2016 Ferrari GTC4Lusso

2016 Ferrari GTC4Lusso

The Ferrari FF becomes the GTC4Lusso with beautiful updates inside and out

Ferrari’s first AWD model, the Ferrari FF, was launched back in 2011 at the Geneva Motor Show. It was essentially a successor to the 612 Scaglietti and, outside of being AWD, it also strayed away from Ferrari’s traditional coupe styling. With its shooting-brake-like design and foldable seats, the FF offered 28 cubic feet of cargo room, while still packing a V-12 engine with impressive performance numbers – something you just don’t see from exotics of this caliber.

Even with its unusual design, the FF turned out to be pretty successful, and was set for a facelift that would debut for the 2016 model year. Since the announcement of the FF’s upcoming facelift, we’ve seen the spy shots and heard all the rumors. Just a couple months ago, we even created a rendering depicting what the facelift might bring to the table. For what it’s worth, our rendering really wasn’t that far off, but Ferrari had a big surprise in store for us to go along with the long-awaited redesign.

Along with the release of official photos ahead of the car’s debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, Ferrari also announced that the Ferrari FF is no more. Yes, you read that right, the redesign also comes with a new name. Say goodbye to the FF and say hello to the Ferrari GTC4Lusso. There are some other sweet surprises to go with the name change as well, so join me as I take an in-depth look at the new GTC4Lusso on the inside and out.

Updated 03/02/2016: Ferrari unveiled the new GTC4Lusso at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

2014 Ferrari FF Tailor Made

2014 Ferrari FF Tailor Made

The Ferrari FF may be nearly three years old, but its shooting brake-like body and massive output figures continue to attract sports car enthusiasts the world over. It’s common knowledge Ferraris don’t need updates too often, and the FF is no exception. However, buyers have access to all sorts of visual upgrades through the company’s Tailor Made customization program, which is responsible for numerous bespoke, one-off sports cars. The FF too has received its fair share of attention from Tailor Made — the FF Dressage Edition is a great example — but Italians have a bunch of new features in store for the shooting brake.

To showcase the new, bespoke features developed for the FF, Ferrari created a trio of sports cars carrying never-before-seen exterior colors and interior amenities on this model. It’s not that the FF isn’t uniquely elegant or appealing enough in its standard guise, but Ferrari needs to maintain the exclusive image it benefits from in markets such as the Middle East and China. It might sound a bit ironic, but there’s always room to improve a Ferrari; all you need is a fat wallet.

2014 Ferrari "La Famiglia" Collection by Wheelsandmore

2014 Ferrari "La Famiglia" Collection by Wheelsandmore

It’s been a while since we last heard from Wheelsandmore. Actually, it’s been too long. But the German tuner knows how to make a comeback. Each and every time Wheelsandmore builds a program, you can count on it being comprehensive. The only thing different about this program is that it’s not limited to just one unit, but three; three Ferraris, to be exact.

The Ferrari F12berlinetta, the Ferrari FF, and the Ferrari California are all part of the tuner’s new "La Famiglia" program and all received the same tender, love, and care from Wheelsandmore, the kind that we’ve all come to know from the German company. Each Ferrari received a new set of wheels, obviously, and modest performance gains.

A handful of cosmetic upgrades were also given to the three Ferraris, although you’d be hard-pressed to notice them outside of the traditional Wheelsandmore decal that runs along the length of each Ferrari.

Take a good, long look at these new Ferrari programs from Wheelsandmore. All three share the undeniable character and flair of the German aftermarket company, right down to the gnarly set of wheels and those subtle performance improvements.

Welcome back, Wheelsandmore. We missed you.

2014 Ferrari FF Dressage Edition

2014 Ferrari FF Dressage Edition

The Ferrari FF grand tourer was presented in 2011 and launched for the 2012 model year. The FF name stands for "Ferrari Four," which hints at the vehicle’s four-seat interior and its four-wheel-drive configuration. Often described as a three-door shooting brake, the FF is Ferrari’s first production all-wheel-drive model.

The four-wheel-drive system is an innovative unit engineered and patented by Ferrari. Dubbed 4RM, it is around 50 percent lighter than a conventional system. It splits the power between the four wheels as needed and it’s activated when the FF is driven in the "Comfort" or "Snow" modes. Otherwise, the FF functions as a rear-wheel-drive sports car.

Although it’s remained unchanged since its introduction, the FF can be customized via numerous personalization programs or Ferrari’s Special Projects division. Coming into 2015, the FF gains a special-edition model via Ferrari’s first Tailor-Made Center in Asia Pacific. Recently opened in Shanghai, China, the brand-new center showcased its potential with a couple of bespoke Ferraris, one of them being the FF Dressage Edition.

2014 Ferrari SP FFX

2014 Ferrari SP FFX

Earlier this month, Ferrari filled some patent drawings revealing a new model that many people believed was the new Ferrari California. On the same day, Ferrari also filed a patent for the new "SP FFX" name and an accompanying logo. These two occurrences on the same day lead us to believe that those patent drawings were, in fact, of the SP FFX.

