2012 Ferrari FF Blue Review

The Ferrari FF is a new interpretation of the Gran Turismo sports car concept. It is only the first four-wheeled Ferrari, but, more significantly, greets a major break with the past by combining extreme performance with the ease and versatility of a true GT and a very innovative design.

The Ferrari FF offers innovations everywhere, starting with the fact that it is equipped with the first Ferrari V12 engine, which is the direct-injection V12, with the first seven-speed dual-clutch. The new engine hits 660 hp at 8000 rpm and maximum torque of 683 Nm at 6000 rpm, 500 Nm available at 1,000 rpm. The Ferrari FF has a spectacular performance of a sports car very extreme: 0-100 kmh acceleration in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 335 kilometers per hour. It also provides excellent results in terms of efficiency with a fuel cut only 15.4 liters per 100 km and CO2 emissions to 360 g / km, a reduction of 25% over the previous V12. These achievements are due in part to HELE (high-low emission emotions), which also includes Stop & Start system.

Ferrari FF also ensures that the extraordinary performance in a field with very low adhesion coefficients with the Ferrari of his own patented drive 4WD four wheel drive. The couple is still supplied by the rear wheels, but PTU (Power Transfer Unit) to ensure that as much as necessary is also transferred to the front wheels when required on surfaces with low grip. Ferrari FF intelligently distributes torque to all four wheels individually, due to the fact that all the Vehicle Dynamic Control (E-Diff and F1-Trac and PTU) have been integrated into a single processor.
