Making its world debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, the Ferrari FF was a shooting-brake-style four-seater offering buyers a Ferrari first: a full-size Grand Tourer with a 650-bhp V12 engine and 4-wheel drive.

The car was designed by Pininfarina under the direction of Ferrari’s own chief designer, Flavio Manzoni. Ferrari had previously dabbled with four driven wheels with the 1987 408 Integrale concept, but the V12-engined FF is the first Ferrari to make series production with such a system.