First things first; why is it unlikely that these drawings are of the new California? Mainly because the car showed in the images featured Ferrari FF door mirrors, headlights, taillights and general proportions. These make us believe that we were actually looking at a special FF Coupe.

The SP FFX name is a little unclear, but we do know that SP stands for Special Projects. As for the "FFX;" that part makes it pretty clear that a special edition FF is on its way.

Updated 04/28/2014: More images of the upcoming SP FXX surfaced online today, revealing just how cool Ferrari’s latest special project will look. We also got a few new details on the engine. (Carscoops)

2016 Ferrari FF Coupe

2016 Ferrari FF Coupe

While we can’t argue its performance numbers, the Ferrari FF isn’t your regular Ferrari, thanks to its grand tourer setup with a shooting brake-like body and seating for four. And by "seating for four," we mean seating for four adults; not just an extra pair of cramped and nearly useless seats that force you to tuck your knees under your chin.

Somewhat criticized for its looks, the FF is about to lose its rear seats and hatch, and spawn a coupe version with a more conventional design. At least that’s what Car and Driver claims in a recent report, adding that the restyled FF could be arriving for the 2016 model year.

The coupe version will share everything with the already familiar FF, including its all-wheel-drive system and naturally aspirated, 6.3-liter, V-12 engine. The latter packs 660 horsepower and 503 pound-feet of torque and would probably push it from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3.7 seconds, on its way to a top speed set beyond the 208-mph mark.

The possibility of having one more Ferrari on the way is great news, but there’s one thing puzzling me. An FF-based coupe will likely resemble the F12berlinetta. The only two differences in sight would be the F12berlinetta’s more powerful engine and lack of all-wheel drive, so it remains to be seen how Ferrari will market these cars.

Note: Current Ferrari FF pictured here.

2013 Ferrari FF Czech Edition

2013 Ferrari FF Czech Edition

Ferrari’s Tailor Made Personalization Program has produced yet another one-off FF supercar, further proving that the Italian automaker is serious about giving customers exactly what they want.

The latest model was actually built for Czech dealership SF Motors and has been appropriately called the "Czech Edition". There are no performance modifications on this one, but what it does carry is a host of aesthetic upgrades that definitely differentiates itself from the rest of the FFs roaming around the world these days.

The FF Czech Edition comes with a matte-orange finish that Ferrari Tailor Made Personalization Program calls "Rosso Dino.” Whatever name it came up with for this, it looks absolutely sick. On top of the matte orange finish is a matte black roof, a carbon packet, Daytona seats for the interior, a high-tech JBL sound system with a pair of Ferrari-branded headphones, a passenger display, and a "Specially made for Czech" plaque complete with the Prancing Horse logo on one end and the Czech flag on the other.

If you really think about it, there are not a whole lot of upgrades on this one, not even something that packages itself as a "Czech Edition" like a flag badge or something. But either way, this one-off FF looks pretty sweet.

At a whopping 7,390,000 CZK (€295,000/$385,700) price tag, it had better be “sweet.”

Big thanks to Ondřej Vávra and Aleš Chytráček of CzechFerrari.Cz for the photos!

2013 Ferrari FF Beverly Hills Police Officers Association Ball Edition

2013 Ferrari FF Beverly Hills Police Officers Association Ball Edition

The Ferrari FF has been making its rounds as a special edition model recently, including a one-off appearance as Ian Poulter’s custom vehicle.

Recently, Black and White Car Rental Beverly Hills took another FF and gave it a nice freshening up for a special occasion: the Beverly Hills Police Officers Association Ball.

Apparently, it’s not enough that Black and White is the first company to offer the FF as a rental vehicle, but it also went out of its way to give the FF a unique look for the aforementioned occasion. The car was repainted in a black and white paint finish — coincidentally the same two-tone colors of law enforcement agency — with the car doors and roof painted white while the rest, including the trunk, hood, front fenders and rear quarter panels, were painted black.

Just to remind everyone of what the car is trying to honor, the Beverly Hills Police logo was emblazoned on the doors.

There doesn’t appear to be any performance modifications tacked into this special edition FF, but that’s not a big deal, as the FF comes with a 6.3-liter V-12 engine that produces 660 horsepower and 503 pound-feet of torque. That’s plenty of muscle.

2012 Ferrari FF "Ian Poulter" Edition

2012 Ferrari FF "Ian Poulter" Edition

Technically, there’s really no Ferrari FF "Ian Poulter" Edition, but seeing as this unique FF is a ’one-off’ that was delivered to British golfer Ian Poulter, then you can understand why this car holds special regard in our eyes.

Presented at the 2012 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, this particular FF also holds distinction as the first Tailor Made car in the US with an interior design that fits right up Poulter’s tee. No golf pun intended.

