Review Summary:

The FF is the world’s fastest four-seater. It is certainly a unique car at the higher end of the market.

Pros

Brilliant engine
Has four seats and a decent sized boot
Unique transmission

Cons

Slightly questionable styling

Looks

From the front, the 2014 Ferrari FF looks strikingly similar to the F12 Berlinetta, and as we have already established, that’s good. But then you see it from the side, and you think “hang on, is that an estate car?” Not quite, but it’s as close to an estate car as Ferrari will ever get. They’ve designed a genuinely original car that looks like nothing else; bravo to the boys from Maranello.

Feel

There is nothing disappointing about the FF on the inside. The interior is arguably not as mad as you would expect, when compared to its brothers and sisters, but it is no less refined and stylish. Comfortable seats and ergonomic controls are aplenty.

Engineering

The unique “shooting-brake” design of the body means that two adults can fit comfortably in the back. Usually, in this situation, you would expect that the adults in question would have to have no legs, but there is actually a surprising amount of space back there. It also has 450 litres of boot space! In a Ferrari!

What’s on offer?

A 6.3 litre V12 naturally aspirated engine sits underneath the bonnet. Sitting beneath the accelerator pedal are 651 horses, ready to be whipped to transport you and your three passengers in speed and style. The FF is also equipped with dual transmission – two gearboxes. Trying to understand how this works is no easy task, but those who have road tested the FF give it a thumbs up. Prices begin at around AED 1,080,000.

Summing it

You want a four-seater car, what are your options? You could have a small VW Scirocco, or you could have a big BMW 6 Series Coupe. But these cars are outdone by the fact that they are competing with similar cars that come with five seats. They have less to offer. The Ferrari FF, however, is competing in a market where its rivals have only two seats, so it has more to offer. I think I’ve made my point…
