Expensive and furious: how is the elite ranking with the 7 fastest SUVs in the world


The arrival of the Ferrari Purosangue burst into the exclusive brands. How was the podium?

The acronym


comes from

Sport Utility Vehicle

, which in Spanish translates as a sports utility vehicle.

And that last word is precisely the axis on which premium brands lean to stomp on the most popular segment of the market, appealing to the differential that best characterizes them: power, performance and maximum speeds unthinkable

for family vehicles.

Thus, the spiciest (and most expensive) SUVs of all embrace the typical qualities of the category, such as details of comfort and style for urban daily life, or even some off-road performance, and combine them with state-of-the-art engines and maximum benefits, which allow them to achieve figures worthy of a two-seater of those that are designed to compete on circuits.

Next, a review of

the 7 fastest SUVs

that today dominate the world of sports cars.

1- Ferrari Purosangue (310 km/h)

Ferrari Purosangue

The first four-door in the

Prancing Horse

catalog is the most powerful and fastest luxury crossover on the planet (along with the Aston Martin DBX707), and also

the most expensive: in Europe it costs almost 400 thousand dollars


In any case, the expectation that it generated in the entire stage prior to its launch meant that in just the first two months on the market it has already sold all the production planned for the next two years.

Ferrari Purosangue



is equipped with a

6.5-liter V12

that does not need turbochargers

and honors the sporting spirit of the brand: it allows it to accelerate

from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.3 seconds

from its 725 hp of power and 716 Nm of torque, with which it also reaches a maximum speed of 310 km/h.

This places it, along with the English model, at the top of the fastest SUV in the world.

2- Aston Martin DBX 707 (310 km/h)

The Aston Martin DBX707 exceeds 300 kilometers per hour.

It is not that the Purosangue has snatched first place, but it feels a bit like that: for two years, the SUV of the traditional English brand watched everyone from the top in absolute solitude, until one fine day Ferrari arrived to sit down at his side and share the throne.

Aston Martin DBX 707

It is that there was a technical draw between the two vehicles, in short: the

Aston Martin

takes the same

3.3 seconds as the Purosangue to reach 100 km/h

, and also declares the same 310 km/h top speed.

All thanks to its powerful 4-liter biturbo that delivers 700 hp and 916 Nm.

3- Lamborghini Urus Performante (306 km/h)

Lamborghini Urus.

Just for details, this variant of the Urus cannot sit at the same table as the two previous cases: although it registers another

3.3 seconds to move from 0 to 100 km/h, its maximum is just lower and is located at 306 km/h.

Lamborghini Urus, one of the fastest SUVs on the planet.

Perhaps it is its 200 kilos over the Purosangue that will end up relegating it in the final stretch, despite the efforts of

the house of Sant'Agata Bolognese

to make it even lighter than the standard Urus.

But that does not mean that it is not a sales success, and it has plenty of arguments to justify it, starting with its 666 hp and 850 Nm engine which, with

a four-wheel drive system

, tempts anyone who has more than US $215,000 to take it to his garage.

4- Bentley Bentayga Speed ​​(306 km/h)

Bentley Bentayga.

On the outside, and despite the cosmetic tweaks, the most furious version of this


still gives the image of a solemn and stuffy luxury car compared to those on the podium.

But on the track, its performance says it all: under the hood it hides a huge

6-liter W12 biturbo, with 635 HP of power

and no less than 900 Nm of torque, which allows it to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and achieve a maximum of 306 km/h.

5- Audi RS Q8 (305 km/h)

Audi RS Q8

As standard it comes electronically self-limiting to reach a maximum speed of 250 km/h, but with the Dynamic Plus pack this impediment is released and the car reaches 305 km/h.

A true 600 hp sports beast

that, despite measuring more than 5 meters long, goes from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds.

Audi RS Q8

6- Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT (300 km/h)

Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT

It has the same engine as the

Audi RS Q8

and Lamborghini Urus, but supercharged to put out 640bhp and 850Nm.

Available only in a coupe body, with the Sport Chrono package

it reaches 100 km/h in the same 3.3 seconds

as the top ones in the ranking, but with a top speed of 300 km/h.

These figures, however, did not prevent the 

most powerful SUV from the Stuttgart house

from dethroning the aforementioned Audi and setting a category record at the Nürburgring: 7'38" 925 was what it took to turn around one of the most demanding of the world.

7- Maserati Levante Trophy (302 km/h)

Maserati Levante

The top-of-the-range variant of this hyper-exclusive SUV accesses this list thanks to its

V8 Twin Turbo engine, a 3.8-liter with which it delivers 580 HP

and 730 Nm of torque.

Your numbers?

302 km/h top speed, and 4.1 seconds to go from rest to 100 km/h.
