If Ferrari had made the BMW Z3M, this is what it would have looked like.
The FF is Ferrari's first ever production 4WD model, a groundbreaking development underpinning a front-engined, V12-powered, four-seater GT to replace the 612 Scaglietti in the model line-up. And this is no concept; it'll be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show next month, and be on sale to the public shortly afterwards.
The four-wheel drive system is very light and keeps a strong rearward bias, but aims to appeal to SUV weekend/winter drivers with too much diginity to drive a Q7 and who can't be bothered to wait for the Maserati SUV. But don't go thinking it's soft - it weighs a handy 50kg less than the 612 (in spite of its bulkier drive system), while the 6.25-litre V12 offers up 650bhp and 504lb.ft. The perfect all-rounder for the holidaying oligarchical family man.
