Video: Ferrari FF Concept Takes The Track

Love it or hate it, the Ferrari FF concept is coming and it's replacing the 612 Scaglietti. Ferrari did an internet unveil of the concept FF last Friday and plans to bring it to the Geneva Motor Show. This week, we got our first look at the uncovered FF in action thanks to a testing video from the Circuito di Balocco in Italy. Though the video watches more like a teaser or commercial, it's the first live action we've seen of unmasked Ferrari shooting brake, and it looks pretty smooth taking the curves under the stars.

In case you missed it last week, the Ferrari FF is a concept version of the future production car that will replace the 612. The FF represents "Four-Wheel Drive and Four Seats," and we're sure Ferrari will have a more befitting name for the production model.

As to the four-wheel drive, Ferrari's first 4WD system--called 4RM--maintains a rear-wheel orientation for most driving, but uses intelligent torque distribution to kick some twist up to the front wheels when necessary. It also weighs about half of conventional 4WD systems.

In terms of torque, the FF has up to 504 lb-ft to work with thanks to the 6.3-liter V12 engine. That engine puts out 651 hp. Those numbers help define what Ferrari calls the "most powerful, versatile four seater ever." A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission handles shifting.

The Ferrari FF hits 62 mph in 3.7 seconds and tops out around 208 mph.

Ferrari will present the FF to ogling eyeballs at the Geneva Motor Show in March. U.S. sales will begin in the fall, with pricing yet to come.
