Ferrari SUV in the works, finally?

Ferrari SUV in the works, finally?

There are some things that Ferrari upstanding won’t do. Pink cars. Electric vehicles. SUVs. Well, about that concluding one…

There’s long been talk about Ferrari taking the leap and producing a utility instrument to rival the likes of the Porsche Cayenne (but, like, for way more money). Lamborghini has already gotten the tip-off with the upcoming Urus. Now, Car says that it can confirm that Ferrari is, in the gen, working on a crossover, and the project is codenamed F16X. The British magazine even has its own artist rendition of the rumored ute, though if that’s what the thing actually ends up looking like, we’ll eat our hat.

Car‘s sources in Maranello say that the instrument will be built alongside the next-gen GTC4 Lusso (current model pictured over) with aluminum architecture, that it’ll be a high-riding soft-roader, and thinks feature rear suicide doors with no B-pillar (picture a big opening to the after seats). It will have all-wheel drive, building on Ferrari’s experience with the FF and GTC4 Lusso. At the mercy of the hood will be a gasoline V8, possibly with a hybrid powertrain option.

The Ferrari F16X won’t be sale-priced, of course, and is expected to fetch about $342,000 at today’s exchange rates. We’re assuming that doesn’t account for the charge of inflation between now and 2021, when the CUV is expected to launch.

And don’t be surprised if Ferrari does all things it can to avoid using the words “crossover” or “SUV” in reference to the F16X.
