Ferrari Develops Four-Wheel Drive

Rumors of Ferrari working on an all-wheel-drive system started last year and today Italiaspeed is reporting that the Italian automaker has completed development of a four-wheel drive system for future cars. Ferrari’s four-wheel drive system is a bit different from its competitors because the car remains rear wheel drive with a conventional gearbox, but when grip is needed, the front wheels can be activated. A secondary clutch is activated by a sensor that measures slip and acts as a form of traction control when driving the front wheels.

Ferrari’s four-wheel drive system will work on mid-engine as well as front-engine Ferraris.
