The new 2012 Ferrari FF may not be to everyone’s liking but like most of its models, Ferrari has another sales winner on its hands. That is because the controversially styled supercar is already sold out and if you want one now you’re going to have to wait at least 18 months--that is, of course, if Ferrari is willing to sell you one.

The Ferrari FF only made its world debut this week at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show but the car has been on show at private events around the world for months now, and in that time has managed to rack up more than 1,000 orders. Unfortunately, Ferrari only has the capacity to build around 800 FFs per year.

Compare this to the model it replaces, the 612 Scaglietti, which only sold around 3,000 units over its seven year lifetime. Note, the stellar sales the model is garnering is also at a time when there a handful of new supercars are being launched, such as the Murcielago-replacing Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 and the Pagani Zonda successor, the U.S.-bound Huayra.   

No word yet on pricing for the new Ferrari FF but initial estimates put it at somewhere around the $360,000 mark. Of course, this doesn’t include taxes or any dealer markups associated with any car that has customers waiting almost one and half years for.
Some would consider such a sum a small price to pay for what is easily the most powerful and versatile car Ferrari has ever built.

Every single area of the FF brims with innovation, not least its engine, the first direct injection V-12 to be coupled with Ferrari’s seven-speed F1 dual clutch gearbox. The mighty V-12 unleashes a massive 651 horsepower at 8,000 rpm, and maximum torque of 504 pound-feet of torque at 6,000 rpm, with 369 pound-feet available from just 1,000 rpm.

This ensures the performance figures of a true supercar, with the 0-62 mph sprint covered in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 208 mph. For full details on the Ferrari FF, check out our previous post by clicking here.
