The Ferrari Purosangue
UNLIKE ANY OTHER.
The Ferrari Purosangue is the first ever four-door, four-seater car in Ferrari’s history, but models with two rear seats have played a significant role in the company’s strategy since the very beginning. Now, in the culmination of 75 years of leading-edge research, Ferrari has created a unique car and the encapsulation of the Prancing Horse’s DNA, where performance, driving pleasure and comfort coexist in perfect harmony. And that’s why this new model was called Ferrari Purosangue – Italian for thoroughbred.
In the culmination of 75 years of leading-edge research, Ferrari has created a car that is unique on the world stage: not only do performance, driving pleasure and comfort coexist in perfect harmony, but it is also a peerless encapsulation of the Prancing Horse’s iconic DNA. This is the reason why the name Purosangue, Italian for ‘thoroughbred’, was chosen.
Designed to be as aerodynamic as possible, the Purosangue features a raft of innovations, from the latest in vehicle dynamic control systems to the world debut of Ferrari active suspension technology using Multimatic’s True Active Spool Valve (TASV) System.
One feature of design that’s likely to have everyone talking is the fact that the Purosangue features rear-hinged passenger doors, or welcome doors, crafted in order to allow people to get in and out of the car as smoothly as possible without needing to increase the size of the vehicle. Elsewhere, customers will find the largest boot ever on a Ferrari, heated seats front and back and a Burmester high-end audio system as standard.
The performance numbers are staggering; 0-62mph is seen off in just 3.3 seconds, while the Purosangue will rocket from 0-125mph in an incredible 10.2 seconds. The 6.5 litre, V12 engine has been painstakingly designed to offer the driver a seemingly never-ending amount of power under their right foot, with the eight-speed, dual clutch transmission and cylinder heads derived from the fearsome 812 Competizione. The soundtrack produced is nothing short of jaw-dropping.
Sustainability was key for Ferrari in designing the Purosangue, in fact, 85 percent of the launch trim for the car was sustainably produced: the fabric roof-lining is made from recycled polyester, the lush carpet is made from polyamide recycled from fishing nets salvaged from the oceans and newly formulated Alcantara®, is also derived from recycled polyester.
With handling and performance completely unprecedented in a car of this size and shape, combined with Ferrari’s signature iconic style seen in its GT cars, it’s fair to say the Purosangue is truly a car like no other.
