Eagerly awaited by the many fans of the Italian brand, the first SUV in the history of Ferrari has just been indiscreetly unveiled, in what will be its final forms. Behold, therefore, the Purosangue, Cavallino that inaugurates a new era in the Maranello brand!
Officially still without a presentation date, despite a development process that has been going on for more than three years, the Ferrari Purosangue now seems closer and closer to the official unveiling. Which, by all indications, could happen later this year, followed by the first deliveries, as early as 2023,
To justify this idea, the photographs released through the social network Instagram and the account ‘wilco blok’, in which it is possible to observe the first SUV of the Ferrari, on what appears to be an assembly line. Most likely, a pre-production unit, wearing a metallic exterior color that contributes to highlighting the wavy lines of Purosangue.
Incidentally, and still about the design now unveiled, the three-quarter photos of the Ferrari Purosangue reveal an aesthetic of lights very similar to that of the SF90, and to which is added, then, a front grille that, unlike most Ferrari models, does not appears in line with the headlights, but at the bottom of the bumper. Solution, in a way, very similar to that found by Porsche, in the Panamera.
