Test prototype of Ferrari Purosangue crossover spotted on tests

The journalists published photos from the tests of the Italian crossover Ferrari Purosangue. The new Ferrari used the body of the Ferrari GTC4Lusso station wagon.

It’s been a long time since we heard from Ferrari itself about its upcoming Purosangue crossover. An all-new high-end Ferrari model, which the brand refuses to call a classic crossover, was announced back in 2018. With its help, Italians are going to enter a very popular segment of the car market – crossovers.

Since then, several facts have been published about the new product, as well as various renders (one of the bottom is shown above), which shows what the first crossover from Ferrari could be.

For the first time, journalists noticed a prototype of the Purosangue crossover a month after the announcement of this car. It was an early test mule of the novelty, which was hidden under the body of the versatile GTC4Lusso – it was reported that at that time, the brand’s engineers were testing the Purosangue power unit.

This time, a similar prototype was spotted in Maranello, Italy, as seen in the “spy” video embedded at the top of this page. Test Mule – still borrows the body from the GTC4Lusso. Note the excessively tall wheel arches.

Purosangue will be built on Ferrari’s new mid-engined front-wheel drive platform that will support all-wheel drive and electrified powertrains.

It is known that the crossover will receive a five-door body and a coupe body type. In size, however, it will not be as massive as the Lamborghini Urus. More recent reports suggest that Ferrari engineers prefer a plug-in hybrid engine for their new FUV, which is what they named their new product. The Ferrari Purosangue is expected to arrive in 2021.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that an exclusive Ferrari appeared on sale with almost no run. In Texas, a unique 2012 Ferrari SP30 is on sale again with a red body and a range of 165 km.
