one at that): http://www.autojurnal.ro/autojurnal-content/uploads/2006/11/alfa-romeo-kamal-concept-1-800x600.thumbnail.jpg

I don't doubt for a minute that Ferrari could make buckets of money with an SUV, like Porsche. Even so, I think that it would tarnish the brand, no matter how well it performs and how well it sells.
I hope for the Ferrari purists that this idea gets scrapped.

Still sticking with Porsche, and NOT their crappy Cayenne. 911 Turbo is best.
