New SUV Coming To The Market is Epic Including The Ferrari Purosangue, Polestar 3, Lamborghini and Porsche.
Maranello's Prancing Horse unveiled their first ever four-seater sedan: the Purosangue. The car is powered by their iconic naturally-aspirated V12 engine and has the capacity to generate 715-hp. It boasts vehicle dynamics usually found in their most extreme sports cars, making it an authentic Ferrari four-door sports car. With its innovative design, the Purosangue sets a new standard for the automotive industry.
The Purosangue has something to prove with the naturally-aspirated 6.5-litre V-12 engine under its hood. The 715 hp twelve-cylinder screams Ferrari and sports the brand's signature red valve colours. Not to mention, it boasts 528 lb-ft of torque that should power the Purosangue from 0-62 mph in 3.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 193 mph. If we have a chance to test this SUV, we'll post our test results; so far, it looks like one of the fastest SUVs on the market. Additionally, its adaptive suspension promises superior handling with an electric motor at each corner which minimises body roll and reduces ride height by 0.4 inches during cornering manoeuvres.
With enough room for four passengers, the Purosangue features rear-hinged coach doors for easy access to the two individual bucket seats in the back. These doors help maintain a two-door look while allowing rear passengers to enter. The interior is equipped with luxurious Ferrari materials, and all controls are managed through the steering wheel, instead of an infotainment touch screen. Glass roofing is available as an optional add-on, or customers can opt for the traditional carbon-fibre panel to save weight.
