Watch a Ferrari Purosangue being thrashed around a racetrack

We already knew the Ferrari Purosangue was potent, but we didn't realize just how capable it was – that was until we saw this video.

We’re willing to bet not many Ferrari Purosangue owners will take their SUV to the racetrack.

Despite having the power and pedigree, it’s likely to be a rare sight on a track day.

Thankfully, a video has been captured giving us a small taste of what it’s capable.

Said video was recorded at the Fiorano Circuit by none other than Varryx.

To say the Ferrari Purosangue was put through its paces would be an understatement.

Although it was a quick stint, the test driver squeezed every inch of performance out of the SUV at the Italian course.

What really took us by surprise is just how stable and planted the Purosangue looks.

Despite its size and heft, there’s very little body roll and it stays quite flat when cornering.

Thanks to its four-wheel steering system, the Purosangue is able to rotate around tight corners with relative ease and, when pushed hard enough, the rear end steps out.

On straights, the Ferrari Purosangue looks a force to be reckoned with.

The thunderous 6.5-liter naturally-aspirated V12 not only makes a heavenly soundtrack, but it pumps out 715hp and 528 lb-ft of torque.

That’s enough to rocket the SUV from zero to 62 miles per hour (0-100 km/h) in 3.3 seconds and on to a top speed of 192 miles per hour (309 km/h).

That level of performance comes with a premium, though.

The Ferrari Purosangue will set you back $398,350, which makes it one of the most expensive SUVs on the market.

That’s not taking into account the possible gas-guzzler tax, which can be as high as $7,700 for vehicles that return less than 12.5 miles per gallon.

If – and it’s a big if – Ferrari chooses to classify the Purosangue as an SUV in the US, that tax will obviously be removed.

We’re not actually sure why the Ferrari Purosangue was on the track.

Perhaps it’s a continuation of the car’s development or Ferrari is working towards setting an official lap time at the circuit.

Either way, the Purosangue performance potential was enough to set our hearts racing.
