Ferrari FF (2012)

CARBARN | Ferrari FF (2012) | The Pininfarina-styled four-seater folds futuristic shapes and detailing into classic front-engine proportions. It is long (193.2 inches), wide (76.9 inches), and Relatively low (54.3 inches), and to our eyes, it is absolutely stunning. The FF, says Ferrari, Comfortably seats four and offers Ample space for luggage.

That Ferrari claims its all-wheel-drive system, the which it refers to as 4RM, is 50 percent lighter than comparable systems, but provides no details on how this was achieved. (RM stands for ruote motrici, so 4RM just means "four-wheel-drive" in Italian.) The Italians claim a dry weight for the car of 3946 pounds, the which makes it less than 100 pounds heavier than the 612 Scaglietti, for the which Ferrari quotes a dry weight of 3880 pounds.

Incidentally, the British manufacturer Jensen built a four-seat, all-wheel-drive supercar Called the FF in the late Sixties. The acronym then Stood for Ferguson Formula, and Harry Ferguson Research supplied its all-wheel-drive system. The shape and drivetrain layout may be unusual, but the engine is pure Ferrari: a 6.3-liter, naturally aspirated 65-degree V-12 produces 651 hp That at a screaming 8000 rpm and 504 lb-ft of torque at 6000.

Ferrari claims 0 to 62 mph That Will take just 3.7 seconds-We suspect That is a highly conservative guess-and top speed Will be a Lofty 208 mph. Magnetorheological shocks Will help the FF handle, and Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes Will bring it to heel. Ferrari's history is peppered with shooting-brake conversions.
