Ferrari have revealed an all new model called the FF. Designed to take over the 612 Scaglietti’s role of four-seat grand tourer, the FF comes complete with a new direct-injected 6.3-litre V12 engine, and - a first for Ferrari - all-wheel drive.
The all wheel drive system, named 4RM, weighs 50 per cent less than a conventional four-wheel drive system, according to Ferrari. The FF also comes with the latest in electronic stability programmes, which includes an intelligent torque distribution system, as well as a magnetorheological damping system and all new Carbon-ceramic brakes from Brembo.
As mentioned before, the FF gets an all new 6.3-litre V12 engine, which produces 650hp at 8000rpm, and 503lb ft of torque at 6000rpm - no turbos here. The new engine follows the path of the 458 Italia and is also connected to an F1 dual-clutch transaxle. This allows the FF to get from 0-60mph in 3.7 seconds, while top speed is a claimed 335km/h (208mph).
Other numbers include a combined fuel consumption figure of 15.4 l/100km, and CO2 emissions of 360g/km. Ferrari also claim a weight distribution of 47:53 front to rear. The FF’s dry weight is also quoted at 1,790kg (about 3,938 lbs).
The Pininfarina-designed FF is set to make an appearance this March at the Geneva Motor Show.
