The ‘FF’ is also Ferrari’s first four-wheel drive car and will essentially replace the 612 Scaglietti, which frankly, I never found all that appealing.
Under the bonnet lies a 12-cylinder, 6.3–litre direct injection engine that develops 485 kW (651 HP) with 682 Nm of torque and can sprint from 0-100km/h in 3.7 seconds.
On board is Ferrari’s electronic dynamic control system and working in concert with the four-wheel drive system, known as 4RM, the FF should deliver exceptional high-performance handling in a wide-range of road conditions.
Weight should be down too as the 4RM system weighs up to 50 percent less than traditional four-wheel-drive systems. Other performance enhancing features include the magnetorheological damping system (SCM3) and Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes.
There is no doubt whatsoever, that the ‘FF’ will be another hit model for Ferrari. If only I had the money…
The FF will debut at the 2011 Geneva motor show.
