Besides hiring ex-Apple brains, Ferrari announced plans to join the rest of the auto industry in the production of a body type it had until recently declined to include in its roster—the SUV.
Ferrari released news this year that their first SUV, the Purosangue, will be ready by the end of 2022. Details about the new model remain shrouded in secrecy, but Ferrari enthusiasts pieced together snippets and rumors to render a potential picture of what the Purosangue could be.
From the tiny bits of information found, they expect a 1,000 hp coupe-style crossover that could end up being the most powerful SUV on the market.
What does a new Ferrari cost to own?
Ferraris are expensive. Their high-end designs, top-tier parts, and limited numbers make them worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. Even the more passenger-focused Purosangue is expected to cost about $300,000.
