Purosangue: Reaching 192+ mph.
Ferrari has done it – the prestigious Italian marque has unveiled a four-door, elevated model that they simply won’t refer to as an SUV. It’s called the Purosangue, or “pure breed”. Despite the larger cargo area and extra seats, Ferrari hasn’t sacrificed their renowned performance capabilities in the Purosangue. This video from Motorsport Magazine serves to demonstrate that the Purosangue is still a speedy and powerful vehicle.
The clip started with a rapid show of the Ferrari Purosangue, illustrating its discreetly positioned door handle and rear doors. Subsequently, the most exciting part of the short video came into view demonstrating an unobstructed look of the dashboard.
The video has aroused an interest to reveal the Purosangue’s potential when launch control is enabled. Whilst no official clocking was provided, we employed a stopwatch in order to time this trial for viewers.
Commencing from zero all the way up to 62 mph (100 km/h), our stopwatch clocked a time of 3.4 seconds, which was virtually indistinguishable from Ferrari’s stated time of 3.3 seconds. Upholding speed until 155 mph (250 km/h), it reached this velocity in less than 15 seconds — that is remarkably compelling, but we have to bear in mind that the Purosangue is capable of going beyond 192 mph (309 km/h).
It’s achievable with the 6.5-liter V12 found in the Purosangue that yields up to an incredible 715hp and an awe-inspiring 528lb/ft (716Nm) of torque, which is said to be the highest of any Ferrari GT car ever created.
The extraordinary Purosangue is unarguably a super non-SUV that must be taken into consideration, yet its price gives it the additional edge. Starting off from the American market at $393,350 prior to the compulsory $5,000 conveyance charges and questionable gas-guzzler taxes yet to be confirmed, it is notably costlier than its contenders in the same domain – such as the base Rolls-Royce Cullinan and far more expensive than the Lamborghini Urus usually valued at around $170,000.
