Codenamed F16X, even the Ferrari SUV/crossover/high-sided automobile is going to be a companion vehicle of this GTC4Lusso successor, itself an immediate descendant of this Ferrari FF, Ferrari’s initial all-wheel-drive motor vehicle.
()Ah, it is all coming together today. The FF was a trojan horse.
()In case the 2021 Ferrari F16X comes into fruition, it is going to be on the trap dead bodies of those Ferrari executives that have denied the chance of a Ferrari SUV. “We won’t play SUVs,” present CEO Sergio Marchionne said before this year at Geneva. “It is not that we are not likely an SUV for today — we are not likely one whatsoever,” former CEO Amadeo Felisa stated in Frankfurt at 2015.
()However, a Ferrari SUV has been rumored, along with the rumors have been stoked when advertising main Nicola Boari discussed at length before this season the manner by that a Ferrari SUV would should make a new section.

()The Maserati Levante also arrived as Maserati’s initial utility car. Although perhaps not Maserati’s best seller in the usa, the Levante has allowed Maserati to report that a 30-percentage year-over-year earnings increase despite having a 19-percentage fall in earnings of their Ghibli, GranTurismo, also Quattroporte this season.
()Rolls-Royce finds the requirement approaching, even though the BMW-owned British limousine builder needs the Cullinan to become known as a high-sided motor vehicle.
()Lamborghini, also, is jumping on the bandwagon. The Urus is anticipated to double the volume of the brand.
()Meanwhile, (**),CAR states, Ferrari will rely on the F16X to deliver up the brand to approximately (*************************************), respectively000 earnings five years from today, double the amount of earnings Ferrari’s supercars handled in 2016.
