Ferrari announces a novelty by the most « mechanical » way: by showing the atmospheric V12. Are we going to have the first SUV with this type of engine?
2022 will be an important year in the history of Ferrari which will unveil its very first SUV.

But with the success of competing models (pell-mell, Aston Martin DBX, Bentley Bentayga, Lamborghini Urus, Rolls Royce Cullinan and even Porsche Cayenne in a slightly different register), Ferrari could not turn its back ad vitan aeternam on the sacrosanct SUV. The Purosangue will therefore be a reality very soon, and after the leaked photos from the factory, here is an interesting teaser from Ferrari on a new V12 model.

So let’s wait to discover the Italian surprise, which could also be limited in production according to certain rumours…
