• 2012 Ferrari FF Maximus by DMC

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.

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.

Well, what more could I say? Ferrari always got the style and the speed that people could not deny. This one looks great on its full black finish. The bumper makeover was good.

Well,the boost power of this car is kind of impressive, and I would say that 216 hp added speed for the FF is incredible! And I bet its 600+ torque will surely give the car a rocket-like speed.

The side mirrors of this Maximus look so cute on this vehicle, and I really love the angst that brought by the unique shape of its headlight, and even though it is only on a matte body paint it still looks good on that.

I love the speed performance of this vehicle! It is so powerful for a tuning version vehicle, and well; I have to agree with the article that this FF seems ugly on its exterior appearance.

Maximus is really like a batman car. Anyway, I noticed that it was oozing with car appeal and aggressiveness. Well, the angst is obviously there and I bet no one can’t resist this one, it is so cool!

Maximus is really a remarkable sports car! Well, the speed performance of this is really awesome and powerful. The aftermarket of this sport car will surely worth waiting for.

Honestly, I was impressed with the awesome speed performance of the vehicle during its first debut. No wonder why this vehicle was already sold out for the next three years! I hope to see an aftermarket version for this car.

Hey! Its quite a month before a tuned up version was out. And up to now, I haven’t seen a follow up production. I wonder on when will the Ferrari released a newer version of the FF.

  (287) posted on 08.9.2011

Well, I think the key for the high speed performance of the car is its carbon fiber richness. I love the modified exterior of the car and into power output as well!

  (398) posted on 08.9.2011

It seems that even the DMC is not satisfy with the speed performance of the car. The power output of 876 hp for the car is just enough for the v12 technology plus it’s faster in terms of 0-60 mph.

  (797) posted on 07.25.2011

Agreed. The speed performance of the car is very impressive for a tuning version. Actually, the DMC have boost the power output of the car into an impressive figure!BTW, I guess the carbon fiber material used in the car increases its speed.

This is what I’m talking about! The car have an impressive speed performance as expected from an aftermarket version. However, too bad that they haven’t modified the exterior of the Italia.

A trial and error? How do you say so LiveLongCoolCar? It’s cool you know. This not a turn down for me. The color is some kind of lame, but it makes the FF strange and exotic.

Hey, I heard that Lamborghini is developing an SUV. Well, if Ferrari is crazy enough to follow suit on that one, I think they already have something to work on, just take a look at the FF.

  (441) posted on 06.24.2011

Ferrari means red. Just kidding. I’m not really into its color but I know that this one is obviously just a trial-error launch. I don’t think fans would love this one. A big turn down for Ferrari smiley

I actually noticed that one too. Really does look a bit like the Z3, but probably because both cars actually fill the same niche. Nevertheless, I would say that this one is still much better than the standard FF.

The fact that it looks like an uber expensive Italian made version of Z3 bothers me .. ALOT

The 612 Scaglietti > The FF design wise

The exterior design look good but the engine and the total performance is the best. Tuning up a Ferraris engine I think is the best way of tuning it. Because a Ferrari’s design is simple perfect.

Well, it still looks bad when you look at it from the side, maybe they can work on that station wagon rear a bit more. But this one is still very much a Ferrari.

Well, if you think of it, racing at Boneville isn’t really all about looks, but rather more about speed. And with the specs that they have on this baby, then they really have no problem in that department.
