Video: Tiff Needell drives the Ferrari FF

In their latest episode, Fifth Gear got the opportunity to drive the new Ferrari FF on the snowy mountains of the Plan De Corones in the Dolomites. Tiff Needell got behind the wheel after being airlifted up to 2,350 meters. Watch the video to see what he has to say about Ferrari’s new sports model.

The Ferrari FF is powered by a 6.3 liter V12 engine that delivers a total of 651 HP at 8,000 rpm with a maximum torque of 503 lbs-ft at 6,000 rpm. Out of torque available for the sports car, 367 lbs-ft can be accessed from just 1,000 rpm. Mated to Ferrari’s patented 4RM four-wheel-drive system and a 7-speed transaxle dual-clutch F1 gearbox, the Ferrari FF goes from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 207 mph.

haha. The figure performance of the Ferrari FF has no match with the Gumpert Apollo that was used in the Nurburgring track! The power output of the Apollo almost reached up to 700 hp higher than this vehicle.

Wow! The iconic Ferrari FF was driven by the legendary Tiff Needell! The platform and styling of the car is quite stunning! Plus, the figure performance of the FF is powerful! I think the power output of the car is similar to the Gumpert Apollo! I would love see a race between these cars.

Yeah. It is some kind of disappointing to show this car, which is already sold out. I think they only wanted to show that it’s our loss because we did not reserve to buy for this one.

Why feature a car that is totally sold out? But knowing its features is indeed informative. I was amazed to know that they got a large boot than a ford focus. That’s amazing isn’t it?

Too bad that this car is sold out for the next three years, I lose my chance of owning one. The engine performance of the car is very impressive as well as it platform and design. i wonder if they will be making an aftermarket version of this car.

I’m so envious of the job done by Tiff Needell. Hell! He got the chance to drive the high speed performing sportscar without spending too much and at the same time he enjoys it! The horsepower of the car is quite higher compare to the Italia though the torque is not that much.
