The FF throws down an unbeatable gauntlet to every sports GT, raising the bar far beyond any challenger. One glance at the FF's Pininfarina-designed profile foreshadows the ambition and technical beauty underneath. Get behind the wheel on any road surface, in any weather, and you discover why it’s so revolutionary. Specifically designed to tackle tough driving challenges, the most discerning drivers in the world will marvel in the FF's elegant packaging and breakthrough performance.
The four cocooning seats and Ferrari's innovative new four-wheel drive system inspire the FF’s name. These main attributes separate this Ferrari from the rest of the Prancing Horse stable. Power is still supplied mainly to the rear wheels. The front wheels receive power only when required, managed by an intelligent control system. As the most powerful four-seater in the world, the FF is exclusive for only a select few who desire the pinnacle of performance in this class. It lacks nothing. Power is exceptional, delivering an envelope-pushing driving experience on any surface, be it asphalt, snow, ice or gravel. The FF’s rear electronic differential – or E-Diff – is the first in the world ever employed with V12 power and four-wheel-drive.
Ferrari's patented four-wheel-drive system meshes perfectly with the latest F1-Trac traction control, itself an outgrowth of Ferrari’s racing experience. Among other FF firsts is a seven-speed dual-clutch F1 gearbox, the first of its kind mated to a V12. The interior of the FF holds four people in sumptuous luxury. Deftly contoured seats support and comfort occupants in equal measure, while cabin space and luggage room is unmatched in its class. Space and comfort comes without performance compromise. The FF delivers all the dynamics expected of a Ferrari with an epic V12 engine, powerful brakes and race-bred suspension, all masterfully engineered into the unique chassis. The FF’s power-to-weight ratio - 6.37 pounds per hp - is astonishing, made possible by the revolutionary four-wheel-drive system that's merely half the weight of mainstream four-wheel-drive solutions.
The FF’s exquisite style and Shooting Brake profile is refracted through a master's lens, blending modernity and cutting edge aerodynamics with Pininfarina's time-proven eye for beauty. Because of this very new profile to Ferrari, designers offer a distinctive exterior color palette. Ferrari tailors the FF to owners who seek to mirror their own unique style in aluminum, steel, glass, leather and carbon-fiber. Either driven day-to-day or reserved for special occasions, the FF makes for elegant touring or redline-tickling performance. In that respect, the FF echoes every Ferrari's raison d'être. Be the dream automobile that revels in being driven.
Styled by Pininfarina, the FF blends futuristic elegance and aerodynamic perfection.
DISCOVER THE FF
Exuding a unique allure, the FF cabin provides elegant and sophisticated detailing, creating an impression of subtle exclusivity. With the best cabin space and occupant comfort in the segment, four generous seats ensure each occupant will enjoy a rich standard of comfort.
Trunk size is unprecedented at 15.8 cubic feet. Four people can therefore pack four standard-sized suitcases and two golf bags or two children’s strollers with them. Clearly, the FF is a sublime getaway car for four people and all their weekend needs. In any climate.
Fold down one or both of the rear seats and luggage space increases enough for two occupants to enjoy a month-long road trip. In two-seater configuration, the FF can swallow any hobby items or sports equipment, including two full sets of diving gear or sailing kits. The central section of the rear seat can also be folded to fit bulky items like a large golf bag or two pairs of skis.
As for accommodations, Ferrari re-wrote its own book. The front seats comfortably welcome occupants over 6 feet, 4 inches, while the rears are designed to make people comfortable who are up to 6 feet, 1 inch tall.
The FF cabin also includes multiple storage compartments for smaller items brought on long trips.
The eye picks up the unmistakable signature Ferrari marks and cues. The FF respects tradition while breaking new ground. It pushes the limits of a "Shooting Brake" form factor, drawing admiring stares.
