Ferrari Reveals the FF: Ferrari Four

Ferrari FF

This is Ferrari’s new FF. It’s four wheel drive, has a direct-injected 651 hp V12 and from the side looks like a cross between the Ferrari California and a BMW Z3 Coupe. The FF is slated to replace the much dated Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, a car that never garnered much respect from the automotive press. Sure it was big, and yes it was fast but it was slab-sided and bland. That’s a combination that doesn’t bode well when your a member of the most revered family in automotive history. The new FF seeks to reverse that, and as Ferrari’s new flagship, I think it accomplishes that task rather well. Its body lines are beautifully contoured and have a very organic flow, and even though the car does in fact have four seats and room for golf clubs, it doesn’t look big and chunky like its predecessor.

Jalopnik is reporting that the four-wheel drive system is said to weigh less than 50% then that of traditional units and adapts to any terrain that the car encounters. Performance numbers are what you’d expect from a car of this caliber as well: 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 208 mph. It should be interesting to see how the FF’s more youthful looks resonate with those Ferrari buyers who purchased the 612 Scaglietti. Right now all we have are pictures, but rest assured that full reviews will be coming soon.

    Didn’t BMW do this shape already…in the form of a Z4 coupe..similar lines at least. Something I do not expect from a top of the line auto manufacturer.

    To me it looks more like Porsche Panamera + BMW X6M. Which looks nothing like a Ferrari (or at least what one’s supposed to look like).

    Haha what a fugly looking POS! That has to be the ugliest Ferrari I have ever seen. It looks like the back is from a AMC Gremlin. Stick 2 more doors on it and you got a wagon..
