Ferrari is currently developing its future hypercar
After a busy 2019 year with the F8 Tributo, the SF90 Stradale and the Roma, Ferrari is preparing for a much more relaxed 2020 year with no new models. The following year, however, will witness an important launch for the prancing horse brand, that of the Purosangue, which will bring Ferrari into the SUV adventure.
This SUV will be aimed at families who are looking for a vehicle even more spacious and practical than the GTC4 Lusso. The Purosangue will offer four real seats and will have under the hood a plug-in hybrid engine combining a V12 with an electric motor. The Purosangue will compete against the Lamborghini Urus, the Bentley Bentayga, the Rolls Royce Cullinan and the Aston Martin DBX.
However, according to Ferrari marketing director Enrico Galliera, the brand is currently working on the future hypercar that will arrive around the year 2022. Galliera also explained that the future hypercar would be no more powerful than the 986hp SF90 Stradale. The car will focus more on lightness, dynamism and aerodynamics.
It is not yet known which engine will be used in this future hypercar. Ferrari has not yet finished developing its naturally aspirated V12. But according to Galliera, it will be very complicated to add an electric motor that allows rechargeable hybridization. This would result in a heavier car and thus be contrary to the initial plan to make it lighter.
