Ferrari reveals new FF photos, video before Geneva debut

Arguably the most unique model Ferrari has ever made, the 2011 Ferrari FF, a hatchback four-wheel drive replacement for the 612 Scaglietti, is scheduled to debut at the Geneva Auto Show (March 3-13).

The new Ferrari FF (Four seats and four-wheel driver) possesses a 6.2-leter V12 that makes 660 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and has 504 lb-ft of torque at 6,000 rpm.

Slighter longer and lighter than the 612 Scaglietti, Ferrari says the FF will accelerate from 0-62 mph in 3.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 208 mph.Ferrari reveals new FF photos, video before Geneva debut 1

The four-wheel-drive system is called 4RM. Ferrari has released few details on the patented system, but the four-wheel drive hardware weighs 50 percent less than a conventional set‑up.

According to Ferrari, it “delivers record levels of performance on all terrains and all conditions via continuous and intelligent predictive torque distribution to all four wheels.”

All of which means, FF owners will be able to use their cars on “low grip or snow-covered surfaces”, as well as more conventional driving.Ferrari reveals new FF photos, video before Geneva debut 2
