The Ferrari Purosangue debuts tomorrow, but the Italian automaker has at least one final teaser to show us before the big reveal. The new video clip, posted to the company’s social media pages, doesn’t reveal much about the car, but does provide a glimpse of the red Ferrari-branded V12 engine that will power it.
Ferrari hasn’t provided specific details about the naturally aspirated factory, but the company has confirmed some other interesting tidbits about the powertrain. The engine will be paired with a dual clutch gearbox and all-wheel drive. Output figures remain a mystery, something we’ll have to find out on Tuesday, but the V12 makes 830 horsepower (610 kilowatts) in the 812 Competizione, and is capable of much more.
The mighty V12 will get a lot of attention, but it’s likely not the model’s only powertrain option. There may also be a hybrid variant, but there is no indication that it will debut tomorrow. We hope the hybrid will break the cover at a later date, perhaps as the best version of the Purosangue. Ferrari wants 60 percent of its models to have a hybrid or electric powertrain by 2026, and the new Purosangue is likely one of those models.
When the Purosangue goes on sale, Ferrari will limit its production. The Italian automaker wants to limit sales to below 20 percent of annual shipments. That means Ferrari wants every one of its five new Ferraris to be a Purosangue. That means the company’s supercars will continue to make up the bulk of its sales.
Ferrari is the latest high-end automaker to develop SUVs to adapt to changing consumer trends. Aston Martin, Bentley, Lamborghini and Rolls-Royce have introduced the DBX, Bentayga, Urus and Cullinan in recent years with great success, following in the footsteps of the worn tires of early pioneers such as the Porsche Cayenne.
The Ferrari portfolio will be a big new addition tomorrow when the company reveals Purosangue. Spy photos and teasers have shown that the model won’t look like your typical SUV, with its aggressive front fascia and slouching look. Purosangue will arrive for the 2023 model year.
