As it celebrates its 75th year in the automotive business, Ferrari is going where it has never gone before with a four-door, four-seater car. 

The Purosangue, which translates to “thoroughbred” in Italian, isn’t your usual family drive, with the brand promising it will “change the landscape of performance vehicles across the globe.” 

While popular, the company’s two-seater supercars admittedly aren’t the most suitable for daily life, especially for those ferrying around more than one passenger. Now, drivers won’t have to choose between style and practicality, with the release offering both in a single vehicle.

According to the automaker, the Purosangue was designed to be as aerodynamic as possible, featuring a range of new innovations, including updated vehicle dynamic control systems and the debut of active suspension technology using the brand’s Multimatic True Active Spool Valve (TASV) system. 

One of the car’s standout features is its rear-hinged passenger doors, known as “welcome doors,” which will allow riders to move in and out of the vehicle without the need for more space. 

Plus, the vehicle will sport the largest-ever rear found on a Ferrari, together with luxuries such as heated seats for more comfortable rides, and a high-end Burmester audio system for road trip tunes.

Performance-wise, the car can go from zero to 62 mph in just 3.3 seconds, and up to 125 mph in as little 10.2 seconds. 

Boasting a 6.5 liter, V-12 engine, drivers will enjoy a “seemingly never-ending” amount of power under the accelerator, with eight-speed, dual clutch transmission and 812 Competizione cylinder heads promising that oh-so-attractive roar. 

Despite its focus on speed and luxury, the Purosangue was also designed with sustainability in mind.

In fact, 85% of the car’s launch trim comes from eco-friendly sources, such as its fabric roof lining being made from recycled polyester, and the plush carpet comprising polyamide derived from recycled fishing nets.
