The Ferrari Purosangue was introduced in September as the brand’s first SUV. But the Prancing Horse is apparently still tweaking the machine. This video is the proof, with a fully camouflaged Purosangue, driving on the test track of the Fiorano brand.
After a vehicle is launched, some automakers agree to drive it without camouflage. Others prefer to keep it. Ferrari is clearly part of this camp.
The driver of this Purosangue pushes the crossover hard on the track. Although we are not sure, it is debatable whether the manufacturer is still tuning the vehicle. The suspension, the steering, or the different driving modes may still require some adjustments before launching the production of the vehicles for customers.
This video is above all an opportunity for us to see the vehicle indulge in a few slides in the turns and make quick downshifts. The driver also accelerates fully when cornering.
If you missed it, the Purosangue has a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 that develops 725 horsepower at 7750 rpm and 716 Nm of torque at 8250 rpm. 80% of the torque is available from 2100 rpm.
Power goes through an eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox. This is a sophisticated all-wheel-drive system where no power is transmitted to the front axle beyond fourth gear or above 201 km/h.
This configuration allows the Ferrari Purosangue to reach 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 309 km/h.
The Purosangue is equipped with suicide doors. The rear ones open up to 79 degrees to facilitate occupant access. There are two bucket seats in the back.
In Europe, prices for Purosangue start at €390,000.
Like its other models, Ferrari wants the Purosangue to remain exclusive. Annual production should not exceed 20% of the company’s annual total. It could even mean the closing of order books for the first year, even if many people are ready to buy one.
