Footnotes

  • Traditionally, Ferrari's four-seater models had offered little more than '2+2' accommodation, but in 2011 the Prancing Horse finally grasped that particular nettle and introduced its first car capable of carrying four adults in reasonable comfort: the FF. And as if that wasn't enough, the FF was also the first Ferrari production car to incorporate four-wheel drive. Introduced at the Geneva Salon in March 2011, the FF effectively replaced the 612 Scaglietti in Ferrari's range, though featuring a three-door shooting brake-style body rather than its predecessor's traditional two-door fastback. The FF was designed at Ferrari Styling Centre under the direction of Flavio Manzoni, who remarked that, apropos of its development: 'the challenge resides in coming up with a completely new shape while staying true to the values Ferrari stands for'. Few would deny that Manzoni and his colleagues had succeeded brilliantly.

    At the time of its introduction, the FF's 6.3-litre normally aspirated V12 was the largest engine ever to feature in a production Ferrari, its 651 horsepower being sufficient for a top speed of 208mph, making the FF the world's fastest four-seater at the time of its introduction, according to Maranello.

    'The FF doesn't feel as insanely ballistic as a 599 GTB in the lower gears,' observed Autocar, 'but in third and above it's mighty, and since 80 per cent of the engine's 504lb/ft of torque is available from 1,750rpm, it feels every bit as effortless as a serious GT should.

    'Consequently the 0-62mph sprint is dispatched in just 3.7sec, and the FF can power on to a top speed of 208mph. More impressively, against the clock the FF accelerates from 0-124mph in 11.0sec, exactly matching Ferrari's claims for the 599 GTB – despite that car's superior power-to-weight ratio.'

    Clearly, Ferrari had not traded away any measure of performance in developing its first practical four-seater. And that shooting brake body with its rear hatch did make the FF an impressive load carrier, affording a capacity of 800 litres with the rear seats folded down. Needless to say, the sumptuous leather-trimmed interior stood comparison with world's very best luxury saloons; premium air conditioning and a navigation/audio system were standard, with five suspension/chassis modes selectable via the steering wheel-mounted manettino knob.

    But the main talking point of the FF was its novel four-wheel drive transmission which, unlike conventional systems, did away with a central differential, an approach that afforded a significant reduction in weight. Known as '4RM' by the factory, this system employed a second gearbox with only two forward speeds plus reverse, located at the front of the engine. For most of the time the FF employs rear-wheel drive only, and when power does need to be fed to the front wheels it is transmitted to the forward gearbox via a pair of clutches. The forward gearbox's ratios do not correspond with those of the main seven-speed semi-automatic 'box, so the clutches are slipped, effectively acting as a front differential while at the same time providing torque vectoring for better handling.

    According to Car & Driver: '... the first roadgoing Ferrari to put power to all four wheels doesn't understeer like so many other four-wheel-drive sports cars. It's actually mostly neutral through corners. Ferrari engineers repeatedly explained to us that the front wheels are used mostly for traction in bad weather and that power is otherwise shunted to the rear wheels as much as possible.'

    Priced at £226,000 in the UK at time of launch, the FF remained in production until 2016.

    This left-hand drive example comes with a factory specification sheet listing numerous options including red brake callipers, coloured upper dashboard, 20" forged diamond wheel rims, leather headliner, coloured steering wheel, 'Scuderia Ferrari' shields, carbon fibre driver zone, and coloured safety belts. Presented in very good condition, having covered only some 9,000 miles from new, the car is offered with its original book pack, current MoT, a V5C document, and full Ferrari service history.
