Is Ferrari making an SUV? Say it’s not so Sergio


It happened with Maserati, and Lamborghini, could it even happen with Ferrari? Rumors circulating overseas and particularly a report in Car Magazine UK suggests that a variation of the GTC4 Lusso may have all wheel drive architecture with a petrol V8 hybrid engine.

Seems that Sergio Marchionne has commissioned a design team to investigate the possibility and the vehicle has a code name – F16X. And to me it’s no surprise – the luxury SUV segment has kicked in 2017 and it’s arguably a segment that Maranello could increase their volumes in line with Marchionne’s target of 12,000 vehicles per annum.

Car is reporting that the vehicle will have an increased ride height and feature a coupe-like shape. Suggestions that the crossover could receive pillarless suicide rear doors to allow easy access to the rear seats.

The report suggests that pricing will be in the vicinity of $USD340,000 which translates to around $AUD600,000 if it ever arrives in Australia.(plus on road costs of course)

Herbert Appleroth won’t comment at the moment of course, but it seems that Car Magazine UK has someone inside the Maranello walls who are leaking some spicy information.

Hello and welcome to my new website!

I know that there’s a lot of websites that offer car reviews, car road tests, opinions on various cars and the like. What makes this site different is that I’m not going to bore you with technical information about the various cars that I review.

I’ve been in the car business for over 39 years. I’ve read the motoring magazines cover to cover. I’ve read the online reviews until my eyes were square. Everywhere that I go, I find motoring journalists talking about car speeds – 0 – 100 km per hour, standing ¼ times, the inclination of this and that at 150klm per hour on a 12.5% gradient curve, in rainy weather – and other stuff that bores me no end. is taking a different path on the journey to helping you purchase a new car. I’ll do my best to advise you on what I consider to be the most important information when it comes to that major decision to purchase a car. Interior room, features of the car, fuel economy, safety, service prices, resale and lots more. I’ll tell you what I like about a particular car and as importantly, what I don’t like, to find at least to be less than I think a car should have. .

And I’ll ask for your opinion. Take some pics of what you’re driving and tell me and our audience what you particularly like or dislike about your car. Because besides prospective new car buyers, there’s a lot of people who’ll read your comments as used car buyers.

So, jump on board, strap yourself in and let’s start out on the journey with The Car Guy.
