Ferrari focuses on supercars plus an SUV

Industry

Ferrari is in the midst of a product offensive that includes serious high- performance supercars. In 2019 alone, Ferrari has unveiled the F8 Tributo coupe and convertible, the 812 GTS and the SF90 Stradale, the most powerful road Ferrari to date, with 986 hp.

But the most anticipated Ferrari product isn’t its supercar — it’s an SUV, the Purosangue. Scheduled to arrive as soon as 2022, the Purosangue will be the latest SUV to join the exotic and ultraluxury realm, following the likes of Bentley, Lamborghini, Rolls-Royce and Aston Martin’s upcoming offering.

Portofino: Launched last year, Ferrari’s entry-level model carries on.

F8 Tributo: Ferrari’s latest iteration of its largest-volume model was unveiled this year in Geneva and is expected to go on sale at the end of the year. It features a 710-hp V-8 turbo midengine, the most powerful V-8 production engine to date. The car’s name (tributo is Italian for “tribute”) is a reference to the turbocharged 3.9-liter V-8 engine that won an International Engine of the Year award four years running in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.

The F8 convertible was unveiled in September, with deliveries to start next year.

812 Superfast and GTS: The 812 GTS marks the return of a 12-cylinder spider in the series-production range after 50 years, Ferrari said. The last in that lineage was the 1969 365 GTS4, also known as the Daytona Spider because of Ferrari’s victory in the 1967 24 Hours of Daytona. The GTS is the convertible version of the 812 Superfast, unveiled in September in Maranello. Deliveries will start in 2020. Both versions are powered by a naturally aspirated V-12.

Monza: Based on the 812 Superfast, the Monza is a retro-styled supercar that comes in one- and two-seat configurations — the SP1 and SP2, both of which were first shown last year. They offer 810 hp and have a lightweight carbon-fiber body. Ferrari will build fewer than 500 combined over a two-year production run.

The two Monza models are part of the Icona series, which refers to iconic Ferraris of the past. The next Icona is expected to be unveiled next year.

SF90 Stradale: Ferrari launched the hybrid V-8 midengine sports car in May, the automaker’s first series production plug-in hybrid. It pairs a 769-hp turbocharged V-8 gasoline engine with three electric motors adding a combined output of 217 hp, for a total of 986 hp. Deliveries will start in the first half of 2020 in Europe and a few months later in the U.S.

Purosangue: The Purosangue, Ferrari’s entry into the SUV segment, is set to launch around 2022. It will sit on a front midengine architecture, one of two that will equip all future Ferraris, with a hybrid drivetrain, and new suspension with variable ground clearance.

GTC4Lusso: With an SUV coming, it remains unclear as to what will happen to the four-seater shooting brake.
