Head-to-Head: Ferrari Purosangue vs. Lamborghini Urus – Neck and Neck!

Battle of Natural Aspiration versus Turbo Power

It’s incredible to consider that we are now in a time where Ferrari is producing an SUV. It would be even more unbelievable if it were the only one in the market, but in reality, it was one of the final luxury car manufacturers to enter this segment.

Ferrari has successfully ventured into the SUV market, offering a powerful V-12 engine and stylish design. However, having these features is not sufficient to declare it the fastest SUV in a quarter-mile drag race. Carwow’s latest video sets out to determine this by comparing it to the Lamborghini Urus.

The Ferrari boasts a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V-12 engine generating 725 horsepower and 527 pound-feet of torque. In comparison, the Urus is equipped with a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine producing 666 horsepower, slightly less than the Ferrari, but it offers more torque at 626 lb ft. Both the Lamborghini and Ferrari feature all-wheel drive systems, with the Lamborghini being slightly heavier at 4,740 pounds versus Ferrari’s 4,482 lbs.

Quarter-mile drag competitions highlighted the similar performance of the two SUVs, despite their contrasting features. The Urus typically surged ahead at the start, yet the Purosangue managed to catch up by the end, resulting in closely contested finishes. The Ferrari emerged victorious in two out of the three races, with both vehicles finishing the quarter-mile in an identical time of 11.9 seconds.

Ferrari Purosangue v Lamborghini Urus: DRAG RACE

The Ferrari faced difficulties in the initial rolling race due to issues with the automatic gearboxes. However, in the subsequent races, the Purosangue excelled as the driver was able to manually control the gear shifts, resulting in effortless wins in the remaining competitions on the track.

Ferrari is not actively seeking to increase its sales by introducing an SUV. The company is intentionally restricting the production of the Purosangue to only 20 percent of its yearly production, in order to maintain its exclusivity and high price without allowing it to overshadow sales or water down its brand image. In contrast, Lamborghini had a record-breaking sales year in 2023 primarily due to the success of the Urus, which was responsible for the majority of the brand’s sales.
