Yes, it is constructed on a spatial aluminum frame of manufacture Alcoa (the old partner of Ferrari), and it still drew in studio Pininfarina. By the way, FF is deciphered very simply – Ferrari Four. And it unambiguously says that places here four. So, it actually becomes the successor of model 612 Scaglietti (by the way, too rather disputable Ferrari). And so, on dimensions FF almost completely copies 612th - length of 4907 mm (+5 mm), width of 1953 mm (- 4 mm), height of 1379 mm (+35 mm). But thus FF is easier on 50 kgs (1790 kg)

Besides at FF the engine essentially is more powerful. Here again, fortunately, has done without revolutions – under a cowl petrol atmospheric V12 with direct injection. With 6,3 liters in Maranello have removed 660 forces from volume and 683 Nanometers. At 612th, we will remind, on 120 hp is less. So there is nothing surprising that Ferrari FF is dispersed to hundred for 3,7 seconds against 4,2 seconds 612 Scaglietti. Thus streamlining higher body has appeared not such bad – the maximum speed has grown from 320 to 335 km/h. And the average expense in the commixed cycle makes only 15,4 l/100 km (on 20 % less, than at Ferrari 612) thanking, including, and to system Stop&Start.

Certainly, in dispersal to a novelty helps not only more powerful engine, but also seven-step robot F1 with double clutch which for the best weight distribution (47/53 in favor of stern) is carried to a rear axle (the scheme transaxle). And, naturally, an all wheel drive about which also speaks word Four in the name. Transmission has received the name 4RM, and it's adjusted so that gives a considerable part of a twisting moment to rear wheels. Technical details aren't disclosed yet, but Italians assure that 4RM on 50 % is easier than similar systems.

Other stuffing doesn't cause surprise. Carbon-ceramic brakes Brembo (diameter of front disks – 398 mm), absorbers regulated on ruggedness with magnet liquid of last generation we are already saw. And here the luggage compartment in volume from 450 to 800 liters is something brand new in a segment super cars! Besides, for rear passengers the entertaining system with two screens, entering into 16-channel music capacity of 1280 W is provided. How many costs and when will appear on sale? While Ferrari doesn't open this information, FF still is registered as concept car only.
