But you weren’t prepared, were you?
That’s alright. We thought we were, too, before the pictures came out. But some things you can’t be ready for. Your first love. Your first lust. That first time you fly, as a kid, with your headphones playing your favorite song as the wheels lift off the ground and your heart just leaps.
And this. The Ferrari FF. The first Ferrari shooting brake. The first part-time AWD Ferrari. A new flagship from the boys in Maranello, it’s already broken your heart, hasn’t it?
The heartbeat is a 6.3-liter V12 putting out 651 horsepower — more than the 612 Scaglietti it replaces, making this the most powerful production car ever out of Ferrari’s stable, unless you count limited-edition legends like the Enzo. All that thrust travels through a 7-speed dual-clutch semi-auto transmission (like the Porsche PDK, the shifts are reported to be so fast they’re almost undetectable). There are paddles if you want to take over, but it’ll be faster if you let the thing shift itself. Power goes to all four wheels thanks to Ferrari’s new part-time AWD system, which took years to develop. It’s broken down into balanced components to give the car a 47/53 weight distribution.
Despite the thing’s huge size, it tips the scales at under 4k. That gives it a stop-to-sixty of just 3.7 seconds.
Yeah. 3.7 seconds. Top speed is reportedly 208. And it’s a shooting brake…look at that hatch…
Nope. We’ve been starting at the photos for a while now, and we’re still not really ready. Look away, and look back…takes your breath away again, doesn’t it?
