Some months ago we reported on a group of journalist taking the Ferrari FF for a spin on top of Plan De Corones in the Dolomites at 2,350 meters by air lift. Fifth Gear’s Tiff Needell was at the event to drive the FF and this is his review.
The Ferrari FF has a 6.3 liter V12 engine making 651hp at 8,000rpm with a maximum torque of 504lb-ft at 6,000rpm with 368lb-ft available from 1,000rpm. The engine is mated to Ferrari’s patented 4RM four-wheel-drive system and a seven-speed transaxle dual-clutch F1 gearbox, allowing the Ferrari FF to go from 0 to 100km/h in 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 335km/h.
Ferrari’s FF is similar to the Panamera missing 2 doors. The GT that is replaces was a bit ugly, and I’m not sure the FF is an improvement.
I like the fact that there is no horsepower limit in this segment of vehicles and I also like the fact that the manufacturers don’t feel an overwhelming need to be green with these cars. If you’re buying one of these vehicles you can afford gas for it at almost any price.
