Mechanically, the FF, with its innovative approach to on-demand all-wheel-drive, is everything you would expect from Ferrari. Should Ferrari have built such an all-season GT entry? It’s a debate that will go on in Ferrari circles for some time.
Video of the new Ferrari FF in action, showing this really is an all-weather, all-wheel-drive Ferrari.
Better in blue?
What the shape lacks in traditional Ferrari sexiness, it makes up in attention to detail, both inside and out. It truly is a car that looks better in person than in photographs.
The Mazda grin or something more sinister?
The 2012 Ferrari FF, despite its larger passenger cabin, is still a quick, nimble GT that has lost none of alacrity of the 612 Scaglietti it replaces. The factory reports that 0-100 km/h (62 mph) comes up in 3.7 sec. and that the car tops out at 208 mph.
At its heart, the FF is still a Ferrari.
The 6.3-liter direct-injected V-12 sends 660 bhp (at 8000 rpm) to the wheels via a 7-speed F1 dual-clutch gearbox and the 4RM awd system. The Ferrari FF boasts excellent torque, with 504 lb.-ft. on tap at 6000 rpm.
