The New Ferrari FF

Ferrari has taken the wraps off their new four seat flagship, the FF, and it's quite interesting.  It's Ferrari's first attempt at an four wheel drive model and the first fastback, or shooting brake, design since the iconic 250 Breadvan.

This replacement for the 612 Scaglietti features a 6.3L V12 with 651HP/504TQ and can accelerate from 0-60 in 3.7 seconds despite its 3,946lb weight.  That acceleration is no doubt aided by the new Ferrari part time four wheel drive system called 4M.  According to Ferrari, the FF should hit a top speed of 208MPH.

Thanks to the shooting brake body style, there should be ample room for four people with good headroom in the rear.  Folding down the rear seats turns it into a decent hauler with about as much cargo space as a small sized wagon.

Here is a youtube video of the car during testing.
