2012 Ferrari ff

is the latest version of the 2012 Ferrari. 2012 Ferrari FF has a complete set of every new technology, a tribute to the inside raw power. 2012 Ferrari FF, and the family are two words that do not run continuously, at least not on a scale of at least four-seater Ferrari in 2012.
2012 Ferrari FF will take you and your three aspects that are up to 208 mph on the open road. The final 2012 Ferrari FF is not so much the progression of the revolution.
First production, 2012 Ferrari FF proceeds from the original all-wheel drive technology in 2012 FF, which adds much less weight than expected AWD systems. 2012 Ferrari FF also increases the Hele-stop-start system on the above concepts, which improve fuel efficiency and reduces emissions. This 2012 Ferrari FF systems have focused on the 6.3-liter V12 engine with 651 horsepower, thus forcing the four posts 62 mph 3.7 seconds. 2012 Ferrari FF Fresh provides an excellent very athletic, powerful nature of the incredibly versatile, very comfortable. 2012 Ferrari FF sophisticated that it is the driver and passengers a unique driving experience.

The FF is calling a new 6262 cc, 65-degree V12 with direct fuel injection, fully variable valve timing, graphite-coated pistons and 12.3:1 compression. The engine generates a peak of 651 hp on 93 octane, right at the 8,000 rpm redline, with 504 lb-ft of torque at 6,000 rpm. That’s about 103 horsepower for each of the six-plus liter normally aspirated engine. Yet Ferrari claims that, thanks to direct injection, reducing friction and low-drag accessories, the new V12 specific fuel reduces nearly 25 percent compared with the old. These are good times.

The transmission is a dual-clutch auto update F1DCT Ferrari’s seven-speed manual. The FF will be offered in North America with a whole cut option, low-e, brushless blower motors, an economics-oriented transmission control mode adds a more efficient air conditioning compressor and a start-stop function. Ferrari says it can improve fuel mileage by 2 percent to 3 percent.

Then there 4RM all-wheel-drive system from Ferrari, who happens to be the coolest we’ve seen in a long time. The key element is a patented (Ferrari) front differential. It has two speeds and a wet clutch for each half-axis, and power taps the front of the crankshaft. Ferrari claims the 4RM weighs 50 percent less than the typical all-wheel-drive system. The front differential case less than seven inches deep. It fits on the front of the engine and remains almost entirely behind the front axle, while retaining classic sports front/53 47 behind Ferrari’s weight distribution.

The standard torque split is 100 percent behind, and it takes a fairly significant loss of traction in the rear tires to get any engine torque flows through the front door. The FF’s integrated stability / drivetrain electronics to add two new settings for Ferrari: ice and snow. The differences can be torque-vectoring power distribution front and rear, and the system is designed so that it takes the couple – or slow – one or more wheels, more torque will shift to other wheels. Because the only two front wheels driven speed ranges (compared to seven for the back), the 4RM not all above about 120 mph.

The FF’s aluminum spaceframe is welded to some locations, glued in others. It fits a new suspension configuration for Ferrari, with double wishbones front and a multilink design in back. Delphi developed SCM3 magnetic damping and third-generation carbon-ceramic Brembo brakes (more friction, less weight) are standard.

The FF will replace the 612 Scaglietti, which is currently still available. FF production for the United States begins in October with the first cars arriving at the end of the year, priced at $ 290.000 or more. Approximately 25 percent of the building is for North America, but if you do not put your name on a FF (and if you do, you probably already own a late model Ferrari), you will not get one anytime soon . Ferrari argues in the first year run of 800 has been discussed.
In terms of comfort, convenience and easy handling – not to mention performance objective – the FF is light years beyond what the most ardent Ferrari fan could have imagined 20 years ago. The big news of course is 4RM. Ferrari built a snow track on top of a mountain in Italy only to the AWD system to.

We are still our head around that concept. Elegant packaging aside, 4RM certainly works. Ferrari claims that a low-friction surface such as snow, with standard winter, the all-wheel drive 0-to-60-mph time cuts in half, compared with rear-drive only.

