Ferrari to reveal a new FF at Villa d’Este

Ferrari FF 2

Ferrari are set to debut a new version of the FF at the Villa d’Este concourse event in February. The highly exclusive event is to take place around the beautiful Lake Como in Italy. Last year we saw BMW reveal the hideous M4 CSL so hopefully it’ll be better than that.

The Ferrari FF never really took the motoring world by storm despite it being a car I rather liked. the FF featured Ferrari’s first 4 wheel drive system along with it being Ferrari’s first hatchback vehicle. Ferrari aimed at taking on the likes of Range Rover for the first time as a luxury skiing vehicle designed to travel up the alps at high speed in absolute luxery, spoilers it didn’t. the original FF was always to twitchy thanks in part to its 4 wheel drive system which switched off once in fifth gear. The twitchiness also wasn’t helped by the 6.3 litre V12 and 651BHP, far too much for a vehicle designed to take on snowy mountain roads.

Recent spy shots of winter testing show slight changes to the exterior with a larger grill helping more air get to the V12 slight changes were made to the lights but, Id expect the 4 wheel drive system to stay the same. Rumours also suggest a power increase from the V12 possibly pumping it up to 670 or even 680BHP. Despite the update I’d still expect the uber rich to stick with their Range Rovers and Porsche Cayennes. The Ferrari FF is to much of a combination car, being a mixture of Super car and usable every day car is very hard to pull off and unless massive changes are made before the unveil the FF will fall flat on its beautifully sculpted face.
