Ferrari is already planning the launch of a “FUV” (Ferrari Utility Vehicle), an off-road four-door, four-seater that will open a new one for the brand of the cavallino.
Hace a few weeks began as a rumor that we were not at all convinced of its veracity, but now the Italian brand has officially confirmed: Ferrari will manufacture an SUV.
The confirmation came on the part of Sergio Marchionne, if the same Marchionne who makes little more than a year told us that for that Ferrari will launch an SUV someone had to shoot first. Now the manager said in an interview that Ferrari will have a model with 4 doors and 4 seats.
The chief executive of Ferrari named this new model as a “FUV” (Ferrari Utility Vehicle), a vehicle that will keep intact the DNA of Ferrari, but possibly add some typical features of suvs, such as the driving position and elevated, plus enough space for passengers and their luggage.
Although it is still soon to know how it will look outside, will not expect anything “normal” in terms of design, that is to say that not necessarily the car will carry the traditional hallmarks of the SUVs.
As a good Ferrari will be luxurious, exotic and fast and your price will only be in the range of just a few. In terms of its mechanical, probably the new model adopted by the V8 engine the Ferrari Portofino, although we must not rule out a V12.
of course, this novelty will not be received well by some enthusiasts of the Italian brand, but from the commercial point of view, charges a lot of sense, since could be transformed into the model more sold of Ferrari, which will to achieve the desired goal of 10,000 units produced per year.
Porsche the recipe has worked very well with the Cayenne and later with the Macan, and even Lamborghini is heading in the same direction with the Urus and a new sedan of four doors, while Aston Martin does with the DBX.
