 Will It Drift? See A Ferrari Purosangue Take On The Snow Slopes

by Sebastien Bell

Despite sporting the prancing horse emblem on its hood, a powerful V12 engine, and an impressive output of 715 horsepower (533 kW/724 PS), it’s hard not to feel a little jaded about the upcoming Ferrari Purosangue and its role in the lineup. However, a couple of individuals may have discovered the ideal location for the Italian super-SUV.

In a collection of videos posted to a number of channels recently, the Ferrari Purosangue can be seen driving in snowy climes, up high on what appears to be a ski hill. Although little is shared about the location, it’s not hard to imagine the new crossover being at any of a number of fancy European skiing resorts.

Indeed, the vehicle proves itself to be pretty adept at handling the conditions, doing elegant donuts and singing its V12 song loud enough to be heard across the alpine valleys of Europe’s fanciest winter playgrounds.

It’s not necessarily that the vehicle needs 715 hp (533 kW/724 PS) to do donuts in the snow – any car that powers the rear wheels and has more than a handful of horses can do it – it’s more that it’s hard to imagine many other Ferraris on a ski hill, much less driving around one comfortably.

For those who have been avoiding reading about the Purosangue, well, too bad! It’s powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine that makes the above-mentioned sum of power, as well as 528 lb-ft (715 Nm) of torque, and it can rev all the way up to 8,250 rpm.

Not all of that power necessarily makes it to the rear wheels, though. The power is sent to an all-wheel-drive system through a rear-mounted eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. That all helps the car get to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.3 seconds.

In addition to powering all four wheels, it also has four seats, the better to haul your kids and their stuff around with. And that seems to have convinced luxury car buyers to shell out their $398,350 for the SUV, because Ferrari stopped taking orders after filling its first two years of orders.
