The Ferrari FF is making its first world auto show debut today at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. Giving the Grand Tourer a completely new look, the Ferrari FF is the first time the Italian automaker is offering four-wheel-drive.
Power for the Ferrari FF comes from a 6.3L V12 engine making 651-hp at 8,000 rpm with a maximum torque of 504 lb-ft at 6,000 rpm with 368 lb-ft available from just 1,000 rpm. Mated to Ferrari’s patented 4RM four-wheel-drive system and a 7-speed transaxle dual-clutch F1 gearbox, the Ferrari FF goes from 0 to 62 mph in 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 208 mph.
Fuel-economy wise, the Ferrari FF manages a combined 15 mpg, a 25 per cent reduction compared to the previous V12s, thankst to the HELE (High Emotions- Low Emissions) System which incorporates Stop&Start technology.
Not a fan of all-wheel-drive in a Ferrari? Worry not, because the Ferrari 4RM four-wheel-drive system still delivers a lot of torque to the rear wheels – however, the PTU (Power Transfer Unit) ensures that as much as is required is also transferred to the front wheels when necessary on low grip surfaces. During that process, the FF distributes torque to each of the four wheels individually.
Prices and other details of the Ferrari FF will be announced closer to launch date.
