Ferrari Purosangue V12 SUV Hitting Fiorano Is A Sight To Behold

Posted on

The Ferrari Purosangue debuted in September as the brand’s first crossover. Prancing Horse apparently still perfecting the engine. This video shows a full camouflage licking test track of the Fiorano brand.

After the vehicle’s debut, some automakers were fine with driving it without camouflage. Other companies leave the lid on. Ferrari is clearly in the last camp.

This Purosangue driver pushes the crossover hard around the track. While we don’t know for sure, we wonder if the company might tune the vehicle. Suspension, steering, or various driving modes may still require some adjustments before manufacturing a vehicle for a customer.

At times, the vehicle slides through corners and shifts down rapidly. The driver also accelerates violently from between turns.

The Purosangue offers a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine that produces 715 horsepower (533 kilowatts) at 7,750 rpm and 528 pound-feet (716 Newton-meters) of torque at 8,250 rpm. Eighty percent of rev is available from 2,100 rpm.

Power is channeled through an eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox. It has a state-of-the-art all-wheel-drive powertrain where no power flows to the front axle above fourth gear or at more than 125 miles per hour (201 kilometers per hour).

This setup allows the Purosangue to reach 62 mph (100 kph) in 3.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 192 mph (309 kph).

Purosangue has a suicide door. The one at the back opens as far as 79 degrees so residents can climb inside more easily. There are two bucket seats in the back.

In Europe, the price of the Purosangue starts at €390,000. We haven’t confirmed the cost for the US but expect a figure of around $400,000.

Like other models, Ferrari wants the Purosangue to remain exclusive. Annual production should not exceed 20 percent of the company’s annual total. This might even mean closing the order book for the first year even though there are still plenty of people willing to buy it.
