New 2023 Ferrari Purosangue SUV storms in with a 715bhp V12

The new Ferrari Purosangue, the brand's first SUV, has been revealed - although the company is quick to claim that it's not actually an SUV. "It's unlike any other car," said Ferrari CEO Benedetto Vigna, "It's a sports car opening a new segment."

The Purosangue is the brand's first ever four-door, four-seater with access to the rear seats via a powered, rear-hinged 'welcome' door. However, at 4,973mm long and 1,589mm tall it's only slightly shorter and lower than a Lamborghini Urus, although the Lamborghini is considerably more practical, with a 616-litre boot compared with the Ferrari's 473-litre luggage space.

Under its long, clamshell bonnet that opens high from the back sits a new 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine producing 715bhp and 716Nm of torque without even an hint of electrification. It's mounted way back in the engine bay in a mid-front position to help with weight distribution, while power is fed through an eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox (with the first seven having deliberately short ratios) positioned at the rear, while a power transfer unit can shift power to the front wheels to give four-wheel drive if needed.
