The FF has its engine, a 6.3L V12 making 651 horsepower and 504 pound-feet of torque, mounted in a "mid-front" position, meaning at the front of the car, but with its center of mass behind the front wheels. This helps give it especially balanced dynamics near the limits of adhesion. Overall, the FF's weight distribution is an impressive 47/53 percent (front/rear), and its total curb weight is just 4,140 pounds.
The V12 delivers its power through a 7-speed F1 dual-clutch gearbox, allowing a 0-62 mph time of just 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 208 mph. Torque is delivered to the wheels through a complex 4-wheel-drive system called 4RM. In the FF, the system is designed mainly for all-weather traction, but will still deliver full torque to the rear wheels when possible. A Power Transfer Unit sends power to the front wheels when they are needed for grip. The system can send power to all four wheels individually through the FF's stability control electronics.
A lightweight structure underpins the FF, with a front control arm suspension and a multi-link setup in back. An adjustable damping system lets you switch to a firmer mode for performance or track driving, while carbon ceramic brakes save weight and provide more confident stopping. When in stop-and-go traffic, the FF's stop-start system automatically turns the engine off to save fuel, then powers back on when needed.
The hatchback design of the FF provides a level of interior space and comfort not usually afforded in a Ferrari. There's seating for four adults in this two-door car -- in soft aniline leather -- as well as enough cargo space for a weekend and the rear seatbacks are split and fold forward to accommodate more cargo.
Standard equipment on the FF includes a 6.5-inch touch-screen system with navigation and 3D map displays, plus Bluetooth hands-free calling integration as well as audio streaming. A dual-zone climate control system is also included. Some of the many options on the FF include a coordinated luggage kit, rear-seat DVD infotainment system with two separate screens, and a Quantumlogic Surround Sound system with 1,280 watts and 16 channels. And of course in the FF, as in other Ferraris, there's a long list of possible upgrades including wheels, special trims, upholsteries and inserts.
Legendary Ferrari V12
Practicality And Interior Space
Stylish Hatchback Design
The FF is essentially unchanged for 2015. The one big change is an updated stereo and navigation system that offers better connectivity options and generally feels much more modern.
The Ferrari FF competes with the likes of the Porsche Panamera 4, the Bentley Continental GT and the Aston Martin V12 Vantage. It should appeal to a different type of buyer -- one who wants the exclusivity of Ferrari ownership but in a somewhat more practical, accessible package.
