This Ferrari SUV Concept Teases What Could Have Been
Most cars wouldn’t look quite right as high-riding crossover vehicles. In turn, SUVs generally shouldn’t receive the low-slung look. However, as render artist Theophilus Chin proves with his Ferrari FX Crossover concept, the former just isn’t the case for Ferrari’s impactful grand tourer – the FF. The rendered crossover vehicle stays remarkably true to the Ferrari FF styling, but with the addition of second-row doors, a shortened hood, and a raised ride height. It’s a stunningly good design, and one that – if produced – would give the upcoming Lamborghini Urus SUV a run for its money. Interestingly, as you may have seen earlier in the week, Ferrari actually weighed the option of developing the FF as a full-on crossover instead of the luxury grand tourer we know today. And this is it. RELATED: Take a Closer Look at the 1,035HP Ferrari FXXK Hypercar
It’s called the F151 prototype, seen on the right, and according to Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, it was built by Giugiaro during the late 2000s while Ferrari was developing the all-wheel drive FF. Despite its high roof styling and larger hind quarters, the Ferrari likeness is still rather unmistakable, thanks to its pronounced hood and snout, chiseled sides and angular maw.
As for a real Ferrari SUV? We likely won't be seeing one of those anytime soon.
