2012 Ferrari FF
The 612's Successor
More than a few eyebrows were raised as the covers came off the all-new FF model on the Ferrari stand at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. Replacing the much more conventional looking 612 Scaglietti, the new FF was a major styling departure from where Ferrari had been before. But as the show’s patrons looked further, it became apparent that the FF still represented Ferrari’s frontline GT model, making it a worthy successor to the 612.
Even More Space
That was because, while some elements of what constituted a Grand Tourer had changed, others had not. The ability to seat four people in comfort, for instance, had not changed one bit with the FF. In fact, the extended roofline made it even more accommodating for passengers and their luggage. The idea that a Ferrari GT should be a front-engined car with a large capacity, normally-aspirated V12 engine had not altered, either. And the FF’s 6.3-litre V12 was proof of that.
Gripped to Everything
But what had changed was equally important. For the first time, a road-going Ferrari had been fitted with all-wheel-drive. Not only did this give the car superb all-weather abilities, it also endowed it with an uncanny level of grip on everything from a ski-resort car-park to a desert race-track.
A Fashion Statement
This 2012-built example features Ferrari’s Bianco Avus exterior along with the rarely seen Testa di Moro interior package. The rich, dark tan of the interior might seem like an odd choice, but when viewed in context it makes a genuine fashion statement as well as setting the car apart from the pack.
Features include: Testa Di Moro interior, parking camera, front and rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate-control, 20-inch forged alloy wheels, white tachometer, powered seats, cruise-control, paddle shifters, selectable drive modes, navigation, tyre-pressure monitoring, keyless start, alloy pedals,