The FF’s sculpture and shape balance muscularity with soft overhangs and forms. It brings visual echoes of Ferrari's past to the present with new life. Yet, the true accomplishment is doing so with an automobile that delivers heart-pounding, racing-bred performance in all types of weather, on every road surface.
The FF's aggressive shape slips through the air but not past keen eyes. The body's minimal sculpture lowers drag and channels airflow with the intelligence that only F1 experience allows. Air that enters the engine compartment flows out via sharply-etched side vents, giving the FF's sides an alluring aggressiveness.
The FF’s outstanding aerodynamics evolved from fine tuning in computer simulations and full-scale wind tunnel testing to ensure leading-edge drag and downforce figures. The FF’s aerodynamic efficiency – the ratio of its drag coefficient Cd (0.329) to its downforce coefficient Cl (0.200) – is 0.608, the best figure ever achieved by this type of automobile.
Engineering in the tail of the FF is equally novel, with extensive aerodynamic research, computer simulations and wind tunnel testing, even testing the air vents that relieve pressure in the wheel housings. These vents reduce wake turbulence using the base bleed effect, eliminating a portion of the automobile’s drag. Twin air outlets in the bumpers divide air flow to minimize both the wake’s size and depression.
A three-channeled rear diffuser extracts air from the underbody and uses two innovations. First, an airfoil boosts the diffuser’s extraction capacity while increasing downforce, further planting the rear of the FF to the road. Second, inverted or concave side channels ensure the depression area is consistent along the undertray’s width.
Lightweight aluminum space frame construction is hidden by the FF's daring design. Careful selection of job-specific alloys lead to maximum performance and newfound efficiency through light weight. The simultaneously-developed chassis and bodywork results in a 10 percent weight reduction compared to the previous generation four-seater chassis, while increasing torsional rigidity by 6 percent.
The FF's 4RM four-wheel-drive system is innovative, completely new and patented by Ferrari.Read more
The FF's 4RM differs from conventional systems and enables Ferrari to keep the single driveshaft powering the rear transaxle, perfect for the mid-front engine location. The Power Transfer Unit, or PTU, drives the front wheels when necessary. Located over the front axle, the PTU transfers torque to the wheels directly from the engine. The advantages of this layout include:
• a 50% reduction in weight in comparison to a conventional four-wheel-drive system, boosting performance by increasing the power-to-weight ratio
• optimal 47/53 front/rear weight distribution despite the mid-front engine location
• a lower center of gravity
The PTU carefully controls torque delivered to the front wheels, dividing it up as needed between each side. Powered by the engine’s crankshaft, the PTU drives each front wheel through independent carbon-fiber oil-bath multi-plate clutch packs. The front and rear axles are kept mechanically separate, each having its own independent traction system. The result? All of the thrill in driving a powerful rear-wheel-drive performance vehicle with the added talent of all-weather traction.
The PTU itself is exceptionally compact, measuring just 6.7 inches in length. This helps cut half the weight of 4RM versus a conventional system.
The FF’s multi-disc clutches enable independent front and rear wheel speeds, a function for which conventional systems require center differentials. The FF’s front clutches also apportion torque vectoring to each front wheel.
The power, the roar, the Ferrari engine lineage is alive.
Four-seat comfort and drivability cloaks extreme performance in the FF. An entirely new mid-front-mounted 6,262cc direct injection V12 anchors that performance with these exceptional stats: 651 hp at 8000 rpm; a specific output of 103 hp per liter; and a power-to-weight ratio of 6.3 pounds per hp. Torque comes in with amazing strength: 503 lbs-ft at 6000 rpm, with over 360 lbs-ft available clear across the entire range from 1000 rpm all the way to 8000 rpm.Read more
The FF's performance requires real technical accomplishments. A high-pressure GDI (Gasoline Direct Injection) system operates at 2900 psi to ensure precise and strong fuel atomization, netting a perfect mixture of air and fuel up to 8000 rpm. The FF engine also has the highest compression ratio of any vehicle in its segment, a lofty 12.3:1. To help high-rpm operation, a reed valve scavenging system handles crankcase windage caused by the pistons’ own pumping. Low-friction materials coat the camshaft, pistons and piston rings.
