Today we’re fortunate enough to be behind the wheel of another one of Maranello’s finest, the FF. The first all-wheel-drive vehicle in the company’s history, the FF replaces the 612 Scaglietti in Ferrari’s lineup. The shooting brake design of the FF is said to recall the shape of the Ferrari 250 GT SWB Drogo race car and also draws some inspiration from stable mates like the 458 Italia and the 599 GTB Fiorano. The FF is powered by a 6.3-liter naturally aspirated V12 making 651 horsepower and 504 pound-feet of torque, which is connected to a seven speed dual clutch transmission similar to the unit found on the F12 Berlinetta. Ferrari’s own patented 4RM all-wheel-drive system then routes the power to each of the four wheels as needed, leaving the car most often in a traditional rear drive layout.
Among the numerous highlights of the FF, carbon ceramic brakes, magnetorheological dampers, and an electrically controlled rear differential all come as standard. This particular example comes loaded with options, including a panoramic roof, sport exhaust system, diamond-stitched seats, special 20” forged wheels and a premium audio system, bringing the grand total to 1,108. So what’s it like to experience 0,000 worth of Italian supercar? Time to find out
