Very distinctive with its shooting brake rear appearance, the Pininfarina-sculpted 2014 Ferrari FF is classified as a 2+2 passenger vehicle. A practical 15.9 cubic feet of cargo room presented on the 2014 Ferrari FF design works to differentiate the sports car from other high-end performance machines. The first and still the only Ferrari production car to operate with a four-wheel drive system, the 4RM system is uniquely created for balanced overall weight and to work with a mid-front mounted engine. Using the same high-compression 6.3-liter V-12 engine found on the F12Berlinetta, the 2014 Ferrari FF is propelled by 731 horsepower and 509 foot-pounds of torque. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is connected to the V-12 powerplant for fast, smooth power transitions. The implementation of Ferrari’s Magnetorherological suspension system and F1-Trac traction control in concert with the 2014 Ferrari FF’s 4RM system is set to deliver impressive handling, even in conditions not generally suited for sports cars, such as rain or snow. Remaining unchanged for 2014, the Ferrari FF is equipped with standard dual-zone climate control, as well as high-tech multimedia with a USB connection. A rainbow of exterior and interiors are available on the 2014 Ferrari FF.Read more Read less

Four-wheel drive; legendary Ferrari V12; practicality and interior space; stylish hatchback design; exclusivity
The Ferrari FF competes with the likes of the Porsche Panamera 4, the Bentley Continental GT and the Aston Martin V12 Vantage. It should appeal to a different type of buyer -- one who wants the exclusivity of Ferrari ownership but in a somewhat more practical, accessible package.
