Ferrari’s SUV Might Out-Power The Lamborghini Urus

Ferrari is in the midst of developing its very first SUV and the vehicle is expected to offer more power than the Lamborghini Urus.

Ferrari has remained quite tight-lipped about its SUV, only confirming last year that it is being developed under the Purosangue name (Italian for ‘thoroughbred’ or ‘pure blood’). However, Car and Driver believes the SUV will likely push performance for these types of vehicles to new heights.

It is believed the Ferrari Purosangue will be powered by some kind of V8 engine, likely adorned with a pair of turbochargers and some form of hybrid assistance. The Lamborghini Urus pumps out 641 hp from its twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 and, with the addition of a hybrid system, it’s certainly possible that the Ferrari will have more grunt. The rear-mounted transaxle layout of the Purosangue’s platform should mean the front wheels will be powered in part by electricity.

Ferrari’s decision to launch an SUV is clearly one motivated by the expectation of making heaps of money on such a vehicle. SUVs are the latest must-haves for the world’s elite and, with the likes of Lamborghini, Bentley, Rolls-Royce, and Porsche all competing in this segment of the market, it was only a matter of time before Ferrari joined the party.

No one outside of Ferrari has any idea of what the company’s first SUV will look like but it will inevitable share some common design traits with existing Ferrari models. Expect sharp and aggressive headlights, round taillights, and a set of big, sporty wheels.

    Honestly with most of the premium supercar automakers are making suvs. Bugatti might follow suit so I don’t see why not with Ferrari! Let’s see!

  • Mr. EP9

    Will it out ugly them, though?

    • Matt

      Urus looks pretty menacing in real life, certainly wouldn’t call it ‘ugly’.

      • Bo Hanan

        I’d say striking. Would never buy one but the adulation that came with driving one for a day would be cool.

    • Six_Tymes

      doubtful

  • Zandit75

    Render looks good, with exception to the rims. They may need replacing with something that is fully round!!

  • MarketAndChurch

    I really don’t think it needs crazy hp. It just needs to be the best handling, funnest to drive SUV out there, as well as being reasonably comfortable. A hybrid with AWD would be ideal.

  • Teddy Wijaya

    Why so secret?…. Fanboys with money will buy it.

  • Bo Hanan

    Can’t help but believe this car won’t be a cartoon when it arrives.

  • Six_Tymes

    this render by Giorgi Tedoradze looks promising.

    Wow! I didn’t realize Ferrari was gonna do this. Last I remember, a year or two ago, Ferrari was kicking and screaming how they were NOT gonna make an suv. Of course most everyone thought they would because of the money to be made.

    • ThatGuy

      Dude i was going to say the exact same thing.

      • john1168

        Great minds think alike:)

        • ThatGuy

          That is true, from one legend to another

    • Stigasawuswrecks

      That’s what previous president Montezemolo was saying but he was overruled by Marchionne and that’s one of the reasons why he left.

      • john1168

        ok, Thanks for the info:)

    • Enter Ranting

      Integrity goes right out the window when you focus on money instead of your company’s illustrious heritage.

    Nobody is going to buy it if it looks like a raised Portofino.

  • ace_9

    So, it’s gonna have rims of roughly the same size as doors?

  • sidewaysspin

    It will probably be something very special, the Ferrari of SUV’s.

  • Tumbi Mtika

    🎶SELL OUT! WITH ME, OH YEAH..🎶

    🎶SELL OUT! WITH ME, TONIGHT…🎶

    Marchionne is rolling in his grave.
