TURIN – Ferrari S.p.A. today released pictures of its first four-wheel-drive model, called FF (Ferrari Four).
The supercar will replace Ferrari's 612 Scaglietti flagship and will debut at the Geneva auto show in March.
The FF will be a crucial model for Ferrari because the company faces increasing competition from high-performance four-seat coupes such as the Bentley Continental GT/GTC and Aston Martin Rapide, as well as sporty coupes from Porsche, Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz.
Ferrari calls the FF a revolutionary model that offers “exceptional performance and versatility.” Like the 612 Scaglietti, it has four seats, but it will be powered by a new 660-hp, 6.3-liter V-12 direct-injection engine.
Despite having more horsepower than the 540-hp 5.75-liter Scaglietti, the FF will be more fuel efficient with CO2 emissions of 360 grams per kilometer, compared with the Scaglietti's CO2 emissions of 470g/km.
The FF will go on sale in Europe around May and in the United States in the autumn. Its price has not been announced but is expected to be above 250,000 euros in Europe
The FF has a 335kph top speed and accelerates from 0 to 100kph in just 3.7 seconds.
