Generally speaking, Ferraris are some of the few models in the world that shouldn’t be touched by tuners. However, when it comes to the FF our opinion varies a bit due to the fact that it’s by far one of the most... hmm, let’s say "not well done" Ferraris ever. Basically, it’s just plain ugly so we were ecstatic to see that German tuner, DMC, had already started working on revising the model. There’s not much they could do for the overall look of the sports coupe, but the added power sure makes it a bit more enticing.
They say a good personality can override horrendous looks, and we agree, but a great personality helps that much more. Taking that into consideration, DMC added a new set of twin superchargers, a new exhaust system with 90 mm tailpipes, a new intake manifold, larger fuel-injectors, high-flow air filters and a large intercooler to achieve an extra 216 HP out of the ugly duckling. Now the 660 HP V12 engine found in the standard FF can deliver a mind-blowing 876 HP and 636 lb-ft of torque. The 0 to 60 mph sprint can now be made in 3.2 seconds, while top speed will go up to more than 211 mph.
Hit the jump for more details on the Ferrari FF by DMC.
DMC didn’t forget about the exterior entirely so they did their part by modifying some of the FF’s elements to give the design more of an XX feel. The front bumper was completely redone in carbon fiber and incorporates sharper edges with a longer stance. The sides now incorporate some new air scoops, while the rear end of the FF was also done up in a carbon fiber rear diffuser and a taller trunk spoiler. DMC’s Carbon Fiber technology allows the new components to shave off 154lbs from the vehicle’s standard weight, making it that much faster. The aggressive look is then finished with lowering springs, a front-axle lift up system, and lightweight wheels, 21" at the front and 22" at the rear, wrapped around Pirelli PZero tires.
We can’t say we think the Ferrari FF looks that much better with DMC’s styling additions, but we love what they do for the performance aspect of the vehicle. 876 HP and a 3.2 seconds 0-60 mph sprint time is just downright sensual.
