How many cars could possibly need 180 mph rated winter tires? Very few is the answer. The Ferrari FF is one of those few, and it’s a gamechanger for Ferrari. FF stands for Ferrari Four—four seats and four-wheel drive. That means it’s a grand tourer that’s both somewhat practical for everyday tasks (and less everyday ones, such as conveying four of your closest friends up a snowy mountain pass at triple-digit speeds). Motivation—and lots of it—is provided by a Ferrari V12 mounted in the traditional up front position, making a cool 660 horsepower. From there, things get highly unconventional. First, there’s the Pininfarina shooting brake bodystyle, a first for a production Ferrari. Then there’s another first, the all-wheel drive system known as “4RM” that’s 50 percent lighter than a traditional arrangement, utilizing a small gearbox up front to transmit power directly from the crankshaft to the front wheels in low-traction situations. Translation: the system ensures that the FF has stupendous grip on nearly any surface, which combined with the near perfect weight distribution and ample power will allow the FF to shock and delight up to four lucky occupants. The North American debut of the FF took place at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, and that track’s famous Corkscrew seems like a great place to experience the incredible performance of the new range-topping Ferrari.
