2012 Ferrari FF

Posted by Kevin Patterson On June - 30 - 2011 Cars

Ferrari introduces its first four-sweater, four-wheel drive car – 2012 Ferrari FF. Unveiled at he 81st Geneva International Motor Show, the revolutionary FF comes with a mid-front V12  making it the most powerful and versatile Ferrari car ever.

Ferrari FF is the perfect fusion between extreme sports car performance and genuine GT versatility, all gathered within design innovation.

The new Ferrari has the first GDI V12 coupled with the seven-speed F1 dual-clutch gearbox. The engine generates 660CV at 8,000 rpm, while the torque reaches 683 Nm at 6,000 rpm. The innovative system makes this car accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in only 3.7 seconds, while the top speed is of 335 km/h.

Fuel consumption is 15.4 liters per 100 km and CO2 emissions are 360g/km, less than the previous V12s. This efficiency is possible because of the HELE (High Emotions-Low Emissions) System with Stop&Start option.

Ferrari`s own patented 4RM four0wheel drive system offers very low grip coefficients leading to great performance on terrain. Even if torque is transmitted by the rear wheels, the PTU (Power Transfer Unit) is in charge with transferring it to the front wheels whenever required on low grip surfaces. The torque is intelligently distributed to the four wheels individually because there is a single CPU that integrates all of the dynamic vehicle controls.

The sporty experience is enhanced by its transaxle architecture and the distribution of 53% of weight to the rear. The interior is made of high-tech materials, while the third generation Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes are more resistant and lighter. Because of its innovations, Ferrari FF is the first car of its kind to have a weight-power ration of only 2.7 kg/CV,

Ferrari FF`s lines are styled by Pininfarina and it can easily accommodate four in its spacious interior. The rear seats can be folded down, so the 450-litre boot can be extended to 800-litre, offering more luggage space.

For everything aboard, the driver can choose between six exclusive colors and the finest frau aniline leathers. There is a new rear-seat infotainment system featuring, among others, two screens for watching TV and DVD.
