Ferrari FF Unveiled – AWD Shooting Brake

Behold the magnificence of a brand-new Ferrari! This is the Ferrari FF – or F Four – which has just been unveiled at Ferrari’s website. The FF is a truly shocking car which in many terms is a first for Ferrari. It is the first production shooting brake Ferrari, and it’s the first four-wheel-drive Ferrari. The only thing it shares with the 612 that it replaces  is the four-seater layout.

The new Pininfarina design looks very close to the 458 Italia at front, but it’s chunkier and to be honest less elegant. The rear-end is very unique though. But still, it’s pretty hard to digest a hatchback Ferrari! You have to give it some time until it grows on you. Ferrari says the FF is extremely sporty, has high-performance character with incredible versatility, superb comfort and sophisticated elegance, guaranteeing both driver and passengers an absolutely unique driving experience.

Like the outgoing 612, the Ferrari FF is powered by a V12, a new 6,262 cc direct injection engine which develops 660 CV at 8,000 rpm and is mated to a transaxle dual-clutch F1 gearbox. It accelerates form 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, so despite being a sort of family Ferrari it is still very very fast.

The FF features the company’s first ever four-wheel drive system. Ferrari’s exclusive, patented 4RM (four-wheel drive) weighs 50 per cent less than a conventional four-wheel drive system, maintaining perfect weight distribution (53 per cent over the rear axle). Completely integrated with the car’s electronic dynamic control systems, the four-wheel drive technology delivers record levels of performance on all terrains and in all conditions via continuous and intelligent predictive torque distribution to all four wheels. The FF is also equipped with the latest magnetorheological damping system (SCM3), as well as the most recent development in carbon-ceramic brakes from Brembo.

But the FF is not about tire-shredding performance, but rather comfort and convenience. I mean it offers 450 litres extendable to 800 liters of boot space which is very impressive. A vast array of personalisation options and accessories has been developed for the FF. These include six model-specific exterior colours and sumptuous interior trim incorporating specially selected and treated aniline leather.

Currently we only have these three shots of the Ferrari FF, but it will be fully revealed at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.