In Ice mode, 4RM is a straitjacket. No matter how aggressive you are with the gas, the FF will just continue where it is directed at what percentage of the inter-band friction allows it go. With the electronics in a looser state, say even comfort or sport, it behaves like a rear-drive coupe being, with enough to slip back to gas out of the tail and counter-steer. Then, when those rear wheels of the point of no return approach, and the tail will swing all the way around, and the front wheels will start digging for some traction. Or, if you understeer to induce a hard trail braking and warm introduction, the FF kind of slow itself down until the front tires grip better, and then the power of the front wheels and torque vector of the front end again in line.
That is the snow to follow. The FF has huge footprints (245/35ZR-20 front, 295/35 rear). On dry, high friction roads, with the electronics in comfort mode, it’s really hard to get any torque flows to the front wheels, as the graphics on the dashboard FF’s are an accurate indication.

The V12 sings strongest at high speeds, as expected, but there is a wad of torque across the range – more than enough room for passengers a nice twist belly with a short blast on the accelerator. Yet the biggest problem with this stallion is finding space to really stretch the legs. Given the FF’s wide gear ratios and 8000-rpm redline, a light traveled limited-access highway is about the only place where the wind through a few gears. If you floor it on straight stretches of a beautiful, winding two lanes, you’ll probably hard on the brakes for the next corner before you get to the sweet tone and feel of the shift towards redline F1DCT experience.

And it is sweet. Who remembers the first Ferrari F1 car’s single-clutch manual will be blown away by how nice this is, as a manual or an automatic sports transmission. In automatic mode, it is fast to respond to the driver gas / brake habits, and at a relaxed pace is almost always smooth. The F1DCT become as a profession that is as good as Porsche’s PDK general, and maybe a little faster for manual shifting.

The FF’s control is sufficiently fast, but safe and not too light. There is so much grip in the front tire is a bit difficult to evaluate feedback on the public highway, because it is difficult to sense loading the tires to the fine line between traction and slip. This is a big, wide car, and unless you really long or rather the feeling of sitting on a box, you will not see much metal through the windshield of the FF’s. But if you get familiar with where the edges, it is easy to keep the car where you want. The FF will dance as nimble as a car of its substantial 4150-pound curb weight. The ride is comfortable for touring, and the rate of damping, the body roll or the transfer of weight adequately fits the pace you keep.

We would not call the cockpit finish rich-Lake Down-to-business – but it looks and feels appropriate price of FF’s. The navigation / video package seems to come from the supplier that old Chrysler UConnect system built, and it’s weak graphic. Otherwise, well placed and sturdy switches. All essential functions, including signal spoke-mounted rotary knobs are located on the steering wheel manettino.

The FF is more than a 2 +2. Adults to almost six meters high can comfortably on the back buckets, with decent legroom, and it’s fairly easy to climb in. There are also good space – nearly 16 cubic feet – in the beautifully finished cargo area. Obviously, Ferrari offers a four-piece fitted luggage set or matching custom golf bags.

It is a Ferrari because of Cryin ‘loud, and a pioneering one at that. And it is bad fast. If you want a Ferrari a few friends on a weekend blast to actually perform the Hamptons, or a ski trip to the Sierra, there is no other.

We wonder, though, how many FF owners actually use their cars for such purposes. Somehow we can not see them doing power slides in the snow. And if the point is a blast for two sunny days in nature, or a track day or just the best valet spot at your favorite restaurant, the 458 is probably better suited Italia. It is definitely more alert and probably more fun from the perspective of the driver. The Italia is also about half the price, and it’s a safe bet that you get your hot little hands on a lot earlier.
We’re talking about the 2012 Ferrari FF Concept. With this new Ferrari concept, you and three of your friends (or maybe even family members) can enjoy the thrilling sensations a Ferrari can give.It’s always great to drive your Ferrari at mind-blowing speeds, but it’s even better when you can share the experience with your best friends.