To further the noble cause of fuel efficiency, the FF uses a stop-start system which turns the engine off at a full stop, and restarting it just 230 milliseconds. Refined transmission programming, strategic instruction of the engine fan and intelligent monitoring of the air conditioning compressor all help to improve fuel economy by 25% compared to the previous generation of Ferrari V12s.
The V12 engine’s music - from both intake and exhaust systems - has been finessed for the FF’s performance-focused character while maintaining comfort for four passengers. Inside, the engine’s powerful sound is precisely muted, conveying Ferrari’s tone signature without being intrusive. Outside, the FF sings the glorious song only a Ferrari V12 can. An anthem for enthusiasts everywhere.Close
The interior of the FF offers exceptional comfort and richness.Read more
The FF provides the best cabin space and occupant comfort in the segment, thanks, in part, to four generous, leather-trimmed seats.
Trunk capacity is unprecedented for this kind of car, at 15.9 cubic feet. It is also extremely versatile. Four people can therefore take four standard-size suitcases and two golf bags or two children’s strollers with them. With the front seats comfortably accommodating 6-foot, 4-inch individuals and the rears designed for people up to 6-foot, 1-inch tall, the interior makes the FF the most sporting lounge on the road.
Fold both rear seats and luggage capacity rises to over 28 cubic feet, enough for two people to enjoy a month on the road with almost any kind of sports equipment or hobby gear. The center section of the rear seat can also be folded down to accommodate long items like a large golf bag or two pairs of skis.
The FF makes long journeys luxuriant. Numerous small compartments offer storage out of sight. Dual-zone climate control emerges from a number of independently adjustable air vents at every passengers' control. The front-seat passenger can also view a special optional "emotion" display that indicates the FF's speed, rpm and gear selection as well as travel time, mileage, average speed, top speed reached and Manettino setting. If ordered, this display is housed in an enclosed section of the dashboard with a charging USB multimedia connection.
The rear-seat infotainment system features remote control, cordless headphones for two, 6-slot DVD player, digital terrestrial TV tuner and audio/video input for multimedia devices. Owners may also upgrade the already excellent standard 640 watt 9-channel system to a spectacular 1,280-watt, 16-channel system with QuantumLogic® Surround Sound.
With years of research, racetrack success and on-going dialog with its F1 drivers on critical ergonomics, Ferrari's driver interface is second-to-none. Every control lever and all the main functional data are instantly clear at all times and all conditions. Since Ferrari places them on the steering wheel, the main controls are a natural extension of the driver’s hands. This removes the need to lift hands off the rim when shifting or making any adjustments.
In addition to Ferrari's exclusive Manettino with five vehicle dynamics settings, the steering wheel also houses the Start button, indicators, the two F1 gear-shifting paddles, a suspension decoupling button which separates damper settings from the other manettino configurations for softer damping on uneven surfaces and the windshield wiper controls.
A traditional tachometer with gear indicator dominates the new instrument cluster with two high-resolution displays positioned on either side. The left-side display lists the main vehicle status data as well as VDA (Vehicle Dynamic Assistance) output which shows the controls active in any given Manettino setting. Trip computer and parking sensor information are also featured. The right-side display shows the driver's choice of digital or analog speedometer, the main infotainment data and front and rear parking camera displays.
The center console houses the F1 panel and its dynamic controls: Launch Control which sends maximum torque to the ground for spin-free, high-performance starts in all conditions, including snow and ice; reverse gear; and an Auto button to select fully automatic transmission operation.
The FF’s new infotainment system features a 6.5-inch, high-contrast display with touch screen, Bluetooth connectivity with audio streaming, navigation with 3D views, voice command, two USB connections and a telephone keypad.
The main functions can be manually selected or triggered through voice commands. The display graphics are completely redesigned for even better clarity.
