Ferrari Four FF Specifications

The FF is a four seater GT, with a long sloping bonnet where a 6.3-litre V12 is nestled. I must admit that when I first saw pictures of the FF, I hated it. I didn’t like every thing about it visually; too long, too sloped, awkward face, clumsy rear. But then when I finally saw it in the flesh, my opinion changed a little… it was smaller in the flesh, lines were cleaner, and the rear isn’t actually that bad. In fact, the more I look at it, the more it looks more like a station wagon version of the 458 Italia! That said, I am sure that many will be divided by it’s looks. The FF is a strict four-seater, with a very generous boot space of 450 litres. To put things in perspective, a Honda Civic FD has 458 litres of space. The cherry on this cake is knowing that the rear seats are actually collapsible, and the boot space is extended to 800 litres. Definitely more than above average to um, do your grocery runs.

Most of the interior is wrapped in a sumptuous leather, with smattering of CF here and there. Extended all the way, the driving position is perfect, but passengers at the rear would suffer, and leg-room isn’t what you would call generous.

The steering is standard Ferrari fare, as are the dials (that are beautiful, btw). More important to note, is the optional display on the front passenger area; information on the FF’s cruising speed is on show here, and some might tick this box, just to scare some of their passengers. Also worth mentioning are the redesigned air-cond vents. These are actually much easier to use now, and doesn’t feel as cheap as some of the earlier Ferrari models.

The FF’s 6.3 litre V12 is naturally aspirated, and produces a staggering 651hp, with 683Nm of torque (500Nm @ 1000rpm). All this, in a body that weighs only 1800kg. 0-100km/h sprint is dispatched in a scant 3.7secs and Ferrari claims that the FF is the fastest four-seat automobile in the world. And I can believe that.

The engine is couple to a 7-speed dual-clutch tranny that is similar to the 458 Italia. The 4RM (four wheel drive) system is also touted to be 50% lighter than a conventional 4WD system, and Ferrari claims that this system is much more usable than the 612 it replaces, especially so in hazardous driving conditions like heavy rain, or snow.
