OFFICIAL: Here’s The New Ferrari Four (FF)! First Four-Wheel Drive Ferrari In History
Today, at 13:00 CET Ferrari have revealed their 4 seats model. They called it Ferrari Four and it looks like the perfect combination between their latest models. So Porsche Panamera be aware.
They new Ferrari Four is the supercar for the ones that want to offer their family the greatest ride. With a front inspired by the already famous Ferrari 458 Italia, Ferrari Four is powered by a naturally-aspired 6.3-liter V12 engine that develops not less than 660 HP at 8,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 683 Nm 6,000 rpm.
The brand new Ferrari model is able of neck-breaking sprints as it hits 100 kph from a standing start in just 3.7 seconds, while the top speed is of 335 kph. With dimensions placing it in the GT sports cars class (4,9 meters long, 1,95 meters wide and 1,38 meters high), the FF looks like the perfect rival for the German’s Porsche Panamera.
The New Ferrari FF is the first four-wheel drive car of the Prancing Horse, featuring the 4RM system that mated with an F1 double-clutch gearbox that sends 53% of the V12′s horsepower to the rear axle and transforms this four seats supercar in a road torpedo. FF has a weight of only 1,790 kg and the Ferrari patented 4RM weighs in 50% less than a conventional four-wheel drive system. Ferrari Four’s weight distribution is close to perfection: 43% front and 53% rear.
As about the looks of the FF, it looks like Pininfarina did a great job, making the GT supercar one of the most comfortable Ferrari cars ever made, with a luggage space of 400 L (extendable to 800 L), being able to accommodate four passengers.
FF is the abbreviation for Ferrari Four, but it also stands for “Four-wheel” drive and “Four seats.” The customers can choose from up to six special shades for the body of FF.
Ferrari Four will have it’s world premiere at Geneva Motor Show 2011.