THE MULTI-TALENTED FF MAKES LOW-GRIP DRIVING A NEW DRIVING PASSION.Read more
Owners will enjoy new terrain and driving conditions with Ferrari’s patented 4RM (four-wheel drive) system. Where conventional four-wheel-drive systems also require extra differentials which add significant weight, the FF's 4RM system weighs half as much as most. The F1 dual-clutch gearbox combines the driving pleasure of a sequential gearbox with the comfort of an automatic. Gear-shifting times have been minimized. Even more impressive, the acceleration gap typical of manual and electrohydraulic gearboxes during shifts is completely eliminated.
The FF's E-Diff is integrated into the gearbox casing itself, a solution that has helped reduce overall weight. Ferrari’s first-ever four-wheel-drive system actually shares a CPU with the E-Diff and F1-Trac. Combined with instantaneous grip estimation on any kind of surface, the FF gives perfect driveability and handling even on extremely slippery, icy or snow-covered surfaces.
The FF’s Manettino has five settings:
Fluid that changes viscosity with electric charge revolutionizes shock absorber (or damper) performance. Software adjusts the magnetic field every millisecond inside each damper. Thanks to this new SCM3 system, damping response is five times faster than conventional shock absorbers.
The 4RM four-wheel-drive system only sends drive to the front wheels when there is more torque than the rear wheels alone can deliver with a given level of grip. If the driver requires less torque than is transferable by rear wheels at a given grip level, traction is controlled by the F1-Trac on the rear wheels only.
The E-Diff distributes torque left or right, as is commonplace accelerating out of corners. If the driver needs more torque than both rear wheels can deliver, the extra torque is transferred to the front wheels.
Predictive software within the four-wheel-drive system estimates grip, a technology first used in motor racing, then developed for road cars. It also underpins the F1-Trac system and allows the FF to estimate the maximum torque each wheel can transmit to the road without inducing wheelspin. Drive only goes to the front wheels when the rear wheels with F1-Trac and E-Diff controls alone aren’t enough to transfer the power to the road.
The E-Diff distributes torque to both of the rear wheels while the race-derived F1-Trac traction control system manages the torque to the rear axle. When accelerating out of bends in low grip conditions, the F1-Trac, E-Diff and PTU work together to distribute maximum torque to each individual wheel for optimum performance. However, torque is transmitted to the front wheels only in a balanced, progressive way to guarantee maximum stability.
Within the Performance Launch feature active in all Manettino positions, the 4RM Control also has a specific high-performance start logic for low-grip surfaces. The FF therefore delivers maximum possible acceleration in all grip levels without wheelspin, but does not act as a brake, or rely on the brakes as it does with competitor systems. This translates into improved stability, handling and control on the limit of grip as well as superb high-performance standstill starts, even on snow-covered inclines.
More rapid brake pedal response results from Ferrari's Pre-Fill brake logic. This activates calipers' pistons even in the short fraction of a second between lifting off the throttle and applying the brake. Shorter stopping distances, better pedal feel all result.
The FF imbues its driver with very high overall chassis responsiveness from all corners of the car. The steering ratio is quicker by 20 percent, body roll is minimal and structural rigidity increases by 20 percent over the predecessor model. Longitudinal stiffness alone is up by a factor of three, resulting in even more precise calibration of the suspension, lower suspension noise and even more efficient absorption of bumps. The FF sports Ferrari's third generation Brembo carbon-ceramic material (CCM) brakes.
Thanks to a higher, more stable coefficient of friction and greater stress resistance, the FF's brake rotors are lighter weight, yet with the improved performance of shorter stopping distances. The brake pads now also last an astonishing seven to eight times longer than those of the previous generation, which means far less frequent service and lower operating costs.
Completely new mid-front-mounted 6,262 cc GDI V12 that delivers unprecedented performance and responsiveness at all engine speeds: 660 CV at 8,000 rpm.
