As you already know, Ferrari had debuted its first ever AWD system at the Geneva Motor Show. The automaker had brought in its new 4RM all-wheel drive system for the Ferrari Four concept or “FF” at the motor show last week.

The 4RM system could be defined as a 50 percent lighter than a standard all-wheel drive system. The mechanism goes as such: The PTU (power transfer unit) takes its torque directly from the crankshaft. At the same time, the two separate multi-plate clutches drive the front wheels independently.

The FF concept incorporates a four seated luxury interior and has a small trunk placed in the rear. The manufacturer has loaded it with 2 golf bags to demonstrate its capacity.

The power is attained from the mid-front mounted 6.3 liter V12 engine that churns out 660 PS (485 kW / 651 bhp) and 683 Nm (504 lb-ft) of torque mated to a seven-speed double-clutch gearbox. The car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and reaches a top speed of 335 km/h (208 mph).