The two door beauty is powered by a 6.3-liter V12 engine that’s capable of delivering 651 horsepower and push the ride from 0 to  62 mph in only 3.7 seconds.  Ferrari FF Concept features the HELE stop-start system that lowers fuel consumption and carbon emissions, and an advanced all wheel drive system that’s considerably lighter than the usual ones. We’ll probably see this baby at the Geneva Auto Show this year

The 81st Geneva International Motor Show played host to the unveiling of two major new Prancing Horse innovations: the revolutionary Ferrari FF, a four-wheel drive four-seater with a mid-front V12 that is the most powerful and versatile car Ferrari has ever built, and the 458 Italia sporting the HELE (High Emotions Low Emissions) System which cuts CO2 to just 275 g/km.

The Ferrari FF makes its eagerly-waited debut at Geneva after the huge build-up of expectation and interest created by the client premiere at Maranello broadcast online by www.ferrari.com.

The revolutionary Ferrari FF offers a completely new take on the sporting Grand Tourer theme. It is not only the first Ferrari with four-wheel drive, but, more significantly, a model that hails a major break with the past, effortlessly melding extreme sports car performance with the versatility and usability of a genuine GT and boasting an extremely innovative design.

Every single area of the Ferrari FF brims with innovation, not least its engine, the first GDI V12 to be coupled with the seven-speed F1 dual-clutch gearbox. The V12 unleashes a massive 660 CV at 8,000 rpm, and maximum torque of 683 Nm at 6,000 rpm with 500 Nm already available at just 1,000 rpm. This ensures the performance figures of an extreme sports car, with the 0-100 km/h sprint covered in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 335 km/h. Efficiency has been significantly boosted too, with fuel consumption now standing at just 15.4 litres per 100 km, and CO2 emissions at 360 g/km, a 25 per cent reduction compared to the previous V12s, thanks in part to the HELE (High Emotions- Low Emissions) System which incorporates Stop&Start technology.

Uniquely, the Ferrari FF also guarantees this exceptional performance on terrain with very low grip coefficients, thanks to Ferrari's own patented 4RM four-wheel drive system. Torque is still delivered by the rear wheels, but the PTU (Power Transfer Unit) ensures that as much as is required is also transferred to the front wheels when necessary on low grip surfaces. The Ferrari FF intelligently distributes torque to each of the four wheels individually, thanks to the fact that all of the dynamic vehicle controls (E-Diff, F1-Trac and PTU) have been integrated into a single CPU.

Exceptional sporty driving is guaranteed by the Ferrari FF's transaxle architecture (mid-front engine with gearbox over the rear axle) and the positioning of 53% of weight to the rear of the car. Meticulous attention has been taken in lightening the engine (new castings), bodyshell (new aluminium alloys and production processes) and a host of other components. The interior has also been optimised through the use of high-tech materials such as magnesium for the seats. Third generation Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes are now lighter and longer-lasting, with virtually negligible wear during normal use on the road. All of these innovations have combined to produce an absolutely exceptional weight-power ratio of 2.7 kg/CV, a new benchmark for this kind of car.

Styled by Pininfarina, the Ferrari FF's lines effortlessly reflect its signature uncompromising balance of sportiness and versatility. It can comfortably accommodate four in its bodyhugging seats and spacious cabin. Its 450 litre boot can also be extended to 800 litres as the rear seats fold down independently. This means that the Ferrari FF offers more luggage space not only than any other car in its category, but also many four-door saloons, too.

Everything aboard the Ferrari FF is tailored specifically to the needs and tastes of its driver with a choice of six exclusive colours and the finest Frau aniline leathers specially treated to enhance their natural softness. The Ferrari FF's exceptional specification enhances in-car enjoyment for all four occupants. Features include a new rear-seat infotainment system with two screens for watching TV and DVD and a 1,280 Watt, 16-channel stereo system with Dolby Surround Sound.

The three FFs on the stand in Geneva are joined by a 458 Italia, the 599 GTB Fiorano with the sporting HGTE package, and a Ferrari California in an elegant Blu Tour De France finish. The Ferrari California is enjoying incredible sales success and is also the model subject to the widest range of personalisation requests in Ferrari's line-up. The V8- engined convertible is, in fact, very popular in the special two-tone and three-layer paint option finishes, with additional original interior combinations of materials, colours and trim solutions. The extraordinary success of the Ferrari California testifies to its enduring and sophisticated appeal.

