New Name, Updated Looks for Ferrari FF

Ferrari GTC4 Lusso takes its bow in Geneva.

From FF to GTC4 Lusso, Ferrari has a new name and more for its wagon-like supercar.

The most unlikely Ferrari is going to stick around – though it’s getting a number of updates, and a new name.

Originally known as the FF, the wagon-like oddity will now be known as the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso, the Italian maker confirmed today during a Geneva Motor Show news conference. The name dates back more than a half-century, recalling the legendary Ferrari 250 GT/L Lusso Berlinetta by Scaglietti, widely considered one of the most beautiful cars the automaker has ever produced.

That’s not necessarily what you’ll hear about the old FF, though it does earn kudos for the added functionality of its big cargo bay – something that has made the car a daily driver for many owners. It’s also helped Ferrari draw in younger buyers than typically walk into its showrooms.


First Look: Ferrari FF

A practical Ferrari?

Ferrari goes practical with the new FF.

A practical Ferrari?  If the very concept doesn’t scare you off, read on for more about the Italian automaker’s newest offering, which is making its world premiere at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.

There will be plenty who view the new Ferrari FF as an oxymoron, no doubt.  But there’s no question the maker from Maranello wanted to do more than just evolve the outgoing 612.  Instead, it has come up with a wagon, er hatchback, er shooting brake.  Well, expect a lot of different descriptions to apply to what might be thought of as Ferrari’s interpretation of the Porsche Panamera.

In the Know!

While the looks might take a while to grow on you, the new FF otherwise lives up to its pedigree.  It’s the most powerful 4-seater the Italian marque has ever produced, a direct-injects 6.3-liter V12 under the FF’s long, low hood, churning 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.
