Ferrari FFFerrari's gonna drive the purists nuts with this one: Their first wagon and 4x4!
This is the FF, the Ferrari FF. It stands for four-passenger, four-wheel drive, and they don't even have a letter for what's about to approach you right there on the rear end. That, my friends, is a hatchback. This is what they call a shooting brake, a station wagon in Euro terms. Now, this vehicle is gonna slot in to replace the 612 Scaglietti which is their current high-end 2+2. Biggest Ferrari engine ever in a production car, 6.3-liter V12, 651 horsepower, 504 foot-pounds of torque. Typically drives the rear wheels primarily, that's why we have this enormous trans axle back here. At times when it wants to apply power to the front for better performance, better handling, you've got this sort of two-speed Haldex gearbox underneath the front of the dry sump on this guy. That allows this car to do a torque vectoring method. When it detects slip, this stuff kicks in and applies power to the front. If it doesn't, it remains a rear-wheel drive car in the sporting tradition. Ah. This is rather a nice place to do business, wouldn't you say? We've got an actual mechanical or analog tach. Notice on the right side, I've got a split screen of two cameras. Here is our Ferrari head unit. This can be a 1200-watt system with gobs of surround sound speakers. I don't need to convince you that it sounds good. Oh, do you see in the back? Fitted luggage is available as well including two full sets of golf clubs and some nice looking valises. Now, pricing and availability is not yet set on the FF, although I see some potential customers milling around. That looks like Nick Mason from Pink Floyd over there so they'll get the regulars in first. These may not be in ready supply for quite a while.
