Porsche got its new Panamera four-seater, so Ferrari is not standing on the sideline and let it slip by. Ferrari is moving along with its new Ferrari four-seater, and what color to better show off the new four-seater than its iconic red color. The new Ferrari FF is fast, expensive and radical looking, which will be the successor to the outgoing 612 Scaglietti four-seater.
Much like Ferrari’s previous flagship four-seat GTs, like the 612 Scaglietti and the 456 GT, the Ferrari FF will carry the same configuration but with elongated roofline to accomodate the hatchback style. Unlike other four-seater sports cars, the Ferrari FF offers plenty of cabin space and cargo capacity due to its fold-down rear seats and hatchback style.
The Ferrari FF weighs in at about 4,000 pounds curb weight. It is a heavy beast, but with the help of the HELE stop-start system, it manages to keep emissions and fuel consumption to a minimum.
But here’s the fun part. The Ferrari FF is power by an all-new, direct-injection, 6.3-liter V12 engine producing 651 horsepower and 504 lb-ft of torque. That is enough power to tow any mid-size boat around and drag race your standard sport car at the same time. With the V12 engine, the Ferrari FF is able to accelerate from 0-62 mph in a mere 3.7 seconds and with a top speed of 209 mph; talk about a blazing trip to the supermarket or to a vacation destination.
Due to its oddly hatchback shape, some customers may shy away from it. But what’s the Ferrari lacks, it makes up in practicality and functionality with its large cargo space and hauling capacity.
