Love it or hate it, the 2012 Ferrari FF marks a bold step for Ferrari into relatively new territory. Not only is the shooting brake body a first for a volume model from the Italian automaker but the car also sports its first all-wheel drive system.

If just a year or two ago you said Ferrari would launch an all-wheel drive hatch, most people would call you crazy, but here we are, with dozens of shots of the new FF in front of us, each of them making us want the car that much more.

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past six months and all this is new to you, the FF is Ferrari’s latest supercar and serves as the replacement for the 612 Scaglietti. It is also one of the biggest models ever unveiled by Ferrari, stretching 193.2 inches in length and 76.9 inches across.

Inside, there’s space for four, plus its relatively unique hatchback design nets a generous 15.9 cubic feet of space, expandable to 28.2 cubic feet. The downside: the FF weighs a massive 3,946 pounds.

It’s certainly no slouch, however, as its 6.2-liter V-12 engine generates as much as 651 horsepower and 504 pound-feet of torque. This is channeled to all four wheels via a sophisticated all-wheel drive system and seven-speed dual clutch transmission.

The FF made its official world debut back at March’s 2011 Geneva Motor Show. Click here for the full details in our preview post.
