It is said that the Ferrari FF 's 4 wheel drive weighs 50% less than a common 4 wheel drive system, and they managed to balance their torque distribution on all the 4 wheels, with the light weight and the 4 wheel drive combined giving this supercar a perfect weight distribution and as a result the traction control and the acceleration of this car becomes amazing.

TheSupercars Ferrari FF is equipped with a new 6.3 liter direct injection V12 engine that produces a 651bhp @ 8000rpm, while getting a torque of 504lb ft @ 6000rpm, and combined with a transaxle dual clutch transmission, this car can accelerate from a standpoint to 62mph in just 3.7 seconds and able to reach a top speed of 209mph, it is obvious that the 612 Scag would be crunching the dust with those numbers.

The dimension of the Ferrari FF would be 4907mm long, 1953mm wide and 1374mm tall. It is safe to say that this new GT would cost no less than £220k