Ferrari has unveiled its first-ever production four-wheel-drive model, a front-engined V12 four-seater GT that not only replaces the 612 two-plus-two coupe but also aims to attract a new kind of "all-roads, all-seasons" Ferrari customer.

The new 2012 Ferrari FF is named for its four seats and four-wheel-drive. It was designed by Pininfarina under the direction of Ferrari's own chief designer, Flavio Manzoni.

The first Ferrari of modern times to accommodate four full-sized adults and their luggage, it will be unveiled at next month's 2011 Geneva Auto Show, and go on sale soon afterwards.

Ferrari hopes it will appeal in particular to buyers who usually use all-wheel-drive saloons or SUVs for winter driving and especially ski trips at this time of the year.

The revolutionary Ferrari has an all-new, longer wheelbase chassis that rides on a new all-independent suspension that incorporates the latest-generation magnetically-adjustable dampers and standard Brembo carbon ceramic disc brakes.

The four-wheel-drive system, claimed to be around 50 percent lighter than comparable applications, preserves the desirable rear weight bias of recent V12 Ferraris. Called 4RM (for 'Ruote Motori') the system is unique to Ferrari, using the car's electronic systems seamlessly to direct torque to the front wheels when slippery conditions demand it, but mostly leaving the car in its desirable (and understeer-free) rear-wheel-drive state.

Though the FF is more versatile than traditional Ferraris, Maranello counters any suggestions that it is "soft" by giving it a newly developed 6.2-litre V12 with just under 10 per cent more swept volume and 22 percent more power than the 612. It's mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

The FF also gets the efficiency-building measures introduced in the California, including stop-start and smart charging to improve economy by about 10 per cent. The FF engine produces 650bhp at 8000rpm and 504lb ft of torque (up 16 per cent) at 5000rpm. Despite these higher outputs, CO2 output is dramatically slashed from 470 to 360g/km (23 per cent) while combined fuel consumption improves from a distinctly average 13.8mpg to 18.3mpg.

The FF's 0-62mph acceleration time of 3.7sec also undercuts the 612's by 0.4 sec, while its 208mph top speed beats the 612 by about 10mph.

Ferrari claims an impressive kerb weight of 3,957 pounds for the FF, undercutting the 612 by 110 lbs. despite the new all-wheel drive system.

The FF moniker stands for "Ferrari Four" in reference to the fact that all four of the wheels are driven and there are four seats. Ferrari claims that its all-wheel-drive system, which it refers to as 4RM, is 50 percent lighter than comparable systems, but provides no details on how this was achieved. (RM stands for ruote motrici, so 4RM just means “four-wheel-drive” in Italian.) The Italians claim a dry weight for the car of 3946 pounds, which makes it less than 100 pounds heavier than the 612 Scaglietti, for which Ferrari quotes a dry weight of 3880 pounds. (The ready-to-run curb weight of the last 612 we tested was 4123 pounds.) Fifty-seven percent of the FF's weight is perched over the rear axle. Incidentally, British manufacturer Jensen built a four-seat, all-wheel-drive supercar called the FF in the late Sixties. The acronym then stood for Ferguson Formula, and Harry Ferguson Research supplied its all-wheel-drive system.

Ferrari history is peppered with shooting-brake conversions. At the Turin auto show in 1968, coachbuilder Vignale unveiled one based on a 330 GT. A few years later, Panther created a shooting brake using the 365 GTB/4 Daytona. Swiss coachbuilder Felber got in on the fun with its 365 GTC/4 “Break,” introduced in Geneva in 1977, and followed that a few years later with a conversion of the Ferrari 400 called Croisette. And, in the mid-’90s, Pininfarina built a few four-door station wagons based on the Ferrari 456 for the Sultan of Brunei. From the looks of it, though, the FF is getting the history of the official Ferrari shooting brake off to a specta
