With the launch of its new Purosangue model, Ferrari is the latest supercar manufacturer to capitalise on the SUV craze. But the Italians believe that their SUV would be “Unlike Any Other”.
There’s substance to backup that claim. Unlike most of its competitors, Ferrari opted to optimise the Purosangue’s weight distribution with a mid-front-mounted engine, coupled with a rear transaxle. Drive to the front wheels is provided by what Ferrari dubs its “Power Transfer Unit (PTU)”, coupled in front of the engine to provide a unique 4×4 transmission.
This allowed the engineers to create a 49:51 weight distribution, determined to be optimal for such a layout.
