Ferrari’s first SUV model is officially in production. The Italian luxury automaker is known for building supercars with jaw-dropping performance specs. Supercars can be cramped and uncomfortable for drivers. The Ferrari Purosangue SUV combines the performance of a supercar with the practicality of an SUV model. It is an SUV designed for the world elite. The Ferrari SUV has officially arrived at UK dealerships. This is what the new and innovative SUV costs.
The price of the Ferrari SUV in the UK has been revealed
Ferrari has gradually released information about its new SUV. Now, the Purosangue has finally made its first showroom appearance. According to Motor1, the Ferrari Purosangue 2023 has a starting price of 313,000 pounds. That’s the equivalent of $385,000 at the current exchange rate. So estimates of a starting price of $400K aren’t far off.
It’s not known exactly how much the 2023 Ferrari Purosangue will cost in the United States, but it’s likely to be closer to $400,000 after taxes and fees based on the model that just entered a London showroom. Such a high asking price may seem obscene to some consumers, but the luxury performance SUV’s V12 engine and incredible specs will justify its price for many buyers (who can afford such a pricey SUV).
What is the great rival of the Ferrari SUV?
The performance SUV space is becoming more competitive as automakers realize there is a market for SUVs with luxurious features and quick acceleration. The Ferrari Purosangue claims to outshine many competitors, but its biggest rival is the Lamborghini Urus Performante.
Lamborghini has been producing an SUV since 2018. The Urus is considered the first “super SUV” by many car enthusiasts. Other brands have created similar nameplates, but few have the same cachet as Lamborghini.
Now Lamborghini has developed an even more powerful version of the Urus, the Lamborghini Urus Performante. MotorTrend claims that the 2023 Lamborghini Urus Performante will start at $260,676. It uses a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine to make 657 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque. The Purosangue is more powerful, but Lamborghini’s new SUV is still incredibly fast. It is also much more affordable.
Is the Ferrari Purosangue better than the Lamborghini Urus Performante?
The Ferrari Purosangue and the Lamborghini Urus Performante are incredible SUVs. That said, the Purosangue has a distinct advantage thanks to its naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine. The Purosangue is one of the few SUVs in that market to use a V12 other than Rolls Royce SUVs. It makes a whopping 715 horsepower.
Ferrari claims that the Purosangue should be able to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in less than 3.3 seconds. According to Forbes, the Urus currently holds the title of fastest SUV in the world. The Urus Performante is even faster. Once the Purosangue is thoroughly tested, it should easily take the title of Lamborghini’s fastest SUV.
The 2023 Purosangue has officially opened a Pandora’s Box in the SUV space. Its incredible power output proves that SUVs can be just as fast, if not faster, than supercars. The gloves have been removed and a new era of automotive engineering has begun. The Ferrari SUV has the potential to be the most impactful launch of the coming year.
