Ferrari FF Revealed

Wednesday, 9 February 2011

Ferrari has bowed to international pressure from hundreds of thousands of fans worldwide intrigued by the prospect of a four wheel drive Ferrari and released the first pictures of the new Ferrari FF in action in the frozen wastes of Finland before it makes its public debut – somewhat appropriately – in Switzerland at the Geneva International Motor Show in March.

With 660 bhp on tap from a new 6.2 litre V12 engine, the Ferrari FF can blast its four occupants to 100 kmh in just 3.7 seconds on dry tarmac.

However, this sort of performance would be rather more than handful on sheet ice and deep snow for any other supercar, but thanks to the new Ferrari 4RM four wheel drive system, it handles these conditions with the same aplomb as it does a race track.

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.

Performance aside, Maranello’s latest model also offers standards of passenger space, comfort, in-car spec and equipment previously unheard of in such a high-performance car. It can comfortably accommodate four people and their luggage, thanks to the best cabin space and boot capacity (450 litres extendable to 800) figures in its category, including four-door cars.

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.

The FF, which will make its official debut in occasion of the upcoming Geneva Motor Show (3-13 March 2011) and arrive in Australia and New Zealand in early 2012, when full local pricing and specification will be announced.
