According to new reports, Ferrari is readying to launch a Ferrari FF Coupe. Such a car has been asked for from fans essentially since the regular FF was launched and now, those wishes could be coming true according to Car and Driver.
Reported to launch later this year or most likely early next year, it is claimed that the Ferrari FF Coupe will remain mechanically identical to the regular FF. As the name suggests, it will lose the rear seat and receive a slightly modified front fascia and new side air vets along with a more coupe styled roof and boot design. Because the Ferrari FF Coupe will be identical beneath the skin to the normal FF, it’ll be a real performer.
As it stands, the Ferrari FF is fitted with a 6.3-liter V12 engine delivering an impressive 651 hp at 8,000 rpm and 504 lb-ft of torque at 6,000 rpm. This engine is mounted to a 7-speed double-clutch semi-automatic transmission driving all four wheels. The all-wheel drive system, dubbed 4RM, is around 50 per cent lighter than a normal all-wheel drive system and it provides power intelligently to each wheel as necessary.
With all this being said, Ferrari will have to be extremely careful not to step on the shoes of the F12 Berlinetta because from a visual perspective at least, it is essentially an FF Coupe. However, with less power and inevitably a more plush interior and softer suspension, the Ferrari FF Coupe will reportedly rival the Aston Martin Vanquish, Bentley Continental GT and possibly even the Rolls-Royce Wraith.
