Ferrari chose their own website WWW.FERRARI.COM to unveil their revolutionary supercar called the ‘FF’ for Ferrari Four. That’s four seats and Ferrari’s first ever four-wheel drive car.

It might be a revolutionary concept for Ferrari, but Aston Martin were first to market with their four-door, four seat GT sports car, the Rapide in the first quarter of 2010, but the ‘FF’ has only two-doors and is of course a traditional Grand Tourer.

Designed by the peerless Italian design studio, Pininfarina, the ‘FF’ appears to have design cues from a number of different Ferrari roads cars, including the 612 Scaglietti, and 599 GTB Fiorano.

Under the bonnet is a 6.262 cc direct injection V12 developing a ballistic 492 kW (660 CV) at 8000 rpm and 683 Nm at 6,000 rpm. Mated to Ferrari’s dual-clutch super fast shifting F1 gearbox, the FF will nail the 0-100km/h sprint in just 3.7 seconds and has a top speed of 335km/h.

The four-wheel drive system, known as the 4RM, is Ferrari’s own patented design, and weighs 50 percent less than a conventional four-wheel drive unit. The system also provides for near perfect weight balance too, with 53 percent over the rear axle.

Other goodies include the latest and greatest magnetorheolgical damping system (SCM3) together with the most advanced ceramic braking system from Italian brake specialist, Brembo.

There’s plenty of space in the FF too, that’s room for four people and their luggage. Cabin and boot capacity ranges from 450 litres to 800 litres.

There are six unique model specific colours and the interior is specially selected aniline leather.

The Ferrari FF will officially debut at this year’s Geneva Motor Show
