The Ferrari Purosangue is the first ever four-door, four-seater car in Ferrari’s history. In the culmination of 75 years of leading-edge research, the company has created a perfect blend of sheer performance and peerless comfort, where capabilities, driving pleasure and usability coexist in harmony. Its mid-front-mounted naturally-aspirated V12 ensures the car unleashes more power than any other in the segment (725 cv) whilst guaranteeing an unmistakable engine soundtrack.
Driving excitement Made in Maranello is 100% guaranteed thanks to extremely thorough aerodynamic research and the introduction of vehicle dynamics from Ferrari’s most extreme sports cars. The all-new chassis with carbon-fibre roof is characterised by rear-hinged back doors and houses four generous heated electric seats. The boot is the largest ever seen on a Ferrari and the rear seats fold for even more space. Thanks to its modern architecture, the Ferrari Purosangue is a versatile car that melds unparalleled comfort with Ferrari’s signature performance and driving pleasure.
The Ferrari Purosangue’s naturally-aspirated V12 engine boasts 80% torque already available at 2100 rpm and maximum power of 725 cv and throttle response is characteristic of a real sports car. Huge attention was lavished on improving mechanical and combustion efficiency, employing Formula 1-inspired calibration concepts. Its unmistakable harmonics accompany the driver and at high revs there’s an enthralling crescendo, a pinnacle of brilliance only Ferrari’s engines can offer. The car’s volumes demanded a radical rethink of both methods and solutions, as well as hundreds of hours in the wind tunnel and thousands of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulations. The kind of development work dedicated to the fastest and most powerful sports cars in the range, in fact.
The car boasts the Ferrari active suspension technology, a world first, and the ABS ‘evo’, with its function further developed on this version to cope with low grip surfaces. The 4RM-S all-wheel drive system on the Ferrari Purosangue inherits the 4WS system of the 812 Competizione for faster axle response time and more precise entry and exit from bends. The layout and proportions are completely different compared to the predominant modern GT archetypes (crossovers and SUVs) because the weight distribution of such cars does not allow driving dynamics in keeping with Prancing Horse standards. The Ferrari Purosangue, on the other hand, has a transaxle layout typical of sports cars as well as a PTU coupled in front of the engine to provide a unique 4x4 transmission, with optimal weight distribution for a sports car with mid-front-mounted engine.
The cabin looks and feels like an extremely elegant, sporty lounge: when the doors are opened, a surprisingly generous space is revealed. Equally surprising is the sophisticated luxury of the interior which exudes a sense of both elegance and modernity. Modern design languages combine with Ferrari’s signature GT sports car aesthetic. The forms are deliberately compact to optimise the available space. The feeling of engagement for the front passenger is guaranteed by the dual-cockpit architecture and the 10.25” display that provides all the information required to help them participate in the driving experience.
The Ferrari Purosangue features the entirely digital interface already adopted for the rest of the range. The dual cockpit concept was extended and replicated in the back of the car, creating four areas quite distinct in terms of their functionality, volumes, materials and colours. For the first time in Ferrari history, the cabin has four separate and independently adjustable seats. The integration of comfort-focused components, the use of variable density foams, and the new suspension system mean that the Ferrari Purosangue delivers unprecedented occupant comfort. The heated backseats can be adjusted and reclined independently. When fully raked forwards, they significantly increase the Ferrari Purosangue’s luggage capacity. The Ferrari Purosangue also offers an impressive array of driver assistance (ADAS) features as standard, including Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Automatic Emergency Brake System (AEB), Auto High Beam (HBA/HBAM), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), Blind Spot Detection (BSD), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR), Driver Drowsiness and Attention (DDA), and rear-view parking camera (NSW).
