History of the 2011-2016 Ferrari FF
In a world where nearly all the high-end performance car manufacturers from Porsche to Lamborghini offer a luxury SUV in their model range, Ferrari has thus far stubbornly resisted. Possibly the closest they’ll ever come is the FF, which was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 2011 and built until it was replaced by the GTC4Lusso in 2016. The FF, which stands for “Ferrari Four,” may not have been an SUV, but it was a serious departure for Ferrari for several reasons. First and most obvious was its three-door hatchback body style, which was designed by Pininfarina but done so under direction from Ferrari’s own Flavio Manzoni. While it had traditional Ferrari styling cues like circular taillights and prominent quad exhaust tips, there was up to 28 cubic feet of storage space behind the driver. This implied practicality, something that had never really been associated with a Ferrari before.
In addition to the space, the FF was also the first production Ferrari with all-wheel drive. Unlike a conventional all-wheel drive system with a transfer case, however, the FF puts power down from either side of the engine, as the front wheels have their own 2-speed transmission attached at the front of the FF's V-12. The front wheels are only driven below fourth gear, meaning that the FF is still rear-drive only at high speeds.
Even though the FF was a usable, reasonably practical car that weighed almost two tons, Ferrari wasn’t going to be caught napping when it came to performance. Under the hood is the familiar F140 V-12 used across Ferrari’s range of larger cars. In the FF, the displacement was 6.3 liters and it produced 651hp and 504 lb-ft of torque. Shifting was done via paddles on the main 7-speed gearbox. The sprint from 0-60 took 3.7 seconds and top speed was nearly 210 mph, so the FF was no mere grocery getter.
Nevertheless, the Ferrari FF wasn’t completely embraced by enthusiasts. It wasn’t particularly pretty and its all-wheel drive arrangement put off some of the purists. At nearly 300 grand, it also wasn’t cheap. But the FF was a Ferrari that you didn’t have to put away in winter. It was a car that offered the performance and drivability of the company’s large GTs but could also be driven every day of the week and had room for four. It’s entirely possible that Ferrari could have hopped on the SUV bandwagon and made money doing it, but things were just more interesting with the FF.
On average, FFs will likely have more mileage on them than other Ferraris when they come to market. That means that from a collectability standpoint the always garaged and seldom driven examples will command a larger premium. Since the FF is a high-tech and very expensive car, consistent maintenance by Ferrari specialists is a must.
