Right here comes the inevitable comparability of arguably the three prime tremendous SUVs obtainable at the moment. Nevertheless, we should acknowledge that this is not actually an apples-to-apples matchup. It might sound that manner initially, however the Purosangue lives a really completely different existence, and never simply by way of worth. Preserve 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 at the same time as just lately as 10 years in the past we would 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 automobile, however Ferrari backs up the declare with a Purosangue that contains a decrease stance, has higher weight distribution, and gives 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, specifically the DBX707 and Urus Performante. These are the trim ranges for which we’re evaluating the Purosangue, which may itself evolve to supply an upgraded model sooner or later. Therefore our disclaimer about this probably not being an excellent comparability, however such as you, we’re curious to see how every little thing stacks up proper now. So let’s get to it.
Energy And Efficiency
That is what everybody needs to know, and the Purosangue holds almost all of the aces. Emphasis there may be almost, 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.
|Car||Engine/Transmission||Horsepower||Torque||0-62 MPH||Prime Pace|
|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.
|Car||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|
Dimension And Area
So far, the Purosangue has posted robust stats that favor efficiency. This is the place the scales tip within the different path, as a result of that decrease stance and weight benefit comes at a value of comfort. It may be 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 stated, Ferrari does supply the Purosangue with hill descent management for these occasions you enterprise off the crushed path.
|Car||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 affordable, however that is the place to begin for the Aston Martin DBX707 and it is almost half the price of the Ferrari.
|Lamborghini Urus Performante||$260,676|
|Aston Martin DBX7-7||$232,000|
With an approximate beginning worth of $400,000, the Purosangue is even pricier than the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, a automobile 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.
