Why do they do this?

 By: jp884 : September 13th, 2022-22:00
So the FF and the GTC4Lusso were bad sellers and they decide to double down and make an SUV? Didn't like it when Lamborghini did it and I don't like it here. But that's just my humble opinion.

Plus 1

Not a fan to tag this as a ferrari

 By: TeutonicCarFan : September 13th, 2022-22:35
But v12 sport suv is interesting. Could be under a different Marque. I believe urus makes a lot of money for lambo. Personally I'd love a gt4lusso

Hate that they are making an SUV…

 By: APROchrono : September 13th, 2022-22:47
… but what an SUV! Would I drop $400k on a Ferrari SUV - hell no - but I can see this being totally sold out and taking massive share from the Urus and the Cayenne. Oh and I am sure Enzo is rolling in his grave!

Well even if it's not a hot seller, Ferrari will force their collectors to buy them to be considered for their more desirable cars like they did the FF.

 By: jp884 : September 13th, 2022-22:51
And collectors will buy them just to stay in favor with the dealership. And sell it back at a $50-100k loss but that's just the name of the game. But Ferrari doesn't charge ADM but they get their pound of flesh in other ways.

True that!

 By: InHavenPro : September 13th, 2022-23:15

Yup. This is how the game has been played for the past decade or so.

You scratch my back. I'll scratch yours.


 By: InHavenPro : September 13th, 2022-23:14
I'm not sure what to say other than par for the course........

I'm curious...

 By: patrick_y : September 13th, 2022-23:35
Is the AWD system similar to the FF? Where there's a second transmission ahead of the engine? I basically see this as a practical Ferrari sedan/station wagon - a high bodied sedan/station wagon. I still find the Rolls-Royce to be the leader in this sedan ... 

Yeah, but....

 By: InHavenPro : September 13th, 2022-23:55
this one, idiosyncratic as it is, is still ostensibly a 'driver's car', Rollses are predominantly made to be chauffeured in....

True. But that Wraith is just so darn good.

 By: patrick_y : September 14th, 2022-00:02
The Wraith is actually much better than anyone would expect. It's actually a seriously fun car to drive. And the Ghost which is about 6 inches longer isn't bad at all (although not nearly as fun as the Wraith). Both cars suffer some dive when braking, but... 

Interesting indeed.

 By: InHavenPro : September 14th, 2022-00:28
The only people I've seen drive themselves in Rollses in LA are basketball players, some musicians and the like.... I've been inside a couple myself, but never driven one. It frankly didn't leave me with a desirable driving impression from what it felt li... 

Can't say I've ever driven them hard...

 By: patrick_y : September 14th, 2022-18:45
All of the RR vehicles I drove were company cars and not my own. So I never drove them extremely aggressively on a racetrack. But the Wraith was truly a wonderful product. Other than dive under braking, it was a great combination of sportiness, comfort, p... 

+1 on Cullinan

IMHO this will sell like crazy

 By: Gelato Monster : September 14th, 2022-00:43
I dont like it but it will be a good flip if you can secure early delivery


 By: InHavenPro : September 14th, 2022-01:31
all the stay-at-home trophy wives who can go get their weekly batch of Whole Foods (or whatever else) in one of these x)). That's the primary demographic for them in L.A. ....

get some for your trophy inamoratas

 By: Gelato Monster : September 14th, 2022-11:04
and secure your spot for next LaFerrari

Meh. That’s all I can muster.

Gutsy name

 By: blau : September 14th, 2022-03:14
Takes a lot of chutzpah to put a mongrel like that out into the limelight and call it the "pure blood."

It should be called the melanzana

 By: Arronax : September 14th, 2022-03:35
No doubt it will sell well but the side profile and smooth surface really makes me think of an eggplant, who knows maybe they do offer a deep purple for the veggies out there! Fact: I recently called a leading ferrari dealer and they had nothing up for sa... 

🙏 Amen 🙏

Also, I wouldn’t say extremist but rather a purist.

Minority view?

 By: Blue and White : September 14th, 2022-08:56
In my opinion, this car looks great. Athletic, stylish, powerful yet sufficiently elegant as compared to the competitors (Lambo, Aston, Bentley?). Well done Ferrari!

Nice Mazda CX 5

 By: @lberti : September 14th, 2022-09:10

I’ll say…nice observation!!!

 By: amanico : September 15th, 2022-07:08

Haha ... now I know why I like this Ferrari ...

 By: bimbeano : September 15th, 2022-20:56
... always been a fan of the CX-5


 By: amanico : September 15th, 2022-21:28

I actually really like it !

 By: bimbeano : September 16th, 2022-06:23
It will off course have loads of Ferrari-DNA ... as 'they' say ... who is they btw ? Ferrari doesn't see it as an SUV and I believe they are already sold out, as another friend of me mentioned ... mister Ferrari would be proud because this car will also b...
