The 2012 Ferrari FF hasn’t received enough ratings to earn a valid Total Car Score.
The FF breaks new ground for Ferrari in several ways. “FF” stands for “Ferrari Four,” calling out not only its seating capacity but also its four-wheel-drive system, a first for Ferrari. The maker has positioned the FF as a whole new kind of GT, one capable of being driven anywhere, anytime, in any road conditions. Its all-weather capability and hatchback body make it the most versatile Ferrari ever built, says the company.
The automotive media seems to agree, saying the FF truly can do it all. The 651-horsepower V12 will push you well back in your aniline leather-covered seat, the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission shifts in an eyeblink, and the AWD system is so well tuned that you hardly know it’s working.
That’s not to say the FF is without fault. Its styling receives the most criticism, though some writers also deemed the rear seats as overly snug and the Chrysler-sourced sound and navigation system as far too downscale for a Ferrari.
The $300,000 price tag is a bit of a stumbling block for some, too, though even if you can afford a 2012 Ferrari FF, expect a wait, as the first year’s production is already sold out.
The 2012 Ferrari FF is an all-new model from the Italian exotic car maker. This new take on a Grand Touring Ferrari seats four passengers and is fitted with Ferrari’s first four-wheel-drive powertrain.
Under the FF’s hood is a 6.3-liter direct-injection V12 engine that produces 651 horsepower and 504 pound-feet of torque. It is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox that sends power primarily to the rear wheels. When the need arises, a power transfer unit sends motive force to the front wheels, and the FF’s CPU electronically controls torque delivery to all four corners.
The FF is available in just one model with standard equipment that includes 20-inch wheels and tires, aniline leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth and a navigation system. It can be personalized with a choice of six FF-exclusive colors, while the options for the cabin include a rear-seat infotainment system and a 1,280-watt audio system.
The EPA has rated the 2012 Ferrari FF as achieving 11 mpg city, 17 mpg highway and 13 mpg combined, using premium fuel.
