2013 Ferrari FF
It’s been called a shooting brake, a hatchback, a two-door estate, but Ferrari calls it the FF. The strikingly styled Ferrari with the extended roofline that forms a proper luggage compartment might not appear as a conventional product of the prancing horse, but in every other way it’s pure Ferrari. In fact, on its release in 2011, Ferrari even claimed the FF was the world’s fastest four-seater production car. And with a top speed of 335 km/h, that’s not really a claim to be argued with. Nor is the 0 to 100 km/h time of just 3.7 seconds.
But the FF represented another first, too. It was the first production Ferrari road car to make use of all-wheel-drive. Even then, Ferrari was not going to follow the well-trodden path to all-wheel-drive; the FF uses a clever, lightweight system that gives the vehicle four-wheel-drive grip when it needs it, and traditional rear-wheel-drive handling for the rest of the time. The front axle is driven only when the driver (via the steering-wheel mounted Manettino) selects Comfort or Snow mode. At all other times, only the rear axle is driven, maintaining the purity of handling and response that defines any Ferrari.
Power comes form a naturally-aspirated V12 measuring 6.3 litres and pumping out a huge 485 kW of power and 683 Nm of torque. A seven-speed double-clutch transmission was the only transmission offered in the FF.
All Purpose Car
This car is finished in a stealthy shade of black with plush tan leather inside. The cabin also features folding rear seats that enable the FF to swallow a load that would have most supercar owners calling for a taxi, but even with four passengers on board, there’s ample space for long-distance journeys. Which is exactly what the FF was designed for.
Features include: Keyless entry and start, powered front seats, selectable drive modes, navigation, reverse camera, parking sensors, LED lighting, carbon-ceramic brakes, cruise-control, dual-zone climate-control, Bluetooth.
