After taunting us for quite a while, Ferrari has finally revealed the official details on their new Ferrari FF, an acronym for Ferrari Four. The new Ferrari FF GT sports car concept is expected to make its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, and a production version will be out by 2012. Ahead of its debut next month Ferrari has released some pictures of the car in action in the snow. The FF is the successor to the famed 612 Scaglietti and so it had it to be better in every aspect, and it is!

Pininfarina designed the concept car and Ferrari says the car is a revolution and less of an evolution. This is the first model from Maranello to have four wheel drive (4RM) and the most powerful four seater ever. The new FF features a shooting brake design with the 458 Italia borrowed front and a rear hatch underneath which there is 450 liters of boot space, up to 800 when rear  are seats down. Ferrari claims that the car can comfortably seat four owing to best cabin space.

The 4RM weighs 50% less than a conventional four-wheel drive system, maintaining perfect weight distribution (53% over the rear axle). Completely integrated with the car’s electronic dynamic control systems, the four-wheel drive technology performs on all terrains and in all conditions via continuous and intelligent predictive torque distribution to all four wheels. The FF is also equipped with the latest magnetorheological damping system (SCM3), as well as carbon-ceramic brakes from Brembo.

The new FF is run by a 6.3 liter direct injection V12 engine that delivers 660 HP at 8,000 rpm and a peak torque of 503 lbs-ft 6,000 rpm. With the car just weighing 1790 kg (3946 lb), 0-100 Km/h takes just 3.7 seconds and reaches 335 km/h (208 mph). Combined fuel consumption is 15.4 L/100 km (15.3 mpg US) and CO2 emissions are 360 g/km.

The Ferrari Four concept will feature a double-clutch transmission and combined fuel consumption of 15.4 L/100 km (15.3 mpg US) and CO2 emissions of 360 g/km. It will also come with impressive cargo capacity of 450 liters with the rear seats up and 800 liters with the rear seats down.
