Ferrari Purosangue: here it is with retractable door handles

In 2016, the late Sergio Marchionne had confirmed that Ferrari he would never develop an SUV. A little over two years later, Louis Camilleri revealed the arrival of such a model that is often cited as the heir to the GTC4Lusso and GTC4Lusso T.

Known internally by the code name F16X, the Ferrari Thoroughbred is currently being road tested with the Maserati Levante body and a fully camouflaged liner to keep its design hidden.

Ferrari Purosangue: another digital project shows us the possible final appearance of the FUV

Fortunately, in recent months, several digital projects have been published online that have shown us what the final appearance of the FUV (Ferrari Utility Vehicle) and the last one was shared in the past few hours. This new render shows us the Thoroughbred with retractable door handles and a rather familiar look on the front, as well as the presence of four doors.

The 2018/2022 business plan announced by the Modena carmaker confirmed that the SUV will have a dual-clutch transmission and up to four engines to choose from. Maranello is currently developing a new family of V6 engines that will be joined by the twin-turbo V8 of the SF90 Stradale and the V12 used on the 812 range.

All three powertrains should be paired with electrification but for a Ferrari 100% electric vehicle we will have to wait until 2025. There is currently no confirmation on a fully electric version of the model.

We know that the Ferrari Thoroughbred will focus more on handling than off-road capabilities. Bentley, Lamborghini and Rolls-Royce have developed their Bentayga, Urus and Cullinan also for off-road but it seems that the historic Modena brand will not follow this path.

As for the official presentation, it should take place in the course of 2022 and arrive in dealerships by the end of next year as a model year 2023. We know the Ferrari Thoroughbred it will rise on the same platform that is at the base of present-day Rome.
