Going where no Ferrari has gone before? The new 4-seat, 4-wheel-drive Ferrari FF.

We’ll skip the references to BMW’s quirky Z Coupe, of a few years back, and just note that the new Ferrari FF is a distinctive looking entry into the Italian maker’s line-up, one that is likely to generate some very polarizing opinions even before it rolls into showrooms.

The most powerful 4-seater the company has ever produced, the name is a double acronym, short for both Ferrari Four, and Ferrari Four-wheel-drive.

The replacement for the outgoing Scaglietti 612, the new Ferrari FF, says the maker, “represents not so much an evolution as a true revolution.”

That starts with the direct-injects 6.3-liter V* under the FF’s long, low hood, which churns out 651 horsepower and 504 lb-ft of torque.  You’ll see 60 in less than 3.7 seconds, Ferrari claims, on the way to a top speed of 208 mph.
