Ferrari have just unveiled the FF, a stunning new four seater that is also the first four-wheel drive that Ferrari have ever made.
The FF has a 6.4 litre V12 engine, giving 650bhp, a 0-60 time of just 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 208mph. The four-wheel drive system has been developed in house by Ferrari and they’ve called it ‘4RM’. The launch release suggests that the FF will come with carbon-ceramic brakes as standard.
There aren’t any photos of the interior yet, but Ferrari promise it will have a roomier cabin that any of its rivals. Boot space is a huge 450 litres, bigger than many large saloon cars.
It’s clearly a stunning car, with lots of styling cues coming from the 458 Italia, but we can’t help but be reminded of the Z3 M Coupe.
More information, including the price, will come out in March when it’s launched at the Geneva Motor Show.
Reactions on Twitter from some of the top automotive tweeters:

@Andrew_Frankel: Four wheel drive Ferrari? Whatever next – a two wheel drive Land-Rover? Oh, hang on…
@evoNickTrott: Holy moly! A four-wheel drive Ferrari! Fabulous-styling, although I can’t help thinking there’s a little of the BMW Z3 M Coupe in it…
@thetimhutton: Love the new Ferrari BMW 4wd Z3 M
@Yoted: The twitterverse screams #z3m at #ferrari 🙂
@MotoriousFranco: So the new Ferrari #FF is on the bit of the ugly side. have you heard the noise it makes? It’s a beast
@aronline_uk: ..it’s the first Ferrari I like since the 288GTO (my opinion only)
@VincentDesmonts: BREAKING NEWS : some bloke just turned a BMW Z3 Coupe into a faux Ferrari !… oh, wait…
@TheCarDisco: Ferrari must be spending too much time on Twitter if they’re calling their new model ‘FF’. Will they call the 458 replacement ‘Bieber’?