For his custom-spec’d model, Poulter opted to deck the interior of his pristine white Ferrari FF with a "Sabbia" triple-layer livery that’s finely complemented by black Poltrona Frau leather and tartan. Matching the peculiar chose of trim is the prevalent use of carbon fiber and high-tech fabric sports elements, which also comes as a first for Ferrari.

Despite earning fame as a professional golfer, Poulter is also a known car enthusiast with a garage that includes a Ford GT, a Bentley Continental GT, and a Ferrari California. With all due respect to those cars - and they’re fine machines by any stretch of the imagination - Poulter’s new, one-off Ferrari FF should definitely have a garage of its own.

2012 Ferrari FF Vindicator by SR Auto Group

2012 Ferrari FF Vindicator by SR Auto Group

The Ferrari FF made its world debut in 2011 at the Geneva Motor Show and since then, the only major update it has received came from Novitec Rosso. Tuners just aren’t that excited about revamping Ferrari’s oddly shaped sports coupe and one look at the vehicle will shed some light for many as to why. Now, American tuner SR Auto Group is attempting to justify the FF’s existence by coming up with an upgrade package of their own. The package is called the FF Vindicator, which is surely SR Auto Group’s attempt at convincing us all that this will be the package to redeem the sports coupe.

This new kit was inspired by the Project Era which was based on the Ferrari 458 Italia. It consists of painting the car in a cool white finish and slapping on a new set of PUR wheels in a 1NE design. This setup may have worked for the 458 Italia, but that is another beast entirely. The Ferrari FF may have a 6,262 cc direct injection V12 engine that delivers 660 HP at 8,000 rpm and a peak torque of 503 lbs-ft 6,000 rpm, but its design is just a rolling pile of aluminum poop.

2012 Ferrari FF by Novitec Rosso

2012 Ferrari FF by Novitec Rosso

Ever since the Ferrari FF was introduced over a year ago, the car hasn’t seen a whole lot of aftermarket love from some of the biggest tuners in the world. But now that Novitec Rosso has jumped into the picture with their first program for the FF, all’s well in the world again.

The comprehensive program for the Ferrari FF includes new aerodynamic components, a couple of styling modifications, and a subtle performance upgrade. Sounds about right to us.

The first order of business was the addition of new carbon fiber components. The kit includes a new front spoiler lip, a roof spoiler, a rear spoiler, side skirts, and a rear diffuser. Carbon fiber surrounds for the taillights were also added, as were matching black side markers, carbon exterior mirrors, LED rear fog lamps, a carbon fiber roof, and a radiator grille. In addition, Novitec Rosso also fitted the FF with a new set of 21" and 22" ultra-light forged wheels with an NF4 wheel design that features five double spokes and wrapped in Pirelli PZero high-performance tires.

Inside, Novitec Rosso is offering a slew of custom enhancements, including, but not limited to, carbon fiber scuff plates and a fully customized leather and Alcantara interior.

Under the hood of the FF lies a 6.3-liter, 12-cylinder engine that produces 660 horsepower. Thanks to a re-calibrated ECU system and the installation of Novitec Rosso’s stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system, the output has increased to an impressive 702 horsepower with a new top speed of 211 mph, up from the standard model’s 208 mph top speed.

UPDATE 07/26/12: Nobody needs to remind Novitec Rosso about their tuning credentials. But in the event you have any doubts about their talents, feel free to check out the video of what they did to the Ferrari FF’s exhaust. Click the photo and turn up the volume, peeps!

2012 Ferrari FF Neiman Marcus Edition

2012 Ferrari FF Neiman Marcus Edition

From the company that once gave us a special edition Chevrolet Camaro Convertible comes another mouth-watering exotic that figures to shoot up to the top of our holiday wish-lists.

Yes, Neiman Marcus’ 2011 Christmas Book has finally been released, and lo and behold, a special edition Ferrari FF is the highlight of the book’s "Fantasy Gifts" section.

The retail company is no stranger to including desirable vehicles on their annual holiday book so it wasn’t all that surprising to find a special edition FF on the pages of the Christmas Book.

So what exactly makes this particular FF a special edition? Well, for one, it’s only limited to 10 models at a little under $400,000 a pop. Then there are the unique additions to the car, including a special Grigio Caldo paint finish, a special interior plaque highlighting its special edition designation, and then there’s a spot at the 2012 Ferrari Winter Driving Experience in Aspen, Colorado.

But the best benefit of the FF Neiman Marcus Edition is that you immediately cut the line of all the prospective owners of the newest Ferrari supercar. Whereas everybody else will have to wait a few years to get a hold of their machines, the 10 lucky buyers of the special edition FF will receive their vehicles in the spring of 2012.

This news really shouldn’t be all that surprising considering a limited vehicle goes through the same frenzied "sold out" episode every year.

2012 Ferrari FF Maximus by DMC

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.
