Ferrari brought its controversially styled FF wagon/coupe to Australia from February 2012, albeit in very limited numbers.
The FF offered a rare level of practicality for a supercar, offering a boot capacity of 450 litres with the rear seats up and a massive 800 litres with the seats folded down.
The design for the Italian car-maker’s first all-wheel-drive model featured a wagon-like back half, but stuck with a more traditional Ferrari-esque front end.
Power came from Ferrari’s direct-injection 6.3-litre V12 that produced 485kW of power, propelling the car to 100km/h in a claimed 3.7 seconds before hitting a top speed of 335km/h.
The FF came with a seven-speed dual-clutch transaxle transmission and the Maranello based car-maker claimed that its patented 4RM all-wheel-drive system was 50 per cent lighter than a conventional AWD layout.
Fuel economy for the FF was a claimed 15.4 litres per 100 kilometres, although this may not have concerned too many buyers.
Ferrari provided a luxurious interior experience for both the driver and passengers with magnesium-framed sports seats, a 1280-watt 16-speaker surround-sound entertainment system with screens for rear-seat passengers, and a centre console-mounted screen for the infotainment and navigation functions.
