2011 Goodwood Festival of Speed will see UK debuts of some very important supercars, like Lamborghini Aventador, or indeed the Ferrari FF.

The new FF will be present at the event alongside the California and the 458 Italia. These three cars showcase the variety Ferrari offers with a V12 AWD hatchback, a front-engined convertible and a mid-engined super GT.

As the main highlight of Ferrari stance, the FF takes central role as the company’s flaghip model. It is the first road car to take drive to the front wheels from the front of the crankshaft, rather than through a separate transfer case. The innovative and patented 4RM system weighs 50 per cent less than a conventional four-wheel drive system and ensures perfect weight distribution (47:53) for the optimum driving performance that clients expect from a Ferrari, even for a Grand Tourer with four seats.The car’s powered by the new 6,262cc direct injection engine which develops 660hp at 8,000 rpm. In tandem with its transaxle dual-clutch F1 gearbox, stunning acceleration (0-62mph in 3.7sec) is guaranteed, with top speed of over 200 mph.
