Ferrari FF 2011 Revealed to the World
A revolutionary four-seater, four-wheel drive V12: The Ferrari FF is revealed online at Ferrari.com in preparation for its’ launch at the upcoming 2011 Geneva Motor Show.
Noted as the company’s most powerful, versatile four-seater ever, as well as its very first ever four-wheel drive car, the FF – an acronym for Ferrari Four (four seats and four-wheel drive) – ushers in an entirely new GT sports car concept.
With the official press-release promising that the “new V12 melds to an unprecedented level an extremely sporty, high-performance character with incredible versatility, superb comfort and sophisticated elegance, guaranteeing both driver and passengers an absolutely unique driving experience.”
Designed by Pinifarina, the FF promises to introduce some exciting performance levels to the four-seater GT motoring class.
A new 6,262cc direct injection V12 engine develops 660CV at 8,000 rpm. In tandem with its transaxle dual-clutch F1 gearbox, stunning acceleration figures (0-100 km/h in 3.7 sec.) together with a top speed of 335km/h are claimed.
Performance aside, Maranello’s latest model also offers some pretty decent standards of passenger space and in-car equipment. It will comfortably accommodate four people and their luggage, thanks to the best cabin space and boot capacity – 450 litres extendable to 800 (which indicates a pass-through to boot ability?) – figures in its category, including four-door cars.
A vast array of personalisation options and accessories have also been developed for the FF. These include six model-specific exterior colours and sumptuous interior trim incorporating specially selected and treated aniline leather.
