After its launch in 2004, Ferrari's four-seat GT car, the 612 Scaglietti, finally takes a bow, to be replaced by a more extreme car that adds more 'fours' in the equation - four-wheel drive and even the name 'Four'. Say hello to the new FF


The arrival of a new Ferrari is always an important milestone in the automotive world. The little Italian company has been making sports cars since the late 40s which have really set the benchmark in terms of handling, power, aesthetics, driving pleasure and sheer desirability. And it’s no different for this latest Ferrari, the FF, but one can’t help but wonder where the usual pomp and circumstance that precedes the launching of a new prancing horse has gone. Unveiled rather discreetly on the Ferrari website, the FF, short for Ferrari Four, will replace the company’s incumbent four seater GT car, the 612 Scaglietti.

The FF represents a long line of firsts for the Prancing Horse, and the car’s name gives some of that away. The Four stands for four-seat, four-wheel drive, the latter of which is an absolute first for any Ferrari road car. The revolutionary 4RM four-wheel drive system is 50-percent lighter than most conventional four-wheel drive systems and maintains a near-perfect weight distribution with 53-percent over the rear axle. The system is also completely integrated with the car’s electronic dynamic control systems and is designed to deliver high levels of performance on all terrain, in all conditions via continuous predictive torque distribution to all four wheels. To top it off, the car also features the latest generation magnetorheological damping system (SCM3) to take the new thoroughbred’s handling to a whole new level.
Another first for Ferrari is the “hatchback-coupe”, better known as “shooting brake”, body styling for the FF which was penned by none other than renowned Italian design house Pininfarina. Enthusiasts would be quick to point out that such a unique body style was used by Ferrari in 1962 with the Ferrari 250 GT SWB “Breadvan”, but it was aerodynamic concerns that sprouted this one-of-a-kind racing car, while the FF’s body seeks to combine the beautiful flowing lines of a coupe to the practicality of a hatchback. The design, which also mimics Ferrari’s latest design language from the 458 Italia at the front end might be considered by most as rather quirky, but scores high marks on the sensibility scale thanks to the huge cabin space and boot space – a whopping 450 litres, which can be expanded to a cavernous 800 litres with the rear seats dropped. And just as a reference, this figure actually even beats most standard 4-door saloons.
But of course, no Ferrari is worthy of enough to carry the Prancing Horse badge unless it packs a real fire-breather of an engine. And the FF doesn’t disappoint in this department at all, thanks to its new 6.3-litre V12 motor under the hood which puts out a mind-numbing 660 PS of power – a figure only beaten amongst its siblings by the racing homologation special 599 GTO. In tandem with its transaxle dual-clutch gearbox and a body weight that tips the scales at less than 1800kg, the FF can make the run from naught to 100 km/h in a mere 3.7 seconds, on to a top speed of about 335km/h. And of course the latest cutting-edge carbon-ceramic Brembo brakes mean that the FF can shed off all speed in the blink of an eye if one needs to. And for all those eco-mentalists out there, this high-performance grand tourer also features Ferrari’s patented HELE start-stop system to keep the emission low and the fuel mileage high.
Ferrari’s latest creation certainly is a most interesting car. As the Maranello-based company’s flagship model, it represents what future Ferraris would be like – super fast cars that reward the driver with ultimate automotive pleasure for every little input, while at the same time soothing him or her with the ultimate luxurious experience and doing as little damage to the environment as possible to boot. We certainly can’t wait for the official unveiling of this striking supercar at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.
