A completely new car by Ferrari, shooting break design, four wheel drive, and it can seat 4 people. The FF, an acronym for Ferrari Four, has a new direct-injection 6.3L V12 engine that produces 651 hp and 504 lbs of torque.

The FF comes with an all new, very advanced, four-wheel drive system, called the 4RM, and it is about 50% more advanced to the next most advance system, and this system and has a controller called 4RM control, with full integration of all controls, including the F1-Trac, E-Diff and PTU. The FF is to replace the 612 Scaglietti.

The Ferrari Four’s top speed is at around 208 mph, also making it one of the fastest Ferrari’s ever built. The FF can sprint 0-60 in a swift 3.6 seconds, then there’s the drivetrain, which is a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Though the FF doesn’t follow the tradition of being a 2 seater like many other Ferrari models made over the years, Ferrari aims to go into different markets with this car, for more sales of their cars.

Other features of this car include, magnetorheological damping system (SCM3) and Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes. The fuel efficiency is a MPG 15 combined and CO2 emissions are lower, to 360 gr/km, thanks to the o the HELE (High Emotions- Low Emissions) System which incorporates Stop&Start technology, which means that the car will shut off when it is not moving, for instance at a stop sign or stop light. The FF also comes with ABS/EBD and ESC.

It’s shooting brake design, meaning a 2 door estate, done by Pininfarina, was made to have more space for rear passengers and cargo space, to make it a much more practical car, while some people may speculate that the FF won’t be for everyone, based on height, as one of the few flaws with this car is lack of passenger space, but Ferrari claims that the FF can even comfortably seati tall passengers. 

The FF was first unviled at the 2011 Geneva Auto Show The price of the FF is said to be around $700,000 USD and to go on sale beginning of next year with the first models to be delivered to per-ordering customers.
