Right here comes the inevitable comparability of arguably the three prime tremendous SUVs obtainable in the present day. Nevertheless, we should acknowledge that this is not actually an apples-to-apples matchup. It may appear that approach initially, however the Purosangue lives a really totally different existence, and never simply when it comes to value. Hold this in thoughts as we discover the world of ultra-fast, ultra-exclusive, and ultra-expensive individuals movers.
And what a world it’s. Who would think about whilst just lately as 10 years in the past we might be speaking about 190-mph SUVs from Aston Martin, Lamborghini, and Ferrari? Truly, that is the primary level of competition, as a result of Ferrari is adamant that the Purosangue is not an SUV. Such branding is not unusual amongst automakers searching for to advertise a extra thrilling car, however Ferrari backs up the declare with a Purosangue that contains a decrease stance, has higher weight distribution, and affords extra energy than the competitors.
Talking of competitors, at roughly $400,000 it is also considerably costlier than even the upgraded variations of the DBX and Urus, particularly the DBX707 and Urus Performante. These are the trim ranges for which we’re evaluating the Purosangue, which might itself evolve to supply an upgraded model sooner or later. Therefore our disclaimer about this probably not being a fair comparability, however such as you, we’re curious to see how every part stacks up proper now. So let’s get to it.
Energy And Efficiency
That is what everybody needs to know, and the Purosangue holds practically all of the aces. Emphasis there’s practically, as a result of Ferrari’s official 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) time is only a tad behind the DBX707. Curiously, the Purosangue’s prime velocity is listed as being larger than 193 mph, the precise determine Aston Martin lists for its tremendous SUV.
|Automobile||Engine/Transmission||Horsepower||Torque||0-62 MPH||High Velocity|
|Ferrari Purosangue||6.5L NA V12 / 8-spd twin clutch with auto & guide mode||715 HP @ 7,750 RPM||528 lb-ft @ 6,250 RPM||3.3 Seconds||193+ MPH|
|Lamborghini Urus Performante||Twin-Turbo 4.0-liter V8 / 8-spd auto||666 HP @ 6,000 RPM||627 lb-ft @ 2,250 RPM||3.3 Seconds||190 MPH|
|Aston Martin DBX707||Twin-Turbo 4.0-liter V8 / 9-spd moist clutch with auto & guide mode||697 HP @ 6,000 RPM||663 lb-ft @ 2,750 RPM||3.1 seconds||193 MPH|
Weight And Stability
Energy is nothing if you cannot use it, and Ferrari is eager to maintain the Purosangue feeling like a supercar. We have already driven the DBX707 and know firsthand it is an distinctive machine that belies its dimension. Till we have had a go within the Urus Performante and Purosange, we do not know precisely how these stats will translate to actual life. However with the lightest curb weight of the bunch and a rear-biased weight distribution, Ferrari definitely has our consideration.
|Automobile||Wheels (Inches)||Brakes (Inches)||Weight (Curb)||Weight Distribution % (Entrance/Rear)|
|Ferrari Purosangue||22 entrance / 23 rear 255/35 – 315/30||15.6 Entrance / 15.0 Rear||4,482 lbs||49 / 51|
|Lamborghini Urus Performante||22 (23 non-compulsory) 285/40 – 325/35||17.3 Entrance / 14.5 Rear||4,740 lbs||NA|
|Aston Martin DBX707
||22 (23 non-compulsory) 285/40 – 325/35||16.5 Entrance / 15.4 Rear||4,940 lbs||52 / 48|
Measurement And Area
To this point, the Purosangue has posted sturdy stats that favor efficiency. Here is the place the scales tip within the different course, as a result of that decrease stance and weight benefit comes at a price of comfort. It is perhaps higher to think about the Purosangue as a four-door GTC4Lusso as a substitute of one thing within the crossover section, giving up cargo area and off-road functionality for on-road efficiency. That mentioned, Ferrari does supply the Purosangue with hill descent management for these occasions you enterprise off the overwhelmed path.
|Automobile||Wheelbase (inches)||Seats||Rear Cargo Area|
|Ferrari Purosangue||118.8||4||16.7 Cubic Ft|
|Lamborghini Urus Performante||118.3||4 or 5||20.3 Cubic Ft|
|Aston Martin DBX707||120.5||5||22.5 Cubic Ft|
We’re not suggesting $232,000 is reasonable, however that is the start line for the Aston Martin DBX707 and it is practically half the price of the Ferrari.
|Lamborghini Urus Performante||$260,676|
|Aston Martin DBX7-7||$232,000|
With an approximate beginning value of $400,000, the Purosangue is even pricier than the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, a car that does not actually come to thoughts as a Ferrari competitor. That is why it is robust to categorise this new Ferrari, however time will inform if patrons reply to one thing that certainly appears to be in a class all its personal.
