If you had been told back in 2017 that one of the best-selling models of Lamborghini it would have been an SUV you probably never would have believed such a claim. Nevertheless Urus he was able to rewrite the rules of the game, as he prepares to do Ferrari Thoroughbred which already rejects the label of Sport Utility, defining itself FUV (Ferrari Utility Vehicle) even before showing itself in an official way but which will in fact represent the great antagonist of the high-wheeled model of the Toro. With all due respect to Aston Martin DBX707 who tried to get ahead but at least for now will compete a step lower than the cars of the two Motor Valley brands.
The eagerly awaited first high-wheeled model of the Cavallino will project the Maranello-based car manufacturer into a new era, with all due respect to the purists and those who invoke Enzo Ferrari. Times change and even the Red must do it, just as it has been able to renew itself in recent years with an increasingly technological and now also electrified range (waiting for the first full electric) that it has not lost sight of its distinctive DNA and above all that search for fun to drive. It will be the same with Ferrari Purosangue which will arrive on the market with the V12 under the hood, a move that represents a not indifferent business card for a model that is among the most anticipated and promises to be also the most discussed of this 2022. A few kilometers from Maranello, however, they have no intention of watching the consecration of their rivals and so also in Sant’Agata Bolognese they are working on an evolution of Urus that can raise the bar.
Covid and the crisis in the sector have perhaps slowed down the arrival of the new version of the super SUV of the Bull but now the opportunity has arisen to arrive on the market almost simultaneously with the Purosangue. It will not be a total revolution but a restyling that will bring some design innovations and light electrification. At the same time, however, a high-performance variant is also expected, an Urus Performante according to the latest rumors, which would bring the V8 to a power exceeding 800 hp. If the challenge between Ferruccio and the Drake started almost touching the ground, now the confrontation between Ferrari and Lamborghini moves a few centimeters higher, in the era of super SUVs. It will be Thoroughbred against Urus.
