“And on the sidelines of the 2022 World Cup”…

Why this section? Because there are many new products this fall, and you certainly expect to see them all on our mini site « World of cars » in which you traditionally find new models from all manufacturers.

However, several manufacturers having chosen not to be present at this edition of the Paris Motor Show 2022, a certain number of new products will not be exhibited at Porte de Versailles in Paris, and in particular the one presented in this article. In order to give you an exhaustive vision and meet your expectations, we have nevertheless chosen to publish them in the mini-site Caradisiac dedicated to the Paris Motor Showbut in a special section “And on the sidelines of the Mondial de l’Auto”.

Only McLaren remains. From Porsche to Aston Martin via Lamborghini, Maserati, Rolls-Royce and therefore Ferrari, all the prestigious manufacturers have gotten into it. Even for the brand with the prancing horse that is literally crumbling under orders, already capable of selling more cars in the world each year than Lamborghini and Aston Martin without “cheating” with this kind of model, there is no longer any question of pass. The first SUV in Ferrari’s history, the famous Purosangue is on display before your eyes. Unsurprisingly, he’s more pleasing to the eye in these official images than in the gruesome stolen photos released a few months ago. Ferrari’s approach differs significantly from that of other brands in this area: while the latter only take over existing mechanical bases, the prancing horse brand manages on its own with a custom-designed aluminum chassis.

The profile evokes a plump Ferrari GTC4 Lusso, and with two pretty antagonistic doors in addition: unlike a Fiat 500e 3+1, a Mazda RX-8 or an American pick-up in “club-cab”, these pretty doors -suicide unfortunately do not allow pillars to be dispensed with between the front and rear seats. And room, there seems to be some in the two nice rear bucket seats. As for the front passenger, he has a large screen in front of him. The dashboard is ultra-modern in style but unlike all new family models on the market, there is no central screen!

Here is probably the only luxury car without a central screen on the market!

An exceptional V12 to start with

Under the hood, the Purosangue is very strong. While most ultra-sporty models on the market are content with a twin-turbo V8, the Italian dares the atmospheric V12. Taken from the GT 812 Superfast in a “deflated” version with 725 horsepower, this 6.5-litre block allows the machine to bring down the 0 to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds. Exactly like the new Lamborghini Manages Performance of 666 horsepower and the last Aston Martin DBX707 of 707 horsepower. Like its English rival, it reaches 310 km/h at top speed. The price of this big baby of 2033 kilos dry will flirt with 400,000€, well above the price of its competitors from Aston Martin, Lamborghini or Maserati. “Another SUV”, of course. But an SUV with such an engine – what’s more with a dual-clutch gearbox installed in the transaxle position – it still doesn’t run the streets. Ferrari definitely does not do things like the others…

Caradisiac, partner of the Paris Motor Show

As in 2018, Caradisiac is once again a partner in 2022 of the Mondial de l’Auto which will take place in Paris from October 17 to 23. The Caradisiac editorial team will thus be relocated to its own stand for the duration of the show to analyze, dissect, photograph and film all the new models. And this will of course also be an opportunity for you to come, as you are used to, to meet our journalists. Which new or used car to buy? They will answer all your questions. Until then, we will give you on Caradisiac all the information that we could have obtained from the manufacturers on their new models.
