Say it ain’t so—a Ferrari SUV is reportedly on the table as the market for SUVs and crossovers continues to grow over traditional sedans and cars.
The report comes after Ferrari chief, and FCA CEO, Sergio Marchionne stated he’d rather be shot than see Ferrari produce a sport utility vehicles. Either the new report comes on no basis, or things have changed significantly inside the prancing horse.
But, the sources are credible. Car Magazine reports the utility vehicle will arrive in 2021 and is being referred to with a codename of F16X. Additionally, it will be built alongside the next-generation GTC4 range. It will effectively be an all-new replacement for the Ferrari FF, according to the publication’s sources.
The SUV is said to feature suicide doors and no B-pillar to not only look stunning but provide easy access to the rear seats.
A V8 gasoline-powered engine and hybrid options are said to round out powertrain choices, while a V12 engine skips the soft-road Ferrari. If and when the project comes to see the light of day, the F16X will do battle with the Lamborghini Urus and Aston Martin DBX.
2021 is the reported date for the Ferrari SUV and insiders say it won’t be cheap either. Expect a price around $341,000.
