What is a 2+2 Car Body Style?

Ferrari Purosangue overhead view

2 + 2 (or 2 plus 2) refers to the seating arrangement in a four-seat coupe. In the front, the driver and passenger seats are the same as any coupe model. The rear seats in a 2+2 are meant for occasional use and are smaller than those in a sedan or SUV body style. 

Smaller rear seats may not be meant for full-time passenger use, but they add undeniable functionality. Beyond accommodating additional passengers, the rear seats in a 2+2 are great for cargo. Baggage, shopping, and pets can also use a small back seat. 

A Brief Timeline of the Four-Seat Ferrari

Ferarri has been designing four-seat coupes since the 1959 release of the 250 GT/E. Ferrari Italy Vice President Enrico Galliera said the company’s founder, Enzo Ferrari, was a fan of the four-seat coupe’s added space. Since the 250 GT/E, Ferrari has released more than a dozen four-seat coupes. Below is a brief timeline of these models.

  • 1959: 250 GT/E
  • 1964: 330 GT 2+2
  • 1964: 365 GT 2+2
  • 1971: 365 GTC/4
  • 1972: 365 GT4 2+2
  • 1973: Dino 308 GT4
  • 1976: 400 GT
  • 1980: Mondial

While Ferrari has firmly established a history of beautifully designed 2+2s, the Purasangue is the first of its kind. 

Meet the Ferrari Purosangue 

The Purosangue is the premier four-door 2+2 by Ferrari. Designers combined the convenience of four doors with the arresting style of rear-hinged coach doors. The doors open to reveal more passenger space than the average four-door coupe. Where most 2+2s feature a cramped rear seat, the Purosangue interior offers two sporty bucket seats with adequate legroom. With 16.7 cubic feet of cargo space and practical rear seats, the Purosangue sports car does more than your average 2+2 model.
