Four-Wheel-Drive Ferrari FF Revealed

Fri, 08/12/2011 - 02:19

The world’s first four-wheel-drive Ferrari also happened to be the first shooting brake Ferrari in the world as well!

We’re talking about the new Ferrari FF which was revealed just yesterday ahead of its official premier at Geneva Motor Show in March. The car is a replacement for the 612 Scaglietti and like that car, it’s a proper four-seater luxurious Ferrari.

The car promises extremely sporty, has high-performance character with incredible versatility, superb comfort and sophisticated elegance, guaranteeing both driver and passengers an absolutely unique driving experience. This is set to be the most practical Ferrari ever made.

The power comes from a 6.3 liter V12 engine with a colossal 660 hp and 630 Nm of torque which means it can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and keep on going to reach 335 km/h top speed. Of course at 15.4 liter/100km is not economical and with 360 CO2 emissions it certainly is not green but who cares!

Here’s some technical details if you’re interested: 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.

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 car has a cargo space of 450 liters extendable to 800 liters.
