2015 Ferrari FF

Vehicle Summary

The Ferrari FF is an all-wheel-drive supercar with seating for four. The car is the only Ferrari with a hatch and up to 28 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded down. Powered by a high-revving 6.3-liter V-12 rated at 651 hp and 504 lb-ft of torque, the FF uses a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Due to the car’s two-ton curb weight and powerful engine, fuel economy is poor, with the car rated at 11/17 mpg city/highway with the available engine stop-start system and 11/16 mpg without it.

Overview

Thanks to its all-wheel-drive system, the Ferrari FF is capable on all-weather conditions. Its high-revving V-12 engine and quick-shifting dual-clutch transmission enables the car to accelerate with authority. Thanks to its standard suspension with magnetic shock absorbers, the car handles impeccably despite its weight and has no body roll. Additionally, they also help improve ride comfort, making it an excellent cruiser.

Space inside the car is generous for four passengers and cargo thanks to the FF’s hatchback body style. Like all Ferraris, the FF is highly customizable, enabling owners to personalize their cars. Options include 31 exterior colors, six wheel designs, a sport exhaust system, leather and/or Alcantara upholsteries, three types of sport seats, and carbon fiber interior accents.

What We Think

As a grand tourer, the Ferrari FF impresses with its spacious interior, all-weather traction, strong V-12 engine, and capable handling. In a 2012 First Drive review, we said that the car’s acceleration feels “ballistic” and handles well for its size thanks to its all-wheel-drive system and magnetic shock absorbers, which “virtually eliminate any trace of body roll.” However, the FF is not as dynamically capable as its stable-mate the 458 because its steering “feels too light” and isn’t as communicative.
