Watch as a Ferrari Purosangue is thrashed around Fiorano
Ferrari is adamant that the new Purosangue is not an SUV, and we get it. It is certainly not an SUV in the conventional sense. We see it as a large all-wheel-drive hatchback, a GTC4 Lusso on stilts. That being said, it certainly isn’t a car you would drive to a track day.
The Ferrari Purosangue was recently spotted at the Fiorano test track. Despite its weight, the car looks quite composed around the twisty circuit, partly thanks to the rear-axle steering. But, obviously, it isn’t as quick as the 812 Superfast with a similar 6.5-liter V12 engine. You can see the weight shifting as the driver brakes into a corner. Also, note the front discs get red hot under heavy braking.
The Purosangue’s engine develops 725 hp and 528 lb-ft of torque @ 6250 rpm. It is hooked up to an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Ferrari claims a 0-62 mph time of 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 193 mph.
