Despite the internet’s dislike for SUVs, the Ferrari Purosangue has received too high of a demand that has forced Ferrari to stop taking orders for it. The high demand has also caused the waiting time for the Purosangue to last for up to two years for some customers.
During its world debut, Ferrari had already announced that production of the Purosangue will be capped at 20% of overall output, which means only one in five Ferraris made is the Purosangue.
This serves to retain a certain level of exclusivity for its “first-ever four-door four-seater” that happens to be high riding. It seems that the high demand has not changed Ferrari’s mind about its production cap.
Speaking to drive.com.au, Ferrari Chief Marketing and Commercial Officer, Enrico Galleria said, “It’s no secret that we stopped taking orders. We had such an interest without delivering one single car. We made a decision that we thought was consistent with the positioning of Ferrari and the model.”
Recently, the Ferrari Purosangue debuted in Australia together with the Ferrari Daytona SP3 at Universo Ferrari in Sydney. The Ferrari Purosangue made its world debut in September and is the first of its kind from Maranello.
