Mush, Mush! Spy Video Of Ferrarri FF Captured By Dog Sled

We know, from the official pictures that Ferrari released last week, that the Prancing Horse is intent upon showing off its all-new 4WD system. The FF concept is, after all, the first  Ferrari to get four-wheel drive. And the quickest way to convey a car's all-wheel torque vectoring capabilities is to show some video and pictures of the car in the snow.

But what happens when your beautiful, all-new supercar concept is snow-testing alongside a dog sled? Well, apparently the world gets a sweet spy video courtesy of the musher in question.

I gotta say: I've seen a lot of spy photos and videos in my time covering the auto industry, but this is the first I've seen that comes by way of dog sled. I guess with all the cold-weather testing that automakers do, it had to happen sooner or later. Who knew dog sledders even carried cameras?

The video is just under 30 seconds, but provides a nice 3/4 view of the FF—a better look than Ferrari gave in either its original studio shots or its subsequent snow shots—as well as a nice look at the rear of the car and a full profile sweep. Nice work!

The Ferrari FF is a concept at this point, but will go on to replace the 612 Scaglietti. The car is powered by a 651-hp 6.3-liter V12 engine that pushes it to 62 mph in 3.7 seconds on up to 208 mph. Not bad for a car with seating for four.

Ferrari's entry into four-wheel-driven car features a 4RM system that Ferrari claims is half the weight of traditional 4WD systems. It uses intelligent predictive torque vectoring to give each tire just the right amount of spin.

The FF will be among the large field of killer supercar debuts at the Geneva Motor Show in less than two weeks, a field that includes the Pagani Huayra, Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 and the Gumpert Tornante. It's gonna be a fun show.
