Ferrari has released a short teaser video of a new V12 engine. While speculation is that it will be marked for the Purosangue SUV, the company is mum.

Motor1 points out that Ferrari uses the phrase “the heart of a thoroughbred” to advertise the engine, and “Purosangue” translates into “thoroughbred.” Ferrari also says the engine is slated for a “game-changing” vehicle, and well, a Ferrari SUV is certainly a game-changer.

A new is coming. Born without compromises, unmistakably Ferrari at heart. Powered by our iconic V12 engine. Stay tuned…

There is, sadly, no other evidence in the teaser video that shows which vehicle the engine will go in. Previous prototypes spotted in the wild seemingly had either a hybrid powertrain or a V8 underhood. Those two powertrain choices could always be options alongside an available V12.

We’ll know this summer when the Purosangue drops. As is often the case with Ferrari, look for the vehicle to be sold in limited numbers. Pricing has not yet been revealed.

    Really, a Ferrari SUV should be thought of as a GT car for the modern age.

    The 'panel gap' in that building facade is big enough to drive a truck through.

    Does anyone like the wrinkle finish on those valve covers?

      Yep. Me. The Colombo-engines had it from the start (of course they were black, back in the days).
