Ferrari FF (2012)

It's hard to fit four people into a low-slung coupe, so Ferrari's new top-end model ditches the classic coupe shape for something more practical.

Derek loves nothing more than punching a remote location into a GPS, queuing up some music and heading out on a long drive, so it's a good thing he's in charge of CNET Australia's Car Tech channel.


In brief

Ferrari promised a new top-of-the-range car that would break with tradition and, we guess, this is what they meant — the new Ferrari FF.

With styling reminiscent of the BMW Z3 Coupe that was dubbed the breadvan, the FF has seating for four people. According to the company, FF stands for Ferrari Four (four seats and four-wheel drive).

As yet, nothing has been revealed about the FF's cabin tech package. Boot space is rated a 450 litres and can grow to 800 litres when the rear seats are folded down. The interior will be swathed in aniline leather and can be customised to the owner's liking.

The FF will be powered by a 485kW/683Nm 6.3-litre V12 that sends power to all four wheels via a dual-clutch transmission. With a dry weight of 1790kg, the FF can go from zero to 100km/h in 3.7 seconds, reach a top speed of 335km/h and, in EU testing, drink 15.4L/100km when driven with superhuman levels of restraint.

In the video below you can see and hear the FF in action, as well catch a few quick glimpses of the interior.

Outlook

The car will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March, with the first cars arriving down under in early 2012. Pricing and specifications will, of course, be announced closer to that date, although some media reports suggest that the car will be priced close to AU$900,000.

The Good:looks great and its PRACTICAL

The Bad:Will never be able to afford it

Finally Ferrari came to its sences in creating a practical design to replace the 612. If a 2+2 is to be created why not have it with a hatch so people can use it and drive it more often. This style like the BMW z3 and volvos c30 or any small 2 door sporty hatchs are a great mix of useability and function. I think it looks good too. I like good design, i will be ever be able to buy a ff so my veiwpoint is different but good on Ferrari to push for more inovative design in its range.

And here I was thinking that nobody could create an uglier supercar than the Panamera. It looks like Ferrari saw the Porsche and thought 'challenge accepted'.

That is just......awful. They just built the gorgeous 458 Italia and then throw this out like they did it in a week. If you're throwing 900K down for a car, you don't want to be vomiting every time you see it, you can spend much less money if you want a car to do that, muuuuuch less.
