Ferrari Purosangue with 725hp, 6.5L V12 NA engine to rival Lamborghini Urus and Bentley Bentayga – Times of India

Ferrari has finally unveiled the highly anticipated Purosangue, the very first four-door, four-seater car in the Prancing Horse’s 75-year history. The Purosangue will compete directly with Lamborghini Urus and Bentley Bentayga, however, Ferrari refrains from calling its new offering an SUV.
Ferrari says the Purosangue has a mid-mounted engine up front with the gearbox in the rear, which creates a sporty transaxle layout. This provides a 49% (front): 51% (rear) weight distribution that Maranello engineers say is optimal for a front mid-engined sports car. The sports car is powered by a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine that develops 725 hp at 7,750 rpm and 716 Nm of torque at 6,250 rpm.
With a dry weight of 2033 kg, the Purosangue is in fact the heaviest Ferrari car ever built. However, the company claims that the performance is not up to what is expected of a prancing horse. The four-door, four-seat sports car can go from 0-100 km/h in just 3.3 seconds and 0-200 km/h in 10.6 seconds, with a top speed of over 310 km/h . Transmission duties are taken care of by an 8-speed DCT.

The Ferrari Purosangue gets fully motorized rear-hinged suicide doors that open to 73 degrees. It gets two individual seats in the back, with a rear center console in the middle. The boot capacity of 473 liters makes it the largest boot ever on a Ferrari and the rear seats fold down to increase luggage space.
The equipment offered with the Ferrari Purosangue includes a full-length electrochromic glass roof (optional), 10 airbags, air quality sensor, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, Burmester 3D High-End Surround Sound System, Hill Descent Control, as well as ADAS features such as adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking system, automatic high beams, lane departure warning, hold assist lane detection, blind spot detection, rear cross traffic alert, traffic sign recognition, driver drowsiness and attention and a rear view parking camera.


Ferrari also previously revealed that production of the Purosangue would be limited to no more than 20% of the company’s total annual deliveries. On that note, deliveries of the Ferrari Purosangue are expected to begin next year. A launch in India is also planned by the end of 2023.
