Ferrari Releases New Pictures of FF

Ferrari introduced the 612-replacing FF concept last month. At the time, it released a few rather boring, unflattering studio shots of the car: one head-on front-end shot, one head-on rear shot, and one directly from the side. They definitely weren't the most intriguing shots, especially not if you prefer to see cars getting down and dirty on the track or street.

Well, this week Ferrari took the opportunity to right that wrong. It released a series of action shots that highlight the FF's four-wheel-drive capabilities. A few are of a rough prototype version of the car and a few are of the polished, Ferrari-red model.

The Ferrari FF will become Ferrari's first four-wheel-drive vehicle. The four-wheel-drive system is rear-wheel-focused, but delivers power to the front wheels when it's needed. According to Ferrari, this will give the FF superior performance no matter what the terrain and weather conditions are. The 4RM four-wheel-drive system weighs 50 percent less than conventional 4WDs, according to Ferrari's calculations.

Power comes courtesy of the FF's 6.3-liter V12 engine and is siphoned through a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The engine puts out 651 horses and delivers you to 62 mph in 3.7 seconds. Top speed is listed at 208 mph.

Other equipment includes independent suspension with magnetically adjustable dampers and Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes.

The FF concept will make its official world debut at the Geneva Motor Show in just a few weeks. There's no word on when the car will go into production or how much it will cost, but hopefully Ferrari will fill in a few more details in Switzerland.
