Lamborghini already had an SUV for sale more than 25 years ago and today Porsche's Cayenne is a global success. Ferrari hesitated for a long time but has now decided to develop the world's fastest SUV, or so says our Italian contact with insider info. Our DTP expert than set to work with this information and produced the following renderings. The project has been coded the "Ferrari FS 599 Fuoristrada" and its supposed world debut target date is the Geneva Auto Show 2010.

While the five-door will feature four-wheel drive its off-road capabilities are not among the top priorities of the Ferrari development team. Two-thirds of the engine's power is rumored to be transferred to the wide 22-inch high-performance street tires in the rear.

The engine is familiar and hails from the Ferrari F599 Fiorano, albeit in slightly modified form. Its maximum power output of more than 600 hp and 600 Nm of torque will be a challenge for the size 315 tires front and back.

Despite an empty weight of around 2.2 tons the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h is supposed to take less than five seconds, thanks to Formula 1-type shift paddles on the steering wheel. Targeted top speed is 300 km/h.

With a top speed such as this the Ferrari FS 599 Fuoristrada would easily eclipse the performance of a Porsche Cayenne Turbo, just as easily as it would eclipse its price at projected 250,000 Euros plus.

Perhaps I will be in the minority, but I like the look of it, or I would if it wasn't a Ferrari. I'm not sure if Ferrari should go down the SUV route, but it's certainly a hell of a lot better looking than the Cayenne. However if I had 250K euro's to spend I'd probably buy a used 599 GTB and a used Audi Q7 V8.

Oh no!! They can't do that!! You want an SUV, buy a Jeep. You want a sportscar, buy a Ferrari. Do one thing, do it well.

I agree with Capt. Pete. I certainly hope they never seriously consider building something like this. Although the current front story on FML relates negative opinions about Ferrari's pursuit of the almighty $. If so, who knows what what the future may hold?

There's probably already drawings in existance for a 599 or 612 SUV conversion for a wealthy Sultan or Prince.

The only customising R.A.P.E do is is when we drive clients cars into other cars or large objects, or when Pete takes is 14 Lb hammer to a car.
I know we are highly skilled, but coachbuilding is a bit beyond us yet. Although if anyone is willing to let us experiment on their Ferrari, we will give it a go.
Spider conversions should be quite simple, all we need is a good electric saw. Come to think about it, we could use the saw to cut a ferrari in half, add a few feet and some rear doors, and we are on the way to a 4 door SUV.
Any volunteers?

Archie, we could just take the body off my Jeep CJ7 and put the body of your 328 on it. We'll put the CJ7 body on the 328 chassis and we have the best of both worlds. A Ferrari that can go through 2 feet of mud and a Jeep that can take twisty roads at 90 mph.

Lambo tried that a few years ago with the LM 002 and it did not really work.

This concept sends shivers down my spine. It is absolutely galling.

it looks horrible, if you ask me

but then again, the Cayenne looks horrible and that didn't stop Porsche from producing it!
