FERRARI FF

Bringing an end to the rumours, reports and spy photos, Ferrari has unveiled the FF, replacing the 612 Scaglietti and adding a unique 'shooting brake' model to the line-up.

Short for Ferrari Four, the FF adds another new quality to the company's back of tricks: all-wheel-drive.

Dubbed 4RM, little has been revealed about the technology, although Ferrari has confirmed that it is a part-time all-wheel-drive system, weighing half as much as a conventional system and maintaining a 47:53 rear weight bias.

According to Ferrari, the FF "delivers record levels of performance on all terrains and in all conditions via continuous and intelligent predictive torque distribution to all four wheels."

The FF is driven by a brand-new 6.3 litre direct-injected V12 engine, including a stop/start system for improved fuel consumption. Mounted up front, the new engine produces 485kW at 8000rpm and 683Nm of torque at 6000rpm.

It's not light however, weighing in at 1790kg - 65kg more than the 612 it replaces - but with the extra 85kW, it's unlikely to suffer. It falls behind Lamborghini's new V12 however, measuring 6.5 litres and producing 525kW and 690Nm of torque.

With its F1-style dual-clutch transmission, Ferrari says the FF will knock over the 0-100km/h sprint in 3.7 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 335km/h. Fuel economy is listed at 15.4 l/100km and CO2 emissions at 360g/km.

As for that wagon-like boot, the FF can carry a good 450 litres of luggage with the two rear seats upright, expanding to 800 litres with the rear seats folded flat.

Ferrari has revealed little else at this stage, nor has it offered any interior photos, but more details are expected to be revealed soon.
