A four-seater that utterly changes the whole GT sports car concept, hailing nothing short of a revolution in the automotive world. Even the most cursory glance at the FF’s sleek, Pininfarina-penned super model profile will tell you that. Drive it - anywhere, any time, in any weather or road conditions – and you’ll know why it’s so radical. It may be a car that has elegance, beauty and art in its soul, but there’s much, much more to the FF than sophisticated allure.
Regardless of weather or surface. The FF will more than match anything that’s asked of it because it is quite simply the most versatile car ever produced by the pens, computers, wrenches and milling machines used by the Prancing Horse technicians, engineers, designers and mechanics. The FF is also the first and only V12 in the world to sport a seven-speed dual-clutch F1 gearbox and it boasts a 20 per cent increase in power with a 25 per cent reduction in fuel consumption. The FF offers four occupants superb comfort with body-hugging seats and absolutely unprecedented cabin and luggage space for a car in its category. Unparalleled chassis engineering gives authentic sports car dynamics, with powerful brakes and an uncomprvomising suspension set-up. It also boasts the best weight-power ratio ever achieved, thanks in part to the fact that its patented four-wheel drive.
The FF’s styling, created by Pininfarina, is completely new in every sense of the word. The FF is modern, innovative, futuristic and stunningly elegant: the perfect marriage of aerodynamic constraints and the rules of design. On closer examination, however, the FF also exhibits, at its very heart, a recognisable Ferrari signature that manages to make it different from any other car whilst linking it to its genetic heritage. This is because the FF’s lines not only respect Prancing Horse tradition, they are also so innovative that they hail a complete break with the past.
Owners will be able to experience its power and sophistication on all kinds of terrain and conditions too, courtesy of Ferrari’s patented new lightweight 4RM (four-wheel drive). The F1 dual-clutch gearbox combines the unadulterated driving pleasure of a sequential gearbox with the comfort of an automatic one. Gear-shifting times have been cut to zero and the drop-off in acceleration typically experienced with manual and electrohydraulic gearboxes has been completely eliminated. The E-Diff is now integrated into the gearbox casing itself, a solution that has helped reduce the car’s overall weight. Ferrari’s first ever four-wheel drive system actually shares a CPU with the E-Diff and F1-Trac.
Even the FFs’ cabin exudes a unique allure. It is extremely comfortable and enticing with elegant, sophisticated trim and detailing, creating an impression of subtle exclusivity. The FF has the best cabin space and occupant comfort in the segment, thanks to four generous body-hugging seats that ensure each of the FF’s four occupants will enjoy the same standards of ride comfort and access to the on-board equipment. The central section of the rear seat can also be folded down to accommodate particularly bulky items such as a large golf bag or two pairs of skis. In other words, four people can go away in the FF for a long weekend break in complete comfort.
