First Drive: 2012 Ferrari FF

Ferrari Smacks Us With An All-Season Rocket By Matt Davis The last time Ferrari blew absolutely everyone away with wall-to-wall surprises and equally sizzling performance all wrapped into one car was in 2002 with its Enzo. We're not saying that all things between then and today have been shabby, mind you. And we're also not saying that the 2012 Ferrari FF does it in marquis-and-fireworks Enzo-style, but the unexpected innovations aboard this gorgeous trailblazing all-weather shooting brake will keep conversation heated for an uncommonly long time. This is Ferrari thinking way... Read More

    Video: Two weeks and over 3,000 kilometres in Ferrari's FF with Evo

    EVO's Harry Metcalfe had some questions about the day-to-day livability of the Ferrari FF. When he brought those questions up to Ferrari, they suggested he take one for a couple of weeks and try it out for, as he calls them, "mundane duties." The image above is Metcalfe pointing to the 660-horsepower, all-wheel drive FF parked in one of his fields ...

    Perhaps overshadowed at the Paris Motor Show by the carbon fibre chassis bits of the still unnamed Enzo successor, was news from Ferrari about a roof. The oddball Italian supercar maker has announced that its FF will now be available with a full-length panoramic roof – the first of its kind for the manufacturer, since it normally doesn't have such ...

    Monotony can be draining, but there are certain forms of it we could get used to. Like being around Ferrari models all day, every day. Sure, they're all two-door, rear-drive sports cars, but they're exciting ones at that. But then comes along the FF to break the mold of monotony with its unique all-wheel drive and four-seat hatchback "shooting brake" ...

    Ferrari FF destroyed by fire in China

    Whenever we see a supercar that is destroyed at the hands of an inept driver, we cringe but must admit there is part of us that chuckles. It happens, but it shouldn't. Likewise, cars have been known to spontaneously combust, but they shouldn't. The latest example of barbecued exotica comes to us from China, where a lovely white Ferrari FF looks like it ...

    Video: Jenson Interceptor FF and Ferrari FF take to the slopes of St. Moritz
    1329148860

    The Jensen Interceptor FF and the Ferrari FF share two letters, but the commonality extends far beyond a nameplate. Both cars are exotic GTs, both have rather unusual roof profiles and 2+2 seating, both are pioneers in all-wheel drive... and both would be fantastic for a trip through the Swiss alps. To put that last bit to the test, Classic Driver took ...

    On the F1 circuit, a fellow named Jenson may be one factor Ferrari fears most. But long before Button ever climbed into an grand prix car there was another Jensen, and while it may not pose a threat, per se, to the Ferraris of today, the two are bound by more than common names. We're talking about the Jensen Interceptor FF and what might very well be its ...

    There are drawbacks to every kind of alternative to burning fossil fuels in our cars. Electric cars don't have enough range.Hybrids are burdened with what essentially boils down to two parallel powertrains. Hydrogen is limited to where it is available. Bio-ethanol has its own drawbacks, but don't tell that to the performance enthusiast. That's because E85 ...

    Ferrari factory drivers are used to racing in all sorts of conditions: under the baking sun, in the pouring rain, at night and at sunset. Competing in the snow has historically been beyond their usual purview, but then again, Ferrari never made an all-wheel-drive vehicle before. That's where the FF comes in. The Ferrari Four, as you may recall, channels ...
