A revolutionary four-seater, four-wheel drive V12 Ferrari with exceptional performance and versatility has been revealed. It’s the company’s most powerful, versatile four-seater ever, as well as its first ever four-wheel drive car. The FF – an acronym for Ferrari Four (four seats and four-wheel drive) – ushers in an entirely new GT sports car concept. A decisive break with the past, the new car represents not so much an evolution as a true revolution.
This new V12 melds to an unprecedented level an extremely sporty, high-performance character with incredible versatility, superb comfort and sophisticated elegance, guaranteeing both driver and passengers an absolutely unique driving experience. Designed by Pininfarina, the shape and proportions perfectly interpret the FF’s harmonious blend of sporting DNA and extraordinary usability. The FF features the company’s first ever four-wheel drive (4RM) system which weighs 50 per cent less than a conventional four- wheel drive system and maintains perfect weight distribution (53% over the rear axle). Completely integrated with the car’s electronic dynamic control systems, Ferrari says 4RM 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. Exceptional performance levels come courtesy of the new 6,262 cc direct injection engine, which develops 660 CV at 8,000 rpm. In tandem with its transaxle dual-clutch F1 gearbox, stunning acceleration figures (0-100 km/h in 3.7 sec.) are guaranteed. The new model’s class-leading weight-to-power ratio of 2.7 kg/CV, along with its ideal weight distribution, ensures exceptionally responsive handling. The result is that owners will be able to enjoy the FF’s prowess over a wide range of uses: city driving, on low grip or snow-covered surfaces and on the track.
