2011 Geneva Motor Show: Ferrari FF Makes Online Debut

Follow Marty


Ferrari says its new FF--its big premiere for the upcoming 2011 Geneva Motor Show--is its first four-wheel-drive sportscar ever.

The new FF made its online debut today, in advance of the Geneva show, with the explanation that "FF" stands for four-wheel drive and four seats.

Powered by a V-12 engine, the FF also promises "incredible versatility, superb comfort and sophisticated elegance," according to the Italian supercar maker.

The V-12 displaces 6.3 liters and develops 651 horsepower at 8000 rpm. A dual-clutch F1 gearbox pushes that power through all four wheels. Ferrari explains its four-wheel-drive system distributes weight nearly perfectly (47:53) and reports it's integrated into the stability control systems.

Ferrari promises a 0-60 mph time of less than 3.7 seconds, and a top speed of 208 mph.

The FF also sports a magneto-rheological set of dampers, and carbon-ceramic brakes.

The cargo hold has a surprising 15.9 cubic feet of space, which can be expanded to 28.2 cubic feet--which seems to indicate a pass-through to the cargo area. The downside: the FF weighs a massive 3946 pounds, and is nearly as long and as wide as a Hyundai Sonata.

  1. Now this is bad ass. This FF looks so much more menacing and aggressive than the fruity 612 Scaglietti it's replacing.

    Bad stuff?

  2. Absolute ferocious looking Ferrari!!, previous Scaglietti was one of their low points and never invoked any passion for the brand. Got a gut feeling a few other top-end automakers' might just come-out with their own shooting brake/break version.
