1. Purosangue is Italian for “thoroughbred”.
2. The unconventional location of the headlights made it possible to create two air intakes above and below the DRL. The upper one is used to channel air into the complex blown system which vents underneath the front aerobridge. The lower one is used to channel air to cool the brakes.
3. The Purosangue doesn’t have a front grille – this is been replaced by a dihedral suspended on the lower section delivering a more technical aesthetic.
4. The Purosangue engine layout differs from other modern GTs in that it has a mid-front-mounted engine with the gearbox at the rear to create a sporty transaxle layout.
5. The Purosangue engine can deliver 80% torque even at low revs for unique driving pleasure at all times.
6. The Purosangue is the first Ferrari to get a new active suspension system that controls body roll in corners and help make the car deliver the same performance and handling response as its other sports cars.
7. Carbon-fibre roof is standard to keep weight down and lower the centre of gravity.
8. For the first time in Ferrari history, the cabin has four separate and independently adjustable seats. The heated electric seats will comfortably accommodate four adults. The boot is the largest ever on a Ferrari; rear seats fold to increase luggage space.
9. In a Ferrari first, owners are being offered the chance to personalise the roof of their car: they can opt for a full-length electrochromic glass roof instead of the carbon-fibre version offered as standard.
10. The Purosangue has an air quality sensor that can check the air outside the car and improve quality in the cabin by smart air recirculation control and use of filters that can prevent particles of up to PM2.5 from entering the car.
11. For the first time, the car offers compatibility with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay systems as standard. These substitute the traditional built-in navigation system.
12. The Purosangue doesn’t have a rear windscreen wiper. The rear screen is cleaned by the air flow along the glass surfaces at the rear. The lower surface of the suspended spoiler is curved to guarantee the air flow is at the right speed and direct it towards the rear screen.
13. Nero Purosangue is one of the launch colours and was developed specifically for this car using pigments that, in certain lighting conditions, create intense red reflections that enhance the car’s volumes.
14. Like other Ferrari models, the Purosangue is offered with an extended seven-year maintenance programme.
