There is more to love about the Ferrari FF than there is to loathe, with those who have a distaste for the machine focusing on the outward shooting brake appearance. While the exterior is a turn-off to some, it is difficult to find fault with the power components and performance capacity of the Ferrari FF. It can not only equal other V12 supercars, it can surpass most thanks to a few intricate features that others lack.
Call it a hot hatch, a shooting brake or a rather sophisticated family car–the Ferrari FF is a rival to many with superior power. Though she may look different from her siblings, the FF still drives very much like a Ferrari supercar, with the added advantage of the ability to take on various weather conditions like snow and ice! Try doing that in a Ferrari 458 Italia or a California. It is simply not common for a V12 supercar to have the capacity to drive in all-weather conditions, making this specimen a special one, indeed.
- Rather than stick a robust 6.0-liter V12 engine into a grand touring body and call it a day, Ferrari made certain that the FF could perform. It packs 650 horses, which are strategically delivered to all four wheels, with separate gearboxes for front and back. The special system is called 4RM and it is both complicated and effective.
- The top speed is around 210 miles per hour, give or take and it boasts 503 pound-feet of delicious torque. The power is harnessed via a seven-speed F1 transmission, similar to the Ferrari 458 Spider.
- It can travel from not to 60 miles per hour in a scant 3.6 seconds
- Because the weight is distributed low and close to the road, handling is improved in all conditions.
In the end, how the Ferrari FF compares to other V12 supercars is that it is able to match them in every aspect, and then come out ahead with added cabin space, luxury interior features and yes, that all-weather beast mode.
